Dude, side braids are the best thing ever!
I wanted to shower before leaving for the hospital yesterday (The procedure went fine, BTW. My arm is A-OK), because I didn’t know if I’d have to skip a couple days once I had a bandage on, but I didn’t have time to really futz with my hair, so I straightened my bangs with a hairdryer, and put the rest of my mop in a side braid.
I like side braids because 1) they don’t give me a headache like tight buns (Haha! I said tight buns…) and ponytails sometimes do, and 2) they’re fairly easy and have that casually messy look I like.
Mad props to The Hunger Games movies for re-introducing them into my life.
Before those movies came out, I think the last time I actually wore braids of any kind was back in middle school. In seventh and eighth grades I was all about french twists and fishtail braids.
I wore ’em all the time! — but as I got older, I guess I started looking at braids as more for kids and moved on to ponytails, buns and french twists instead.
Now, though (thanks, ironically, in part to a series of young-adult movies), I’m back in love with braids.
Seriously, if you haven’t worn them in a while, give ’em a whirl!
Today’s hump day hair question for you: when was the last time you braided your hair?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. In case you were wondering what it’s like to be doted on by a tabby cat nurse, the following image pretty much sums it up…
Tabs believes in the healing power of touch. And proper nutrition, obvs. Can’t you can tell by his “healthy” physique?
Last night he ordered El Hub to make me dinner (fish and rice) and then insisted that I eat a scoop of Three Twins’ salted caramel ice cream for dessert.
Whatever tabby wants, tabby gets.
It’s Wednesday (woo-hoo!), which means we’re halfway to the weekend! What’s shakin’ in your neck of the woods? What’s on your agenda today?
