I have this problem where I cannot decide for the life of me whether I like my hair straight or curly.

Now see, each style has its own positives and negatives.

With straight hair, I appear sophisticated, more "womanly." However, this style requires me to re-straighten my hair nearly every morning because it must be bone straight. This can be quite a strenuous process in addition to being very time consuming.

On the other hand, curly hair is more fun and immediately sets me apart from other people where ever I go. It is in a sense a physical display of my uniqueness. Despite this, with this style I feel as though some people assume I'm some "I'm black and I'm proud" chick, which I find very annoying (though there is nothing wrong with this if it is your personal style).

An aside on my curly hair:

With my hair currently being curly, my mother has been hounding me in regards to this. What's wrong with my hair I ask? It's stylin' (lol), is it not? To this she replied that its current state is "unfitting," "a bloody mess," and that she "does not want me to be seen at work like this."
Hmm, what lovely comments to profess to your daughter. –_–

In all honesty, I don't see what the big fuss is all about. I mean sure, it's a bit wild and untamed (okay, alot) but that's the style I was going for. Frequently, people speak kind words in regards to my hair (awkwardly, a lot of people just stare also). I've yet to hear anyone tell me that they hated it, that is except my own mother!


But anywho, with that being said, what shall it be?

Straight and sophisticated, or Curly and wild?

Your mom is CRAZY, you look so much better with the curly hairstyle! It IS stylin' hahaha & it makes you look more hip & fun :) & unique. No offense, you look nice with straight hair also but so many people have straight hair that it gets really boring!
