A couple of months ago my cousin who is known for her long, luxurious hair, did the unthinkable by chopping it all off. She explained how she’s always wanted a short hairstyle, we only live once, and since we don’t know how long our time actually is it makes sense to LIVE. I completely understood where she was coming from.
Two years ago we tragically lost our cousin, who was more like a sister. Toya’s death forever changed us. Forget saying tomorrow isn’t promised, shoot, today isn’t promised.
I started thinking. I’ve always wanted to wear my hair in a cute Nia Long bob. I was natural for 3 years, got tired of that. I’m tired of braids, plus I think they’re the reason some of my hair fell out. I enjoy rocking a long wavy sew-in, but I was yearning something new. My cousin was right. I don’t know how long I’ll live, and even if I live to be 100 years old, I don’t wanna have any regrets. Besides, I’ll be 30 in four months. It’s time to step up my grown woman status. With that being said, it was an absolute EASY decision to cut my hair.
