New Look for Spring!!!
It's spring time, so you know what that means. It's time to switch up the hair and do something new for the 99 and the 2000. No but seriously, if you know me then you know that I love changing my hair. I was over the protective styles and the weave and decided that this go round, I I wanted to do something drastic to my real hair. After looking all over Pintrest and Instagram I decided to get a tapered type cut.
I can't like I was uber nervous at first. I mean it's no secret my head is BIG. So I was worried that my head was going to look even bigger or my face would look fat. But then I remembered, you only live once! So, after much deliberation with myself, I booked my hair appointment!
Thanks to social media, I was able to come across this amazing stylist based out of Charlotte who specializes in natural healthy hair. Her name is Shanelleh and you can search her hashtag on insta #QuenchedbySH. The thing that I loved the most about her was that she informed me on what she was doing throughout the entire process. She told me about the products that she was using and educated me on things to do to keep my hair healthy. I loved how personable she was and her conversations was so fun! I highly recommend her if you are in the area and looking for a natural hair guru. She is lit!
The initial shock of cutting my hair has completely gone away and I am definitely owning it. The maintenance is pretty simple, which I love. I only have to twist the top part instead of my entire head now #win; which cuts my two strand twist down by like 20 minutes. The only downside I would say I am experiencing currently is that I feel compelled to always have a "light beat" on my face every time I leave the house. Being that my hair is short, I don't want to come across too rough around the edges. But, I'm sure after a month of daily "light beats", I'll be over it.
Overall, I will have to say that I am happy with the decision I made to cut my hair. While I was super nervous at first, the end results were fiah (as members of the chosen few would say). I say all that to say, if you're thinking of doing something new to your hair for the season, DO IT! Remember it is only hair and it will definitely grow back!
