I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Sometimes I look at a girl's hair and am just fascinated with how they got it to look that way. Most men have pretty minimalist hair, unless they're some kind of metrosexual. We shave it close or comb it one way, and just leave it that way. Women are often really creative and can do some amazing stuff with their hair, usually involving braids.

French braids look really nifty to me. I sort of understand the principle behind the french braid, its sort of an inside-out ordinary braid, but they look so good. Even the basic one is really pretty:

And you can do little variants on it:

But then people get creative, putting them in front

Or sideways:

And sometimes they make amazing designs:

I think its more mom who does this with girls because they are treating their daughter's hair as a work of art more than something they have to bother with every day. I mean it must take an hour or more to get some of these done, and that's more work than most people want to put up with for every day work.

And then there are the really creative efforts that look just amazing but take some serious hair to attempt:

What I don't care for is ridiculous crap like this:

Its one thing to be creative and interesting, and another to get simply idiotic. Most hair styles that models have on the runway are idiotic these days. But a really interesting hairstyle is nice to see, like a work of art.

Just don't go with tard hair like the reverse bangs:

That's the second most regrettable hair trend of the present time, after the fauxhawk.

OK I admit it, I'm feeling kind of lousy and this was a good excuse to post pretty girls, but the whole braid thing and what girls can do with their hair really does fascinate me.
