Today, Sistah-Gurlfriend Angelista breaks it down on BW hair. To cut or not? To perm or not? To extension or not? To wig or not? Take your pic DR. Being a BW is hard, expensive and painful work. Beauty is pain, right?
Angelista asks should I cut my hair? Well, I did it ten years ago and have never looked back (except in the occasional dream where my hair grows luxuriously long over night). I save so much money and time (SuperCuts & Fantastic Sam's are a short haired girl's best friend!). And, big plus here, I don't care if it's raining or foggy outside. I simply walk right into. As a matter of fact, sometimes I purposely go without a hat, just so I can have the rain and wind in my face -- and without a care in the world, except maybe catching a cold.
However, I will admit that many men have a difficult time accepting short haired ladies. Whatever... Can stop to wait for those babies to grow up, now can we?
After about three years of hair liberation, I discovered wigs. Yes, WIGS. BW and WW wore them all in the time in the 60s & early 70s. I have blond ones, brown ones, black ones, long ones, short ones and medium ones. I adore it. I can change my look at the drop of a hat.... literally. I actually can grow a mane of whatever color hair I wish in the span of 30 seconds. And the best part? The cost! The new synthetic wigs run anywhere from $30-$65 and with care, can last about a year or so. I call that recession-proof thinking; when you don't have money for the beauty parlor, just reach on that closet and whip out, voila, a stunning look for whatever challenge the day holds.
So, I say ladies, free yourself from the tyranny of the hair care industry. Cut it off and give yourself choices!
Here I am today - sporting one of my newest acquisitions - one that even MC commented on. Whaddya think?
