I wanted to try again to draw a girl, this time with a plait. I added a red bow as I loved wearing ribbons in my hair when I was young and had long hair (and scrunchies – it was the 80’s/early 90’s!) These are two of my favourite hairstyles for long hair. In my dreams, when I am healthy, I have long hair (I had to have my waist-length hair cut off aged 14 due to the pain it caused with Fibromyalgia. Even tying shorter hair back or wearing a headband hurts – to this day, so I have had very short hair since.) I love long hair and I associate it with my childhood – a happy time when I was healthier.
