Bun tricks

Take a seat lets turn that crazy two day old hair into a chic bun that makes you look like you actually showered in the past 48 hours. 

hair spray
dry shampoo
hair tie
bobby pins
bow head wrap
Conair bun maker

Step: 1 

BRUSH hair!!!!! Maybe for the first time in a while. I love conair's round brush
it really makes all those stray hairs smooth.  Spray with dry shampoo on roots use a little not a lot and really give it a good rub in. Pull hair into the hole of the mesh bun maker and spread equally all over to cover sponge. Use hair tie and bobby pins to secure. 

Step 2:
Pull hair though for desired fullness with what my hair dresser mom calls a rat tail comb I have no idea the chic name for it. I find it makes it more precise then using fingers but those will work as well!

Step 3:
Hairspray the heck out of it and tie a bow around it and you are done!
A simple fix for some crazy mom hair.

It's all in the details

It's all about the details making less expensive items look high end.

I love finding items under $40 that have fancy details. A unexpected rose gold tip on a hoodie string makes a basic feel way cooler. A studded beanie makes a basic hat have some whimsy and trendy $15  Loft sunnies always get a bunch of compliments! 

I have three examples all under $40 to make you feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank.
