I hope one day people can overcome their prejudices and accept dreadlocks as a cultural statement.
What steps should we take if we want to actually change ourselves — or others — for the better?
I saw a picture of Beyonce with a pixie cut. She was just bleeding confidence, and I wanted to emulate that. But since she’s Beyonce and I’m me, I wasn’t sure whether I could pull it off.
The hair was so silky and straight. I felt like I was a whole new person because I had hair almost to my elbows! I couldn’t wait to go home and take so many pictures and post it on Instagram and I was even more excited to go to school and show my friends the new look. I hoped my friends didn’t think my hair made me look younger but made me look more mature. I got my hair like this because I felt it would make me feel older and wiser.
