I finally found a hairdo that works on short hair. Look look! Her hair is shorter than mine!
I’ll prove it. Here’s mine:
I began by making a bun.
And then I sat there and tried to remember how to do a reverse French braid for like a really long time. I used to make French braids on myself regularly. Like, I would do them while walking to class. I was good.
But apparently now that I am old, my hand-eye coordination is not what it once was. Because I sat there and twisted random pieces of hair around each other to no avail for a really long time. I finally managed to trick myself into doing a regular French braid by not looking in the mirror while doing it.
I still never re-learned the reverse French braid thing, which I was never that good at anyway, even at the height of my braiding fitness.
It did not go well.
Abusing the other side of my head in the same manner did not produce results that were any more appealing.
(I think this face could possibly be the next Grumpy Cat style meme.)
Really, the back didn’t look significantly better.
So, sigh, another hair fail. I think the only ones of these I ever do alright at are the ones that I make up myself.
