Looks|Something Fishy


Okay, I’m just going to say it. Hair ties/hair bands/pom poms/ (pick your poison) are afraid of me. I know what you’re thinking, “but Bianca, no man, they’re not real”. Well I’m sorry, but the fact that last weekend I had a pack of 40 hair bands and that I’m now sitting here looking like a loose-haired lunatic after having conducted a house-wide search leads me to believe otherwise. Those little buggers are very much alive and well, and they’ve all run away as part of their mission to slowly ruin my life.

I’m not too sure what exactly I’ve done to offend the pom pom population, but there is definitely some sort of boycott going on. Maybe it’s because I sometimes allow for little balls of hair to build up around them and they feel smothered? Or perhaps they just get homesick and run away back to the person I’ve stolen borrowed them from?

I don’t know.

What I do know is that my constant lack of pom pom rarely allows me to try anything new with my hair. A quick glance at some of my other look posts will show you that my hair knows three ‘styles’:

  • Loose and straight
  • Loose and curled
  • Loose and frizzy

Thrilling, right?

Needless to say when my hair was prettily done up in a fish plait for some work I did earlier this week I couldn’t resist getting a few shots. Because, let’s face it, my track record with hair ties pretty much guarantees that we’re never going to see any sort of plait happen on my head again.
