Ivy Farguheson

Whether you like your hair short or long isn’t the point.  But for many it is, especially for African-American women, whose hair is a source of tension, cultural pride and self-expression.  And for Ivy Farguheson who cut her hair and wrote about it in “Beauty and ‘el gran corte’: It Really is Possible”, cutting her hair short was a BIG decision.  And what she learned was powerful.  Whether you cut your hair a bit or a lot, you will appear beautiful.  Why?  It it was YOUR decision and that personal power makes you appear downright amazing!  As she states: “Truth is, women — people — can be attractive when they make their own decisions about how they want to look. Being true to yourself is attractive. Period.”

Love it.
