Up Do's

Every since I started growing my hair out, I've been able to put my hair up in ways that I couldn't before when I was getting it cut regularly. Up do styles have a cornucopia of benefits (okay, so I probably didn't use that right in the sentence, but you still get the idea). For one, up do hairstyles are always in style, and can easily be transformed into elegant or classy styles, as well as casual ones. You can't go wrong with wearing your hair up, so expect tons of compliments; I actually get more complements on my hair when I wear it up than when I wear it down! Secondly, wearing your hair up really does help with keeping you cooler in the summer, trust me on this. When my hair first started growing out a few months ago, I used to wear it down almost everyday, but by the time I would get to work, my head would be hot and my face and neck would be all sweaty and oily. But then I started wearing my hair up, and the excess heat heat and sweating stopped completely! Even when I'm indoors I can tell the difference between my body temperature when I have my hair up vs when I have my hair down. Lastly, wearing your hair up deters creepy old homeless guys, and I speak from experience with this! When I wore my hair down, this creepy old homeless guy actually came up to me when I was standing at the trolley stop and asked me for my number because he had been watching me and like my hair! You can imagine how freaked out I was by this, so since then I don't wear my hair down when I'm out. This method has apparently been working, since the instances of creepy old men flirting with me have dropped completely (I have always thought this was quite perverted considering the fact that most people think I'm 12 or 13 anyway, and these men are obviously way over 30)!

Since I'm actually very bad with styling my hair, I have to rely on web searches and Youtube to find new hairstyles and how to do them. Here are a few of my favorites.

  2. That's so true about the whole having your hair up. I always have mine up when it's warm but I prefer to have it down. I look better that way even though others say it suits me ;)

  7. It's funny to me that you get hit on less... because in that one MadTV clip, the girl got hit on cause she had an updo. Remember that?

    1. Yeah, it is weird! I think it's a regional thing though because in the south guys really go for you when you have your hair up, but in Philadelphia most women only wear their hair down. Strange still lol!!
