curling hair tutorial post.... it has taken me a long time to grow my hair out. I got my first hair cut when I was in the 3rd grade, and I didn't even need it. I just begged and begged and begged my mother to let me get one. You see my older sister had hair down to her butt, and I was so very jealous. My goal when I was younger was not to be an astronaut or a vet... it was to have long hair. Mermaid hair to be exact. Don't know what Mermaid hair is? Well, it means your hair was long enough to cover your cha chas :) haha I am dead serious, that is exactly why I called it that when I was little.
Here I am on my first day of First Grade. This "waterfall" hair-do as I called it was my go to favorite at the time. Along with wearing newborn headbands :) haha
It never really grew that long over the years and I finally decided to chop off what little I did have around my freshman year of college. I thought having short hair would make my life easier... but I came to find out that my naturally curly/wavy hair... became uber curly when it was short. It slightly resembled Shirley Temple, but after she had blown up in a microwave. So I started to grow it out after my Freshman year. I haven't cut it since (not counting trims) It should be past my butt right now don't you think? I mean... we are going on three in a half years...*sigh*
It has taken forever but I think I can finally say I have made it there, haha. How do I know this? Well I recently got a gym membership and have been going to lots of different work out classes. The other night at Zumba I felt a tugging on my pony tail.
"Who the heck is pulling my hair?! I am attempting to drop it like its hot right now! Not cool."
I turn around and see no one trying to pull my hair. Then I thought maybe I was imagining things. Hmm, that was odd.
Then I feel it... something is in my arm pit? Hair? Okay, it is totally normal to find hair in your arm pit... but this hair was blonde and long, what?!
During my dancing around, my pony tail had found its way into my arm pit! I was pulling my own hair the whole time!
From a girl who has never had long hair... this was a whole new experience for me! I had no idea this could even happen! Has this happened to other long hair girls? Please share! haha
I think that night was my initiation into the "Long hair club" and I must say... I was pretty excited haha :)
