As you know, my name is Annelise. It is pronounced Ah-nah-lease-ah. Kind of like Monalisa. But not. It's Norwegian, thus the funky pronunciation. If you've been saying it Anna-lease, you're wrong. Or Ahna-lease. Still wrong. Or even Ann-elise. Nope.
AH-NAH-LEASE-AH. This is the only name I go by. No Anna, no Lisa, no Mona. Well... there are a few exceptions. My family calls me Icy, some of my friends from Redlands and former Boise State cheerleaders call me Lise, and my bestie Ashton and a few other awesome people refer to me as Aunie. But other than that... just Annelise.
I have taken a particular liking to one of the previously mentioned nicknames. Aunie. It's cute. It has a unique ring to it. Done.
So I decided that I needed to create a hairstyle, in honor of this blog, just for me. It has to be a go-to style. Something that can be done with second-day or clean hair.
Thus-- the Aunie Hawk was born.
I was in a particular rush to pick my mom up for the Boise State vs. Airforce game this weekend, and I needed to throw my hair into something-- and fast. My hair had lots of volume and hadn't been washed from the day before (remember the Wrap Snap & Go look?). So I grabbed a couple bobby pins, some hair comb clips and a single Wrap Snap & Go curler. A few short minutes later, I ended up with this:
The Aunie Hawk. It can be done to look very elegant and fancy, or it can be a messy updo for a night out on the town.
Here's the how-to for the Aunie Hawk:
- Separate your hair into two parts. One will be the upper half, like if you were going to put your hair half-up. The other will be the lower half.
