I love weaves. It’s my favorite hairstyle/look. It flatters my face beautifully and I’m totally aware of this fact *cough*no modesty*cough*.
But between fighting the elements, the extremely hot weather and my latest obsession with fitfam, I just haven’t had a weave done in forever and I missed it. I pride myself on my practicality and so I knew that it just wasn’t feasible to be carrying around a full head of gone-with-the-wind-fabulous hair but sometimes common sense is so boring. Nothing like a good day to wake up and just make those “just for the heck of it” choices. Like stuffing your face with everything bad, refusing to exercise, swearing/cussing at everything for no apparent reason etc. Just fuck shit up!!!!…. For no damn reason!
Anyways…. Hair! I missed my mami water tresses. I missed being cute. I missed twirling my hair with my fingers while pretending to be coy as a young hottie chats me up, yes. I missed it so much that I woke up today defiant like fuck this, I’m getting mine. Practicality and fitfam be damned.
And it was worth it……. Just negodu.
Who’s that guuuuuuuuuuuuuurl… na na na na *meow*.
Fleek! Fleeker! Fleekest!!!! I swear I looked at this selfie after i’d taken it like, na me be this? FUCK IT UP!!!! Baddie!!!
I walked out of that salon like …. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, KINDLY MAKE WAY FOR THE ONE AND ONLY GORGEOUS BROWNSKIN; she approaches! *applause* Then I proceeded to float; no glide, sorry waltz around the streets of Wuse 2 in no damn hurry to be no damn place! And the approving stares I got were like opium, I was high on my own damn self. Winner!
The ever present pout? Gotta thank my mama’s papa for passing it on to my mum who passed it on to me and now I can bewitch the boys *passes offering basket*.Thanks Grandpa.
I do not know why I look like Rihanna + Tyra Banks’ lovechild with the “opon” in this 3rd picture but I swear to you guys on tapioca and kose [shoutout to Hauwa’s cook], that I do not have a forehead the size of the staples centre. Must be the angle. And i don’t joke with my tapioca so you know i’m not even playing.
PS: Can i just say, thank you Nigerian men for registering your blatant appreciation when you see a FINE ASS GURL walk by *flicks hurr* Y’all are the best! Kisses for all of you :*
Your’s in unapologetic vanity…
