One of my favorite stages of the natural journey is the ‘big chop’. I can count on one hand the number of bad big chops I’ve seen. The vast majority are gorgeous.
A short cut draws attention to the eyes, the skin and the bone structure of the face. And that continues even as natural hair grows in.
The kinkier our hair is, the more it defies gravity. It pulls away from the face, drawing up facial features instead of dragging them down.
The best BGLH example I’ve seen of this is November Now and Then winner Jana.
Her flat, relaxed hair was REALLY hiding the fact that the girl is a STUNNER! Meanwhile her fro accentuates her cheek bones amazingly, and shows off how cute her nose is.
The longer I’m natural and the more I blog about it is the more I see how natural hair uniquely complements us as black women.
But what are your thoughts?
Do you think natural hair draws up facial features? Have you noticed other ways that natural hair complements our features?
Or have you not really seen this at all?
