I can remember my first haircut like it was yesterday. I was in the third grade, and the mushroom style was rocking. It was the Ahh Push It movement and my young aunts and cousins were buying the hype. My stylish mother took to this to heart and figured it was time for me to get the brilliant cut.
During my high school and my college years, I stuck with what I knew and kept my hair very low maintenance. The style was remanent of an adult mushroom missing the stem.
When I got older, I begin to style my hair in a middle-age-don't-know-what-to-do-with-it-older-than-I-look-way. I think it ran the young men off and attracted a lot of older guys since it aged me by five plus years.
At times I dabbled into weaves, wigs, and extensions but it never lasted long. I hated having limited access to my scalp, not being able to wash it as much as I liked and the tremendous a fear of losing my edges didn't help either. I recall talking to my edges nightly hoping they wouldn't disappear. However it happened but not as bad as Tamar or Naomi.
When my money game was up I took it upon myself to go to a salon. The stylist, Tiffany, was amazing! She started on time, didn't over book, treated me to champaign, and my hair looked amazing. In and out in a jiffy. The only problem, Tiffany rates were $165 for a wash. That got old real fast.
Recently I decided that is time for me to find a new way of doing my hair that satisfies my need to be comfortable with it without breaking my bank. To help with new styling techniques, I turned to YouTube. I begin to watch videos for curling and styling short to medium relaxed hair. The ultimate goal is to give my hair a chance to grow by avoiding the cutting itch.
Learning new hairstyles on YouTube has given me the confidence to finally grow my hair out and be comfortable with the look. I no longer feel the need to get it cut. I got this, and I have received several compliments! Here is a video to show you how to do it.
big hair, don't Care
Yep, that's my big hair! The haircut initiated the beginning of me always wanting to get my haircut and my love of really big Texas hair.
In high school I was predictable as usual. Same style with more oil and less poof.
I've always loved the 80's hairstyles and the politician look. Can you tell?
My short love affair with sew ins.
