30-day hair challenge, part seven (and final).

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.

So here’s the grand finale. If you’re just joining us, catch up with partsĀ one, two, three, four, five and six.

Day twenty-seven

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.

Day twenty-eight

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.

Day twenty-nine

Waterfall braid.

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.

Inspiration: this photo mixed with this tutorial.

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.

What’s next.

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.
