Vacation Hairstyle Ideas
Q: I'm going on a cruise and want a hairstyle that will be low maintenace and look good.
I have a almost shoulder length boob.
Should I get a sew in and if so what kind?
A: Hi There. When you're deciding on a hassle free hairstyle you really need to think about what purpose you want it to serve and what kind of activities you're planning for your vacation.
If you're going to be doing a lot of swimming, a weave will NOT be a care free hairstyle because water can and will ruin certain weave styles fast.
You'll have to think about how much time you're willing to devote to restyling your hair after every dip in the pool/sea.
It can be horrible news if the hair under your weave stays wet or damp for long period of time and it will weaken your hair badly.
For these reasons the official number one holiday hairstyle for many black women is braids.
Whether you get afro twists, cornrows or single braids they are totally "hands off" style free, easy to wash and dry and always looking good.
If on the other hand you're not going to be doing much swimming and just want to lay out ant look pretty, I'd go with a simple glue in with straight hair to add length and extra style, or a full head sew in with curly hair for a breezy and cute maintenance free look.
At the end of the day the choice is yours based on what you like, what you can afford and what your final goals for the function of the style are.
Hope this helps.
