Challenge #2 Wrap Up & Thoughts

I’m planning on getting a new hairstyle soon, it’s been so long since I’ve actually had a cut or a style & I’m ready. It was really good to experiment with my hair as it is. I wish I had more time to devote to trying new things with my hair, but as a Mom of two boys, I realised I really don’t have that kind of time.

I’m glad I took this challenge & I will definitely be making an effort to avoid doing the “hair up in a clip” thing everyday. That being said, I’m ready for my hair to be up some more again & out of the way!

Here are some of my favourite styles from the last 14 days:

Challenge #2 Hairstyles #13 & #14

My last two styles were pretty similar, but I found that I really liked them, thought they were attractive & were super comfortable. I even got some compliments!

Challenge #2 Hairstyles #11 & #12

I so wish I had someone around to do amazing things to my hair while it is this long. I attempted a french braid – it was ok, but could have been better. Super comfy though.

For style #12, it’s simple & down with a twist.

Challenge #2 Hairstyle #5

We have friends coming over tonight & so I made an effort! Actually, I’m trying to make more of an effort most days, but people will actually see me today so I really went for it.

I love headbands! I have so many & today I wore one of my favourites. Maybe sometime I’ll do a headband challenge where I have to wear all of my headbands.

My hair is down & I would love to put it up, but I like how it looks down.

Challenge #2 Hairstyle #4

I had a bit more time today, but I wasn’t actually going anywhere. I decided to make an effort though.

It’s mostly down with a couple of twists (as an alternative to braids) on each side with my fringe twisted to the side. The braids are pulled together in the back.

Challenge #2 Hairstyle #1

Started my 14 days of hair styles today. I decided to go for out of the shower, air-dried, totally down hair today. I forgot to mention that the toughest part about this challenge will be keeping my hair in the same style all day. I’m so ready to put it up and out of the way.

This is me doing nothing to my hair.

My hair has gotten long!

Challenge #2 Creative Hair for 14 Days

I haven’t had a haircut since well before my second son was born more than 18 months ago. I mostly just wear it up to keep it out of the way. It’s gotten really long & I am starting to get the new hair style itch. However, before that, I am challenging myself to wear my hair differently every day for 14 days. Hopefully it will help get me out of this rut & ready for a new style. I will post photos of each style.
