BIG CHOP

That’s what they call it when you chop off your relaxed hair down to your natural hair. I never in a million years thought that I would cut my hair so short, but I must say that I love it! I still sometimes flinch when I catch a glimpse of myself, but more often than not, I like what I see. With my level of indecisiveness and high probability of shoulda-coulda-woulda this is the best I can ask for.

Me, sans hair.

Unfortunately, this means that my hair journey 365 attempt has sort of been aborted. My camera seems to be dying a slow death anyway and I really can’t be bothered remember to take a photo of myself each day. I think I will do my own version of this project. 365 photos, but taken at random. I’ll see.

Meanwhile, I’m sewing. I had an idea for a multi-directional stripe dress that quickly turned into a circus dress. So, back to the drawing board on that one. I’ve cut out a simple kimono sleeve wrap dress that I will whip up later. And I will make an attempt at making a fitted dress for me. I think I’ve finally worked up a bodice that I like, the fit of the skirt always presents an issue. But, I will be attempting my first swayback* adjustment to see if I can finally achieve the look that I want. Stay tuned.

*BurdaStyle appears to have dropped the ball with their suggestion to raise the waistline. A more detailed solution was found here after much google searching.

  1. I love it!! You look awesome. I love the look of super short hair with big, dramatic earrings like you’re wearing in the photo. Have fun with your new style!

  2. Love it, love it, love it!!! Especially with the big hoop earrings. You can always check out my hair site (part of my freelancing) because I have info on natural hair, big chops, transitioning, etc.

    I hope this doesn’t end up in spam but here’s the link: http://blackhair.about.com/
