Hair Inspiration

Lately, I've been really wanting to make an effort to do more with my hair.
I usually do the same thing:  wash it, comb it out, add a little moroccan oil, and then let it air dry.  It usually ends up nice and wavy, which is awesome for when I have no time to do anything else.  If it ends up really crazy, which sometimes results from sleeping on it the wrong way, I'll put it up in a high bun.  If I have a ton of time and want to look pretty, I'll straighten it, but that really only happens on special occasions because I figure my hair already gets enough damage from the chlorine.  
However, I do want to try to learn more ways to have fun with my hair.  Whether it be a new way to wear it up, or something cute to add to it when it's down, I would like to try to spend more time focusing on hair styles.  Especially since I go to private school and wear a uniform, hair styles are really the only way to show you're unique.
If you aren't a member of Pinterest, then you should know it is a great place to build inspiration boards.  Instead of keeping photos from tumblrs, blogs, and internet sources all in different folders on my desktop, I add them to different "pin boards".  It's a lot like twitter or tumblring, i.e people can "follow" you and your boards, "like" different photos, and "repin" the ones they really like.
I have different boards, but one of my favorites is my "hair inspiration" board.  I've been pinning different photographs of hairstyles I want to try.  Here are some of the ones I especially love:

1.   How awesome is the back of her hair?  This would be interesting to recreate.
2.  I love how she makes glasses look sexy.  The headband plus the waves is the perfect look.
3.  I love this top braid.  
4.  A head wrap like this one would be perfect for when you just feeling like spicing up wavy hair.  I have one that could work.
5.  Zooey is of course my favorite.  But I love how something as simple as pulling the sides of your hair back can make you look sweet and special.
6.  Aren't these feathers wonderful?  I would love to recreate this look in the summer when going to a party on the beach.
7.  Ah, the messy bun.  Still my favorite go to look for days when I just don't feel like doing anything.

8. Wavy, messy hair.  So cool and chic.
9.  The messy braid is wonderful.
10.  I love how the head scarf and sunglasses equal the perfect summer look.  All I need is a tan!
11.  The three mini buns tutorial can be found here! Such a great alternative to the top bun.
12.  I love how all of her braids are piled on high.
13.  This is one of my favorites!  A messy pony tail, with the skinny braid to make it unique.
