I admit it. I'm not at all creative when it comes to styling my hair. In fact, I can't remember the last time I blowdried it myself (thank God for Blo's multiple locations, and Blown at Hair on the Avenue). Not that I can't -- I used to do the hour+ blowdry/flatiron all the time. It's just that these days, if I have time to spare, doing my hair isn't how I want to spend it. *shrug*
That said, I'm rather liking the idea of the ponytail variation that lovely Herbal Essences celeb-stylist-guy Charles Baker Strahan demonstrates in the video below. He calls it the "pinned-down ponytail;" it's a barrette-finished chignon/ponytail combo similar to the look hairstylist Odile Gilbert did for Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 (top photo).
And it's what Guido Palau did for Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 (above).
I might try it. Or I might request it at a salon post-blowout. Either way, what do you think? Have you tried it with those Goody metal barrettes?
Goody hair accessories are available at Walmart, Loblaws, Jean Coutu and London Drugs.
