I felt like my hair color was tied not just to who I wanted to be, but to who I already was. The hidden parts of me just needed some encouragement, some poking and prodding, to come out.

After enduring over a year of incessant yammering, I fired my hairstylist for talking.

I screwed up my hair color at home, but the correction is the most flattering shade I've ever had. (Also, don't bring your pubes to the hair stylist.)

I know we’re all trying to serve our best beach babe look all summer long, but I'm in the mood for something a little riskier.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to spend so much time thinking about my hair. Especially for women (and even more especially for women of color), the performance of the right kind of hair, good hair, has real consequences.
