I have a new found respect for hairstylists.
By no means did I think their jobs we’re easy, but until I felt the sting in my lower back and ankles from being on my feet for hours braiding hair, I couldn’t even begin to say I understood. I still can’t.
My girl from college let me play in her hair this past weekend. I don’t do hair. I’ve never put my hands in someone’s hair or even fixed my mouth to say I would try. Not until this weekend when I was asked, “Can you do something with my hair please?”
The video may be 4 minutes and 13 seconds long, but trust me when I say this took me a long time to do. You can practically see the sleep dropping off of her face in the video below.
I learned that I can actually braid and I’m proud of myself.
