transition hairstyles

5

Believe it or not these are all from the same day; I love how you can actually see how much more confident and comfortable I am when I can be myself (: I had to go do some legal stuffz and be in boy mode because sometimes that makes things more convenient, but I rewarded myself with a visit to the hair salon! Next time I’m going to try color!!! 😆

A three+ year evolution of my hair (and my face, and my fashion sense, and my makeup skills, and the effects of HRT, and…). There were many occasions where I abruptly shortened my hair length, and this was always to rebalance it as varying parts grew faster or slower than others. It could be much longer now if I hadn’t, but it wouldn’t look nearly this nice today. Think “slow and steady wins the race”. From day one, the decisions made were guided by my stylist based on my long term goals, with the objective of maximizing current appearance without sacrificing the long game. Despite the shifting sands that my goals have been (“I want to grow it out long,” “I want a wedge now,” “I want to grow it long again…”) she has done a fantastic job of keeping me looking my best and teaching me how to style it.

I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: If you’re transitioning, having a great hairstylist on your team from the start is going to make a huge difference. Don’t go it alone any more than you should with your HRT, or learning makeup, or mastering fashion. Let people who know what they’re doing help you to fast track your development. It’s crazy not to.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Doing my braids by myself saves me loads of money and I personally don’t like other people touching my hair?? Idk if that’s just me, last time I went the lady was really rough and pulled out my hair :(

My night time hair care is pretty simple:

  1.  I spray my hair with water and seal with coconut oil 
  2. Then I put it in a low tension bun 
  3. & Wrap with a silk scarf and then I’m done :)

If this helps you pls submit photos!! x x x

"at least you have good hair"

Is a phrase that makes me want to slap you. Because of people like you, i have to always convince my friends to not quit their transitioning journey, and talk them out of a perm, because y'all are the same people who tell them to “comb their hair” or ask if they’re gonna straighten it anytime soon. You make them feel like their hair, by itself, is inadequate. You use words like “wild” and “nappy” in a very distasteful & pejorative manner. You tell me that I should be happy that I’m “blessed with a good grade of hair”. Are you saying that 4c hair isn’t a blessing? Fuck you. Don’t ask me if I’m mixed when my hair is flat-ironed. Don’t call her bald-headed because you’re judging her shrinkage. Hair should not be a status symbol. You’re not helping. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

anonymous asked:

This may sound weird but do you know any resources to try out hairstyles for transitioning? Like a website or app? My anxiety makes me indecisive to I want to see what the styles would look like me before I cut my hair. If it helps I'm nonbinary and looking for something like a pixie cut or a fauxhawk or something like that.

I did a quick google for “hairstyle apps” and found these articles, so some of the apps they mentioned might be worth trying out: [link] / [link] / [link]

If any of my followers have any other recommendations for anon, please feel free to add to this post.

Writing Research - The Roaring Twenties

The Roaring Twenties is a term sometimes used to refer to the 1920s in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, characterizing the decade’s distinctive cultural edge in New York City, Chicago, Paris, Berlin, London, Los Angeles and many other major cities during a period of sustained economic prosperity. French speakers called it the “années folles” (“Crazy Years”), emphasizing the era’s social, artistic, and cultural dynamism.

Normalcy returned to politics in the wake of hyper-emotional patriotism after World War I, jazz music blossomed, the flapper redefined modern womanhood, and Art Deco peaked. Economically, the era saw the large-scale diffusion and use of automobiles, telephones, motion pictures, and electricity, unprecedented industrial growth, accelerated consumer demand and aspirations, and significant changes in lifestyle and culture. The media focused on celebrities, especially sports heroes and movie stars, as cities rooted for their home team and filled the new palatial cinemas and gigantic stadiums. In most major countries women won the right to vote for the first time. Finally the Wall Street Crash of 1929 ended the era, as the Great Depression set in, bringing years of worldwide gloom and hardship.

The social and cultural features known as the Roaring Twenties began in leading metropolitan centers, especially Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Paris and London, then spread widely in the aftermath of World War I. The United States gained dominance in world finance. Thus when Germany could no longer afford war reparations to Britain, France and other Allies, the Americans came up with the Dawes Plan and Wall Street invested heavily in Germany, which repaid its reparations to nations that in turn used the dollars to pay off their war debts to Washington. By the middle of the decade, prosperity was widespread, with the second half of the decade later becoming known as the “Golden Twenties”.

The spirit of the Roaring Twenties was marked by a general feeling of discontinuity associated with modernity and a break with traditions. Everything seemed to be feasible through modern technology. New technologies, especially automobiles, moving pictures and radio proliferated “modernity” to a large part of the population. Formal decorative frills were shed in favor of practicality in both daily life and architecture. At the same time, jazz and dancing rose in popularity, in opposition to the mood of the specter of World War I. As such, the period is also often referred to as the Jazz Age. [1] [2]

Time for another long overdue update!

So the yarn twists have finally been taken down after a 5 week run and since then, I’ve went out and stocked up on my Master Shea mix supply. 

The trip was a bittersweet one. Bitter because I left Whole Foods almost 40 bucks poorer after only purchasing those two things up there but sweet because I now have a fresh batch that will last for months.

Two things; I’ve thought about switching shea butters for a while but Whole Foods didn’t have much of a selection to choose from. Nothing’s wrong with the brand I have now, it’s actually the best I’ve had thus far, but $20 for one tub is a bit steep. I will say that the fact it’s organic, unrefined, smooth and Fair Trade makes me feel a little bit better about purchasing, though. So, unless I come across a cheaper brand of equal quality, I think I’ll begrudgingly stick with it for a bit.

And then secondly, I know in a previous post I said that I wouldn’t purchase the Alaffia brand shampoo again, but alas, it was on sale. I really need to get back with the mudwash, my hair is missing it.

Anywhoo, hair has been washed, deeply conditioned with my mastermix and twisted up! I did these twists about twice as big as I usually do my mini twists because it’s starting to take forever and a day to twist my hair since it’s gotten longer. 

I’ve actually been considering doing a pretty substantial trim within the next few weeks, maybe a few inches or so, to keep my hair at a fixed length to make maintenance easier. I also miss how layered my twists were when they were shorter but I’m pretty conflicted. I really want to see how long my hair can get but I know it’ll be more of a hassle each time I detangle. But I dunnoooo.

Sounds like I have a couple decisions to be made, my dears.

As always, I’ll try my hardest to keep up with this thing.

Stay beautiful :)
