I’m confident about my hair thanks to my mom—and (@TheCutLife) Instagram
I’m Fusion’s style writer and I change my hair A LOT. Since I moved to New York City three years ago, I’ve had a total of seven different hairstyles, from box braids to the pixie cut I have now. When I was younger, I changed my hair often—I felt unsure about the way that I looked (I also thought long hair = pretty). Now, not to get all India Arie “I’m Not My Hair” on you, but the more confident I become, the easier it is to treat my hair like a no-strings attached accessory. I think my care-free attitude towards my mane has a lot to do with my mother, and watching her effortlessly move from hairdo to hairdo growing up.
