Short hair has been assigned its place in the black hair beauty community. Pixies and edgy cuts are reserved for women who are ‘feeling themselves’ or who are ‘about to change their lives.’ Truth is, not everybody can confidently pull off short hair.
It takes a bit of sass and a certain level of self-assuredness to wear your hair short. A woman with short hair has to know how to wear the hair and not have the hair wear her. People should see the person and not only the haircut. This kind of attention is what gives some women pause who are considering cutting their hair.
Cutting your hair short is a true commitment. It’s one you can’t turn back from. If you’re not one who can handle the attention and the upkeep, you may find yourself in a sticky situation. You may even be forced to wear weaves or wigs to cover up your mistake. But, the fact of the matter is that you can go for a test drive before you buy the car.
I have a friend who believes that every woman should keep at least one go-to wig in her stash. Wearing weaves or wigs isn’t only an option that’s available to those women who have mistakenly chopped off all their hair and now regret their decision. Short wigs and weaves can do the same thing for your style as 32 inches of Brazilian Body Wave can. They allow space for you to be versatile with your hairstyles.
Pixie wigs in particular have gained a lot of popularity lately. From the time Rihanna donned a pink one to JHud cutting all off, celebrities and non-celebrities alike are killing the short hair game. And the funny thing is that a lot of them are doing it with wigs and weaves.
This is an obvious one. Wigs and weaves give you something to play around with. You can explore how well a certain style fits your face shape. Or if you want to know if that swoop bang will annoy you before you actually get your hair cut that way, try it out with a wig or weave first. If you hate it, you can just chuck it and nobody gets hurt.
There are also so many options available as far as synthetic hair or human hair. Then there is the issue of which texture you may want to have fun with. Maybe deep wave suits you or a super curly look may be what you need for that tropical vacation. It’s all up to you.
