Why can’t I do anything with my hair?

Bad Hair Day


No matter how many tutorials I try or how many times I try them, I just can’t seem to grasp how to do anything but curl and straighten my hair.

The main thing that gets me down when it comes to hairstyles is my inability to plait. I’ve practiced and practiced but every time I just seem to be left with a big swirly mess; which is not a good look.  But these days with the popularity of fish tail plaits, dutch plaits and Edwardian plaits etc… being able to plait feels like it’s becoming further and further out of my reach; no matter how hard I stretch.

At least three times a week I become sucked in by a different YouTube tutorial about creating an ‘easy hairstyle’. And despite the videos always being an interesting watch, after hours of trying I never seem to get anywhere.

Although, I’m proud to say that recently I’ve semi-mastered the sock bun look, even though I still need a bit more practice to create a smart look with it, it’s nice to feel like I’m getting somewhere with my hair. But I can’t help but think that all my problems would be solved if I could plait as it would mean that I would be able to use my skill to create both casual and smart hair.

But despite all of this I still have a lot more years ahead of me which means there’s still time to master my hair…


Do you have trouble creating hairstyles or are you great at it?
