I LOVE T&T, + their families. She looks amazing. Plus, I know that they are twins but with her natural she looks like Tamera.

oh btw what if its for a role? Bc she mentioned on a tweet that she’s got news to share in the coming weeks. Possibilities are role or baby Housley or other possibilities as well 🙂 Either way awesome!!! CREE IS A DOLL awwwwwww

I love that style…But maybe it wasn’t a big chop,maybe she just wanted a short hairstyle. Its probably so easy and convienent with such a busy lifestyle and a busy baby. I miss my short haired days. Now thats truly a wash and go! LOL

I agree, each time a celeb cuts their hair they label them as having BC’ed and that is not the case.

Like thy want to blur the lines and take away the distinctions that it has to the natural movement.

Tia’s hair looks nice but I am inspired by natural hair icons as they do not have an army of stylists and they still look good. 🙂

Um did they call it a ‘fro’? And wasn’t she already natural? So basically she just got a haircut right? Cute cut though 🙂 If I’m completely wrong please link me and article or something, but I could have sworn she was already natural.

No she was rocking wigs all through The Game & her reality show Tia & Tamera. Tamera said in older interviews how their hair was damaged from all the chemicals and heat damage that comes with being in the industry.

Just because someone gets a hair cut doesn’t mean they’re doing the “big chop,” maybe they just want to try a new, short style.

I’m glad she did this!! She must have been transitioning for a while, because I noticed on her Tia & Tamera show she was always wearing wigs. I know in older interviews Tamera mentioned how their hair was fried from all the blowouts they make them do in the industry. So happy to see her embracing her natural curls again! ? 🙂

Everything is not a big chop, every thing does not need a label maybe she just wanted a short hair cut. I’ve cut mine several times and I don’t say ooh I BC’d again. Can a woman just wear a new style? Oh and her hair looks great.

What is the big deal if it is called a big chop? I swear there no matter what the topic there is always someone with the biggest chip on their shoulder, did a “natural hair police” stop and give you guys tickets today? How much was the fine? Pnl material.

They are trying to weaken it’s meaning by using it all the time.When it is so significant for us ladies who said bye to the relaxer.By changing the meaning ‚the are trying to change your mind,don’t let them.next thing white celebs will be BC’ing too…

I was wondering why some were ranting about the use of the term “big chop”? I hadn’t realized that the term could be “weakened” since women have been cutting off their hair and going natural before the inception of this slang terminology. When I cut off all of my hair about 5 years ago, I was unaware of its existence and when was made aware, it didn’t change how I felt. Ok, so Tamera’s shorning her locks in favor of her hair’s naturally curly state does not apply because she is a celebrity? Is that what the “issue” is? Is… Read more »

+1 Went natural in 2005 by cutting off relaxer. Never referred to it as a “big chop” or heard others refer to it in that way until recently. I didn’t know you could diminish the meaning of the term. Tia has taken off her wigs/weaves and cut off her long hair (relaxed or natural) for a much shorter style. Why can’t this be considered a “big chop?” Seems appropriate.

She looks AMAZING! People have been chopping off their hair before they labeled it a BC, so if she says she BC’d then let her live.

To me BC = starting fresh, chopping off damaged hair…(relaxed hair is essentially damaged so yeah) lol

Relaxing hair breaks the disulfide bonds of the hair…that’s damage. I didn’t say natural hair couldn’t be damaged, idk where you saw that..reading is very fundamental. She did however say her hair was damaged and she started fresh sooooo…she Big Chopped, hence the name of the article that you’re commenting on.

WRONG!! Im not going to debate relax vs natural but not all relaxed hair is damaged!! Yes, a relaxer changes the hair but its not damaged if so every relaxed person who be bald with no growth. No, she didnt say she big chopped there is no interview attached to Media Takes Outs picture so try again and take “reading is very fundamental” crap and shove it!!

lol, so you have to be bald to indicate that your hair is damaged.… and your hair stops growing once it’s damaged? Nevermind the fact that hair grows regardless and people walk around with split ends and brittle hair everywhere. I didn’t say she said that “I Big Chopped,” I simply defined it for you since you didn’t understand, but you don’t understand a lot of concepts so it’s not your fault. I’m done with this argument.

Can you please give me some general info on cosmetology school?

This chick will do anything for attention. She also tried to degrade her sister on their little “show” (in a passive agressive way) And if she says I AM A MOM one more time I may snap! Lol I am a mom , with a short cut too. Big whoop?

I thought I was the only one who notices that about Tia. She has been trying to be the “front and center” twin for the longest. Twice I have read the roles that Tia got, Tamera had tried out for them first, and decided to let Tia have them instead. I never liked Tia Period. Anyways getting back on track. The short hair is nice. No fuss no muss,when you are running around after a little one.

She looks like someone’s mom. But good move on Tia’s part. I’ve always liked the twin’s curly texture, since their Sister Sister days. As a matter of fact. Even as a kid, I remember watching the show and feeling disappointed when the twins decided to straighten their tresses. I always thought their spirals gave them a unique look.

I remember her and her sister from their Sister Sister days, their hair was natural in the beginning & I was a little sad when they straightened it. I love that she’s going back to that, they have beautiful hair. I think they actually put the idea in my head to go natural when I had the opportunity to.

She looks GREAT!!! I’m so happy when Black young ladies are proud of their hair texture — and flaunt it! I don’t like it when young Black ladies feel like they are supposed to have Long Straight (European) Hair hanging down to their waste-line. It seems as though they are ashamed of their own natrual beauty. Yes, Black ladies CAN be BEAUTIFUL with our own natrual hair — whether it’s long or short.

I get what you are saying but for black women who have naturally long hair, I don’t see a problem with wearing it straight and long. My hair is a bit long and when I blow dry it and flat iron it people always talk about how my hair looks like a white woman’s hair but that’s not my goal. Lol. I just want straight hair for that time. However, you will also see me in ponytails. And when I wear ponytails I wash my hair, condition it, and allow it to air dry then put it in a ponytail.… Read more »
