The Hair and The Turtle Neck

Firstly can I just say I am pretty proud I came up with that little play on words for the title of this post on a long and dreary bus journey to school. The best blog post ideas and titles really do come at the weirdest times. I am pretty sure I made an amazed look on my face when I thought of it but a little public embarrassment was worth it for this post.

Today I thought I would share with you some of my go to up do’s/out of the face hair styles that subsequently go awesomely with my newest purchase of this grey turtle neck jumper. I am definitely not one to be adventurous with my hairstyles so it may lack it in that sense but hey, when you have limited time to get ready in the mornings, these can be a time saver. But not to forget with a top like this, I think my hair looks better with it out of the way to draw attention to not only the hair but the neck of the jumper.

Pigtail braids: sporty and chic

This is as adventurous as it is gonna get I’m afraid but I get a strong Tumblr vibe from this look. Braids are a great way to add some intricate yet subtle details to what could be a plain outfit. And better yet this look can even keep the baby hairs away.

The donut: smart and casual

This is definitely one that I would be happy to leave the house in but also one that will magically appear on the top of my head when I am in work mode. Its definitely a favourite amongst the top knot/donut family because it is quick but looks different every time.

 Ponytail: simple yet effortless

This one is so simple that it probably shouldn’t be allowed in this post but for the uncooperating hair days right? With a varation of ponytail looks these days, the messy one is definitely for me. But try a more slicked back look for a more transferable day to night look

 The butterfly: with a twist

This one is almost princess sounding but I promise you it derived from the top knot/messy bun family. Simply create a ponytail but on the last loop, don’t pull it all the way through. Split the half ponytail in well half and pin each side down and in place. My explanations do not come close to the simplicity of seeing it in a youtube video so I hope this one helps:

So there you have it. Four hairstyles, one turtleneck. Pretty simple if I do say so myself as I am no hair goddess.

Tell me some of your favourite top and hair combos below!
