don't mind me...just making a silly face...
September 14th: New Activity-Taking Down An Up-do
I haven’t had too many up-do’s in my life.
In fact, I can count on one hand how many I have had.
Back in the 9th grade, when it was in, I had a finger wave and a French roll. You had to gel the stuff to death to get it to stay.
In college, a couple of times, I rocked a bun.
But other than that, unless I was able to put my hair in a ponytail, I preferred my hair to be loose and carefree.
I enjoyed having my loc hawk. It was different and adventurous. It made quite the conversation piece, not only at work but other places as well.
The only drawback was after a while, the pins started getting to me.
In particular were a few at the very center of my head, holding one part of the hawk to the other part of the hawk. Whenever it was bumped against or if I were to sleep on it, the point would dig into me.
So because it became annoying, and because that part of my head was becoming a bit tender, I slowly went through the process of taking it down.
Although I don’t remember the precise number of pins that were in my hair, I did count close to twenty.
My hair still has a little bit of wave in it from all the twists and turns of the loc hawk, but I know the center of my head is breathing a sigh of relief.
Would I ever get the style again? Of course!
But I still like it free.
