Charle-feigh’s new school enforces a uniform policy, but, nevertheless, her mother wanted to give her a way to show her unique style. On the Sunday evening before her daughter’s first day at kindergarten, Simien braided Charle-feigh’s hair perfectly. Even topping it with a red bow, to help her little girl stand out in the school yard and feel confident on her debut in class. The style took Simien about 45 minutes to complete, but the time spent was worth it because the little girl’s ’do was supposed to last several days. But this was to prove wildly optimistic on mom’s part.
On the morning of August 21, 2017, Charle-feigh was on fleek as her mom took photos of her daughter’s first day of kindergarten. The new student proudly wore her uniform of a beige, pleated dress over a white blouse. But what really took pride of place was a red hair bow to match her red school tie. The little girl’s look was perfect. So Simien left Charle-feigh at school, no doubt looking forward to picking her up and hearing about all the day’s excitement.
At 3:30 p.m. Simien returned to the school to collect her little girl. When her daughter climbed into the car after her kindergarten adventure, her mother was truly shocked by the state of her hair. Charle-feigh’s perfect ’do was no more. In its place was a style that certainly did not resemble the sophisticated one Simien had worked so painstakingly to create.
