Since the weather is cooling off now, even I’m letting my natural hair grow. And I LOVE my super short, natural hairstyles. I DO. I’ve been rocking super short hair for a minute now. But when Fall approaches I begin to prepare for the colder winter wind that is bound to come, and I like to have a few coils to cover this head from the cooler temperatures. I’ve already started my Fall growth. I’m only a few weeks in, but I like how my curls are popping and how my hair is growing in. I’m maintaining a short tapered style that I’m going to allow to grow into a longer tapered style through the Fall and Winter.
Looking for short, natural hairstyles you can rock?
If you’re going through the cycle of letting your short hair grow out a little, here’s some natural hairstyle inspiration for you. My short, natural hairstyle selections usually focus on the close-to-bald look. That’s not what these are. These ladies are working their gorgeous coils, but still keeping it close to the scalp. Several of these women are rocking some beautiful color – which I think I’m going to step back into – and beautiful styles, too. Be inspired by their radiance. And if you find one that you think works better, share it with me, too. I’d love to see it.
I don’t know which beautiful black woman was the first one to refer to herself as the Baddest Bitch.
Was it Lil Kim or Nicki Minaj?
To be honest, you can reply in the comments below, but it really doesn’t matter to me. . at all. I just wish the madness would stop.
Black women have to think of ourselves as more than female dogs. We are of royal lineage and may as well be the first to fully embrace that fact, so the rest of the world can feel obliged to follow right along. I embrace it. Do you?
Well, anyway. I digress.
I spotted the most beautiful black queen with gorgeous natural hair on Saturday in South Beach Miami at Bayside Marketplace when my family and I were leaving Bubba Gump Shrimp Company to head back to our car. This sister was absolutely stunning with amazing hair color and a curl pattern that literally stopped me in my track. I told her, “Sister, I don’t know what you’ve been doing with yourself, but you are gorgeous.” And then I asked to take her picture, so I could post it on my blog. She obliged and then gave me the biggest, warmest hug I’ve ever received. We spoke for a few moments after the exchange and she was so emotional when she explained to me that she had cut her hair and wasn’t sure if the look worked for her or not.
I showered her with compliments. All true. All depicting how I felt in the moment. And all things that needed to be said to a beautiful sister who is shining bright in a cruel, cruel world and who is not quite sure if anyone could see her light.
Well, I seench you my sista! LOL. And
YOU are a beautiful queen.
