Well, this is it.
It’s been 30 fun, challenging and creative days. I’m a little relieved to be finished, but I’m also a little disappointed it’s over. Mind you, the 30-day hair challenge was no easy feat, but in all, it was actually really fun.
Adjoining French braids.
Inspiration: Diane Kruger.
Notes: This style is pretty easy to execute. Honestly, if you know how to French braid, you can pretty much French braid in just about any direction with a little practice. This guy’s just a simple double French braid that adjoins into a single one to finish the pony.
Fishtail milkmaid braids.
Inspiration: Dianna Agron (in theory).
Notes: I liked the look of it (hell, I love any kind of fishtail), but it didn’t really feel like the braids were going to stay in place all day. And from the back, it looked a little sparse. Red carpet ready I was not.
Inspiration: this photo.
Notes: I’ll be honest: I’ve been attempting to learn how to do the waterfall braid since approximately day nine. With a mix of video and photo tutorials, I finally got the jist of it at around midnight on day twenty-eight. And I think it looks pretty cool, right?
Day thirty! Day thirty! It’s day thirty!
Messy beehive to wrapped pony.
Notes: On the eve of day thirty, I felt a little vintage-inspired. Hence the beehive. This style was fun, but it takes a lot of back-combing and hairspray to make that baby stick. In other words, this isn’t a hairstyle you try for a minute and then go on to something else – once you start, you’re committed. But I kind of liked how it turned out.
No promises, but I’m thinking a week-long vintage hair challenge might be in the works. I’m attempting some victory rolls, a good ol’ pompadour…who knows? I’ll keep you posted.
