Natural Hair & Conformity in the Business World
Side note: I am now able to BUN MY HAIR!!! Only if it's stretched (co-wash and braid technique I discussed earlier). Anyway, I get easily bored with not-so-cute and/or boring styles. I took the bun down and was left with a head full of thick stretched kinks. I pulled it to one side and thought...UBER CUTE! Then I thought...dang, but is this ok for me to wear to WORK :/?
As a natural, I find myself often questioning if a certain natural style is or is not "work-appropriate" when the SAME EXACT hairstyle translated onto straight hair would be totally fine.
What do you do in these situations? Do you conform to something you know is safe? Do you "shake whatcha mama gave ya" (or wear in this case)?
As long as I have no super important conservative conference/meeting to attend, I'm going to SHAKE WHAT MY MAMA GAVE ME!!! lol :) They'll have to get used to it eventually, right?
