i’m guilty of rocking the hit-the-alarm-button-seventeen-times-AGAIN ponytail all to often. i truly wish i was one of those chicks that could commit to the whole, wash, blowdry, straighten, routine daily but it just doesn’t happen. alas, i pop one of these babies in (yes, that’s right. a disposable hair elastic worthy of the treadmill and that’s IT) and prepare to tackle my commute. it has struck me that as a professional young lady in her (ahem) late 20’s, it is high time to up the polish factor and dress up that pony. i’m opting for a classic tortoise barrette that’s allowing me to roll out of bed and go with little effort, but still leaves a grown-up impression more suitable for work.
so, tell me! any other tried and true solutions for polishing up my favorite snooze-button hairstyle?
