tickle me tuesday {hairy tales}

Do you ever get stuck in a rut?  You wear the same jeans because they fit just the way you want them or you wear your hair the same way almost daily...in a ponytail?  No...you don't do that?  I'm the only one? 
Over the past week, I've been branching out more.  You see, I've been growing my hair out & I am not very skilled at styling it (never have been which is why it's been short for the past five years or so).
But I came across some inspiration...thanks to a tweet from @allorahandmade & Pinterest for providing lovely photos when I needed it.
I'm talking about the side bun & its many variations...check 'em out!

this one scares me the most...I cannot french braid my own hair...but I want to so badly!

Oh, I hope I can be brave & try these.

  1. I love side buns! I wore my hair in one for my wedding and it was perfect. of course.... I cut off almost 10 inches a month later and can only pull off a nubby ponytail now :)

  3. I recommend buying a Barbie with long hair. I didn't even realize I was teaching myself to French braid as I'd play with their hair in grade school.

  5. Pretty sure I'm going to do a side bun for my wedding...the fiancé likes my hair up, but I don't want to do a plain bun. The side bun is a little softer. So pretty!

  6. Love those styles =) I can't wait 'til my hair grows out again. You can totally master the french braid.

  10. You inspired me to french braid my hair today. Tips: start with damp hair, start half way down, don't stop if you think you've messed up or something has gone wrong, put in a little hairspray when you're done, and bring bobby pins with you just in case!
