Inspiration for the Cut
In her video Bossy, there’s something about the way Kelis rolls out of bed, looks in the mirror, casually decides she wants to change her hair, grabs a pair of scissors and starts snipping away! It must be total and complete liberation, spontaneity and confidence that would make you get up and ‘change it up,’ just like that. And I LOVE IT!
I am no stranger to that and have cut my hair on three occasions. Two out of three times it was done as spontaneously as the above example 😉
I’ve long loved Kelis’ trendsetting hairstyles and had my eye on one particular do since 2011.
I just got around to it for my birthday last month after drawing additional inspiration from Rihanna
and some lady whose photo I saw in a local newspaper.
In order to achieve the style I needed, I had to get a perm, but I love my new hair so much that I don’t regret it! Since I got it done, I’ve gone back and had them shave the sides right down, because it’s way easier to handle when it’s low like that. And I’ve gotten hella compliments! Ching 😉
