video how-to: messy side pony

Need a little hump day hair inspiration? This is fast becoming my go-to style when my hair is too dirty to pass as socially acceptable and I’m short on time. It’s like my 8 year-old side pony, all grown up! {And sans neon scrunchie.}

Like the song? It’s Starry Eyed by Ellie Goulding from the album Lights.

a real-life style & beauty blog.

Hi, I'm Keira! I love bookstores, beauty counters, and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and (some of) my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear.

    This is a very good how-to video. I’ve mastered the messy pony tail, and on occasion I like to spice up the pony tail look with a fish tail braid. I just braid my bangs back and then pair that with a side pony tail, it’s one of my favorite looks!

    Aw, come on–you can still rock the neon scrunchie! :)

    I’ll have to try this look as soon as my hair grows out enough for a ponytail. Thanks!

    Thanks for posting something so simple top follow. I’ve always gotten confused about the whole “hair around the elastic” part.
    P.S. Super fun music!
