HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW.

Just like clockwork, I shave my head every two years for the past 20 years...today was the day, it was hot outside and I was READY!
Here are a few pics I took this evening..


 
I considered leaving it like this, I liked this shape BUT it kinda defeated the purpose and probably would have been just as much maintenance
 So I went ahead and just cut it all...Im not an in between person, its all or nothing..and this is my FAVORITE hairstyle of them all.

 No thats not hair growing outta my back!!! LOL

Im looking forward to getting made up and doing my next photoshoot  with my "new" look..stay tuned

I love the "in-between" look alot!! But you are a beautiful woman and you can pull off the shaved head look. Can't wait to see the next photo shoot!

TAM + SAM said...

This new style suits you beautifully!

Still fierce as ever!!

Foxy not-so Brown said...

Thanks ya'll, I feel about 10 pounds lighter!

Stacy said...

This is something that I've always wanted to do again. I'm just afraid that I won't be able to get a job. The look suits you very well. Bald women are sexy and confident. There's almost this air of regalness-if that's a word,lol.

Stacy..dont be afraid of not looking professional, we have to stop being afraid so our daughters wont grow up in the same fear, I wore my hair like this as a professional with an office and I also wore my afro as a professional, went on interviews like that as well ..people really dont care how you wear your hair as long as its neat and clean..and you cant get any neater than this..also you dont have to cut it THIS short.

You look good with every look. Work it!

Scandalous Beauty said...

How Beautiful, and what an inspiration you are for the rest of us. I used to wear my hair this way before I locked it up, but thanks to you I'm going to change things up: again. It's so important that we keep change and newness in our lives, its part of what gives us that SPARK! @Stacy:people will respond to you according to your self-perception. If you walk in knowing & loving yourself and your history, you can ONLY win!

The Pretty Brown Girl said...

It doesn't even matter, Rachel. You look great with or w/o the hair. It's the "you" that makes you fabulous!

Tamara said...

I absolutely love this, you look so striking!

kendra said...

geez you are the coolest.

Foxy not-so Brown said...

thank you everybody..I appreciate the comments and support!
my next change is gonna be some piercings and tats!!

sewdope said...

I've been a lurker for a while now but this post right here!!!!! HOT! You have the cutest shaped head! Rock that hot mama!

I'm not an in-between person either! Love it!

AreyaFerd said...

Love it!

Tonia of Chic Modern Vintage said...

I have to admit it you wear it well. I would be very very veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy afraid to do that.

Makeup Vixen said...

Just gorgeous! JUST DOWN RIGHT BEAUTIFUL! I wish I had the bone structure to pull the new hair cut off like you! OMG you look amazing!

I still would like to ask what did you do to your hair to get it to grow that long over just 2 years. I've been natural for a 1 1/2 and my hair can only dream about your longer length.

alldaynatural said...

I absolutely love your confidence..it shines through in your photos. You certainly inspire others. :-)

Robin Nicolew said...

Super gorge!! I thought I was the only one who did this! With your head buzzed you're forced to really bring it with makeup, and accessories because your face is now the main focus (and you don't have to deal with your hair which is a plus for me). Do you notice that all your curves are accentuated perfectly with no hair on your head? Lol. I do, and I love it!

Bri said...

Love it each and every single time!

Rachel have you ever considered doing the dreds again?

I really admire your willingness to change *snap* just like that, you are right too....we can not be afraid of change or what others may think/say

Hair2Toe Beauty said...

Gorgeous!!!!!! I loved the start and finish results! I wish I knew how to shape my own hair, though.

TIna said...

Looks great! i used to shave mine once every 2 years as well, got lazy and now I only cut a few inches off when it starts to get too long. Looks great!

Steph said...

Love it! your hair gives me so much life!!

Niki McNeill said...

I wonder if Locks of Love would take your donation and make somebody a bangin fro!?

Foxy not-so Brown said...

the hair is long gone now Nikki..: (

The Black Planeteer said...

I LOVED the nappy 'fro pic. Looking forward to seeing the new shoot.

Claire said...

When I saw your post on NP, my first instinct was to go "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

But that's just me missing your hair more than anything. Lord knows, you look great!!

afroburbs said...

LOVE IT!

Khady Beye said...

You just look gorgeous either way but the shaved look fit your wonderfully Afrohip Mama!

Moxie Chick said...

Both hairstyles look great on you!

Kandeezie said...

Here I was thinking I was alone. Two years later, I'm short haired again. Love the look on you!

Mahoganybella said...

I love it! My jaw dropped though when I saw all that hair in the sink. I have seen your pics when your hair was this short before...it was gorgeous then and it is certainly gorgeous NOW! You are fab! I would love to share this on my blog...if you don't mind. :)

Chandra Kamaria said...

When I get my 'Fro to be as long as yours used to be, I'll be in Hog Heaven. I want to have a big view obstructing Fro like that. My head's too big for the new look. Way too big. LOL! It looks good on you though. Now, excuse me, I have money and some Rachel Stewart earrings to buy!

Chenequa said...

Wow, now you have given me the confidence to go ahead and do my second BC!!!

Foxy not-so Brown said...

Thank you Chandra!

Chenequa you cant back down now..I wanna see the pics!

Mahogany...go ahead I dont mind!

Shadders said...

omg YOU ARE STUNNING BOTH WITH OR WITHOUT HAIR WOOOW.....YOU ARE ONE BRAVE LADY

texture me natural said...

OMG!!!!...I wish I was as brave as you are. You are rocking the full style, the in-between, and the final cut like the star that you are. I am currently transitioning and I can't muster up the nerve to BC. I am four months post but I don't think that I am cute enough to go for the BC and I think my head is too big for a short look. You are simply stunning. You most definitely have a new follower.

Abbie said...

OMG! You look fab both ways :)

ValeriesWorld said...

It's really not for me, as I had my hair in a low cut for many years. However you are a very stunning woman, you have beautiful features. Whatever you do looks good on!. Blessings!

Taneica said...

....Ya know, Rachel, I want to yell at you for chopping off all of that goregeous hair, but your face is so beautiful, even without all the hair. It's very haute :-)

Erica said...

You have a very pretty face, it looks great on you. I think many women are strikingly beautiful with very short hair.

I was just curious as to why you do it every two years? I'm new to your blog and didn't know if you addressed it already...

Foxy not-so Brown said...

Hello Erica..no reason in particular...and I didnt even realize it was every 2 years till i really thought about it..I think thats about the time when I get bored with my look..and once again..this is my favorite style!

njoyable said...

First of all, I'm mad that this is my first time ever seeing your blog. I follow you on fb and twitter and love your jewelry!
Well..here I am now!
You look great no matter what! Love your new bc! :O)

dgerika2 said...

Wow! I love all 3 looks. How were you able to cut the middle hair so EVEN??? I've always wondered how to do that with a tight fro. It looks like a deva cut. Could you post a blog on how you did it?

IN TERMS OF ME said...

BEAUTIFUL!

Erica said...

That's cool, it's funny b/c I actually find myself cutting several inches off my hair every year or so just because I feel like it, I wondered if anyone else did the same kind of thing

Alexandra said...

you are so amazing! I love this post!

Karine said...

As much as I love baldies, I weep for your BAA :(

Femmes With Benefits said...

Extraordinary! =))

If this isn't encouragement, I don't know what is.
