Pardon the crazy faces... My friend did this style, and I was trying to get her to take pictures with my DSLR... That was probably more time consuming than the hairstyle itself. it's basically a psuedo bun with a swooped bang.
So, yesterday the locs turned 2.... I really can't believe that I have been loc'd for 2 whole years. It's been one heck of a journey, and now I'm at the stage where it's just a matter of watching them grow. I just keep saying I'll be satisfied once they are long enough that the locs in the front will fit back into my ponytails... in the meantime I make due with finding fun ways to keep the shorties out of my eyes... and though it's not of my hair specifically, here's a pic from last night:
I danced so hard I was sore before we even left the club.
I don't know if I mentioned it in my last post or not, but lately I've been feeling kind of blah about my locs. So first I dyed them, then I got them retightened, and last I went prowling around youtube for some inspiration. I ended up finding this:
My hair is not nearly so long as pecadora's but I gave it a whirl and came up with my own twist on her 'do:
|Really like my color here|
|over the hump|
|The knots (and some of the escaped ends)|
|my work pants say hi|
Instead of spacing them out and stopping after one or two knots like she did, I just kept tying until I got to the back of my head. I then just tucked the loose ends into the bottom (you can see them peeking out in some pics). Still can't believe I'll be 2 years in like 12 days
So it just dawned on me that I haven't posted in over a month, and you know what... it's because I'm in a rut. No new styles, no major developments nothing. I combined two locs on my left hand side, and if I like how they turn out I'll combine some on my right. I also colored my hair last night, and I kinda don't know how I feel about it. Other than that yeaaaaaa nothing much going on around these parts but the rent. In the meantime I'm knocking at the door of 2 years loc'd.
Yep today is my birthday, and my locs are 3 months away from the 2 years mark... I cannot complain. I celebrated over the weekend by going out with 3 of my favorite ladies. The hair is a day old perm rod set (I sweated a lot of the curl out with my tipsy dancing).

I can't say that there was much too it, I used gray/pink rods on damp locs. No gel or setting product, and NO HEAT. I really do despise my hooded dryer, but it serves it's purpose. I'm thinking my hair looks like curly fries.
