  • After Months Of Transitioning.....

     

    It's finally here. My day of reckoning. The crack lost, and the my naps won. I thank everyone that helped me along my journey. I even found my stylist (Jackie Tennon) on hairtipsforme. It was a wonderful exerience and I just wish I had done it sooner. I've created a fotki so you all can share in my experience. Feedback and comments are welcome!

    One love...

    *Update*: I wanted to update my post and let ya'll know that I _heartpump: my HAIR! I really wanted to offer encouragement to those still transitioning that are confused, unsure, or scared of how they will look with a twa. I have ALWAYS been told, "Girl you got a Gina head!" (for all you Martin fans out there, you know what I'm tallking about. I was really self concisous that my head was abnormally large, but after cutting off all the r.e.l.a.x.er, I see my goregous, almost perfectly round head was just hiding. I never thought I could wear any type of short hairstyle, but here I am. Please listen when I say that you CAN rock the twa. I have never felt more womanly, alive, exhilirated, excited, etc than I have after cutting my hair.

    Also, today was my first day of unveiling my hair at my job. All of my immeadiate coworkers are caucasian males, and they absolutely loved my hair and thought it was cool. I felt really special and relieved. I have yet to see "my sisters" , but I feel so confident in my new look that I can take on anything! I almos feel overwhelmed, but am definitely looking forward to a long natural life. :Cool_049:

    Thanks naturalfire! I was so excited when I got it done. I just couldn't stop smiling. I'm still getting used to looking in the mirror and seeing the new me, but more and more it grows on me. You really do notice your features without all that stringy hair getting in the way.

    Thanks all! I was wondering if I have my fotki guestbook set up properly to allow comments. I really would appreciate a test comment from someone. Again thanks for all the encouragement and support. Everyday seems so new, like the air is cripser and the sky is bluer...I'm really loving the new me!

    Gina head or none, this style looks good on you. And I think it goes better with your features than when you had it relaxed. Welcome to the "real side". I'll be following your album.
