We profile our fair share of long styles on BGLH. But sometimes the better option, stylewise, is to go short rather than long. Mimi’s gorgeous cut is a reminder of that. Check out her fotki album here.
BGLH: Do you prefer your hair short or long?
MIMICUTELIPS: I don’t have a preference, I like change, and I love both.
BGLH: How many times have you cut it since you went natural? What usually triggers your decision to cut?
MIMICUTELIPS: I have cut my hair *counting on fingers* 3 times I believe. I would get frustrated with my hair and perm it then regret it. I would keep a perm 7 days or so and then shave it all off.
BGLH: Why do you like the short look?
MIMICUTELIPS: It shows off my beautiful bone structure *falling out in laughter* its quick and easy.
BGLH: Your style is hot! but do people ever think you’re crazy because you’re not stressing over having long hair?
MIMICUTELIPS: The people around me know and love my crazy drastic actions with my hair. A lot of them love it long, but I get more compliments from strangers when its short. I hear a lot of “you have the face for short hair not everyone can rock that”. I don’t believe this one bit. The only people who are hung up on length are those that think the length of your hair somehow defines one’s beauty. I am me short hair or long hair and I rock either of them out. Once you become comfortable in your own skin, hair is simply an accessory.
BGLH: What is your regimen for your short style?
MIMICUTELIPS: I actually don’t have a regimen with any length of hair. I normally rinse my hair in the morning, sometimes I just rock it out like that. Other times I put curly pudding in it to define my curls… This time I’ve been keeping it short, so I randomly call the barber when I’m ready for a cut, again no schedule. I don’t think my personality will permit me to stick to a regimen. lol
Wow Mimi! Your style is fierce, and my cheekbones wish they could be like yours. Thanks for sharing :)
And dopeness in the blogosphere: Jc over at The Natural Haven has a discussion entitled “Will you always be natural?” going on at her blog. It was sparked by a 10-year natural veteran who is considering a relaxer. Definitely check it out here.
