There's nothing worst than experiencing a bad hair day, (which I feel like is every day with my tame of curls), or trying to style your hair in a cute way only to have it become one major flop. I have naturally curly hair, and it's a pain in the butt to spend a good 40-45 minutes to either straighten or curl it with a curling wand only to have it become a big frizz-ball. Nowadays, it's easier to just put it in a messy bun and call it a day. But fear not, for I have compiled some of my favorite go-to cute, yet messy hairstyles I love to sport most of the time (more like all of the time, saves me the hassle).

1. Half-Up Pony

Okay, I'm not sure if this one technically counts as messy but I love being able to pull half my hair back and put it in a pony when on the go. And it's super cute and works for just about any occasion.

2. Classic Messy Bun

The messy bun, my all time favorite. I love the classic messy bun for many reasons. During my four years of high school, I would wake up ten minutes before having to leave because I am not an early riser so I became a pro at getting dressed in five to seven minutes and it was a lot quicker to throw my hair up instead of waking up earlier than I wanted to style my hair when I know it would be a mess by the end of the day.

3. Braids

I use to be crap at braiding my own hair but the past year I've found myself being able to perfect braids (only French braiding though, any other kind is a hot mess), and I love them so much. For my short hair girls, yes you can still rock any kind of braid(s) you desire. Quick tip if you do want to do the pigtail braids is when both are complete just combine the ends into a pony, works great and looks just as cute.

4. Messy Pony

Being able to quickly pull your back with a few loose strands serves as the most classic, yet laid back look. It also is the perfect solution for those days when you are running late and don't have time to mess with other easy hairstyles.

5. Half Up Half Down Bun

This style has become quite popular in the last year and I love it. It's one of my go-to's on those days where I want to wear my hair down but yet I still want feel like rocking a messy bun.

6. Bobby Pin Fix

Bobby Pins have saved me on numerous occasions when I can't find a single pony holder. You can do just about any quick hair style wit bobby pins, and it might be easier to use if you have shorter hair. All you have to do pull whatever amount of hair back you want out your face, pin it up and you're all set.

7. Head Band Up-Do

I came across this hairstyle one day while scrolling through Pinterest and I absolutely love it. All the material you need is a headband that is thick enough to hold your hair in the back and you're done. Simple and cute.

These styles can be a lifesaver on those bad hair days or when you are feeling lazy. And if you want to style them in a different way Pinterest will provide just about any style you are feeling.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

9 Things You Shouldn't Say If Your Girl Cuts Her Hair

If you're like me, you love changing your hair on a monthly basis. I love wearing wigs and box braids. I love cutting and dying my hair as well.

It's a way of expressing one's self and provides creativity in a fun way. When changing your hair often is a way of expressing yourself, it can be pretty difficult when others judge you for it, especially if it's your significant other.

Here are some things that have been said to me that you shouldn't say to your girlfriend or loved one if she decides to cut her hair.

1. "I liked it better when it was longer."

Giphy

No. Just, no. There is no way to magically grow it back in one second so don't try to make her regret it.

2. "You kind of look like a guy."

Giphy

REALLY? If your girlfriend identifies as a girl, chances are she wouldn't like being called a boy. Don't do this, please.

3. "Why don't you wear a wig or extensions?"

Asia Richardson

I love wearing wigs but if you tell me to cover up a haircut that I paid for because you don't like it, then I probably will have to go back to being single.

4. "How long do you think it'll take to grow back?"

Giphy

Probably longer than you're relationship will last if you keep asking dumb questions.

5. "Don't cut it again."

Giphy

Having a girlfriend doesn't mean having a piece of property so don't even attempt to tell her what to do. It's the same with loved ones as well.

6. "You must be insecure with yourself."

Asia Richardson

This hurts coming from anyone. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be in a bad place in your life to want to randomly cut your hair down short.

7. "You look gay."

Giphy

It's 2018 people. Girls can have short hair, guys can have long hair, and "gay" IS NOT an insult.

8. "I don't like short hair on a girl."

Giphy

Everyone is allowed to have a preference but if you've already made her your girlfriend and you care more about her hair than her, then you shouldn't be dating her.

9. "If you don't stay consistent, people will think you don't know yourself."

Asia Richardson

All in all, it IS just hair. It will grow back. Why can't I change my hair often and also know exactly who I am?
