Will My Pony Win? Will YOU Win?

One of my new work duties is hosting Twitter chats every couple of weeks. Mom, Twitter is where you talk back and forth to other people in 140 characters or less. Next week’s lesson will be on hashtags.

Yesterday’s #BlogHerTalks chat was about hair. We talked about natural hair, colored hair, over-treated hair, shrimp gumbo, shrimp scampi, and cocktail shrimp. Wait…

Although I’m a woman, and I have hair, I didn’t have much to offer style-wise to the conversation, because my hair mostly looks like this:

Don’t be jealous.

The fact is, I have very fine, thin hair, so I don’t like to over-treat it. Plus, I work from home so I don’t have a need to impress people with my locks. Thank goodness.

But, occasionally I like to put some effort into it. With summer coming, I know my hair will be in a pony-tail more than ever. Can you say hot-flashes? So I searched for a way to make my plain-Jane-pony a little less boring and I found this.

I followed the advice and styled my hair in about three minutes (see aforementioned fine, thin description…I can practically fit all of my tresses in a curling iron at one time).

What do you think? I mean, besides the fact that I need a dye job.

    I just try to make it out of the house not looking like Jean Michel Basquiat. But yes, I do like the curly pony.

  • Jenny

    Ooh, curly pony! I love it!

    • Momo Fali

      Thanks, Jenny!

  • tara

    Your ponytail is so cute!

    I’m in the same boat as you-I wear my hair in a ponytail/messy bun almost always and my hair is super fine and thin. It gets frizzy flyaways really easily and I still have not been able to find a product that fixes that WITHOUT making my hair look greasy. *sigh*

    I like yours more than the end result in the video.

    seems a shame to spend time on pretty curls and then put it back into a pony tail. But, that’s just me. My hair is short specifically so I don’t have to spend much time on it. 🙂

    I love the curly pony! But I wouldn’t bother with it unless I was going somewhere where I wanted to look “nice”, but not dressed up. If I was going to my kids school or something like that.

  • Amie

    You’ve seen my pigtails…or, one of them…so I’d say you’ve got me beat.

    Same here, Diane! Same here. I always have my hair in a ponytail too.

    […] Remember me? I’m the woman in a perpetual state of pony-tail. Pony-tail is not a state? Says […]
