The hair chronicles and a simple new 'do

Before: hair on my wedding day - it went to about my bra line when it was straight  (that's my beautiful mom whose hair I'm fixing)

After: two months post-wedding

A few months later, when I first started the blog

Now (or at least recently)

A little over a year ago, I chopped about 11 inches of hair off.  I loved sporting a shorter 'do for awhile, and then I decided to start growing it out again.  I was so used to having just a few go-to ways to style my short hair, and, now that it's longer, I've seem to have gotten myself into a hair rut.  Styling my hair is usually an afterthought, and my typical look is bangs pinned back out of my face with either my natural curls or an at-home blowout.  Just see here, here, and here for evidence.

Recently, though, I decided to try something new, as you might have noticed in this post.  Here is the simple look I created:

I'm no expert, but I did like the way it turned out, and it was pretty easy to do.  I merely divided my hair into two sections and braided each section, wrapped each braid around itself, and pinned into place.  I used the flower bobby pins to add a little bit of interest.  It's not the most groundbreaking look, but it's a start, right?

Do you know of any good hair styles or tutorials for mid-length hair?  Please comment below or share a link!

p.s. In addition to cut, I clearly enjoy experimenting with hair color.  What are your thoughts on dying your hair?

That is adorable! I love that look on you! I'm in the same boat as you...trying to figure out what to do with this mid-length hair. I'm looking for ideas boring ponytails and flat hair days are bumming me out!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You are adorable! :D

I'm not sure about hairstyles.. I always have the best intentions when I get my hair cut (which is like once a year!) but I never end up really doing anything with it. It's mostly tied back in a messy bun, drives my husband crazy haha!

I've also never ever dyed my hair. Though, when I was a teenager I would put lemon juice or beer in my hair, sit out in the sun and get some natural highlights.
