Summertime, And The Livin's Easy

I found my Duaflex the other day while I was cleaning my studio space and realized I haven't been experimenting with it like I wanted so I took a couple of shots around the house. I think I'm going to use it at Sebastian's party to see how it captures people. Little people that don't stand still for very long.

I know some people like to use a contraption but I'm pretty happy with the images after editing.

And here's how it looked through the viewfinder without a contraption and before editing.

And this is how I'm going to do my hair all summer when I don't have time/want to wash it. Two little buns at the nape of my neck to tame the chaos.

I saw Leigh-Ann's new favorite summer hair trick. How do you fix your hair when the temps rise?

I love your curly hair! I usually twist my hair up in a bun, stick a pencil (or whatever's handy) through it, and take it down when I go out. Then it's all wavy and fun! Curled by the heat and humidity.

Love those pictures..

That's how I've started doing mine for the summer!
(It's a bit of a bad habit actually, I've been doing it basically every day because it's so easy)

I love the pictures, especially the first one with the dresses. Your hair looks cute! I have curly hair too, but it has been so frizzy from the humidity so I either braid it, or ponytail it.

I love your blog! xoxo

I have stick straight hair, so my only option is a messy bun or ponytail.

big ol bun on the top of my head (i too have big hair) and a head band/scarf to jazz it up :))

Kristi said...

garcia.sol said...

I have to try that hair style! I have short curls as well and need a new do!

headbands, headbands, headbands! its a good excuse to own an embarassing number of them, which i totall do - beaded ones, plain ones, jazzy ones, soft ones, thick ones, thin ones............ and the list goes on:)

my hair and i are in a perpetual battle...so in the summer, i will wash, blow dry, and curl and then not wash it again for a few days...sounds gross to some but i find that with each day, the oil keeps my hair shiny and wavy rather than frizzy (i hate humidity). and to wear it up, i will twist into a low side bun and secure with a rubber band and/or bobby pins.

by the way, i think showering is SUCH a chore. :)

Lauren said...

that's a brilliant hair idea! I wish I had big curls like you! I love the photos! :)

AshleyAnn said...

The ability to fix your hair like that is just so unfair! I love it, you should wear it that way even when you have time to fix it!

Your curls are amazing! I have a-few-inches-from-my-butt hair and while wavy at times, it's pretty straight. I'm going to say 9 times out of 10, I just tie it into a bun with no hair ties or anything. It's long enough to do that so that's what I always resort to, though I wish it wasn't that easy so I'd actually have to go out of my way to style it on occasion!

malori said...

When it gets hot, I'm a bum. My hair (now that it's long enough) goes right into a ponytail. But when it gets even longer, I braid it to keep it out of the way :). I love your curly hair, mine is stick straight and, as a result, rather boring.

I really enjoy that iconic "un-focused" vintage look you were able to capture with your camera, Rachel!

Photographs like those always seem to capture a really classic charm to them.

:]

I am all about the messy ponytail, or a bun. I love your curly hair buns!

Rubyellen said...

those pictures are so good without the contraption! my go to hair is a big side bun. come to think of it, i rarely leave my hair down these days! i love your little curly-q buns!

Meg said...

i often pins by wavy locks with a handful of bobby pins. yours looks lovely like that!

Liz said...

Nice photos!
As far as summer hair, I've been bundling it up on top of my head when it gets too hot/I don't have time to *do* it. Your little buns at your nape are adorable!

Melissa said...

I've been doing the high bun. I think I saw the little demo on Elsie's blog. Love your curly hair.

Kristen said...

Love the curls! And your hair looks really cute like that..

Gingiber said...

Your pictures are dreamy. My hair is not my friend during the summer.... I have yet to figure out something cute to do with it!

Michelle said...

Pretty, pretty! And I looove your lil curly buns! I have to say, I whip mine up into a lazy bun when it gets hot out - it makes me feel lazy...lol...but keeps the neck cooler. :) If I had sweet curls I'd be tempted to copy you, right now. :)

Hambergoosa said...

adorable, If you invest in a box of big bobby pins the options are endless! I can get all my hair up in a bun with one! Try it out, you'll be amazed
