“If I Cut My Hair, Will I Look a Man?” – Confession of a Hair Diva


Confession of a hair diva: “If I cut may hair, will I look like a Man?”

Some women are afraid of cutting their hair because they want to keep their femininity. So, the question is: can a woman lose her feminine vibe by chopping off her hair? We think it depends. The body frame, size, and haircut matter.

What of Lupita Nyong’o or Amber Rose, women who have made haircut popular? Brande Victoria explained her concern on MN. Here is her confession below:

“I basically spent the better half of my day yesterday perusing The Cut Life trying to figure out what I’d look like with a pixie cut, because like I told you, I’m dramatic. I really don’t know that I have to get my hair cut quite that short, but there’s also a part of me that has an inkling I was still left with some straight ends after my big chop in October 2015 and that’s why a year and a half later my curls still won’t let me be great — or maybe it’s the other way around.

There’s also a part of me that is not interested in going into Summer 2017 looking more like Brandon than Brande — despite confirmation from my coworker that being the “makeup queen” I’ll be just fine. See as I sat in the salon, I got to chatting with a woman with a fade and she started going on and on about how people assume she’s a lesbian just because of her cut when she really just can’t be bothered to do her hair. The way my single life is set up –I can’t take those chances. But I also don’t want to have to wear makeup all the time, and considering I spend 75% of my life in workout clothes nowadays with no makeup, there could be a lot of room for ambiguity (if you’re the type of person who subscribes to stereotypical gender norms).”
