A Dirty Twisted Secret

Sometimes I just don't feel like washing my hair. Ok most of the time I just don't feel like washing my hair. Plus, back in the day washing your hair ever few weeks was considered "often." So I'm ok with washing my hair every so often ;)

In any event, if you're anything like me you're bored with the look of your hair and want to make it look polished like you cared but only take about five minutes to do it.  So the secret is: the dirtier the better.  Twists stay twisted and buns stay wrapped when they've got more (dirt) to hang on to. But you already knew that.
I did this little updo in a few simple steps.
  1. Twist two small sections of hair on either side of your face and secure each with a bobby pin.
  2. Gather all of the remaining hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie.
  3. Twist your ponytail around the base to form a coil/bun and secure with bobby pins!
  4. For extra hold secure with a veil of hairspray, the latest one I'm in love with is Not Your Mother's
