Finally it had been six weeks. Time to get that new do I’d been craving – a maroon curly quick weave.
Off to the hair store I went. My excitement was high and my intentions were pure. But lo and behold, I couldn’t find what I wanted. So I floundered and pondered what I was going to do while my husband stood in awe at the variety of hair available (he’d never been to a hair store before).
And then, things got interesting….
I couldn’t find one darn pack of maroon hair. All I could locate was a navy blue or hot pink ombre curl, and both options scared me.
I grabbed my husband’s hand and looked into his eyes for direction. He looked back at me, laughed and said, “Do they not have the one you want?”
I rolled my eyes and then shook my head.
“Get the pink one babe”
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Yeah, just try it. You never know!”
And so I did.
This hot pink ombre hair that was a random decision on a Saturday with bae, became one of my favorite hairstyles, and it was a reminder that sometimes the best style moments are the ones you didn’t plan at all.
