My Journey To Shaved Sides & An Undercut

Today I thought it would be fun to take you guys through my journey to shaved sides.

Many of you know I started my natural hair journey back in 2011. 

From there I went on a growth journey. I really wanted to see how long my hair could get. After 3 years it had gotten pretty long.

I was very happy with my hair growth and I loved my natural hair, but I was bored. So, I moved on to something I thought would fulfill my itch for change, hair color!  

The color was gorgeous!!!  I loved the dimension it gave my styles and my hair in general.  I did notice a change in my texture though. It became really dry and was more difficult to retain moisture. I played a lot with products and styles and really started challenging my creativity around this time.  Being natural became even more fun. 

Even though I was really enjoying my style creations, my itch for a more dramatic change was really strong! I thought about the fact that I work in Corporate America and how that might limit me a bit and started researching different ideas I thought I could pull off.  I found this pic of @kaorinik and that was it!

My hubby and I cut my hair the next day and I immediately loved it and kept right on with my creative style innovation!

I had never loved my hair more! It was edgy, natural, chic and me! I was so into my personal growth and enjoyment if there was anyone who didn’t like my new look I had absolutely no clue and couldn’t have cared less if I did! Enjoying the chic edge of the undercut and shaved sides so much, I decided to take it up a bit higher on the sides…yasssss!!!

Everything was great! I got even more creative and noticed that a lot of people were inspired by my style. I challenged myself to wear a different style EVERY day, which really keep things interesting. After cutting my hair twice I was really surprised how much hair I still had on my head.

I loved my hair, but decided that I wanted some shape! And that’s what lead to my most recent meeting with the scissors and clippers. 

Since then I’ve even added some more color to my hair thanks to my MAY-KOVER curlBOX!


What’s most important to me is that I’m having a ton of fun and my hair is healthy! Whatever you do don’t try to guess what I might do next cause with me, you never can tell!
