|The Process of Getting My Hair Tapered|
This past Sunday, I went to a barber shop and got my hair tapered. The afro was cute, but the tapered look was more me. When I called the barber shop, I was already armed with some photos. Luckily the barber also cut/shape-up women's hair on a regular basis just as he does men's hair. He told me to wash my hair, put no product and blow dry it out. And do not cover my head so I don't press my hair down. That way, he doesn't have to pull on my hair so much when he combs it out and he can get a more precise cut.
When I got there, I was not nervous but so eager to sit in that chair. I kept staring at the photos that I had screenshots of. 10 minutes later, I finally sat in his chair and he hooked me up lovely. 30 minutes later, I was done. He told me when I wash my hair, it will shrink up and I will see the actual look I was going for. I went home, cowashed and was extremely pleased with the results as it started to get into it's "natural" state.
I decided that I may keep the sides and back tapered for a while and let the top grow out. I love it, it is fun and new. I also can't keep my hands out of my hair either! I am loving my hair and it is going to be a fun journey although I have to go through this "trial and error" phase with hair products.
Thanks so much for reading!
