S-Waves + Borrowing From Ninjas

Recently there was a video trending that demonstrated how to get a "S-Wave" using only a straightening iron on your hair. Once  watched it, I instantly ran to the bathroom to try it out and realized my s-waves looked more like limp, half-curled pieces of heat-damaged hair. So I gave it up and decided the woman demonstrating in the video was definitely a witch and there was no way this was possible within the time allotted.

But then this morning, I was determined to get it, if it was the last thing I did. So for one entire, too-painful hour, I went strand by strand, making decent attempts at these s-waves, all the while thinking and repeating to myself, "This is a productive use of my time as a valued member of society."

And then because I some what succeeded, I got ahead of myself and whipped out a black ninja headband I got from a ninja-themed restaurant and wore it as a choker. BECAUSE ANYTHING CAN BE EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
