A Professor's Hair Diary. And the first week post at Week 1.
I thought I'd catch you up on the past two weeks.
Week Two we only had class two days because of Labor Day.
Grace did this side-braided bun on Wednesday.
Then on Friday, she twisted the sides and created a rose in the back.Next we moved on to Week Three on Monday.
This is a braided headband.
As I look at all these pictures of my hair, I realize that parts of it have really gotten redder or lighter from the sun. Never fear, I'm going to the hair stylist next week and she can hopefully rectify that.
This is the first day I've had to do my hair myself because Grace left for a trip to Dublin and London. I fell back on a traditional French twist. The filter I used on instagram makes it look a little purplish.
On Friday, I tried a complicated, basket-weave type hairstyle. Because my hair is curly (or because I did it wrong?) it doesn't look the same. Basically I created four pony tails on the back of my head and tucked them through, then separated them and curled them under at the sides. It looks a bit of a mess, doesn't it?
Here's the original photo of what it should have looked like.
But you can see she did it on a mannequin and I don't have mannequin hair. I get my hair cut on Tuesday and since she usually straightens it, I could try this hairstyle again and see if it is more successful. Or would that be cheating to use the same style?
When I finished working on my hair that morning, I felt like I'd had quite a workout.
After three weeks of different hairstyles, none of my students have noticed or said anything, including four students who had me for class in previous semesters.
I did have one student who told me she liked my hair when I wore it in the French twist, so at least she noticed something.
