The time has come for Rachel to start possibly trying to do something with her hair.
It all started with headbands. I saw girls--coworkers, friends, random people on campus--wearing these really cute headbands. I decided this was a trend I could get behind; headbands are cute, come in many different varieties, (most of the time) are completely painless, and they make it look like I'm doing things with my hair without actually really doing anything with my hair! The first one I bought in Vegas, when I was adventuring with Tracy, kind of on a whim, but it sold me to the headband idea. The next two I bought at the farmer's market.
Then today I decided to attempt something I'm pretty sure the world thought it would never see. Instead of just pulling my hair back, as was the plan, I curled it first. I didn't really put all that much effort into it, as I knew it was just going back anyway, and it really takes forever to really truly curl my hair. So it's more wavy than actually curls. And really, it doesn't look the best. But considering that this is the first time I've curled my own hair all the way through . . . not too shabby, I say.
