Shaved Sides Will Be My Signature Look This Summer

Shaved Sides and Wash n' Go Fantasia Jamaican Black Castor Oil Collection

Happy Memorial Day y’all. It’s now the unofficial kickoff of the Summer season. I tend to cut my hair shorter as soon as the temperature rises. It makes it so much easier to just get up and go. I was tempted to another Big Chop like I did last Summer. But I decided on the shaved sides look instead. It’s ironic because I used to be the chick that couldn’t stand shaved sides. But now I love the look. It’s so funky and edgy. And it’s perfect for when I’m itching to cut my hair off, but allowing the top to grow long(er).

Tapered Cut Shaved Sides

I shave my head around the entire perimeter, keeping it dark. The top of my hair is still tapered though. Shaved sides may have grown on me. But I still don’t like the stark contrast of a line of demarcation between the shaved and longer areas. I prefer a faded look. The Wash n’ Go is my current go to style. You can see my latest tutorial here.

I’m keeping the top long for now for versatility. I may even try a few protective styles like Goddess Locs. That would be fierce!

What’s your thoughts on shaved sides?

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
