Spring Up-dos and Full Lips

I'm obsessing over cute up-dos for spring. And hair color. I'm dissatisfied with my color and seriously thinking of going back to blonde (I was blonde for 15 years! Actualy blonde as a young child, then it turned icky).  My new lighter ginger-red color is just not looking vibrant **sigh**.  Reds are definetely harder to maintain than blonde and I had wanted something easier...most of all, I just want it to grow!!  My new issue of Elle just arrived and I was really surprised to see all of the interesting light red colors this season...

These up-dos are adorable

French Twist

Chignon...I wore my long hair this way all the time. So easy to do and instantly ready for a meeting!

I love this model's lips, she looks healthy and fresh.

Having *nice* blonde hair takes work too! My hair is blonde not naturally a fabulous shade of blonde so it needs a little boost from time to time. I spend all winter searching for the perfect shade waiting for summer - the perfect shade for me is a mix of sun-kissed and chlorine lol

The Chignon. I need instruction. Love the look. My Mom taught me the french twist. I haven't seen it in years. When I go back to work I am going to rock it, in style or not.

So, chignon, please share the details.

Blonde... we are all blonde int he OC. Red is different and takes guts. I say you stick with what works and find a color stay product.

I love a good updo! And honestly, I love my blonde hair! Mine was red once too, but blonde is much easier to maintain, and I just feel like if you can be blonde, you should. However, who knows, I might change it up too sometime!
