Like a tomboy, but for hair.

1. It's not that you have bad hair, it's just that you only have two hairstyles: up or down.

Makes getting ready in the morning pretty easy, actually.

2. And sometimes even those styles can be questionable.

My hair has a life of its own. I cannot control it, and you shouldn't try to either.

3. You have absolutely no idea what to do with bobby pins.

I put them into the hair to do what, exactly?

4. Braids are insanely frustrating, because they look so simple, but you can't ever do them right.

But it looks so easy! Why is it hard?!

5. The idea of spending time trying to figure out how to do a different style actually makes you sad.

6. And every time you DO try a new ~fancy~ style, something inevitably goes wrong.

I did this to myself, really.

7. As far as hair accessories go, you really just have the one kind.

But with all the color options, it FEELS like several hair accessories.

8. Because you don't know how to style your hair, you've thought about cutting it all off so you don't have to stress about it anymore.


Less hair, fewer problems?!

9. If you're having a bad hair day, the world will likely know, because there's no way you're going to figure out how to fix it.

10. Formal events are always a nightmare, because that means more is expected of your hair.


But haven't you given all you could, at this point?

11. The idea of posing for photos can often be stressful, because you don't know what state your hair is in.

12. People literally have no idea how to react when you try something different, because you so rarely do.

Which is totally fine, tbh.

14. And it feels a little like playing dress up, if you're being totally honest.


Pretty hair is pretty awkward, really.

15. Pinterest hair tutorials look like actual hieroglyphics to you.

Who were these instructions made for, and are they real steps that humans can follow?

16. It's not that you don't WANT cool hairstyles, it's just that you literally have no idea how to do them.

17. And products? No, you don't understand why or how they exist.

18. When you see other people who are really great at doing their hair, you feel just a little bit jealous.

Why didn't I get this gene?!

19. But you've learned to embrace your hair for what it is: perfect without all the extra fuss.


Who needs a fish braid when I've got all this?! Is "fish braid" a thing? No? Whatever.
