Dani dishes on why her short haircut might not have been her best decision yet.
I shouldn’t have cut my hair. Yeah. I said it.
I don’t exactly miss my longer hair in itself…but now I’ve got all these Short Hair Problems that I never knew would come my way. My haircut is ruining my life.
Short hair isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Yeah the fade was cute for a minute, and yeah the color was a nice little change… but this short natural haircut is ruining my life and here’s why:
I’m not an exotical sex symbol anymore!
It’s a dark time in my life. I walk down the street and I don’t get accosted with “yo mami” or “Trini! Trini!”… I get no lip lickin’, no grunts of appreciation. Nobody thinks I’m some mysterious “other” race. Now I’m just boring ol’ African American. Yawn. And what’s worse…I get “Excuse me miss.” “A moment of your time, sis.” And once when I was with my son I got a ma’am. If a man tips his hat to me and says “g’day” in lieu of sneaking a peek at my rear and biting his lip, I may just slit my wrists.
