“Hair is a powerful indicator of identity.” – Rose Weitz, ASU Sociologist
Women in Nairobi tend to forget that their image counts as a whole. Not just the clothes and shoes they are wearing or the handbag they are carrying but their nails, their skin, and mostly importantly their hair. As a major feature of any woman’s character and overall look, a women’s hairstyle can unfold an entire story about her.
We are told never to judge a book by its cover, but we think it’s perfectly acceptable to judge a woman by her hair. From wild and crazy to simple and sweet, how you wear your hair can say a lot about your personality.
A woman’s hairstyle puts her in a self-selected class and offers you some real information about her. Here’s my take on what a lady’s locks may reveal about the woman herself.
This style points to a low-maintenance, easy going woman who wants to roll with her natural locks. The curly haired woman who spends hours poking her head with a hot iron is one who’s obviously not pleased with her hair and who might easily find fault elsewhere. Curls happen to suit many women very well.
A classy, professional look worn by motivated, career-oriented women. This style is more mature than the full-fledged bangs that a teenager would wear but still makes a woman look youthful and playful. Celebrity wearers include Beyonce, Keri Hilson, Tyra Banks, and Rihanna. That’s good company.
The name sounds kind of menacing, but I’ve learned that the style is simply a “bouncy,” high-volume look. The ’do shows the woman’s whole face, which tells me she has a positive attitude and confident about her complex.
Assuming she’s not wearing extensions, a woman with very long hair is simply afraid of change. She’s a sentimental type who wants to keep what’s been growing for however long. At the same time, long hair is also the look of choice for those glamorous centerfolds (the double page image of models- usually choose to have long curly locks) There is a difference between chest-length locks and a Ripley’s exhibit.
This is a formal look and a popular choice for brides. If a woman is wearing it on a regular basis, she just might be itching for a ring. Pay attention, gentlemen.
This style is a far cry from G.I. Jane, but it still takes a truly beautiful and confident woman to pull this style off. A gal with short hair immediately calls attention to her face, and chances are she has high cheeks and killer eyes. Mind you, a lot of men are not attracted to this style, but of course, the woman who wears it probably doesn’t care what they think.
Without a picture, I couldn’t tell you what this looks like. With a picture, I can tell you it looks boring and old-fashioned, but not in a charming, rustic kind of way. Just plain, probably worn by a homebody. Maybe that’s why it’s called low-key.
This is a playful, youthful style. Dangerously close to a Lego-man look, but in the flesh it’s definitely cute and fun. This style might be the territory of women who want a short style but decided that the pixie cut is too extreme. What does it say about the woman who wears a bob? – that she’s cute and fun, youthful and not afraid of new things.
Just like the curly haired woman, a gal with an Afro is proud of her natural locks and doesn’t seek to change it. It’s a strong, bold ’do, probably worn by a woman with the same qualities as the curly haired woman.
This could go one of two ways — a free spirit, nonconformist with eclectic taste or someone potentially crazy who wants attention. The free spirit doesn’t care what you think and just happens to like a certain wacky color; the attention-craver wants to be the free spirit but really is not.
Regardless of the cut, length, color and texture of your hair, it’s a huge part of your identity. The best thing about it is that you can change it — whenever you want to. It’s attached to you; and as such is an integral part of who you are. But because of how it makes you feel and look, hair can also help you ace an interview, show your quirky side, or simply project confidence.
