What My Hairstyle Says


My hair is always doing something different... wavy, braided, curly, twisted, or all slicked back & out of the way. The style always seems to match my mood. In honor of my brand new blonde-to-brunette hair change, I've compiled a fun little list of what my hair is "saying" on a given day.

My hairstyle says:
  1. All down & Hollywood curly: This took a long time so I must be going somewhere where I want to look goooooooood.
  2. Loose, messy braid: Let's keep it low-maintenance & playful, this hairstyle is for the girls.
  3. French braid: Don't pay attention to me today.
  4. Tight ballerina bun: I mean business.
  5. Messy bun: My hair is really dirty, I hope no one notices...
  6. Hat: My hair is really really dirty. I knew I should have washed it.
  7. Ponytail: Feelin' sporty.
  8. Top knot: I am a blogger—take my photo. (Hence, the photo above... obviously).
  9. Pinned bump on top: I know my husband hates this, but it's so convenient.
  10. Wet so it can air-dry: I just don't care today.
  11. Side ponytail: Feelin' sporty & chic.
  12. Updo: Must. Be. Fancy. Updo. Means. Fancy.
  13. All down & straight: Finally... just me & natural.
What does your hair say about you?

Ombré to Brunette

Bracelet: c/o Outfit Additions (use code SAUCE for 15% off)

And... my 2-year long no-coloring-my-hair streak is over—I'm officially a brunette!

You may remember a year ago when Daniel wrote his one (and only) post on Aunie Sauce, and showed you a photo of me with brunette hair. Let's just say that since he stumbled upon that photo, he's been asking me with big puppy-dog eyes to go darker, and finally—I did it—though I let him pick the color... if I'm gonna do it, you bet I'm gonna do it right!

Of the 26 years I've been around, only about 1 of them has been enjoyed as a brunette (I've gone dark 3-times before... 3 short times), so here we go...here's to new hair!

PS> My natural color? The top left photo's roots! That's 2-years of grow-out!

Diagonal Dutch Braid

Ring: c/o rosieMADE (use coupon SAUCYrosie for $15 off a $50 order)

These days, braids are my favorite hairstyle. They take me just a minute or two to do, and then I'm usually able to sleep in them overnight and get to rock some killer crimped hair the next day.

I did this style the other day while sitting at my desk at work. It's a Dutch braid that begins on the right side of my head and crosses diagonally in the back so it hangs down like a side left braid in the front.

It's easy. It's effortless. It's chic. To see the style post that went with this braid, click here
