There’s no getting around it, so I might as well post it for all the world to see. I sweat. No, I don’t glisten or perspire—it’s a full-on, icky gross sweat. And living in the excessively humid East Coast doesn’t help any.


So, needing to both look cute for work and not die beneath my hair, I’ve adopted a new summer hairstyle: the messy bun. There are several benefits to this style. It looks cute, it can’t get messed up (after all, it’s supposed to look messy!), and above all, it keeps me cool. Well, cooler.


You can find a tutorial for the messiest of buns here, along with dozens of other great tutorials. Kate is my hero.
