Yeeeeep. I am very very thankful for short hair. Just a month after I had Elle, I cut off my long locs. I expected to miss them and mourn over them but I haven’t yet. Because I am that in love with short natural hair. I’ve cut my hair many times but it has never been this short and I’m still trying to figure out what took me this long to jump on the short hurr bandwagon.
And I’d stay on that bandwagon if I could find someone to maintain my hair cut. That’s the part about short hair people don’t tell you. You have to find a good stylist or barber to maintain the look and the guy that gave me this fierce cut is now gone in the wind. And every other barber after him weren’t nearly as good. Including Esposo, who I asked to give me a hair cut.
And so I’m growing my hair out again because I’m not the type to be so heavily dependent on others to do my hair. But I will never forget the awesomeness that is short hair. And the confidence that it gave me.
