So I've gone, bitten the bullet and done the big chop. Now what do I do?
Every Friday when picking out my outfit for weekend drinks. Every Sunday choosing my office attire for the week. Any super-short-coifed naturalista knows the struggle to define her style on an ongoing basis while maintaining the fine balance between being too over-the-top on one hand and being outright mistaken for a man on the other.
Okay, not a lot of people are like me - many people love the thought of spending an entire day (sometimes two!) in the hair salon between the shampoo basin and the stylist chair. "I love sitting in the stylist chair for eight hours at a time!", said no one I know, like ever.
Whether you've got kinks, curls, or coils, as long as you sport anything longer than a fade, I know you've been through this one.
This confession is borne from the mind when it (and the body) is pressed for the time needed to maintain natural hair and sometimes the pressures of society that still - despite many role models and media figures that show us otherwise - tends to push the notion that straight hair is superior.
