On the Side, Please

Good morning, everyone, and happy Monday!

I'm attempting to be chipper today in hopes that it will be more bearable to start another fully-packed week. It's rainy here again today so it's going to take extra effort :)

I had my hair done last week by a new stylist and absolutely fell in love. My hair is a 'somewhere in between' length right now, and I love it for everyday styling. But what I wouldn't give to have long enough locks to wrap it in one of these glamorous side buns. I've developed a slight obsession with this gorgeous style and have been saving images for some time now. I think it's the perfect up-do for a party, a wedding or a special date night...

Obsessed. Especially when you add the side braid?! I suppose for now I'll just have to live vicariously through these photos or opt for some hair extensions!

Sending you happy Monday wishes, sweet friends!

I like this when it's soft and relaxed looking, like your hair just happened..althoughyou spent 20 minutes trying to ensure it didn't resemble a doughnut :) like mine always seems to!

I love these photos! A friend and I were just talking about how we wished we could make our attempts at different styles look more like this! I think I need a tutoring session!

Ah, now you have me craving an updo. Loving Taylor Swift's messy version--that one I think I could pull off :) Wishing you a very happy Monday Julie!!!

So smitten with these looks but my hair is what too thin to pull this off. Maybe one of those fake hair scrunchies. haha.

Hi Julie! I can totally see you in this style ... so hard to be patient! Hope you have a lovely week! ;)

Erin said...

I love these! I'm in an outdoor wedding this June and might make this my hairstyle- super easy and cool!

Oh my, I have definite hair envy! I very much wish my hair was long enough to do this. Hmmm, the hair pieces I bought for my sister's wedding may come in handy... But, this will involve much practice.

I love a good side bun, but I always have a heck of a hard time getting it to look messy without falling to pieces! I love these hair-DO's!

I could totally do it, but I don't know how. I'm a wear your hair as is kind of girl. I straighten it when I'm going out. Otherwise, it's just as is or in a ponytail. I can never fix my own hair.
