I was your classic case of, I hate my hair, it won’t do anything, wahwoh. I really wanted to start wearing the middle part but, Guys, my hair just won’t do it. Same excuse with a top knot. I have super thin hair + a crazy cowlick with a mind of it’s own. So I wore my hair the same way from high school on.
UNTIL. About 6 months ago, I tried my hair in a center part. My husband went nuts–he loved it. When I looked in the mirror, I thought it looked super weird, but that’s just because I wasn’t used to seeing it. But I set that aside and wore it occasionally to get somethin’ extra. ;)
And pretty soon, it looked normal to me. I loved it. Same story with the top knot.
To you, it probably looks totally normal. But it wasn’t my normal for the longest time. And now I’m just like, Why did I wait so long to try this?!
So all that to say, if you’re like, Yeah…my hair just doesn’t DO that I think you should try it anyway. Just remember the cycle: At first you’ll protest with excuses. Then you’ll try it and think it looks weird. And then finally, you’ll kinda fall in love with it.
