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.

Rooster

I know it’s hard to image what feather extensions look like off the runway so I snapped a quick photo to give you a full visual. Look hard at my hair and you might catch a climpse of the rooster feather. I told you it’s subtle. Definitely not a long-term look, but fun for now. What do you think?

Feathers

My weekend was about as unproductive as Dexter’s life. I didn’t cook, I didn’t clean, I didn’t shop and I didn’t exercise. But I did visit my family and I did get a couple of feather extensions in my hair. My mom is a hair stylist and I’m her guinea pig.

I can assure you it doesn’t look like this:

In fact, you have to look really hard to see the feathers. I aim for subtlety. I work in corporate America after all.

Gasp, gulp, gush.

I just impulsively braided my bangs.

My Weekend

My poor monster is recovering from a dog bite wound he got last Sunday at the park so I plan to spend as much time as possible coddling him this weekend. Also on the agenda: the Holiday Hootenanny concert in San Diego featuring the Black Keys  and a visit to my extremely talented hairdresser mother for a root touch up.
