Best Laid Plans of A Simple Thing

I had a plan! That for one week, all the hairs on my head would be in a sock bun...

But it was only supposed to be for a week.
Knowing that I was going to be really busy for the next few months I decided to lay out a plan, of sorts, about what I was going to do with my hair during this quite hectic time.

My initial plan was this:

Week 1 - Sock Bun
Weeks 2, 3, 4, 5 - Smallish Twists
Week 6 - Twistout (kinda - my twistouts are, at best, strange looking. At worst, plain offensive)
Weeks 7 and 8 - Chunky Twists

Ideally, my twists were supposed to be small, dinky and flattering, but hard wearing enough to last for four weeks. Easy, no?

I'll be lucky if I can get away with two weeks.

Now, it's looking more like this:

Week 1 and 2 - The Untouchable bun
Week 3 and 4 - The Half-baked Hairstyle/Chunky Twists
Week 5 and 6 - Fitness that couldn't be witnessed.
Week 7 - Daydreaming hair [finally!] and a twistout
Week 8 - A highly anti-climatic bun. 

At least it's all protective....and I'm certainly keeping it interesting.


  1. I love this bun! One day I will be able to achieve a low bun. Until then, I'll keep trying to find things to do with my hair. :-)

    Hope you enjoyed your trip!

  2. Thank you! I think creativity is definitely a big help in not getting bored/frustrated. And I was really proud of that bun that day - hence the close up photo! >.<


Thank you for your comment! It will make my day :)
