punishment for my locks.

 lately, my hair has been driving me freaking nuts. and you know what happens to my hair when it drives me nuts? they get punished by getting put into messy braids. my hair hates messy braids. it gives them bad dreams. braids bring us back to the days of elementary school when my snotty classmates asked me why i didn't brush my hair that morning. when my 3rd grade heart begged mom to use more hairspray to keep the braids from getting frizzy. (snotty classmates, did you NOT know messy is IN?!)

i might have to punish my hair just a little bit longer.
quick, messy, and easy. with that, what's not what to like?

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

  1. Well, I think your braids are cute! You don't want to see what messy looks like right now to me... well honestly, I don't think anything compares to what messy is in COLLEGE haha. Thank you college for putting a new definition to messy hair!

  2. I've been really trying hard to embrace messy hair. Lately I've been putting in some curl spray and then brushing it out so that my hair is kind of wavy. It's hard for me to not grab the curling iron to make perfect curls and hairspray my hair into submission, lol.
