I'm not one of those naturals who forever swears off relaxers. Hair is like anything else, an accessory. I may, at some point in time, get another relaxer if the mood strikes. Sure, I love my natural hair, but I also am not totally opposed to getting a relaxer, either, though natural hair suits my lifestyle better; always has.
The style isn't original. It's a trademark style of Chicago TV anchor Val Warner and a similar style is worn by Tamron Hall. It's classic, chic and edgy at the same time. Technically, it's a pixie cut with longer sideburns.
Want this style so bad. But then I think of the maintenance it would take. I tried a short style -- once -- in 2006. It was high maintenance. And the same thing with this style. Maybe I'm just bored. Maybe I just need to do something different.
I had a severe trim a few months ago, cutting off about 3 inches (went from armpit length to shoulder length) because of damage ends. I don't have a problem cutting my hair but I like it much better when it's my choice.
So, that's why I'm contemplating a change. Do I just stick it out, suck it up and wait for my hair to grow out? Or just make a drastic change? My mind isn't made yet.
What do you do when you want to change up your style?
