Sydney Poitier . . . Can you say "beautiful?!

I I absolutely love Sydney Poitier's hair. This is the look I am hoping to sport in another couple of years. One can but pray.

I'm a prayer too.

It's gorgeous, and so is she!

My whole life, until I saw that picture, I thought Sydney Poitier was a man. My SO laughs at me because I have a huge lack of pop culture knowledge. Guess he's right!

She does have beautiful hair though.
Not Cindy or Sindy or Syndey or any other such abomination.
It's Sydney, like Australia.

I loved that movie! I think Sidney is that dad and Sydney is the daughter.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

I love Sydney's hair.. just gorgeous. I also like how she looks just like her awesome Daddy!
I didn't realize that her father and she had the same name. I knew the thread was about her before I opened it, but I thought the title was a typo. LOL
