"Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit."

Updo #3 : Braided..halo?
Okay, so it’s not technically an ‘updo’, but I really love this look. Plus, it was super easy! I don’t quite know what to call it except a bastardized halo, lol. At first, I was calling it a braided crown, but “crowns” usually involve braiding in all the hair. With this look, I just wrapped extensions into a halo around my head. It’s almost like a braided headband…actually, it’s exactly like a braided headband. I’m sure there is a specific natural hair community name for this ‘do. Whatever you want to call it, this look makes everyone feel regal! And of course you can add your own twist to the look by braiding the rest of your hair or putting it in a sleek bun. I just let my second day curls be wild :)
Best On: All hair types and lengths. 
What You’ll Need: Kanakelon  25” hair (or a type close to your natural pattern), headband (I LOVE these mesh ones from Kmart because they are tight enough to hold my hair back without any slip), extra long bobby pins and tiny rubber bands.

Great For: Everyday.
Steps (pictured below):

Synthetic hair usually comes with its own rubber band tied in the middle of the hair. Braid the hair down on each side of the  rubber band so you have two braids. Tie the ends with rubber bands. 
(Optional) I wear a headband underneath my crown just because it seems to make it easier to put the braid crown in by holding my hair back. You don’t necessarily have to do this step.
Pin one braided side to the nape of your neck, underneath your hair. 
Then, simply wrap the braid around as many times as it can go. My hair made two perfect wraps around my head. And pin it underneath.
Easy peezy! And of course, feel free to play around and adjust as you see fit. Cut the hair, make one braid across, bun the rest of your curls, etc.! Have fun!
