What the Bell?


Back to the days of bell bottoms.

Aunty C went got a weave, boy! For those of you who inquired, this is a full head weave! Interestingly enough, I went to the salon with all intentions on getting a full install with a lace closure. I JUST COULDN’T DO IT. First of all, I took a serious risk by using packaged hair I bought in Philly years ago that I NEVER used. Yes! This is Sensational Premium Human Hair. I also bought the Sensational Goddess Remi 3-part closure. I just wasn’t brave enough to actually risk it. The assistant who was going to bleach my knots and pluck my closure had a very suspicious closure on her own head (side-eye)…I had to make the executive decision then and there to go with the very safe bob cut with bangs. I really like it, just wondering how long this hair ($13.99/pack) will last me, hahahah.

I simply cannot wear an outfit that doesn’t compliment my hair. I just won’t do it. I truly believe your hair completes your look. I’ve seen one too many well dressed women with terrible hair styles that are distracting. If my hair doesn’t look good, I’m not going out. Many times, I’ve gotten my hair done and taken it out the very same day simply because no amount of money spent can change the way I feel about my hair.

I wanted to wear the above look many many months ago but my hair wouldn’t permit. Neither the natural look nor the senaglase twist complimented this outfit. FINALLY, after getting this weave for the first time since October 2013, I was able to pop the tags on these bell bottoms and channel this 1980s look. I wanted to add a modern edge to the picture by tucking my hair in the turtleneck, but the bob cut wasn’t having it.

Probably my favorite look on the blog to date? Didn’t I say that yesterday?

-God bless!

    You are just like me. I save some of my ‘looks’ for when I have a different hairstyle because natural, weaves or braids just don’t complement every outfit.
    And many a times, I have undone my hair on the same day after doing because I just wasn’t having none of that! lol. This lady finished doing my weave and I turned around and said, take it off. Everything. She wasn’t pleased at all. lol, but womp.
    The fringe works for your face and those bell bottoms are hot!!

    I know I love to write a lot. lol. Bye!

    Anywho this had me cracking up “The assistant who was going to bleach my knots and pluck my closure had a very suspicious closure on her own head (side-eye).”…lol #shotsfired
    I never really thought about it but it is so true, some hair styles just don’t go with certain outfits and don’t do certain outfits justice and can definitely be a distraction….mmm Vey true!
    Thanks for sharing deets on the hair. It looks so good on you!
