One of my biggest challenges is stepping out of my normal routines. I just always do what I am comfortable with. Every once in a while I will challenge myself to do something different. It’s my way of changing things up out of what I am use to. Last week I decided I was tired of wearing my hair in my normal braids and twists. So I decided it was time to give my hair a break and wear some different styles. Monday I was lazy and decided to keep the twists I already put in my hair in and just pinned my hair up. Tuesday I did a mini puff and twist out bang. Wednesday I wore my hair out but I added two flat twists to make it different. Thursday I just wore my hair out. Friday I just pinned my hair up. I didn’t really like the style but I forced myself to keep it. I also didn’t like the picture I took of it so there is no picture of this style. There also isn’t a picture of Monday’s style since it was the same style.
It was important for me to do this challenge for 3 reasons:
- I wanted to challenge myself to put more effort into my look.
- I wanted to challenge myself to be more creative with my hair.
- I wanted to force myself to enjoy a new look without worrying about what everyone else though. (This is my biggest problem.
- I just felt it was time to mix things up.
Now that I know I can do all 3 of these things I feel I can do this more often. I will be trying more looks. I already have a few ideas. It was really fun to just try.
