The trip came close on the heals of a crazy Halloween party we had at the house a week earlier, so it was literally 2 days before takeoff when I realized I hadn't yet considered what to do with my hair! I frantically called my home girl Jemima who gave me a few great ideas, one of which I half implemented. LOL I got lazy and tired halfway through. The idea was to cornrow the sides and single braid a bunch of the front, then create some sort of twisted updo in back. I got through the cornrows and the first row of braids, but then all the rest became twists. The back just became 8 big twists lol. It still worked out because i didn't have to worry about a messy hairline or using elastics or anything to keep my hair out of my face, and I was still able to create a small variety of styles. I had even decided to leave the back kind of free so I cuold do the whole sexy "getting out of the water" thing ;-* heheh.
But anyway- here was the front before leaving and a few days after. The individual twists and braids in front are just pined into a hump or swept to the side.
and here a few more of the trip over all:
ok, fine- here's the boo too :)
and what was I for Halloween this year? A frog. lol
