Looks & Stares

All day I got looks, stares, and compliments on my hair today. I had a lady literally stare me up and down for a minute at the train station. I stared at her back with a big smile on my face. Stand out! Do what’s different! I work in a corporate office but I still manage to always show and embrace who Amirah is. When I woke up this morning, I knew for sure I didn’t want to wear my braids down or up in a regular bun. A few weeks ago, I saw a picture of a girl whose hair was just like this, but with her natural hair and not braids. I told myself then that I needed to recreate that hairstyle. Well, here it is! I thought it was super cute. My Bestfriend said I was giving her Scary Spice, my coworker said I reminded her of Minnie Mouse, and some people looked at me while walking down the street like I was childish but all in all, I love it! These braids and black women’s hair in general are versatile and can be styled in many different ways. Who really cares about what people have to say? Be you and do you what makes YOU happy.
