Mother Nature Doesn’t Care About Your Hair: A Letter to Bad Hair Weather
“Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head,” and you’re ruining my hair!
I don’t spend time prepping my hair before bed and crafting it to perfection in the morning just for it to fall because of the rain. Rain, I’m tired of you being the cockblocker of a perfect hair day. Today was a prime example of how I just cannot seem to be great when Mother Nature decides she wants to send monsoons our way.
Drake was blaring from my speakers, and I was dressed way earlier than usual. This was ideal because I just got a new haircut so I wanted to have time to play around with it. I played around for a while until it was exactly how I wanted it. Stepping outside, it was clear that Mother Nature said “Not today honey. Try again tomorrow.”
This would’ve been fine if my hair was longer. But it’s extremely hard to look cute when your hair is as short as Anne Hathaway’s. The wind and rain allows you to look anything but cute. If I had long tresses I could see how I would use the rain to my advantage. In disgusting weather it’s so much easier to feel like Beyonce. Short hair and gross weather will have you looking like an awkward 11-year-old boy.
Huffington Post once deemed Howard University as one of the most fashionable universities. On days like today, they would be ready to take our title back. The messy buns, collegiate caps and trash bags that were used to salvage the do’s on campus were enough to give me a chuckle.
What do you do to keep your hair cute in inclement weather?
