Ohhhh, hair….

We kind of talk about it a lot over here. But of course, you know that already. I’m not about to chop my hair (only Garance can truly rock that), or test out another at-home color kit (my ombré is still going strong, despite my efforts to color over it. I know, I’m refusing to cut it off because my hair has never been this long and it makes me feel like a Victoria’s Secret Angel- if only for 30 seconds- everyday.). There is one hair style that I am constantly lusting over: the perfect pony tail.

Everytime I see one, I immediately want to run home and throw my hair up. Whether it’s a slightly messy, J.Crew-esque style or something simple and sleek, like in the photo above. I stand in front of my mirror, toss my hair back and off my face and loop the pony through a binder (in Minnesota, we say hair binder, okay?). It’s always slightly off, but not in a model off-duty way, just straight up not looking right. What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I master what every cheerleader has been able to perfect since age 5? A SIMPLE PONY TAIL.

I think part of it might be that I am still coming to terms with the fact that I, like everyone else, have a forehead. I’ve hid my forehead behind a variety of bang styles and now, that I am officially bang free, I’m learning to take my back forehead…or something. So I go home every night (like seriously, every night) and try to master the art of the pony tail.

I’ll let you know when it happens, but until then, your tips are much appreciated.
