Alien Space Buns

November 2015

Hello! It's now been over a month since I've used any sort of heat on my hair-yay! Read my original post on this subject HERE. While I definitely have my wild hair days, I'm loving leaving my hair natural. I feel like by quitting using heat on my hair, my hair is longer and it seems as if the naturally curly texture is enhanced. 

All that being said, since I no longer use heat on my hair, I have to be more creative with how to deal with my bad hair days. Yeah, I can just throw it in a braid but doing that too often feels boring and uninspired. When I was experiencing a bad hair day last week, I decided to switch things up and try something new. I threw my hair up into two little buns on top of my head which feel like alien space buns to me. And I love it. This style will definitely be a new go-to when I can't figure out what in the world to do with my hair.

For my outfit, I slipped on a basic textured dress. I made a statement by pairing the dress with a bold leopard print faux fur jacket and lace-up thigh high boots. I kept my accessories to a minimum, only donning a futuristic pair of sunglasses to play up the outer space vibe of my hair-do. Red lipstick pulled the whole look together.
