    Maybe you can just come do my hair for me every morning?!

    Of course, you’d have to travel cross-country, and I probably couldn’t pay you, but you still want to, right? 🙂

    Why does it feel mandatory to jam while getting pretty? I don’t know why, but it’s sooo fun. =)

    I absolutely love your hair tutorials! Especially since you have thick hair! I have really thick hair myself, so it lets me see what styles will actually look like in my hair. I hate when I see hairstyles online and keep saying to myself, “I have WAY too much hair for that.”
