I’m Faded|Big (Mini) Chop #2


Fly, right?

I love my sideburns!

Although this is completely out of the ordinary for me, I’m in love with the results! What motivated me to do a second chop was wanting a change. I knew I wanted a shape to my fro, something edgy and adventurous!  I scoured the internet for inspiration and decided on a tapered cut. After agonizing over the details of who would execute the cut, whether to cut it in the curly or blown out state, and most important I worried that I’d hate it.

Blow Out Shrinkage!

Top: Day 1 | Bottom: Day 2

I have my hair blown out about 4 times a year when I have my hair trimmed. It’s an easy way for me to achieve the classic afro; a truly beautiful look! This time was special because my BFF did it for me. It wasn’t a pleasant experience because she combed through my hair first, and I HATE having my hair combed! Though we disagree about the necessity of the dreaded comb, I appreciated her work.

And oh how I LOVE a blowout, but baby! It shrinks right on up! Luckily, I’ve embraced all that comes with being natural, and shrinkage comes with the territory!
