Styling a bob

I did it!  I got my hair chopped!  Once Brandy cut the length, I couldn’t stop smiling.  Because yes it’s kind of scary but it’s just hair so who cares?  I’m over taking life too seriously all the time and I now feel 50 pounds lighter.  I freaking love it.


However, in my un-Colleen-like move to cut my hair without thinking seriously about the aftermath, I realized that I don’t really know how to style it.  Oops.  I’m thinking that I will blow dry at night and then take a straightening iron or curling iron to it in the morning.  Luckily, my girl Brandy has met me before and she knows that I am averse to spending more than 5 minutes on my hair so she said that the cut should work well for my lazy curly days.

Some of my favorite styling options are:

One: Straightened and half-up.  Certainly I am capable of using a straightening iron and making a little top knot.  This girl is adorable.

Two: Add a braid for days when my bangs are being ridiculous.

Three: A tutorial on how to make perfectly imperfect waves from the always fantastic Beauty Department.

Any styling tips friends?
