    Though I haven’t tried different wigs, I do know how to switch up my hair for last minute events! As a blogger, I sometimes have to get ready on the go, and completely change my look with little to no time. When I was in LA a few weeks back, I had literally 5 minutes to get my hair into some sort of style for an event. Of course I relied on the only hairstyle I know how to do myself: a bun.

    Step 1: You start as any bun would start, with your hair down.
    Step 2: Sweep your hair into a fun pony.
    Step 3: Split your pony in the middle, and then wind your hair around the base.
    Step 4: Secure it with an elastic….
    …and voila!
    What I love about this style is that you don’t need much in terms of tools, just two elastics: one for your ponytail, and one for your bun.
    It’s nothing close to the more complicated looks Sammy Lacombe creates for me, but it looks chic and polished, no?
