Hi everyone!
Just wanted to drop in and say that I'm so excited to have Annelise here today. She is a gorgeous person in and out and quite the talent! If you haven't visited her blog yet, definitely be sure to do so-- it's filled with fabulous tips & fun hairstyle ideas!
This is a great style for a night out for New Year's Eve! :) Thanks for being here, Annelise! xo


Hello lovely readers of Finding Beauty in the Ordinary! I am seriously blessed to have the opportunity to guest post for you today. Heather, thanks for letting me share my awkward randomness with your readers!

OK-- so a tiny introduction-- I'm Annelise (aka Aunie) and I blog about hair. Whoopee, right? I'm on a 365-day journey which involves no hairspray, teasing, dyeing or frying of my hair. Oh yeah... and absolutely NO hair products. I'm trying to achieve long, beautiful hair and this is my year-long attempt to get it!

Today I'd like to show you one of my newest, and favorite styles. I introduced this one to my readers a little while ago and they loved it. I called it my Holiday Updo. It's so easy, chic, and simple to do!
A couple weeks ago, I received an email from a dear little lady named Emily. She sent me a YouTube video with the most adorable style from HeyKayli.

Needless to say, I loved, loved loved it. And when readers send me email requests for hairstyles, you just have to know that I'm going to try them.

All you do is place a simple elastic headband on your head, twist a couple pieces of your hair around it, and you're good to go! I modified the version from HeyKayli a little bit. She pulled the headband down over her forehead, and I'm not such a huge fan of that style, so I left the band on the top of my head. Also, I decided to sweep mine to the side in a low ponytail to make it more of an updo look. I also think this would look fab with a messy side bun. OOH... now I want to try it. I plan on wearing a one-shoulder dress for New Year's Eve, and this would be such a fun style to rock along with it.

Do you think you'll be trying this messy-but-chic style these holidays? I hope you enjoy this hairstyle, and feel free to check out all of my hairstyles over at my little blog. In case you're not super into hair, but you want to see my other fun happenings, please also venture on over to Simply Aunie. My blog all about my little self in this big old world.
