So, I was actually inspired to write this by my last entry, which featured a natural with a “punk” look.
I talked earlier about how all natural women are presumed to be neo-soul sistas, although there are actually lots of different categories.
There are, of course, the NEO-SOUL natural sistas. A lot of dreadlocks and sisterlocks here. A lot of African inspired jewelry, head bands, etc.
There are the FLY GIRL naturals (a lot of soror sisters and corporate women in this category 🙂 Hair is always really fly, real impeccable, and goes perfectly with outfit and jewelry.
There’s the PUNK natural. Rockin’ the fro-hawks and the crazy colors.
There’s the CLASSIC, CONSERVATIVE natural. Cornrows and twists are always really neat. No fuzz to be seen.
There’s the ROOTZY natural (thanks for the word Marissa!) Not afraid to rock the I’ve-never-taken-a-comb-to-my-head look.
There’s the GODDESS natural. She just has a whole lot of hair… like epic amounts of beautiful kinky/curly hair.
There’s the INTERNATIONAL natural. Natural haired women from Europe, Canada, Africa, the Caribbean…
These are just rough categories based on my untrained observations. My question is what kind of natural are you?
