Braiding Experiments: A Memoriam

What do you do when your boyfriend is prettier has prettier hair than you? 

Experiment No.7, owner of the prettiest hair outside of L’Oreal commercials and fantasy movies, cut his tresses back to a little less than shoulder length, much to my dismay. It’s apparently hard finding a job when you’re a guy with really long hair, so I gave him permission… but still. Because I mourn the loss of his glorious mid-back long locks, here is a compilation of some things I have done to his hair when it was still at full length.

Four-strand braid

Other styles I’ve tried on him but unfortunately didn’t photograph include a Legolas hairdo (great tutorial here), Fingon’s ribbon braids (this person got it perfectly right), a five-strand braid, a french braid, fishtail braids, and all kind of combinations of the following. *sigh* I’m despairing at his short hair… What am I going to do now with my Pinterest boards full of braid ideas?

(And no, growing my own hair out is not an option. My natural hair is some vague shade of mousy brown, generally does something undefinable between frizzing and curling, and grows slower than grass on the arctic. There is a good reason why I like wearing wigs, and this is it. I have no good hair days. Ever. Not to mention that I’m far too clumsy to braid my own hair.)

Anyway, R.I.P. glorious hair. You will be sorely missed.

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
