In today’s video, Monica from MoKnowsHair is having a get together with Johnny Wright, who is a celebrity hairstylist from Chicago, IL. He has worked most recently with first lady Michelle Obama. If you plan on having a hairstylist do your hair, then this video will help in knowing how to communicate your hair needs to the stylist. This is important as we learn from the video that it helps the stylist in giving you the right service.
The main focus of the video was on haircuts. Haircuts are essential. Many naturals don’t want to do it; they fear that it will take away from years of growth. The video has done a great job dispelling this mistruth. As black girls, our hair needs to be trimmed on a regular basis in order to keep the growth coming.
As to the question whether you should trim yourself or not, I would say follow the recommendation of a stylist. But, if you feel comfortable doing it yourself then go for it. You will find Monica at Moknowshair.com for more information.
In the comment below, do you trim yourself or do you leave it to the pros?
