The Look: Boxed In

For you androgynous dolls, a box cut is killer. There’s something sexy about its boyish flare. The cut demands that the sides be kept low and the top soar to super high heights. Could you rock it? Here are a few tips.

Keep it Kinky: Those with an amazing zig-zag pattern will love this style. Your strong texture lends itself to maintaining the shape. You can twist, coil or braid your strands to create different versions of the look.

Sans the Shave: Do you absolutely have to shave your sides to rock this look? No. You can fake it by smoothing back a short to medium length style with pomade or mousse. Make sure to keep the volume in the front and you can imitate the look.

The Look: Time For Your Big Chop?

The Big Chop is a big decision, but it can be one of the most liberating choices you’ll ever make. For any one of you chicas that appear to be lost, ‘The Big Chop’ is when you either shave off all of your hair, or cut your hair down to your tiny, natural tendrils sans the ‘white crack.’ Check out our steps to making a fabulous transition to au naturel.
