When I Grow Up...

Well, I was talking to my hair the other day (as you do) and browsing through some groovy hair pics (locked and loose) when I came across this photo.

Stylist: Thierry Baptiste

I was about to click on when I felt a tugging at my elbow - "Hey Mama", my hair said, "When I grow up, I wanna be just like them".

Now, corporate me doesn't think I could rock this style in the office but Caribbean me would love to jam this to a garden party or summer BBQ.  I think it caught my eye not only for the creativity of the mohawk but for it's elegance; the model's grace and poise also make this magical for me. I'm impressed that the style can be done with so much length! It reminded me of my own hair goals and my reasons for locking it up in the first place - but I'll leave that to another post.

One question though - I wonder how she sleeps in it...?

A Bientot :)

Love from London

"Hi Lily:

Thierry's work is always on point. He is also published in Black Beauty & Hair, this months issue actually!

If you have locs and are in London, you can check out Morris Roots in Tooting, S. London or Jay Locs in North London. I am sure they can duplicate the look.

Style is easy to sleep with at most of the hair is in the middle of head, allowing sides to sleep on.

Regards

I work for a .com in an office that is usually professional, ha! I rocked my mohawk here, but it wasn't quite as big. My advice? Do it! Even just for a day.
