How Should I Wear My Hair to My Graduation / UPDATE - Cap and Gown Picture with Straight Hair
So I'm a tad vain. I have my college graduation on Saturday, and I have no idea how to wear my hair.

I have naturally curly hair that, I've been told, is pretty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's thick and unruly.

When I straighten it, I liken to teasingly call it Jennifer Anniston hair. Don't I wish...

Anyhow, it always looks nice straight.

So, should I bother? I thought I could make a hair appt and let someone pamper me the day before and straighten it for me. It takes me over an hour to do on my own because it's so thick.

Or, should I go au natural (with clothes, of course...).

This is your day. Wear your hair however you feel most comfortable. Jennifer Aniston is gorgeous, in her own way, but obviously not everyone thought that - ahem - Brad.

Just be yourself, always. Never mind the 'trends' as they come and go but whatever you are will always be.

Have a wonderful, YOU day.

I said the Anniston thing is great jest...the first time I ever had my hair straightened (we're talking Chi straighteners here), I couldn't believe that my hair could get that straight. It was so pretty! Unlike what my hair usually looks like...kind of messy and free. Let's just say that I fit in quite well with the 80's look -- big hair.

Thanks for your sweet words...

Just my two cents, if you want to pamper yourself go for a manicure/pedicure and a new pair of shoes to show off the pedicure...I have no idea what you look like, but what I do know is that every time I try to "do" my hair for something special it looks great in the mirror and then I see the pictures and think - what was I thinking?

I agree with the manicure & pedicure thing. Also, if it's humid that day, will your straight hair go curly anyway? Perhaps what you need is a different hair style that'll accent your lovely curls.

(Or just send your wonderful curls to me & I'll be more than happy to let you have my straight lifeless hair.)

Whatever you do - congratulations!!! We're all very proud of you.

I vote for letting your hair be. Go pamper yourself with the manicure and pedicure.
It's funny how we of the straight hair would love to have all those curls while those with the curls envy our straight hair.

Curls (because when my hair started falling out the curls were the first ones to go).

I'm with the manicure, pedicure group.

It's always cracked me up that we will pay a lot of $$ for curly hair, and you'll pay $$ for straight hair like mine.

Whatever your hair is like, you'll be lovely and graduated!

I say go for it! And if you can get a mani/pedi do that too, you worked hard for this and you should pamper yourself (and maybe buy your self some more yarn too!).
