great hair and a supercilious look

My sister-in-law Jess did my hair the other night.  She did kind of a back-and-forth waterfall braid and then twisted up the end and clipped it with a small clip.  I couldn’t believe it when she showed me these pictures of the back of my head.  It looks so complicated and romantic!

And then I saw this picture:

What kind of face is that?!  It looks like I’m judging the whole world, wrinkling up my nose at it!  I didn’t know Jess was taking this picture.  Does that mean this my “default” face, the expression I go to when I’m relaxed and quiet?  If so… yikes.  I know I wasn’t thinking judgmental and supercilious thoughts right then (or at least I try to un-think them when I do think them!) but it sure looks like I am mentally sneering at something.  

Have you ever looked at a candid shot of yourself and balked at your expression?  Not sure what to do about this problem.  Smile all the time?!

    Hahaha. Not laughing at your expense. I promise. I cringe at photos of myself on the regular. Apparently I would make a bad poker player!

    That braid is awesome! Candid shots of me are almost always terrible. I just look goofy, I guess. haha!

    I think my “regular” face is hideous too, I’m so glad I’m not the only one who feels that way about herself! LOL

    Oh my goodness, this hair! I love it! My hair is way too short for it now but once it grows out again I’ll definitely have to try and mimic this!
    And I don’t think your face looks bad at all! I think you look serious, but not judgmental or anything!
    We are our own worst critics!
