I can make a bun with a hair extension.



I have ordered several ribbons from AliExpress.com to decorate the bun.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Thanks, Chrissy.

When I was a 6-th grade student in elementary school, a girl always wore a sky-color ribbon. She was so pretty, as I remember. In 40 years thereafter, I had a chance to meet her. I could remember her, but she was no longer pretty, as nobody can escape aging. I was far slimmer than her.

I purchased and tried a similar ribbon that the girl used to wear about 40+ years ago.

The main hairstyle that I do is done with hairpins, I also have some sensory issues so I try to keep hair out of my face at all times.

I like butterfly clips and bows for sure.

I think I will wear some bright colored barrettes today.
Plus might make it a fuchsia top and dark blue jeans day.
First, I need to actually get out of bed. 

Yawn!    :)

I never tried that with my hair.  Braids can look gorgeous and of course very fem.
Maybe if I let it grow out more this would be easier.

I worry that my hair is too fragile to braid it. Also, is there an age where braiding kinda seems like weirdo style choice to other women?

@sarahc
Dear Sarah:
I am not certain about the "fragile hair" issues, but the braiding that I like is like a French Braid or a Braided ponytail...  not the super tight braiding like with Cornrows and similar tight braiding.

Hmmm...  if the braids are done nicely I don't see it as being a wierdo style choice at any age to other women.

I wear hats to manage my hair, but I like hair accessories in other women; I'm just too lazy to fool with it myself.

My hair is getting to a length where it is getting in my face more and more. I didn't realize that when your hair gets long and is a little out of control, you have to be careful when you eat something because there could be a loose hair that goes into your mouth with the food when you eat. I think I need to tie my hair up more often.

So far I still loving soft headbands around the house more than anything else. My hair has gotten the point where I can put it in a bun and it looks ok. Ponytails are very uncomfortable and I'm not good at them yet. I have tried clips, but it just doesn't look good.

Practically speaking, I would prefer short hair, but I look much better with long, somewhat straightened hair.

I think it is fun seeing what can be done with your own hair, such as different parting, trying out a little ponytail and a couple of short pigtails, using clips and decorations, and brushing it this way or that way.

I do like a symmetrical look rather one side looking longer.  Some ladies can pull off that asymmetrical look rather well though.

We women are lucky in that we can have so many looks with our hair.  Add to that wigs and that can bring out many more looks!

I’ve moved on from headbands to coil scrunchies. I am a big fan of the coil scrunchies - much better than the supposedly ouchless scrunchies that aren’t actually ouchless. Only bad thing about the coil scrunchies is that they don’t do quite as good of a job with staying in your hair.

I wished this kind of hairstyle I had 2 years ago.




But the hairdresser mangled it. Now I attach a ponytail hair extension every day. A long ribbon looks nice with it.



I have to wait for 6 months to grow my hair again to try the short hairstyle.

So do any of you find yourself in the situation that you need to hold down your hair to get it out of the way?

I've not been in a situation like that. I've always found it much easier to get it out of the way by wearing it up. Although I guess I do use a clip or barrette to do so.

Today is a plastic clip wearing day.  Very inexpensive, bright, pink, and glossy.

Soft scrunchies and plastic clips mostly.

I think I will try  the bun with hair extension thing. 
The one on Barbie might work on me.

I bought a nice, brown glossy plastic hair clip.

Functional, yet nice to have in place at times.

For the last couple of hours, in between eating and posting, I have been fussing with hair... getting a pretty bow in just the right place, parting and combing in just the right style, and using barrettes.  I tried a hair band too.  :)

The variety of looks achieved is interesting.  Some just did not turn out well.  Others were nice.
