Dreadlocks

The second time is a charm too, right?
I tried a few years ago to do dreadies but I didn’t spend enough time putting them in
And my hair wasn’t quite as long as I would have liked to start with.
SO
I did some other things, grew it out, cut it short, colored it and what have you,
But I really REALLY don’t like constant hairdo maintenance and realized that every time I grow it long,
I end up slapping it up in a bun and then I feel boring.
SO
I decided to hop back on the train and try this once again.
I really just love the style of locks,
And the fact that I DON’T HAVE TO BRUSH MY HAIR!
YES I AM 8 YEARS OLD!
Ha.

So there you have it, kids.

Half and Half

If you’ve ever struggled with growing out your hair,
Or trying to work up the nerve to cut it short,
Perhaps you should simultaneously do both!
I probably won’t but you can.
Project Runway’s Anya did it,
And she totally pulled it off with her adorable little face.
Here is a little Anya-inspired doodle I fingerpainted with this new android tablet
The program is called sketchbook I think….
And it’s FREE!

Pompadour and Circumstance.

In a valiant effort not to cut my hair,
I have been going to places I normally don’t go.

Like a pompadour.
Preceded by sponge rollers.

I even took a picture of myself trying to look cool and nonchalant.

But then…

Out of nowhere…

I got punched in the face by my blatant accessorization.
And that’s not even a word.
So you can imagine my surprise.
The moral of this little story is:
A.  It’s hard to be serious when you’re taking pictures of yourself and

B.  Growing your hair out may lead to the unexpected.

(SIDE NOTE:  Also, today I stumbled upon a petting zoo that was randomly happening behind the library and pet the following: an alpaca, pot-belly pig, chicken, giant rabbit, goat, sheep, donkey, cow, and probably rested my hand in a pile of urine-soaked wood chips without knowing it.
WHICH, IN TURN, proves that what you don’t know doesn’t hurt you.)

C.  Don’t be afraid to do something different with your hair, it may lead you straight to a petting zoo.

One more thing; Betty Grable’s pompadour here is just fanTASTIC.
