What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

Mar 08, 2012

We all know how important first impressions are. Before someone opens their mouth for the first time to speak, without realizing it, we form an opinion of them. One of the first things we notice is someone’s hairstyle. You get an impression, right or wrong, whether someone is neat, sloppy, carefree, confident, fashionable, sassy... So what is your hair saying about you? 

Long, Loose Hair

A girl with long, flowing, wavy tresses is seen as playful, relaxed and easygoing.

Ponytail

With your hair up in a ponytail, you can't hide behind your hair. It shows you're sporty, fun-loving, and probably pretty confident.

Headband

The headband look used to belong to preppy girls, but celebs like Paris Hilton have opened up the playing field. Girls who accessorize with headbands are seen as natural, open and playful.

Theres nothing to it.  Juss tell them.  No 'u should if u feel like it,' or anything like tht.  Whts the point of having them go nxt yr juss to find out tht u skipped without telling them.  They cant do anything about it either so juss tell them.  "I am skipping a grade nxt yr.  Theres no point in u guys being mad bc this is a big deal for me and I can't do anything about it."  Thats all.

What it says above. I don't want to come off as rude, but I don't want stupid advice that doesn't help like "u should if u feel like it" because that doesn't help. I want it exactly how I should do it. I shall have to as time is winding down. If you won't do as I request and/or don't know how to follow such simple directions, just don't post! It isn't helpful. Oh, and please, please do not say "well don't brag" or take my peers' point of view. I am not bragging. I am INFORMING.
