My Hair Stories..."Long and Twisted...Havana Style"

In preparation for my scheduled vacay next week...I finally got the hairstyle that I have been craving for since last year...long twists!! I opted for a more thicker look that was similar to the much loved protective style called Havana Twists. I often have kinky twists in my hair, but never this length, so it was a real change from the norm. The only instance I had before this were long chunky braids that I wore in 1997...famously known as Dookie Braids (those who had them, know exactly what I'm referring too...but I couldn't take it back that far, lol!) I always wanted them as you have seen from a previous post, so I was completely geeked as I sat in the chair at my hair salon, waiting patiently to have the installment finished. I absolutely LOVE the results!! It's perfect for vacation and the summer...I don;t know why I didn't get them sooner!

For visability reasons, I have been placing it in a high bun for work, a little heavy for me, but way easier than whipping my hair back and forth :)
