Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/26

My hair... sigh. It's been really short (think Demi Moore in Ghost) and long (really long) and now it's getting long again. I don't know what to do with it, so I've been into the messy bun-thing, trying to decide if I want to chop it or what. But! The messy bun-thing is very in right now, and a great look for all the holiday parties. Enter, the whispies and sort of spikeys you can create with the ends sticking out of the bun. But you need something that's going to make your hair piecey without turning it all gluey.

When I had really really short hair, I would spike it with Bumble and Bumble's Sumo Wax. It was great for creating that edgy look. They've toned down the wax with Sumotech, and it's fantastic for making the piecey whisps that come out of a messy bun.

Have fun with this product!! You only need a little, but it's better for creating updos than hairspray because it doesn't weigh down your hair. It's also great (used sparingly) for creating that wavy, messy, beach sort of hair when you have it down. It looks FANTASTIC if you blowdry your hair, and then twist some of the Sumotech into it to create sort of messy-looking dreadlocks here and there around your head for AMAZING texture.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! Mine was really mellow, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of life and not worrying about all the things that have gotten me down lately.

Happy hair. p.s. You can get Sumotech at
