Organic “FREEFORM JOURNEY”
I’m the type of dude that just like to exist when it comes to style. My days of over extending myself for something or someone is over. “I am therefore I be” that’s my philosophy. I have an eye but its tastefully about being comfortable. There certain things I won’t do becuz I am not comfortable doing it. At 31 I chose to freeform my hair. In laments terms I wear it course. “nappy” sorta speak… I also don’t spend every waking hour in a barbers chair or I’m not in the mirror prepping every hair that grows on me. I’m not that dude. My lady friend asked me if I was getting a haircut. I asked her to come again? I didn’t hear u? She replied you heard me your not getting a shape-up or a taper or something? No I replied. WHY? Well, I don’t want to have my hair neat. I like wearing it the way it grows. I only get grooming when I need it. I got a line-up and taper the week before. She looked confused? Like? ” You need to do something tho?” I asked.. WHY? & started rubbing my fingers through my hair with so much dignity and pride. I smiled not out of sarcasm but out of joy. That this black women got the opportunity to meet a black man that loves to be himself. I wear my hair natural. I adore my natural texture and I have fun tapering it in different styles. I guess that’s the barber in me that wants to keep a line and clean taper @all times despite the style of hair. Her being concerned about my grooming is cool. but I am going to look the way I see fit. I am an adult and I think your identity is pivotal. “At least mine is” She understood and we kissed. She loves my nappy hair now.
