I asked my jamaiicaan coworker to hook me up with a french braid...and she did..I love it.

I have been putting sporadic thin braids in my hair these past few months. It's a big thing in Hollywood right now..and back in style..not house in the prairie braids, but all sorts of other new braids. My favorite right now is the waterfall braid. I don't know how to do it yet, but I'll practice on my daughter and then try it on my myself. This is it:

Hi Hawk! I have always liked braids. I confess I put a few feathers in my hair this summer. Subtle and understated elegance. :p That's me.

Schade, NOW I know why I've always liked you so much! :D

Hope you are well!!

And yes, feathers are all the rage too now....I wore feather earrings in the 80's, but haven't bought any new ones...yet.

Sad face? And it's actually two little ones. Might need to go back a page or two in the lounge, we had a recent acquisition. :D

I have found that feathers are a bit of a pain to maintain, but they're fun to wear. I was just killing time and felt the need to immerse myself in the estrogen zone.. who should I find but BokDobloYo in the estrogen zone.... how weird.

Clearly, he's in touch with his feminine side.

He yearns to have a feather ... and a braid. It's getting late and I need my beauty sleep, take care!

He might wear a feather or two in is hair. He's posted some pics with fairly long hair (not that long hair on a guy is a bad thing). :D

SR wears his hair so short that no braids or feathers for him. :p (Or me either. I had my hair cut short when we moved to Florida---it was too darned hot in the summer for the long hair).

Long hair on a guy can be very nice if it's nicely kept. I bet Bok preens daily, maybe even bi-daily. Feathers and braids would not work on SR for the reasons mentioned. :D

Getting my hair cut this Saturday and I am thinking of going short and sassy, but also kind of liking the length it is even if it is hard to control at times.

Don't get into the guy preening thing. I used to have a boss who couldn't resist a mirror or his reflection in a plate glass window. In fact the entire sales team was like that, prided themselves on being pretty boys. It was too sickening, quit that corporation and went back to my old company, where the guys were just normal guys.

How long is your hair now? I'll bet it looks greyt, as usual.

I always wore my hair shoulder length, but now it's easy to see my earrings. :D
