I knew I had a wedding to go to the following weekend, and I asked April to give me a style that would last and look different, so we did itty bitty bantu knots. I totally loved them. They were so cute, and totally gave me that sleek, short haired look that I love. They were also nice and cool and a cinch to take care of- since I had to do absolutely nothing to them!
When I was ready to take them out, my mom took little scissors to each rubber band, and I was left with a head of really tight curls. Most of them still stayed twisted in little knots. Good thing I took them down a few days before the wedding so that the curls would have time to loosen and relax!
Here are a boatload of pics!

So, now my hair has been washed and no longer has those fun, girly curls. But, I am pleased to say they are starting to really look like locks. The shaving helped a lot! Yay! That makes me more happy than you could know. See for yourself!

How's your hair coming along?
