EXO Reaction: Playing with your long hair
A/N: so as I was doing ships, I was writing what Chen would do if you had long hair and I felt inspired. Arguably, this could also be titled ‘who in EXO can actually braid”.
Chanyeol: Chanyeol had been begging you to let him play with your hair and you’d finally agreed to let him. He swore he would make your hair look even prettier than usual. However, once he’d sat down behind you and tried to braid your hair like he’d seen you do a thousand times, he would realize it was A LOT harder than it looked. After about 45 minutes of struggling, he’d sit back with a small ‘tada’. You’d run your fingers through your hair and try not to laugh. It wasn’t really a braid so much as a bunch of loosely tied knots.
“Don’t laugh. It’s a great look on you!”
D.O.: Kyungsoo would have started playing with your hair as you were laying in bed. He’d begun to aimlessly run his hands through your hair, twirling the end of it around his fingers. He loved how soft it was and he loved running his fingers through it, tucking loose strands behind your ears.
“How do you get your hair to be so soft jagi?”
Sehun: Sehun would love to play with your hair. He’d attempt to braid it, though he’d claim it was going to be better than a normal braid. He’d basically just twist your hair together and when it turned out kinda sorta cool, he’d act like he knew what he was doing to whole time.
“See, I told you it’d be cool jagi.”
Baekhyun: Baek would randomly be twisting your hair when he was bored. You’d be watching T.V. with him, but he wouldn’t be too into the program. He’d zone out and keep twisting your hair. It was only when you laughed and brought him back to reality that he’d look down and see that he had completely knotted your hair.
“Jagi, you love me a lot right?”
“Baek, what did you do?”
“I made your hair a little, um, messy…”
He’d just grin sheepishly and apologize.
Lay: Lay would have been in love with your hair since day one. He would always look at it and finally you’d ask him if he wanted to try and braid it. He’d nod enthusiastically and carefully and slowly braid it. It would probably be a little lumpy, but it would resemble a braid very closely.
“Wah that was fun jagi!”
Xiumin: Xiumin would probably be sitting with you on couch with his arm around you and you snuggled into his
muscular chest. His fingers would be idly twirling the ends of your hair and occasionally he’d place a small kiss on the top of your head.
“Your hair is very nice jagi.”
You’d be the one to ask to play with his hair. You would ask if you could put his hair up into a tiny palm tree on the top of his head and he’d just look at you like “no, never ask me that again”.
Kai: Kai would know how to braid hair. He had awful corn rows once upon a time, so he’d know how to braid. He’d probably try different types of braids like a four strand braid or a fishtail. He would have looked up some tutorials just so he could make the braids look good too.
“I’m kind of like a pro at this Y/n.”
Suho: Suho would have wanted to try to put your hair in a ponytail for a long time. He was always fascinated when you put your hair up and wanted to try it for himself. He’d sat behind you, running his fingers through your hair and trying to smooth out any lumps. When he had it perfect, he carefully slipped an elastic around your hair and twisted it… only to create lumps in your once smooth ponytail. He’d try again and again to make it look good, and finally, after a lot of struggling, he’d achieve the perfect ponytail.
“How do you always manage to do this so well Y/N?”
“That must be it.”
Chen: You would be sitting reading a book and Chen would be perched behind you, playing with your hair. He most likely would have looked up videos on how to braid hair just to impress you with his braiding skills. You wouldn’t really have been paying attention to what he was doing, too engrossed in your book until Chen practically yelled, “Yes, yes, this looks so good what is life”. You’d be so confused until he showed you the lumpy braid and he would be so proud of it. You couldn’t help but smile since it was obvious he’d put a lot of effort into it and, honestly, it wasn’t that bad.
“This is the greatest braid to ever exist. I should be a hairstylist, honestly.”
Luhan: Luhan would be running his fingers through your hair as the two of you sat on the couch and watched a new kdrama. Your head would be on his stomach and he’d unintentionally be making you fall asleep by running his fingers through your hair. When he realized you were asleep, he’d stop playing with your hair and smile.
“Tsk, you’re going to miss the best part Y/N.”
Tao: Tao would swear he could braid your hair. He’d practically beg you to let him and you’d finally give in. He’d try his best, but when the braid didn’t really even look like a braid but more like a giant, loose knot, he would blame it on you.
“You were moving too much! That’s why it doesn’t look good!”
Kris: Kris would think he was going to do really good. However, the braid looked awful. He couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed. He’d start over about 30 times and on the 31st try, he’d finally manage to twist your hair into a pretty good braid.
“Nice job Galaxy.”
