So, as part of Dress Your Best week, I’ve started off with showing off my hair. My hair is curly, as you can see. Similar to many other people with curly hair, I used to hate my hair. I didn’t know what to do with it. Nobody else in my family had curly hair, no one knew where it came from. Junior high and high school was difficult. When I finally got to college, I started learning how to properly care for my hair. I learned to wash it properly, style it properly, and it repaid me by showing it what it can do.
What My Hair Can Do:
- Hold heat styles with no hairspray (Straightening, Curling Irons)
- Grow insanely fast.
- Hold semi-permanent color for 6 months instead of 6 weeks.
- Withstand Great Plains winds and still stay spunky.
Now, some would say that I’ve broken a few cardinal rules about curly hair: mainly, that my hair is fairly short. I had long hair for a long time, cropped it super short in high school, and wore it long again in undergrad. I like this medium length here because it looks good straight or curly, it’s a nice length to manage, and it’s spunky. And I’m all about the spunk.
To show off my curls for Dress Your Best week, I just decided to dress them up with a shiny blue ribbon. Too often I want to pull my hair off of my face, to the detriment of my curls. And actually, my hair is still wet in this photo, which is a different look than when it finally dries. I meant to take a second picture, but finals week defeated me. The ribbon was also a little short, and ended up falling out after a couple hours.
