This is sooo late, ii got these braids aaagges ago but here goes. As my final exams were fast approaching, I decided that I just didn’t have enough time to properly take care of my hair. I noticed that due to my laziness, it had already started getting more dry and knotty, and you know what? Ain’t NOBODY got time for that! So I took advantage of some hair services a received from an auction and got my hair done.
I wanted to get either braids or twists done in a style I hadn’t done before, so I went for the trend of loooonnnggggg braids that everyone seems to be rocking in the library (my current home). Now I’m a small person, only 5″1 and I was wondering whether long braids might just be a little too much and swamp me. So to counter-act the length of the braids, I asked for it not to be too full, which she achieved wonderfully. The braids are just a bit fuller than the volume of my hand, so I can pull it together without too much hassle and the longest braid ends up at my tailbone, with most braids hanging around my waist.
This has to be one of my favourite hairstyles EVER!! I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it, and a lot of people have told me that I look really different and that they didn’t recognise me, which I’m hoping is a compliment ?!?!?!?! Any who I’m set for exams and don’t have to worry about styling for the most part.
