Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here! Sorry for the lack of activity guys, sports can keep a girl busy, but summer-time is drawing to a close, so hopefully I’ll have a bit more time to post on my blog – that is, until the skiing season starts!
Today I wanted to talk a little bit about hair. Why hair? Well, some people seem to think that because I’m into sports, I don’t really care about how I look, especially when it comes to my hair. For some reason they get the impression that all I know how to wear are ponytails and buns (not that there’s anything wrong with that – there are some beautiful ponytail and bun styles out there!).
But they really couldn’t be more wrong. Despite the fact that I am a fan of the “girl next door” look a lot of the time, I also like to get dolled up every now and then.
From braids to buns and everything in between, I love trying new hairstyles. Unfortunately, because I tend to hang out with girls who are less-than-concerned about how they look, it can be hard to get really inspired with new ideas from my friends.
That’s why I’m so grateful for social media like Pinterest and Instagram for giving me my daily dose of inspiration! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried a new look based on a quick search on Pinterest or something that pops up in my Instagram feed.
In particular, one Instagram page I’ve started following recently is Meraki Hair. I was doing a hashtag search for new braid ideas and found one of their popular posts. Ever since then I’ve been a huge fan. Every day they post at least 1 or 2 new pictures from IG celebrities, and they always seem to pick the cutest styles.
Meraki’s blog page has lots of inspirational hair videos, posts, and links to their Instagram page that now has almost a hundred inspiring pics.
What’s even better is that now that I’ve started following the company’s updates on social media, I’ve found out that it looks like Meraki is going to start selling hair accessories soon. If they’re anything like some of the accessories featured in the pictures on their Instagram page, I’m excited to say the least!
Want to know which style I’m trying out next? Check out this cute seashell braid that I found on their page. I don’t know if I’ve got the skills to recreate this style, but I sure am going to try!
I’d love to hear the latest hairstyles you guys are trying out, so post a picture in the comments and let me know!
Talk soon guys!
