My life in the last week seems to have gone through a 180-degree shift. Is it because of a new job or maybe a new relationship? No. It is because I got side swept bangs. You heard me!
Now I come under the category of people whose hair is sympathetically handled by hairdressers. 'You should try a different conditioner', they say sadly, with a glazed look in their eyes. Well, most hairstylists out here just don't get hair that isn't long, sleek, black and shiny. So I was always the girl who looked wistfully at other girl's gorgeous fringed hairstyles, too afraid to ask for it on my own wavy to curly hair.
Until I realized I had a pair of world class hair-cutting scissors and my head, both safely reposing in my closet! And this magic video. And the rest is history!
Moral of the story is: Everything looks more amazing with bangs. ponytails, braided hairstyles, the simple two-side hair pin, the milkmaid braid I've tried out in this post, everything. I could easily overlook the frantic fear I face of my bangs getting out of place in the wind while sitting in a bus, or the need to carry a tiny comb around!
This fantastic DIY video explains this easy braided hairstyle, it took me exactly four minutes to do! Its perfect for summer, keeps all your hair where it should be-on top of your head!
Also, my love story with head flowers continues. I was so happy to find a hamper full of flowers, c/o Ayesha from their 'Purple Haze' collection, at my doorstep! Ayesha has an amazing range of unique and quirky hair accessories. They will definitely appeal to the Bohemian in you! And they are so affordable too!
