      I have long, thick hair too! For buns, I have my mom put it in a hairnet and bobby-pinned in place OR you can put your hair in a ponytail, braid the ponytail, then twist in into a bun and pin in place. I can do the second one myself. Hope this helps a bit.

    1. What is your go-to way to wear your hair?
    A ponytail, with my awkward growing-out bangs pinned back.
    2. What is your favorite current hair trend?
    Pixie cuts and bright colors, although I’m probably not bold enough to try either.
    3. What is something you’ve been wanting to try on your hair lately?
    I’ve really been looking at pixie cuts, because I need something easy to style for a busy summer.
    4. What’s your favorite way to do your hair if you have extra time?
    I like to curl my waist-length hair in layers, then braid back my bangs. I like it outta my face!
    5. If you could dye your hair for one weekend, what color would you choose?
    Oh, this one is hard. I’d probably leave the roots brown, then starting at the shoulders ombré from dark, reddish pink to bluey purple.
    6. Do you wear your hair up or down more often?
    It’s almost always up, except for special occasions and days I feel like being fancy.
    7. Can you braid and/or french braid your hair? Do you do it often?
    I can do both. I like to experiment with my hair a lot at home, but I rarely wear them out of the house.
    8. What hairstyle do you like, but find hard to master?
    The sock bun. My hair is slightly layered, so I can’t quite get all the ends wrapped around it. I have so much hair, it would probably cover my entire head anyway.
    9. What’s one way you’ll NEVER wear your hair?
    In a ponytail at the nape of the neck, or a crazy high bun, like really close to your hairline. Those just look weird on me.
    10. Where do you get hair inspiration?
    Mostly from the internet, but also from my friends and family, and my hairdresser:)

    I love the sun kissed highlighted look known as “baylage” or adding bright and colorful streaks to hair.

    I really want to add a few highlights to my hair for summer once my natural color grows back in.
    4. What’s your favorite way to do your hair if you have extra time?
    I’d have to say adding a few kinky curls to it or doing a loose braided updo.

    I’d dye it blue and add teal streaks in it.
    6. Do you wear your hair up or down more often?
    Down!
    7. Can you braid and/or french braid your hair? Do you do it often?
    I can do a basic braid, but not a french braid. I’m still trying to master the french and fishtail braid. I braid my hair sometimes, but not very often.

    Updos and french braids!
    9. What’s one way you’ll NEVER wear your hair?

    1. What is your go-to way to wear your hair?
    Straightened, or in a side braid
    2. What is your favorite current hair trend?
    Crown braids and braids that wrap around your head. My hair is long enough but it is layered so I can never get them to stay.

    3. What is something you’ve been wanting to try on your hair lately?
    an Anna braid and bun from Frozen

    4. What’s your favorite way to do your hair if you have extra time?
    curled with a curling wand. I don’t like curling irons but wands give a nice beachy wave.

    5. If you could dye your hair for one weekend, what color would you choose?
    I would bleach it

    7. Can you braid and/or french braid your hair? Do you do it often?

    cute messy buns, especially sock buns they just look messy, not cute

    9. What’s one way you’ll NEVER wear your hair?
    a pixy cut, they are cute but my hair is so wavy it would look awful

    10. Where do you get hair inspiration?
    anywhere I see someone wearing their hair in a way I think is cute.
