okay i know my hair doesn't look the best here (stupid bit of my fringe in my face gah!). it looked better in other pictures but they had my family in them and i wasn't sure if they'd want to be put on the internet.
my only concerns with cutting my hair are, a) i was 14 in 2009, and since i'm 17 now, i'm scared that short hair might make me look 14 again, and, b) i'm worried it might not suit me or look as nice. so before i take the plunge with my scissors, i set out on a mission to try and find some up-do's that work with long hair and suit my face.
awkward hand, why?! the colours were a bit off, hence the black and white, by the way.
my first attempt was the classic mary-kate and ashley plait up-do. i'm not a master at using hair-grips and they always fall out or just sit in my hair and don't really grip anything, so i'm not sure about this look. i used this tutorial to figure out how to do it. it's actually a lot easier than i thought it'd be.
it looks kinds of a mess at the back (my centre-parting skills are shocking) and i think i need to get my layers put back in if i really want to make it work. hm, we'll see what the other hairstyles look like. x
