Hair for the Holidays and Beyond

Happy Holidays!!
I'm traveling and enjoying time with my family. I hope everyone else is enjoying this time of year as much as possible. I know a lot of families are having a rough time closing out 2012.  I'm from CT. I have a lot of family here and thankfully we have been spared by the recent tragedy here. However please continue to send prayers out for the families of the children we lost. Several of my high school classmates lost young family members :-(

As we get closer to 2013 I am trying to wrap my head around what the next year may look like. I'm running out of days, however, and have not gotten my story straight yet.

One miniscule and insignificant change I want to make this year is to let my hair grow out for once. It's about as long as its ever been and I want to see how much further I can go over the next 12 months. Last time I said this I made it about 4 more months and then decided to cut it lol.

So as a part of this small decision I've been twisting my hair after I wash it and then fashioning the twist-out into various updos. I hope to keep my ends in good shape and retain as much growth as possible throughout the cold months.

Here are a few picts of one of the twist outs and the updo I wore for a friend's party and one I wore for our office Christmas party.

I'm wearing my hair pressed right now and will post about that in the next few days after I get a week's worth of pictures. I roller set it and then passed once over with the flat iron as I took the curlers out. WIN! lol.  I also made my own beeswax/castor/essential oil mix and it works like a dream. Stay tuned.


  1. NICE!! I love them all, but the french braid bang look is my fave!

  2. My resolution was to not cut my hair as well. I get to a few months and just chop it off. Love your hairstyles.
