I happily loosened my Ghanaian weave on Friday evening. It was a good look but it was due for a change and I looked forward to something fresh and really nice. While looking through a collection of family photos, I came across one in which my hair was absolutely stunning. It was braided and nicely curled from the middle of each braid to the tip. I decided to repeat that style, but I took along my weave-on as back up… you know, just in case.
Well, I got to the salon a little earlier than I usually do and there were not enough stylists on ground to get the job done in good time so I decided to go with plan B as it required only one stylist. To cut the long story short, I ended up spending about the same time or more than I would have spent on the braids because the stylist assigned to me was having a bad day at the office or didn’t quite know how to handle my plan B, and to make matters worse, she did such a poor job, I had to loosen the whole thing. That was such a waste of time and money.
