So the story really started on Sunday, when I started taking my mini-braids down around 3 pm. I thought, "Great, I'll be done taking these down by the end of today!" Well guys, I finished HALF of my head on Sunday, and I wasn't feeling so hot Monday - winter cold. Although I feel much better today, sometime between Sunday and today my hair has become a half-unbraided/half-braided big hair MESS!
I had this beautiful bohemian look planned for today. It was warm, flowy and just awesome. Then, once I realized that I wasn't done with my hair, I knew I needed SOMETHING to cover it. The cover - this scarf - did not work with the bohemian look. I threw this together in 2 minutes for an after-lunch meeting that required me to look decent. This is the final look. I feel like having some of the braids showing makes it look like perhaps I did this on purpose as opposed to: "ALERT! BAD HAIR DAY!" Plus, turbans are totally hip this season.
Today was a bad hair day, but I think I made the best of it. Looking at the pictures, it's not so bad to me...I would venture to show you what's lurking under the scarf, but I don't want to scare anyone. I'll have a hair update coming after I take these braids out...which is now worse than putting them in!
I decided to make a quick vid to show you how I tied my scarf - enjoy!
