Grad Styles

Haven't been here in a long time but I have a question. I am graduating in a couple weeks and starting to think about styles for my hair. I tried on my cap with my hair as is but that just won't work so I was wondering if there is anything you all my recommend of getting my hair to lay somewhat flat or just any cute style so that my cap will fit on top of. Anything without heat being applied to my hair would be a plus. :-)

I didn't like the suggested styles, any other hairstyles to look at?
I BC'd after 1 year of transisitioning a few weeks before my HS graduation. My TWA wouldn't fit under my cap so I just blow-dried it into a fluffy afro. I know you said no heat would be the best option for you but that's all I could think of...and frankly I didn't really care for those styles either.

It's sad but when graduation attire was being created, I don't think they really had "us" in mind

I've been wondering the same thing myself. Do you have enough hair to pin it back in a french twist?

I think I'm just going to carry bobby pins to pin my cap on.

Hi,
I asked a similar question on this thread a few months ago: Graduation Hair Advice

Some ppl suggested heat styling (which I don't have a problem with; just wasn't what I was going for on such a hectic day). Some, also suggested low buns/puffs. If you have enough hair to do a low bun/puff, it may turn out nice. Maybe practice different styles beforehand, to see how they look with the cap.

And YES--whatever style you decide on--please do bring bobby pins! You will need them to keep the cap on and even. Thankfully, in our robing room they had someone there with a package of bobby pins and safety pins...

Good luck, and congratulations to both of you who are graduating (ASLGeek & projectdanielle)!

I went back and looked at my graduation pics and all the ladies I knew then with natural hair, straightened it...even though most ended up in a ponytail...

But I was thinking a low bun or puff...can't really go wrong....plus if you hair is really short you can still make a (faux) puff...just make sure you have gel and a scarf to hold it down until it drys a bit (no one will ever know)...

On graduation day I flat ironed my hair but it had rained over night by the time I got to graduation my hair was puffy and a hot mess. I ended up buying a sample thing of gel and pulling it into a bun.

I think a cute style would be spriral curls with flexi rods or a satin braid out so you get the wave look.

No matter which way you go be sure to be mindful of your hair when you order your cap. My cap was so tight it was a good thing I wore the bun because it was to tight for my natural hair.

Congrats on finishing!
