The Taming of the Hair + Giveaway!

Last night Joe and I had our ballroom dancing lesson and I was sick at the thought of having my hair down, stuck to my neck when it was approximately 100 million degrees outside. In the summer I live in a ponytail or braid because the thought of my frizzy hair touching my neck makes me want to take a cold shower. But last night I decided to try something different: the BUN!



No... not like that! Buns can be chic! And I especially like it when it's a little off to the side - very retro!


I bought these "Spin Pins" from Goody and let's just say I didn't have high hopes! My hair is long and super layered and usually has a mind of it's own! And I decided to road test these babies last night.

So, here we are, getting ready to walk into class...


And here we are, after class and dinner outside on a windy patio of Old Chicago Pizza... (no touch ups!)...


Amazing, no?

Want to try one for yourself? Be sure you're a follower and leave a comment below this post and I'll draw a name to win a set!!

Happy Tuesday!

FYI: Goody/Spin Pin didn't pay me to say nice things about them! Ha!

that IS amazing. I am a fan of putting my hair in a bun. I'd love to try the pins.

STOP! I totally rock the bun all.of.the.time. AND AND I have those earrings, but in coral! Get out! Oh, and don't worry about being deep...tomorrow my post is about summer must haves in the form of clothes and accessories ;-)

I have gone so far to have these in my shopping cart at Wal-Mart but every time I put them back thinkin, "there's no way those things will hold in my hair" looks like you had great luck!

I've been wanting to try that! I have super long hair and lots of it so I didn't have high hopes. Maybe it'll work for mine, too.

You look so stinkin' cute!!!

My hair is short though so I am not sure if i would benefit from the pins... you never know though right?!
