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.
Braid crown, GoT style
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.
