For months I’ve been searching for the perfect cut to take down my fro to provide a little relief during this humid Summer heat. Detangling got to be too much of a hassle and I found myself seriously dreading wash days. Plus, I was just using entirely too much product to get my fro to behave so I had to take it down a notch.
You might remember my recent trip to Miss Jessie’s salon in SoHo that left me feeling pretty unsatisfied with my experience. Well, I decided to give it another shot. After months of back and forth about getting rid of some length I finally decided to take a leap of faith and recently stopped into a local barber shop one day and said, “You see what I have now, I want to leave with half of it.” He listened! And after a few moments/days of slight panic, I’m feeling pretty good about the cut! My only real qualm about the experience was that when he picked out my hair, he didn’t pick from the ends to the root which caused a lot of pulling, but I gave him a pass and even helped by finger combing a bit while I was in the chair. Here’s my new(ish) look!
