I’d like to think that the notion that natural hair and professional environments don’t mix is long gone. I’m blessed to live in NYC where natural hairstyles are often the norm not only in street style but also in office style. I do get, however, that this is not the case everywhere.
Last year 4C Hair Chick interviewed me about my experiences as a natural hair girl working at one of the biggest corporations in the world, where I mentioned some of my initial struggles with natural hair at work and how I embraced all my natural fabulousness in a setting where it wasn’t actually the norm at the time.
I couldn’t be prouder to be a natural haired professional woman, and while my short tapered cut right now is easy and pretty fail-proof, there were the days before I cut my hair when I experimented with a variety of different looks at the office. Here are a few photos of me either at work or on my way to/from work in various natural styles over the years, to demonstrate how you can rock your curls at work.
