Today's tutorial is actually, one of my most favorite looks to wear when I work at my waitressing job. It looks like it took work to do, yet it is pretty simple! And it also does the job of keeping my hair out of my face, when I am running around and when my hair is actually getting messier, it looks like its all part of the look!!
