How To: A Quick & Easy Up-do

Lipstick: MAC Dangerous. Jumper: Stone Union via BritFash. Earrings: Temporary Secretary. Hair Clip: Stone Bridge*
A few months back I wrote about my go-to hairstyle for when I'm mooching around, you know, lazy days? Quite a few of you were interested to know how I achieve it - so I thought it might be quite nice to do a very quick post to show you just that.

First up you need a large clip - anything smaller and my hair will just come loose and although it probably doesn't 'look' like an overly pristine do, there's not a chance it's moving! My clip is from Stone Bridge and rather cleverly comes with an internal set of teeth that offers a more secure and reliable hold to your usual clasp - something I would certainly recommend for fellow thick-haired ladies. Not to mention the beautiful silver shell exterior. And don't fret, for those fine-haired ladies there is an alternative that covers you too!

So what do I do?

I simply pick up my hair as if to pop it in to a mid-way pony tail - instead, I wrap the hair clockwise around itself so that it ends up in half and tuck the excess hair underneath, so that no stray bits are on show. I then simply push the hair upwards slightly, to get a little bit of volume and place the clip just under the bulk of the bun. fastening it in place.

Voila, it's a easy as that!

Whoa, goregeous hair (I guess you don't hear that for the first time :D ). That would probably not work on my fine hair, but I'll give it a go with the other hair clip you offered! I hope it works. Great post, really informative.
