Do you feel it in the air? Spring! No, don’t feel it? Yeah, neither do I, however as we all look around we can feel it coming. Fashion magazines are presenting us with new spring lines and even the spring/summer fashion was on display this weekend at the mall. We all want the warm weather to come. And the retailers do too (note all the sad heavy coats and sweaters on sale, pressed far back in the store with bright read tags stating they are an a additional 75% off). As New Englanders we get pumped for the heat. We look forward to strappy sandals, breezy sundresses and a relaxed life style. I know… I got you all wanting a Strawberry Margarita, didn’t I? But as we all know what comes with the heat is the frizz and pain in the you know what effort that it takes for us to look and feel great. So why am I stressing you all out in January, you ask? What? I didn’t mention swimsuits! Whoops. No, Im getting you all prepped with a basic and hot trend for this upcoming season. The Knot! No, really this will save your life. And no, Im not taking about those crazy tight, suffocating ballet buns everyone was wearing. Think lighter, messier and softer. And I do not care what age you are, we all need some softness in our lives. Leave your fierce, tight bun for nights when you are hitting the dance floor. All you need to do is get two hair elastics and if you are feeling like you need the control, get a brush. Start with your basic ponytail, go as high or as low as you want. Next twist the tail part and twirl it into a knot, you want it to resemble a Challah bread bun (if you don’t know what that is, please buy one and enjoy it with a cup of coffee, it will make your life). Take the next elastic and tie it onto the base of the knot, trying to keep the knot intact. Then pull the bun with two hands, going away from each other but not pulling it so much that the bun comes totally undone. Follow up with bobby pins to secure and loose hairs that you don’t think look right. Spray! Or don’t! Remember three words: BREEZY, SOFT, MESSY. Now go give it a try and remember the spring will come, it always does!
