“Beautiful hair is a woman’s crowning glory”
I’m a chameleon when it comes to rocking hairstyles. From long to short, or red to black (still haven’t done blonde yet!), I love to switch it up! Because my hair is chemical-free, warm weather tends to draw/curl it up (spongebobesque). So I tend to rock extensions in the Summer, and my own hair in the Fall/Winter. With all the hairstyles I’ve tried, very few have I fallen in love with. Until now.
Earlier this year, I talked about my fascination with box braids. And after rocking them for almost 2 months now, I’ve fallen madly in love with them! I’m pretty close to claiming the look as one of my “signature” styles.
A few tips on finding your “signature” style.
- Think about what makes you feel your most confident. Is it long or short hair? Think about how it makes you feel when you wear the style. Confident? Carefree? Alluring?
- Determine how much time you’re willing to spend on your hair every morning. For me, 15 minutes is the maximum amount of time I’ll spend on my hair before rushing off to work. Box braids are perfect for my get up and go morning routine.
- Factor in your need for versatility. If you get bored easily, cutting your hair short or getting locs probably isn’t for you. If you’re OK with complacency, going for a more permanent style shouldn’t be a problem for you.
