“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”-Coco Chanel.
I asked my friends, Angie and Vai to elucidate on Coco’s quote but before we get into it; Allow me to warmly welcome you if you’re on newbie here!
Well, today you are special on this blog if you’re prospecting to cut your hair short or currently rocking a tinny winny afro.Usually, females cut their hair when transitioning from relaxed to natural(the big chop) but sometimes, if not most, some of us enjoy the look.Look at Vai for example.
What’s stopping you from following your hair adventures?See below what happened when Angie and Vai said yes to these adventures.
The look is versatile, edgy, quite classic if I must confess I have crushed on Janet’s (The First Lady of Uganda, yes we are on a first name basis because I am going to be First Lady pretty soon; from my mouth to the universe’s ears.) Her cut has been a mane crush for a while.In fact, we’ll delve into it, during the upcoming #fortheculture series.(Spoiler alert)
Sometimes, your inner Chanel may tempt you to say how your head shape doesn’t work for tinny afros or with short hair.Guess what, as the cliche is this may sound, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take. The fear won’t stop talking.I say feel the fear and do it anyway.
I wish I knew all this in my first year being natural, I would have flaunted my fro with confidence the size of Africa.Here’s what I would do differently.
Bantu knot your hair and let my edges slay.
Try some color splash.There is an upcoming post on what they don’t tell you about coloring your hair.(stay tuned)
I could have tried a tapered cut or side shave.
The wash and go style looks bomb diggy bomb on short hair.
Even the hairbrush with a defined curl pattern or leave it coily.
Have you cut your hair recently, what has your journey been like?Share with me below in the comment section.
Blessings and Bliss,
