Pinterest in Reality Week 1 : Hair

Welcome to my first post in the Pinterest in Reality Series! This series is all about seeing if what we see on Pinterest is actually possible to recreate in 'real life'. I know I'm not the only one who spends hours on end flicking through Pinterest, thinking I'll give different things a go but u never do. So over the next 8 weeks I've set myself 8 categories and each week I choose a pin and try and recreate it. You can read my full blog series intro here.

No doubt these posts are going to be a little image heavy, so bear with me. Let's give it a go. 

You can find a million and one hair styles in Pinterest, but I opted for an updo as styled by Lauren Conrad. This step by step guide looks pretty simple, whilst the finished look looks polished and red carpet ready. 

Here's how I got on. 

You can see my finished result is somewhat similar, but no where near as polished and sleek. Basically, it's nothing like it, BUT I do like what I created. I think my hair is too fine, short and the layers cause the style a problem, but this messy, bed head look actually really suited me, and I love it! 

I think this style would be pretty spot on for girls with long,thick,  even layered hair, but I don't mind my finished result. How did you get on?
