this is what happens when i'm in need of a hair appointment.

cardi: base exchange / tee: urban outfitters / skirt, belt, leggings: f21
shoes: guess / nails: OPI big apple red

it's no joke about the hair. most of the time, the hair is down - either wavy or straight. then i rock this hair-do. it is called one of the following names, depending on the day:

1. when-i'm-in need-of-a-hair-appointment-do (already noted)
2. when-the-weather-is-super-humid-and-wearing-it-down-just-doesn't-do-it-do
3. when-i'm-running-out-the-door-do
4. when-i-served-on-the-mission-field-do
5. and when-i-wash-my-face-do

of course, when i'm washing my face, i don't drench it in as much hairspray as i would when i actually walk out the door with it. like i said, this mop has a mind of it's own, therefore, hairspray (lots of it!) is a necessity, plus it's A LOT of hair (i do not say that like it's a good thing).

oh! and i attempted the whole blue and yellow combo look that has been catching my eye lately. remember me yakking about it last week? well, here you go with the whole color blocking thing. it's still rather mute with the gray and black thrown in there but i still love it. i love me some color. lots of it!
as for the hair, i think i'll schedule an appointment this week.
if not, then you'll be seeing the hair up like this for awhile.

what do you do when your hair
is driving you a little nutty?

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]

  1. My hair looks eerily similar. Are you telling me I need a hair appointment? Just kidding my mirror tells me everyday. These 2 inch roots aren't fooling anyone.

  6. The yellow/blue combo works well in this outfit!!

    When my hair is driving me nutty, I call my hairdresser pronto - he's been doing my hair for the past 15 years! Until I go to see him, my hair goes into perma-bun!

  7. Your hair looks cute like that, actually! You can totally pull it off! I usually go for two quick braids when it's humid or my hair just doesn't feel like cooperating.

  8. love the hair. mine often looks like that !!

    and I also love the yellow cardigan... You look so ready for summer... :)

  9. I loovee that colour combo. You make me want to try to wear more colours. I'm a very neutral colour person with clothes.

    Your hair looks cute anyway! I pretty much tie my hair into a bun or a pony everyday. Long hair can be irritating while trying to do things. x

  11. I actually wish my hair would do a bun that big. I think all of my hair up in a bun = less big than a baseball.

  12. Your hair looks so cute in a bun. I like the blue and yellow together, so springy :)

  13. Ooh, honey. I totally understand! My hair (almost down to my waist now, which is ridiculous) has been put on probation & will live in a super lazy wadded up bun until my hair appt on the 18th. Apparently, my hair guy cuts the hair of each and every freakin' person in this town. Ridic.

    PS: LOVING that color combo!

  17. You look really cute with the bun! I was rocking a yellow cardigan on Friday! Hehe, it's just so springy! :-) Love the outfit. :-) Are you going to do anything different with your hair - ie bangs? *wink*

  18. You are so funny! my hair is usually up on my head. if not in the morning, by lunch time i'm over it and I've created a bun on top of my head. a place I used to work at, some of the girls there called it high hair, because when I meant business i would put it super high! ha!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I pretty much always wear my hair like this (except for a few days right after I get a haircut) haha
    I love the colors in your outfit!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. lol. When I had looooong hair I wore it in a bun ALL the time!! So I cut it to force me to do things with it.....and I still love to pull it back in a pony tail. :)
    I love your outfit/color combo!! It is so beautiful!!!

  22. :) I do the same thing...ponytail and a huge headband to make it look like I don't need a mega hair cut.

    Great outfit, I agree the blue/yellow combo is beautiful.

  24. I love using dry shampoo after not washing my hair for a couple days - it's a great way to not dry out your hair from shampooing it everyday.

  47. the blue and yellow is working for you! it's been one of my favourite combos for ever, and you're just proving it's for a good reason!

    since I have shorter hair (for now) I tend to throw a scarf in it or plop a beret on it when it won't behave (ie half the week). I've finally decided to grow it out again. I'm sure I'll have changed my mind by August.

  48. I love the color blocking here. Winter is getting me so down at this point, I should probably be making more effort to add color to my wardrobe to brighten things up.

    As for the hair, I have a ridiculous amount of wild hair as well. When mine starts to bother me, I chop it all off :D

    exoh,
