Just for Fun!! And out of pure Curiosity....

Ok... so every now and then, I will see someone with an interesting hairstyle, and wonder what I would look like with that look. I would never ever want to cut my loc's, so my curiosity goes unanswered. Essence Magazine has a cool online tool that you can use to try out new hair styles.

The only disadvantage to this application is that none of the styles feature natural hair textures!

So no luck with my trying on a beautiful afro, shorter loc's, TWA or even a clean shaven beautiful bald head. O well... Maybe I will write to Essence and ask then to broaden their selection. Any how for now, I took a few minutes to goof off, and this is what I came up with:

Shockenly enough, I actually love the short Halle Berry type hair cuts more than any of the others!!  I could never picture myself with short hair... because I have such a big head! But I am kinda liking it.  LOL... but who am I kidding!  Nothing beats my Naturally Beautiful Hair!  I will be Loc'd for LIfe!!!


  1. Hey girl, you know, during the early 90's I went to a mall to get a video done like this, and of course the video did not offer any ethnic hairstyles. But, I hated the blonde look, and the short hair on me.
    As for you, I like the one at the bottom-right.
    You got a "Tyra Banks" look going on with that one. [just my opinion]
    I am trying not to NV your lock pic though. That was the length of my first set of locks that I cut off!!!! {sad face}.... but, never-the-less, I am almost at year 3 with this set, and I hope to live long enough to grow this set past BStrap-Length.
    Take Care~

  2. Your hair looks so beautiful and natural! I've been thinking of growing dreads or braids and its good to see real women with them.

  3. Ha ha ha. You'd look especially nice as a platinum blond as well.

  4. thats a great tool because there are so many times that I've wanted to try a new style but didn't know how it would come out.

  5. Lol I tried this immediately after reading this and the short cut is the only one that looked like it couldve possibly grown out of my head. I luv my natural curls tho

  6. Lol. I always wonder about this every time I crack open a new issue of Essence. Thanks for playing and allowing me to experience it through your playtime. I agree that the Halle looks super cute on you! That's really unfortunate that they don't have any natural styles for people to try on. They should really change that.
