It’s Just Hair….Right?

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries or the way she combs her hair.

~Audrey Hepburn

In high school my senior superlative was “prettiest hair”, being of a mixed ethnic background my hair is naturally curly. It doesn’t require a perm or relaxer, a blow dryer and flat iron will do just fine. Some may say I have “good hair” I prefer to say a diverse mixed texture. I have always heard my hair is my thing (whatever that means). I assume it’s because I have a nice length of hair that allows me to do just about any style. I can account for each time I have done something drastic to my hair, my freshman year I went with the fad of long in the back short in the top. That died out for me after ninth grade. After boot camp I dyed my hair a number of colors utimately altering my natural color permanently. In October 2005 I cut my hair for the first time in nearly 6 years, and not just a trim, my beautician used electric clippers. The photo I took her was Phoebe (Alyssa Milano during the 4th season of Charmed).  I believe that particular cut is called a Pixie Cut.


My mother nearly fainted when I showed up to her house that night. I wore my hair short for about a year and a half allowing it to grow back only to start the trend of shaved sides in early 2007.

Then I went white blonde for a couple years, not realizing the bleach was damaging my hair. At the end of the blonde bombshell era I needed a cut to remove all the dead hair.

I finally allowed my hair to grow back completely allowing me to rock my infamous “bun” and “gangsta braids”.


That was until I decided on a bob hairstyle about five months back. So here we are on August 3, 2013 and I have yet again made another drastic hair change. After all it’s just hair and it grows back, right?
