Everyone faces varying degrees of peer pressure at least once in their lifetime, but what matters is how one reacts. In Bad Haircut—a collection of short stories—the author, Tom Perrotta, examines the effect of peer pressure on the main character, Buddy, in a comical yet informative light. Buddy faces peer pressure consistently and ends up associating with the wrong people, due to a lack of backbone. Yet Buddy is different and a better person than those who he associates with because he is compassionate and able to recognize that he is a follower; therein lies the irony that only the reader sees Buddy’s merit while the other characters only see the results of his friends’ poor judgment.
Here, there, everywhere, all I see is more hair. Wild and untamable like a jungle, running freely all over me. Dark as the night, contrasting with my porcelain skin. Sure, I did start the bold brows trend, but that was short lived. While I look like a wildebeest, my mother resembles a Sphynx cat. Sometimes, I wish I looked like her, not having to care about wearing shorts or going down to the beach.
Have you ever been through a journey faced with complications that lead you through frequent steps that can occasionally make you want to give up? I decided to do my capstone project on The Journey of Natural Hair, mainly focusing on the selections of afro-textured portions throughout my project. A journey of natural hair is a route you take along with your hair as you encounter different changes and ideas pertaining to your hair. The Natural hair journey technically starts when you are born because everyone is born with different varieties of natural hair. My reason for choosing such a topic is because it is something I can relate to. I have also experienced many of the common stages along my natural hair journey. This topic stands out to me and is something I enjoy talking and learning about. I understand that many aren’t able to self-experience a journey of natural curls which varies with race and background. Exposures to chemicals such as hair relaxers can permanently change the texture of the relaxed portion of hair. As I research further into my subject I hope to learn how certain things can manipulate the hair. I also seek to learn new things the journey has prepared as it continues step by step. I can achieve this by gaining more knowledge about natural/afro-textured hair through others experiences and studies on it.

You have actually been battling your natural hair appearance given that grade school-- specifically if you were born with curls if you're anything like me. From flat-irons to keratin treatments and numerous dollars worth of correcting serums, you have actually attempted it all and after experimentation, discovered your tailored trick to semi-smooth hair. Years into my charm editor profession, I had my anti-curly hair session down pat. I 'd get a blowout as soon as a week and do everything in my power making it last, even if that implied going and evading exercises through dry hair shampoo much faster than water. In reality, the majority of my colleagues believed I had straight hair. I did it due to the fact that I believed smooth hair made me look more expert-- and, well, prettier. Till one lazy day when I let my curls do their thing, and-- await it-- I got more compliments than I might count. Right here, how falling for my curls-- specifically throughout the summertime-- has actually streamlined my regular and enhanced my self-confidence.
Are you a coarse haired natural? I am and yes, I love my coarse hair. Do I ever get frustrated? Heck yeah. But after five years I’ve figured out how to take the good with the bad. Here’s my story.
The time is 7:00 AM. I need to take a quick shower to get ready to school, but who’s going to do my hair? During my childhood, my life was unfortunates. My mom was working all day,and coming home late. We lived in the same house, we shared the same bed, the same bathroom and the same plates, but there was no closed conception between both of us, in other words her life too busy to teach me what I was doing wrong like many parents did. Assuming to myself, how cruel was the world? because she never has time for me. That is to say I was a bird flying without stooping to look for a home that wo bring me love in attention. During my days before schools I constantly did my own hair, watching YouTube and creating my own style with a brush and Rabanne.
Michael DeSalvo is pacing from customer to phone to customer again when I walk through the front door of his beloved hair salon, Hairanoia, located in Syracuse, NY. He’s used to the hustle and bustle in his own little corner of the city; blowdryers and animated conversations all blend together in a loud, yet comfortable harmony. This could be any salon, but I know that it isn’t.
I had long, curly hair in elementary school and was very attached to it. My hair was how most people would identify me, but one day while my sister was babysitting I got lice from one of the children. After finding that out my mom was forced to shave my head. Many children were unimaginably cruel to me because I had to wrap my head in a bandana. While presenting in front of the class one day someone ran up and pulled it off my head; that incident brought on one of the most embarrassing times in my life. Having to deal with constant bullying started to turn me into a very angry person. Instead of crying when I was made fun of I would fight the person making fun of me. Having to deal with the constant torture from others at a young age made
