About 2 weeks ago, Syd and I were in the car when she said, "Remember when I used to get lots of cool styles?"
It was then that I realized it has been FOREVER since she has had a style other than box braids, twists, or twist outs. We're talking months here.
(Stands at the front of the room) Hi, my name is Rae and I'm a hair slacker.
So last weekend I decided to try to be creative. There was only one problem...I've been slacking so long that I think my creativity is stuck in hibernation. After no new ideas came to me, I settled on a mohawk style with some cornrowed side bangs. (I'm not sure it counts as bangs when the hair hangs down past her armpits, but what else can I call that section???)
Here is the style:
So there it was. Not incredibly creative, but still cute and it wasn't box braids or twists/outs. She wore this style for a week before we took it down and gave her a fresh set of plain old two strand twists (I know, I know) for cross country pictures at school.
If anyone spots my creativity hiding somewhere, please let me know asap. Syd's hair misses its old friend.
