|My first post-millennium bang braid: 2005|
The first is one I've previously mentioned- the Waterfall French Braid seen here.

I love this lowered version of a braided bang. I found a really good instructional video for the look as well. The girl "Lilith the Dark Moon" who gives the hair tutorial cracks me up. English is clearly her second language, but she has a whole site within Youtube full of really good how-to's for virtually every hair style. I call this one the Swoopy French:

BUUUUUT, I can't. I've been coloring my hair since I was 14 and after one too many close encounters of losing it all due to the damage, I promised myself I wouldn't touch it for ONE WHOLE YEAR. That was this past September, and I have stuck to my commitment. I've been au naturel for almost 10 months now!
What to do, what to do...
I remembered the only other time I had a crayon color on my head was when I used to get hair wraps.
You know, the things you make your parents pay $95 (+ tip) for when you go on vacation?? They were the best. To me, they're synonymous with tan lines and Disney World. Good times.
