This new student’s hair was exquisitely styled for her very first day of school in the state of Louisiana. But by the end of that schoolday in August 2017, her fancy hair-do was a hair-don’t. The new girl had made a mess of her perfectly braided hair, leaving her mother confused and annoyed. Yet people all around the world saw the pictures of the hair wreck on social media and it left them laughing affectionately at the lovable little girl.
Markeisha Simien is a single mother who lives in the city of Lake Charles in southwest Louisiana. There, the 29-year-old raises her two children, five-year-old Charle-feigh – known as Little Her – and 12-year-old Charavian – aka Little Him. Together her children are Simien’s Little Them, and it is more than evident from the mom’s effusive Facebook posts about the pair that they are her whole world.
Simien spends a lot of time researching new hair-dos for her daughter and mini model Charle-feigh. Then the hairstyling enthusiast tries out these new braids in little girl’s hair. Each style is usually complimented by a bow – or two. Most of the time these accessories not only bring the hairstyle together but tie up the whole look. Sometimes they match the cutie’s colorful striped socks or add a pop of color to an outfit. Simien’s aim is that her youngest should look good and feel good.
