Braided Top Bun

I’ve always been a “hair down” type of girl. I think it’s the result of my chubby childhood. When you’re fat at 12, you either become the funny kid or you hide behind your hair. I’m not the funny kid.

I still usually wear my mane down, although it’s wild most days and is in desperate need of a deep conditioning. But every once in a while, I’ll see a carefree girl with a fishtail braid or a top knot and I try and convince myself that my cheeks will look just as slender even if they’re not half hidden by my hair. Next time I feel really secure with myself, I’m making friends with this braided top bun.
