Since I have a few friends going to weddings this weekend, I figured I'd post about my favorite new formal haristyle. It's actually not that hard. This one I tried this morning. See!
OK, maybe not the best picture (we'll work on Paul's photography skills and my posing), but you get the idea . . . hopefully.
It's called the side chignon. You'll see the "real" directions below, but honestly, I didn't bother with the curling iron and the fluffing. I relied on two-day dirty hair and dry shampoo (oh, and many many bobby pins). I just think that if you look at the photo below, you can fake it until you make it.
Without final a due . . .
Now let's break it down:
using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections
once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down
build height and volume at the crown by teasing hair gently with a fine-tooth comb
gather hair into a low ponytail; twist it along the nape of your neck, pinning as you go
once you reach your ear, shape the remaining hair into curls, and pin them back over
This room is a bit bare for my taste, but I'll tell you what I do like: the color palette (soft pinks, grays, whites), the low bed, the mover's cart as an end table, and that tutu lampshade you see on the left side of the bed. A tutu lampshade, for pete's sake! I think it's beautiful to mix delicate, feminine details with industrial pieces.

For those of us who do not have TVs (or in my case, cable). I'd like to create a space like this. So comfortable and intimate. You can chillax and read here or you can have a wine party in there with friends. The possibilities are endless.

Even with white walls, this is still a very colorful kitchen. If
you're like me and you collect jars, bottles, and pretty dishes,
why hide them behind cabinets when you can use shelves for
storage? That gorgeous dark wood table functioning as a
counter in the center of the room gives this a very homey feel.
I think I would have hung white lace curtains (but I'm just
loving everything lace right now). Credit here
