So, inspired my one of my favorite YouTube tutorialists, Miss Tammy (more about her in a moment), I tried a "messy side bun."
Actually, as you can see, it turned out to be more of a side-pony than a side bun.
I don't think it really matters, though. The whole point of the side-thingie is to be uber-casual about it.
As it happens, when I wore this look to work this past Friday, two of my co-workers and I were all wearing some form of black with white polka dots.

Now about Miss Tammy, aka Uppiesbeads59, aka Crazy Miss Tammy
|So, yeah, isn't she ridiculously gorgeous?|
I'm not sure just how I came across Miss Tammy on YouTube. All I know is that, although I love the young YouTube beauty tutorialists, I had really been wanting to find one closer to my age.
Miss Tammy fit the bill perfectly. I think she's a few years younger than me, but she knows all about the things we women-of-a-certain age are going through, and she's all about aging gracefully, beautifully and elegantly.
And as a professional aesthetician, she can give knowledgeable and practical advice.
Not only that, she's funny and has a great personality. She often slips off into a foreign accent that's so cute...I don't know if it's real or just for fun.
Anyway, I got the side-thingie inspiration from Miss Tammy. Now, understand that her hair is a lot longer than mine, so she rocks it a lot better. But I now leave you with her tutorial for the messy side bun.
