I do prefer short - med hair cuts mainly because of the texture of my hair. I've got curly hair and when it grows gets too hard to maintain. So I keep the sides and the back of my head short and the top I sorta spike with gel into a Mohawk sorta style. Think it suits me the best
Stan: You're wearing a hat!
Anyway, my wife and I were in Buffalo, NY this week and seems like this summer many black women there are preferring a fashionable shaved-almost-bald-but-not-quite look.
That's why I made the comment about NOT being bald Farouk. It isn't a bun under there ya know!
Yes I saw this trend start a few years ago on TV series, where black women were wearing buzz cuts. I must say the ones that sport it are very striking in appearance. My daughter had the half version of that. Buzzed on one side and mid length on the other. She got tired of it quickly and grew it out. I think that was started by Rihanna.
I liked it at first, but it gets straggly looking if you don't maintain the look, which is why many women try these looks then stop. It gets expensive, unless you have the kind of income Rihanna does.
Stan: There's always the alternative of keeping it virtually shaved, which ought to be reasonably straightforward and inexpensive, anyway. (Unless the weather gets rather cold...) I guess this was the daughter who acquired the tat too, at around the same time maybe.
Works for some; not everyone, though.
LOL...no men will do that, as my son and I will do from time to time, but you won't see most women using clippers on their own hair. They either go to a hair dresser or take on an easier/less expensive do to maintain.
Yes I only have ONE daughter. But no the hair was early this year, the tat was years ago.
