The short hair trend: Yay! or Nay
Black ladies often have a challenge with cutting their hair short, and justifiably so, we know there’s the struggle of thinking through so many questions: do I have the right shape of head to carry this look? Then there’s the fear that it has taken you a good number of years to grow your hair into the length that it is now, how much time will it take to grow back? Then there’s the ultimate question “how can I braid on short hair. Long Sigh, the struggle is actually very real and we are not here to scare you out of your pants but to open your mind up to see beyond the fear and take that bold step.
Looking to carry a short hair do? Well, good news, you do not have to cut your hair, there’s the option of wigs. As a matter of fact, people barely have time to sit and go through the time wasting process of hair making, especially when you black and have thick, unyielding hair, we just see a wig we like, order for it to get styled and voila!, you’re good to go. We’ll be sharing with you why we think the short hair trend is here to stay and why we feel you should join the train.
First off, short hair is always in style. It never gets boring, the key to rocking this trend is to find a cut that suits the shape of your face and stick to wearing it in different ways. If you have black hair and you’re not one to take risks then you could visit a hair place, pick a weave you feel would suit the style or have the salesperson recommend one for you, then take it to a hairstylist (A skilled one of course, to avoid damaging your weave) to have it made into a wig, describing the cut you have in mind. As simple as that is, that’s all it takes to get hooked!
Deciding to go short (either with your natural hair or through a weave) changes your entire look and is an entire fashion statement on its own. It also takes you years back in time. Makes for a younger look and stands out from the crowd.
Looking to switch things up? Or bored of the same old look? then short is the way to go. It’s badass and so much cooler than your regular hairdo and more so, there really is more to gain than to lose going this path. Be bold!
