So I've been meaning to ask this question for a while now.  In the past year or so I have begun my own lil experiment.  Prior to this I would strive for every day to be a perfect lf day.  By perfect I am referring to styling only NOT application, because an off application day is no good LOL despite the fact that we all have them.  Out of curiosity do you all style your LFs so that it appears that you have stepped out of the salon every day?  I used to.  I would wake up in the morning do my flat ironing routine and bump the ends and apply a bit of serum and comb out with a wide tooth com.  I mean I looked like I had a fresh roller set or blow out EVERY day.  People often came up to me and gave me compliments but then I started getting a little too much attention ie stares from folks who would see me on regular basis.  That's when I decided to switch it up and have the casual pseudo messy hair day.   Days when all I did was do my diagonal part tuck behind one ear but didn't bother to flat iron or curl the ends.  I think it adds to realism.  When I wore my own hair out there was  a time where I wore weekly roller sets but they didnt have that fresh look for the entire week maybe 3-4 days max.  I'm also trying to incorporate a half up half down look where I have half of the hair in a messy ponytail bun which looks more natural then when I try to put all of it in a ponytail.  Today for instance my hair is what I would consider not done.  I literally ran a wide tooth comb through it and put on a beret but I made sure the beret was pulled up so you could see my "scalp" in my part.  I go to purchase something at the local CVS and the cashier is telling me how pretty my hair is.  I'm like Confused it's not even done!!! Anywho what do you all do?  Perfect hair day everyday?

*** As a disclaimer I think I can also get away with these lil planned messy hair days since I'm in grad school and no one expects my hair to be on point 24/7. LOL***

nope.  i wear 28inches so i do a bun, a braid or a pony during the week.  I might spice it up with pretty pins.....oh and i might do a chinese bun with pretty hair sticks.  i have to be in the mood to roll it up for curls.

I do the same ... I don't style my her everyday, some days I wear a messy pony tail or bun, half up half down ... funny thing is that's when I get the most compliments on my hair to ... not so much on how good it looks but more so on how long and healthy it is LOL

I concur.  I get the MOST compliments when I pull my curly wig back or pile it on top of my head in a messy, tousled bun.  People tell me how pretty I look with my hair up, or just how cute I look.  It is amazing!!

yup ladies.  I sometimes think when you have your hair hype styled everyday is what can make it look like it's not yours.  What female u know with naturally long hair has their stuff done every day?

I would have to agree, although I don't get compliments I do like my image better when it's sloppily pulled up in a bun.
