Bored with your locs? Try a fresh cut and color

Last year, I let a stylist near my hair with scissors for the first since I started on my natural hair journey in 2002. My award-winning natural hair needed a makeover. I had layers cut into my hair, the longest being shoulder length, which was a refreshing but not very dramatic. It didn’t feel or look like much of a change.

A change has come.

I decided to go with my first mind and truly get a hair cut. If I’m gonna cut it, CUT IT. It turned out as good as I imagined. I took it back to ’94, eighth-grade graduation. Only difference is my hair was straight then. It’s a ‘Sandria’ hairstyle, indeed — fun, colorful, cohesively indecisive, fly and can be futuristic or classic depending on how I want to style it.

I think I’ll have fun with this for awhile…until I miss my ponytail, LOL. Enjoy the pics (Note: Please forgive the bad camera phone bathroom shots. My front-facing camera stopped working after I dropped my phone in the toilet last summer). Shout out to Alma over at Misunderstood Natural Hair for the great cut and color.

    Thank you very much, kodak! It's grown out so much since my post; time to think about cutting it again!
