As of yesterday, I see why women cut all their hair off after having kids. My kids pulled, tugged and yanked my poor little strands to smithereens. Not even a bun could save me from the wrath of their tiny, yet surprisingly strong fingers.
I cut my hair once, back in 2007, but I wasn’t natural, which meant I was straightening my cute little pixy bob every 3-4 days (I don’t wish that life on anybody).
Flash forward to today, I’m natural and I’ve been digging my natural curl pattern something serious, having loads of fun exploring new natural hairstyles. Its a bit addicting…
Even though I love my longer hair, at times I want to run off to my local barber and dabble in that “natural tapered life”…
These ladies are SERVING LIFE with this short hair and I’ve been searching Pinterest boards every other day trying to find the perfect tapered hairstyles that might persuade me to do a big chop. Check out THIS BOARD out by @SushiiMa. Her natural tapered board is one of my favorites!
For me, there’s so much more than just the cut. Your face needs to be the right shape. The texture of your hair must be appropriate. You have to know what your side profile would look with a cut like this. If there was a way to wear this style in a weave first, I would do it just to see what I would look like before I made the big chop [update — I ended up trying it]. I’m putting way too much into this, huh?!?!
I’m tired of my kids abusing my hair but I’m going to have to shelve this look, for now. I LOVE it but…I’m just not ready!
