I’ve chopped off my hair. Literally.
From my shoulders to where you see it. All gone.
I’ve been tossing around the idea of going natural (where I don’t chemically treat my roots to straighten them) for a year. My laziness when it comes to good hair care is damn near legendary and I like what I see of the natural movement.
The thing is I’m not doing this because of some innate need to get reacquainted with my heritage. Shedding the behaviors of the white man and getting back to me roots? No, not at all. I’ve grown up in a predominantly white area since I was 9, I like being a black girl, but don’t feel this incredible urge to identify or reconnect.
I’m lazy. Period. That’s it.
That’s why I’m trying natural. That’s why I cut it all off. That’s why I’m probably going to keep it short for a while. Because having long, treated hair takes work. You have to keep it healthy and do something with it other than putting it up in a clip. So I cut it short, dyed it light brown and am going to grow it out for a while. Maybe rock a teeny-weeny Afro.
I’m talking (or whatever it is we’re doing) with a white guy who is all about natural hair. He didn’t influence my decision, but when I saw him earlier I found his enthusiasm catching. That and the fact that he complimented me on my ass. Thanks, you.
My hairdresser said it doesn’t matter how short it is as long as you carry yourself with confidence. It’s still feminine and sexy. So, I’m a bad bitch with my new do. I’ll rock it like I own the room. Super fierce. 🙂
You are a mighty fine woman, inside and out.
I have ALWAYS thought that a black woman with short hair looks SO beautiful!
I do too! I just wasn’t sure whether it would look beautiful on me or not.
It has looked beautiful on every woman I’ve seen…ever since I was little.
Jayne is right. Short hair on women is hot, so are tattoos. Double win!
I’m super sexy then!
I like it!
You rock! This totally confirms it.
Trying to be daring. 🙂
You can totally rock it. Do what feels good and walk talk girl. I know you liked the ass complement.,
Did I ever! Man knows how to win me over.
Looking good on you! Very nice! So… You are the one who influenced Beyonce to cut her hair, too? She just did it. She didn’t go natural but she has a nice short, ‘do, too. 🙂
I heard she went pixie cut short. Go her!
Go both of you! 🙂
Love your spirit Cara, never lose it.
I’ll try not to. It’s been fun finding myself
I’ve read some things and they do say confidence is indeed one of the things that men find sexy about a woman. You’ve got quite a bit. 🙂
I’m still working on it. Being in the dating scene has done wonders for my confidence though.
Gorgeous! And I absolutely buy laziness as a perfect reason…when I cut my hair short many years ago, I had the same reason…I’m growing my hair out now, but I also don’t have to go through what you do to keep it healthy and pretty, so I say, more power to you…and no matter what you do to your hair, you’re still going to be HOT!
If I was less lazy, my hair wouldn’t have been so bad, but my maintenance level for my appearance is ridiculous sometimes. No makeup, no hair do. It’s almost surprising these guys are all over me
I have a feeling that’s WHY they’re all over you… 🙂
I’m lazy and low maintanence with my hair too! Thank God the ponytail is still acceptable! Rock your new doo…love it!
Thanks! I will. 🙂
I recently went back to short myself. It’s very liberating to be able to just wash your hair and go. My daughter cut off her long, long hair as well and is now rocking a mohawk. It’s definitely all about self confidence
I love the ease of it. The texture too is so different than I’m used to. I’m wearing it proudly
Hair in undeniably important but I know that what’s in your head is so beautiful that even if you were bald…you would still be awesome!

I was thinking about being a woman and whether my attractiveness changes with the cutting of my hair. It’s made me really think about my appearance.
Yes, yes, yes. I love it. I wish all women (and men!) would quit fighting their natural hair. You look great (at least the part I can see…)!
Thanks. It’s definitely much easier to manage.
You have balls, C. It probably looks great on you, too.
Probably the ONLY downside, is not being able to have your hair pulled ;-). But we know you like your pain in other ways anyway lol
LOL. That is the only downside, but there ARE other ways to get my pain.
Looking good, you thinking of getting dreads or twist for future reference?
I haven’t made any decisions related to my hair
ok, but anyways you look beautiful always
