Dear Emmi: Is it just me or do curly haired people group together? Seriously everyone I sit with at lunch has wavy, curly or kinky hair and plus most of my friends have curly hair. Maybe it's just me.

A: No, they don’t always do that. Almost all of my friends have straight hair, and they still hang out with me. Hair doesn’t really matter in the friendship world. What really matters is how you act. Your friends won’t understand you or like you better just because your hair is different (well, most likely not). Just look around—you’ll see plenty of curly people hanging with straight haired people.
