Health and Beauty 001: Perky Ponytail
Where my ponytail people at? Not sure about you, but I am such a roll-out-of-bed person. Back in college when my "early" class used to be at 9:10am (haha) I might wake up at 8:30am and spend time in the bathroom doing my hair and makeup for the day. I used to love doing my hair with different styles, but speed and functionality have definitely taken over.
Now in the real world of early morning 5:00am workouts and 7:30am job start times, I have three hairstyles that are my go-to's. That's right. Three.
One is down, one is up, and the other is a ponytail (which is my fancy hairstyle). Below I'll show you how I do my perky ponytails for the days I'm feeling fancy.
I cannot tell you how much I love function and efficiency. Not only do I have to use those characteristics in my job, but I seriously think I was born with an appreciation of organization and ease. So when it comes to my presentation, I'm all about quick and functional ways to get ready and still look professional.
Now whether I'm able to do that every day or not is a different story, but when I'm feeling extra fancy or have a big presentation or meeting, I like to try and dress it up just a touch. And the easiest way for me to do that is with a put-together hairstyle.
Here's a start to finish step-by-step guide of how I do my ponytails.
A LITTLE HACK GOES A LONG WAY
I’m someone who loves a good beauty hack. Who doesn’t love a quick easy trick to add a little oomph, am I right? And this is one of those hacks that definitely makes a difference in how I feel about my ponytails. I feel a bit edgier and friskier, which I need on the days where I know a meeting might get contentious. It’s like my own personal powersuit, but much more comfortable ;)
What are some of your go-to beauty hacks? I’d love to hear all about them! Feel free to comment below :)
