I’m at a hair crossroads. Again. [Always?]

At the end of the last year, I found a picture of yours truly in Essence.com’s slideshow of the Top 50 Natural Hair Styles of 2012 and I was all “Gosh! Really!?!?! Me?! And Lola?? Awesome.”


But of course, the whole thing sent me into a fit of uncertainty. That style is now sooooooo 2012. It’s now 2013! And I need a style that is sooooooo 2013, right? I’m mainly kidding about that. I love this cut, but you know me—I #cantstopwontstop changing it up!

I just have no idea what my next style should be.

Should I keep with the same style and grow out the top more?


Or grow it long again?

Or maybe even go even shorter than I ever have before?



Please, let me know your thoughts…I’m very much open to suggestions over here.

  1. Happy New Year! Love the new update to the site :) I think you could stick with the fly ‘do you have and just grow it out more on the top OR if you wanna go for a BIG change….cut it low like the picture you have of Solange that one is super cute!

  2. Shave it!

  3. It’s funny that you posted this today b/c I was just thinking the same thing about my hair. I am leaning towards going even shorter :-)

  4. I agree with Mamajesty…shave it all off! Full disclosure: I’m a scissors addict who recently hacked off all but 3 inches of my hair and think TWAs look gorgeous on everyone so I have a definite short hair bias. But, I think since you’ve rocked the long do and the short funky cut it might be fun to try something new and go for the super short look. Plus there are hardly any super short natural hair bloggers so you’d be filling a void in the online natural hair community.

    BTW, I love your blog and how much fun you have with Lola…it’s nice to read a hair blog where the primary goal is not just to grow long hair. Not that there’s anything wrong with that but I just think it gets old after a while. Also, your post about your bike accident is what got me to start wearing a helmet on a regular basis so thanks for that! :)

  5. I love the style u have now. I say grow the top longer. Maybe change the color?

  6. I love the cut you have now. I am thinking about cutting mine too.

  7. solange cut…that’s sexy and bold

  8. u know how i feel about hair PUH!!! i’d grab scissors for my amber rose cut QUICK hunty!! it’s just hair n it’ll grow back!!

  9. I like your current hairstyle. You’ re young and hip so super short would be cute on you. I”m rather bored w my hair-always kept it cut before I went back to natural- and I keep looking at short cuts for myself.

  10. Shave it! Your texture is gorgeous. I’ love to see it truly pop.

  11. Ive been thinking about cutting my hair again to I love the cuts that u get so I kinda stole Ur first one now I want my sides cut low again
