It's hot today and after going out shopping not once, but twice, I was ready for a cooler way to wear my waist length hair. So I shampooed it, and while it was wet, I combed it over my shoulder as if I was going to do my usual over the shoulder braid. But instead of braiding it, I twisted it and coiled it into a chignon just behind my ear. It sits there quite comfortably and won't get in my way if I have to lean back in a car or on a couch. I secured it with four dark bobby pins. It's a bit loose and messy. If I was going to wear it for swimming or ballet, I'd make it tighter. My flyaway hair is a lot easier to style when it's wet, but do what works best for you.
