My hair is now finally long enough to start to play around with different styles. This one is inspired by a piece about Cameron Diaz's hair in November's In Style at the Knight and Day premier in Barcelona. Cameron's hair was styled into a side bun, so I attempted to recreate the look myself.

I started with my hair naturally dried, with no straightening, as it is naturally big (too big if you ask me). I then pulled it into a loose side ponytail at one side of the nape of my neck.
I lightly back-combed the ponytail, but not too much, and then used hair pins to tuck over some of the ends of the ponytail to create the bun look. I kept it messy, as I was looking for an effortless look. In the In Style article, Cameron's hairstylist says that they wanted her hair to look like a flower, so they twisted the end of the ponytail round back on itself, and pinned that up. My hair wasn't long enough to do this, so I improvised.
It only took me a couple of minutes to do and I was quite pleased with the result! Nothing like Cameron's and far more messy, but my own twist on the look. I got a couple of compliments, so I was happy! It's really hard to photograph the back of your head, so sorry about the pics!
