Pinterest Road Test: Hair Edition
Our Pinterest hair boards are filled with stunning pictures of hairstyles that we never wear. Until now
It's my fantasyland where I can pin all the DIY décor of my dreams onto my "home sweet home" board -- then pretend I actually live in a house with hammocks hanging on my non-existent patio.
I also pin countless pretty pictures of shockingly pink lips, dramatically winged eyes, and gorgeous braided hairstyles, giving all of my followers the illusion that I'm a DIY beauty chameleon -- which isn't exactly my reality.
The same way pinning a fabulous chaise lounge doesn't make it magically appear in my living room, pinning a pretty hairstyle doesn't warp my go-to pony into a Gaga-esque hair bow. But I don't defer to my pony because of a lack of skill -- it's a lack of time (or at least that's what I tell myself, anyway).
When my editor challenged me to turn my Pinterest hair pictures into reality, I accepted the assignment eagerly. After all, if I were late to work, I could always blame "research." Right?
Skip ahead to see how I fared at the Pinterest hair challenge.
I'm not a hair guru by any means, but after being a beauty editor for all these years, I was fairly confident some tricks I've picked up along the way would make this road test a piece of cake. Keep reading to see my attempts at copying the biggest Pinterest hair trends right now -- and get my hints that'll help you recreate your favorite looks, too.
