Is This Hair For Play or To Stay?
I recently did a hair change just for fun, nothing drastic or permanent. Just a lil something’ different to spice it up for my birthday. I still wanted my hair to look and be natural, but I decided to give corkscrew curls a test run. You know, the type of curl I had delusions of growing when I first went natural. Ha!
Of course I cleared it with my agent first and assured them that this hair change was only for some birthday fun and I would have the sew-in removed after about two weeks, but here is where things took a turn.
I did indeed get the corkscrew curls I wanted to rock for my birthday and I did indeed rock them to the fullest. But surprisingly, when I went to my agency to show my bookers what it looked like, they actually loved it! So now, they want me to keep this look for a while. I guess that’s not bad… it’s just unexpected.
I haven’t worn extensions in so long, it definitely feels a little weird to think this look might be sticking around for a while. Although I love the current look, I love my own natural hair too and even more, being able to touch my freakin’ scalp when I want to!
There’s no doubt that I make my own decisions, but when it comes to having a successful modeling career, it’s a team effort. It’s also important to be flexible or open minded (within reason) about how clients want to see you. I trust my agency and my team enough to value their ideas and opinions. So folks, it appears that what I thought was for play, is here to stay…at least until a client request I take it out.
What do you think? Do you like the new look? Do you think it can’t hurt to give it a try? Or do you prefer the look of my real hair? Be honest, but be nice!!!
