Nothing in life is permanent, so why should hair be? As in anything else, there is a season, an ebb and flow. We may ride the wave, but there is always a changing in the tide. Hair cycles operate the same. We see it, must have it, commit and then have a change in desire. Innovation in natural hair provides options, on top of options. But then, there is the Loc question. After countless updos— numerous curl sets, Bantu knots, Loc wraps and stylized cuts— where does one go from there? Is a big chop the next step after years of commitment and simple boredom? Nope. Not in today’s market. Sonika Arrington is the proof— Locs don’t stop the fun. She wanted to shift gears, shake it up a bit, while having fun in the sun on the beaches of the Virgin Islands. Enter the Bombshell crown created by Hotpeeznbutta and trust me it ain’t your grandma’s wig! It is custom shaped to fit and frame any face. I admire Ms. Arrington’s willingness to have fun with her hair, try new things and her dare to be different…how’bout you?
