A different kind of long
By Reza Rites

My hair is longer than it’s been in a while. But you wouldn’t know it with the curls, kinks and shrinkage that characterize my hair’s natural state. I usually get to a point, length-wise, where I cut it to an overgrown afro or curly shag – lengths I feel comfortable wearing out and loose. This time, however, I’m doing things a little bit differently. Specifically, I haven’t put scissors to my tresses, yet, and I’ve been trying to rock a different long and natural aesthetic – the braids and twists look. Besides the visuals, its the feeling one gets from innovating, experimenting and succeeding that I enjoy. It might be hard in this Providence heat, but my fingers and hair intend to be close friends this summer. I’ll try to share more looks soon.

Sunshine and laughter,
