We recently shared a post about Ari’s Puff and how much we appreciated how easy her styling was.

You know what they say about a woman’s who cuts her hair right? And she cleaned out her Instagram too? Ari about to light us up!

Are you cutting your hair this year? Comment below!


  1. Yes. I cut my hair on December 31st before going to my favorite barber to even it up without lines so I could grow it out. Again. Mid-pandemic I combed out my locs, documenting it by the week, to my sister’s despair, on Facebook. It didn’t take too long since I’d started this second set of locks with a deep undercut hoping to cut down on the upkeep costs and gear up for self-maintenance. I’d lasted the better part of the year but still wasn’t feeling the way I wanted to about my “crown and glory”. From round about August to December I decided to see what deep conditioning could do toward restoring the damage left from the silk press I’d gotten in July. I couldn’t blame my stylist. Who, in the desert, gets a silk press in July! And then, did I mention I have a pre-schooler who loves getting into any water available beside the shower? Well, the fix was in. It was only a matter of time before I would give myself the permission to shave it back to my 20-year comfort zone. Since I’m on the far side of 30, I didn’t go as low as my eyebrows but used the longest guard on the electric clippers so my barber would have something to work with. He said I’d done a pretty good job and it took me a few days to collect and toss the hair I’d cut off into the sink but it wasn’t a tearful farewell. Reading your post about bible verses related to hair encouraged me as a mom now navigating the territory with a child who already loves and hates caring for her hair.
