Jennifer Hudson’s Big Chop: Are you a slave to your hair?

I am not my hair. I am not a slave to my hair. BUT my hair is very important.  I’ve struggled with the decision of doing the big chop for years.  It all started when I decided to go on a hair journey a few years ago. The journey led me to the realty that natural unrelaxed hair is the best option, however not necessarily the best option for me.  I am not scared of how I would look with natural hair, I am truly afraid of the process. Dealing with my hair, in its tex-laxed state is very time consuming. I do not know if I could dedicate any  more time on my hair. It almost saddens me to admit this but currently I am at the point where I do not want to even deal with my own hair, I’ll rather deal with weaves and wigs. I don’t want to be a slave to hair yet I am.

I find it rather refreshing that Jennifer Hudson cut all of her hair off. I am not going to sit up here and lie and say I am totally in love with her new style, because that would definitely be a lie. I am not sure if I like the way her hair line is running away from her forehead. From the reports I’ve read, Jennifer took the scissor sand got rid of her hair all by herself. I wish I was that brave.

Us Weekly reports that her inspiration came from a legend in the game:

As for the why, the Oscar-winning star, 33, said her inspiration was none other than the iconic model and singer Grace Jones, who first made the “flat-top fade” a fad in the ’70s and ’80s.

Hudson described her hair as “always changing,” but the most recent cause for her new style was her move to NYC to star in The Color Purple on Broadway.
