My Story

Long hair, short hair, strong hair, thin hair, wavy hair, straight hair, curly hair. Everyone wants what they do not have. All my life I have been trying to find what is missing in me, looking to see what beauty product makes me feel better about myself. I spend hundreds of dollars per year just to try and satisfy my own needs when what it's really about is what you make of yourself. You need to change your attitude and be more positive about your appearance. Heavy or thin, whom who carries themselves with pride will succeed.

I used to believe that buying hair extensions made you fake and act like you are trying to be someone else. I never really followed my own heart and what I wanted to look like. I just chose to look like everyone else. The popular girl would chop off her hair, so I would too. But deep down, I have always admired people with really long hair. I never listened to my own voice and wore what I wanted to wear. The negative opinions filled my head with doubt and sorrow when I attempted to be myself.

This year, my New Year's Resolution is to find myself. I have been working on it every day for the past few months. I now do not care what other people think about me and I am starting to eat in public and I am feeling great. I am wearing what I want to wear and I notice now I am starting to set trends. I have always been a fan of retro makeup (bright red lipstick, pin-curls, etc.) I also love wearing bows in my hair. I wore a flowered headband with a bow on it to school and realized 15 other girls were wore similar things the next day. It made me laugh because I use to be that girl and now I am the trend setter. People are now looking up to me and asking me where I got my ideas from and I told them to just listen to their hearts and present yourself as you wish.

Now that I have mostly achieved my goal, one of the last things I have wanted for myself is to have long hair. For the past year, I have been trying to grow out my hair but it grows incredibly slow. By the time it grows two inches, the ends are split and need to be trimmed. I have decided to buy extensions from Pro Extensions. I do not care what anyone else thinks and I am going to have long hair whether they like it or not! Hair is amazing in so many different ways. It allows people to express themselves. It shows their nationality, culture and personality.

Everyone has beautiful hair. Extensions are an amazing way to add length and volume and I am so excited to be wearing them. I hope everyone else can realize that being yourself is the best way to go and people will love you for that. Follow your heart and be who you want to be. Embrace your features and make them stand out.
