3. Don’t touch the goods – This leads to one of the number one offenses, please please don’t just stick your hands in someone’s hair without asking permission. I know it looks strange, you haven’t seen anything like that before, and maybe it’s fascinating to look at and you wonder if you could feel the same sensations with your fingers. But don’t do it! It’s rude! Always ask someone before just tugging on the hair or trying to rake through the curls with your five fingers. This rule can be applied across the board, whether hair is curly, straight or wavy, just don’t do it.
4. Your work is Their disaster – It’s the middle of the week and before bed you may decide, ‘I’m going to look fly tomorrow’ and you want to do a wicked wet set, twists, braids, the works. You decide you want to start early in the evening because you need to wash your hair, detangle it, oil it and finally set it with a million twists before bed because ‘your gonna do a twist out for work and ‘nobody gonna be able to tell you nothing.’ The following day your hair is dry you release all your twists, you spray, you fluff, you got the pencil skirt, the heels and the little 69.99 blazer you just bought at Forever 21 and you are ready to meet the world. Finally at work settled in looking over your paperwork checking the mirror every now and then when some dufus comes to your desk and says ‘Girl, were you late? I see you didn’t have time to do your hair this morning’ REALLY?? ‘So because I don’t have a traditional boring bun, I didn’t do my hair!?’ Suppress the need to be critical and appreciate the art that is the twist out, or just keep your mouth shut. There is room in this world for all of us even the curly heads, we just have to school em! (smile)
If you had a chance to create a curly Girl etiquette pamphlet what would you put in it?
