Updo Instructions

I haven't posted a hair-related post in awhile. This is for all of my online long hair friends :). I recently trimmed my hair about 1 1/2 inches. I had more of a U shape, and wanted to have a blunt cut. I started trimming every few months into the U, and with this last trim I was able to get rid of the U. I am just above tailbone length right now. I like this length. I'm not sure I want to go much longer. If I go longer, I won't be able to wear it down very much. I had trimmed it right before Memorial Day, so the pictures from that day are what my length is now.


I wanted to post a video of an updo that I do often for my friend April. It is my messy, in a hurry updo that I wear a lot. I hope the video instructions are clear enough. It is definitely not the most flattering video of me. We had just spent the late afternoon at the park hiking the trails, so I wasn't exactly looking all glamorous :). I had to laugh at all the baby hairs growing out at the back of my neck. They used to be about an inch long, and now they are about 10 inches long! Not sure what to do with those crazy little hairs! They seem to look worse in the video than in real life. Oh well.

Oh Jen! You are so pretty. That's a GREAT updo! I loved the video! I'll have to get myself a ficcare one of these days!!!

Thank you beautiful Jen! :) :) :) That is so simple, yet I never would have thought of it. I like the way you can have some loose/free ends at the top. I'll have to play around with it tomorrow night (since Mike and I are putting out lots of pinestraw mulch tonight in our newly spiffed up yard). Now I'm going to watch the video a few times so I can memorize the 'do! :) Thank you so much for posting this for me to see! And Daisy is right; you are so pretty! :)

You are very pretty. That looks like it's easy to do.

I tried this and it worked! And stayed in all day! I'll be doing this again. I agree with the others - you are pretty. Thanks for the video and clear instructions.
