Let My Hair Down


I got an email from a sweet reader last week asking me to take some pics of my hair down, which made me laugh! I've never really thought about it, but yeah, I guess I do wear it up quite a bit!

Contrary to popular belief though, I do occasionally let my hair down, as evidenced by today's impromptu photo sesh in the bathroom getting ready for work.



Side view...per usual, with a poof.

Going forth, I will make a more solid effort to let my locks flow freely from time to time : )

Also, here's a (hair up) pic from this weekend. My parents had a small "we're so glad you're engaged!" party for S and I on Saturday- complete with a cake and everything!


Now then, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Be blessed, lovelies-

  7. I love that half-up/half-down do! So Carrie Underwood of ya! Beautiful!
    I wear my hair up a lot too! But I am trying to be more girly and wearing it down... still, it ends "up" or out of my face at least by day or night's end anyways... so I usually figure what the heck.. might as well start out that way! Ha! Love your blog!! -bjj

  8. Leslie,

    You are beautiful both ways- and definitely look different with each style. I find that I used to wear my hair up all the time(while I was in dental assisting school I guess) but now I have the freedom to let it down so I wear it down mostly. That's the great thing about long hair to have so many options! Loved the poof and you will have to do a demo to get that look.

    What a sweet picture of you and your fiancee. I know your parents must be excited for you both!

  15. haha! I remember one morning at church telling you it was the 1st time I'd seen you with your hair down!! Will you puuuuuuuuhlease teach me how to poof my hair like that?????? I have tried and tried and it never looks like that!

    What a sweet party your family had! I'm so glad S is marrying someone with a wonderful family who loves him and welcomes him. Speaking from experience, it's hard when it's not like that! ;)

    Hope you're having a good week!!

  24. You look so pretty-hair up OR down! Whatevs! I wish I could pull off my hair being up like you can. I can sometimes do it, but sometimes I feel like it just doesnt look right or like my ears stick out or something equally nonsensical and paranoid. haha.. And so cute they had a little celebration for you guys! The cake is adorable (as is the couple holding it)! :)
