Sisterlocks hairstyle possibilities for long hair

I see a hat I like. 

Try it on.

9 times out of 10 - it doesn't fit. 

Looks like a toy sitting atop my head.

Story of my life.

I'm forever complaining about the size of my head and how I can never find hats to fit.
It has been suggested to me on more than one ocassion that the culprit might likely be the tons of hair on my head and not so much my head  per se (although my head is definitely larger than average) but at any rate, wearing hats has been a chore.

I can also say that in the 14 years that I have been wearing my hair in sisterlocks I have NEVER worn it completely down. Nope, NEVER! My hair has consisitently been pulled back in one or a series of ponytails or twist overs. For photos I throw it over my shoulder but most of the time you can only see it from the back. There are many reasons for this and most of them stem from the fact that when I wear it down it is a whole lot of hair for a black girl in corporate America. And let's face it, 14 years ago it would not have been acceptable. So I got used to pulling it back and up.

But it's now 2015 and in a few months I will be 65 and signing up for medicare. And soon after that... I will be enjoying retirement!

So, if not now....when?

This weekend I spent some time at the boyfriend's house. None of the electronics were working properly (he doesn't watch TV) and he was in his office working. Me and the girls were left to entertain ourselves. So, I decided to do some photos featuring some of my hats.

I had also just washed my hair and had braided it to dry, so the plan was to shwo the hats as Iwaer them as a cover while my hair dries.

The next day as I took my hair out of the braids and just let it hang loose. It was then that I got the idea of seeing what the hats would like - seriously that idea never occurred to me in th past.

I popped on a hat and snapped some pics.

What a difference flat hair makes!

I was having such a good time taking photos and posing for photos the boyfriend took that  we ended up with a lot of photos. However, if you know anything about photo shoots you end up taking a ton of pictures to end up with enough good ones to feature.

So I think I have enough to feature a different hat every day this week.

Hope you'll stop by and check me out. And feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think about my new haird o possibility!

Oh and as usual the dogs just love the photo shoots

this is the same hat
big difference huh?

Do you see TWO different hats in this photo. 
If your answer is yes, you are correct
My boyfriend thought there was only one and thought I should point it out
(thanks babe) 

It's all about change
