Muva was speaking the truth because a hair cut provides liberation and freedom for so many women. It is especially hard for women of color to choose to embrace that freedom because our culture romanticizes long, thick hair. The moment you tell your mom, aunt, or play cousin that you plan to cut your hair, they will act as if someone died. For decades, it has been instilled in us that our hair represents our crowns. This means cutting your hair signifies being stripped of your glory. Well, that is over and done because it’s a new year, and we have the right to decide what our crowns bespeak. From rocking 4c kinky hair to donning a buzz cut, the choice is yours.
