I don't experiment with my look often.
I'm a wake up and go kind of girl
when I'm wearing my hair natural (which is 97% of the time these days) I don't have to do much;
it styles itself
my makeup routine has been the same for as long as I can remember
I don't stray too often from my signature cat eye and nude, red or brown lip
and my hair has been some variation of blonde for the past 3 years (aside from the random rainbow hue for festival season)
B O R E D!
so one day while scrolling through Instagram, I saw a friend of mine knew how to achieve the goddess locs style and reached out to her immediately. We set up an appointment for the following week.
I'm very happy with the way they turned out. Initially my scalp was not feeling me.. I've never had my hair braided with extensions before, and it was a little rough to get used to at first, (with all the added weight of the hair) but after a few days I was able to fully love the style - scalp and all. Aside from how drastically different the look is for me, I especially love how easy it is to maintain. It's a style that actually looks better the longer it is in (the locs get fuzzier, giving the appearance of a more natural look). It has also helped me lean a little more toward letting my highlights grow out and embracing my roots (we'll see...).
I'm not sure how long I'm going to keep the style in - it's been about two weeks - and I'm already ready to switch it up again. But for now, I'm making the most of my new 'do.
