Boxed Wrong

Well, well, so I cut my hair to about 3 inches on Friday (no, I will not be sharing the picture-lol). With my short hair,I thought it'd be a perfect time to get the box braids I had been longing for. So on Saturday,I took a trip to a hair braider a coworker had recommended. I hadn't had braids in over 6 years, so I was pretty excited. However, my excitement died when I saw the hot mess on my head.Let's just say next time I am getting my hair done, I will ask to see a 100 page portfolio first.
The plan was to have the braids in for about a month but seeing as it is extremely horrible, I will be taking it out much sooner. Anyway, after a million and one styling attempts, I think I somehow managed to make the hair presentable

This certainly was a waste of my time and money. Sigh!

:-(
So, I tried the purple vampire-ish lipstick thing.

Your hair looks really nice with the purple lipstick. I always hate braids when i first get it done, you might love it more when its older :)

Sorry it's not what you wanted. It looks fine to me. Like was mentioned, maybe wear scarves to hide the part you don't like if it's at the front.

Oh that stinks! I have bad luck w braiders too (they say 140 but proceed to do big doodoo braids in the middle & small around the edges). African Best Braids on Geneva isn't too bad. I'm loving your makeup & I definitely want to try the purple lip.

Oh I know that feeling. After a lot of miserable braids, I finally found a lady that braided my hair perfectly.
You really made it work, love your lipstick.

The braids are not that bad actually, you look pretty and it gives you that adventurious look as well. Ive been on the lookout for a jean top for awhile, seeing how you wore it makes me want to not give up on my hunting

The thing with braids is that they get better with time. The hair looks good on you.

Krisbliss said...

Sorry about the braids girl! Especially since you were anticipating it! ARGH! But as they start to get less stiff they start looking better, and are easier to style! And they don't look bad from these pics! You're still rockin it!

And I like the purple lip on you!
