I’ve never been much of what you’d call a “girlie girl.” I don’t paint my fingernails, I rarely wear eye shadow, I like heels only if they’re sturdy and sensible, prefer cotton undergarments, and like a purse that’s as utilitarian as it is attractive. This attitude to appearances definitely gets extended to my hair.
It’s funny. For someone that grew up with a mother completely enamored with hot rollers and hair spray, aside from a period of attachment to my curling iron in middle school (those photos never need surface, thank you kindly), I’ve never been one to do much with my hair. Mom, on the other hand, is always seeing her stylist, showing up with red highlights or spikes on top and fringe in the front (she’s fashionably adventurous, this mother of mine!). Meanwhile, my take is to either part it on the side, put it in a ponytail, plop it in a hair clip, or pile it on top with a hair tie.
Until my sisters come to visit, that is. Then I get to look presentable. I get to get girlie. I get my Katniss on, you see. Big thanks to my younger sister ,Devan, for doing my ‘do and to my littlest sister, Theo, for capturing it for posterity.
I got my hair did, ya’ll. And I liked it.
What about you? Do you do cool things with your hair? Any easy go-to tips you’d like to share? I’d love to have a few styles I could turn to, without having to wait until my sisters visit every few months before I’m able to look nice and proper.
