Graduation Cap Struggle

TakniiTaknii Posts: 25Registered Users
Sooo my high school graduation is in a week and man, I'm getting so much anxiety about my hair.
I'm rocking this awkward length, kinda tapered hair. And I usually do a flexi-rod/perm rod set as a style. It's just too big omg. Idk how I should put it on my head?? What do you think?
I absolutely refuse to let my mom make me put heat on my hair again. :lovestory:

    Ugh, graduation caps! Technically, the cap is supposed to go down over your forehead, so anything that has curl or wave at the roots is probably not going to work. Could you do some kind of beachy wave thing, with ringlets just at the bottom, and a flatter top? If it were me, I would probably try to pull my hair back (or pin it back somehow, if not long enough) so that the style in general is sleeker and wouldn't be affected as much by the cap.

    I feel your pain.

    I've seen people cut the cloth cap part and mount the board on a headband. No one will know the difference!
