Hey Curlies,

We’ve went from crochet braids to faux locs and now to the ever famous tapered cut for natural hair.

It seems like everyone has jumped on this style trend whether their hair is straight or curly, but I’ve seen a big response from the natural hair community.

Some months ago I was speaking with a small business owner – who rocks a cute tapered cut – and she believes majority of women will ditch their long curly hair for the short cut. Now I don’t know if I completely see that happening, but I do think a lot of women like the look.

Thinking of getting yours chopped? Here are a few things to consider and a few inspirational photos to get you started:

1. Not everyone is a master at cutting curly hair, so make sure you find someone who knows what they are doing before they start.

2. Tapered cuts require a lot of maintenance, so make sure this is really what you want. You’ll likely have to visit a stylist or barber every few weeks to keep it in shape – so make sure you have the time and the funds.

3. Your new cut will require just as much care as your previous style. You’ll still have to wash it, deep condition it and apply product
