How important is hair to overall attractiveness? Specifically, which styles (down vs. ponytail vs. bun) and lengths?ANY STYLE OR LENGTH THAT “WORKS” FOR THE WOMAN, WORKS FOR ME. THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE SEXINESS THAT COMES FROM CONFIDENCE IN YOUR APPEARANCE.
What was your reaction to Tomiko’s decision to go natural?
I WAS BEHIND IT 100%. TO ME THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF ANYTHING RELATING TO PERSONAL APPEARANCE IS HOW IT MAKES YOU FEEL. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, HOW CAN YOU EXPECT OTHERS TO??
Do you feel there is a ‘Natural Hair Movement’ currently occurring? Why do you think so many women are going natural (i.e. Do you think most women want to make a statement or to just stop relaxing)?
ABSOLUTELY. AND I THINK MORE WOMEN ARE GOING NATURAL BECAUSE MORE WOMEN ARE GETTING MORE IN TUNE WITH THEMSELVES & GIVING LESS POWER TO CURRENT IMAGES OF ‘BEAUTY’.
Are you able to tell the difference in textures of hair? Does the texture of her hair affect your opinions on whether a woman should remain natural or not?
YES I CAN AND NO IT DOESN’T. IF SHE’S ROCKING IT LIKE SHE OWNS IT, IT’S SEXY!
Do you like or dislike when Tomiko changes her hair style often (i.e. wigs, weaves, braids, flat ironed, wash & go)?
I ENJOY IT!! KEEPS THINGS FRESH.
Does the amount of time Tomiko spends on her hair prove to be problematic?
NOT ANYMORE! LOL
How do you feel about the amount of money Tomiko spends on her hair? Is there a point where the amount of money is a source of conflict? Is it acceptable for her to spend as much as she chooses as long as she looks fly?
I DON’T EVEN CONSIDER IT. BUT I CAN UNDERSTAND PEOPLE BECOMING OVERWHELMED WITH THAT KIND OF STUFF.
Do you think Tomiko should consider your opinion when making decisions about her hair?
YES. BUT SHE SHOULDN’T BE BEHOLDEN TO IT.
Why do you think women care about a man’s opinion when it relates to hair?
BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN TAUGHT THAT MEN’S OPINIONS ABOUT THEIR BEAUTY IS WHAT GIVES THEM THEIR BEAUTY. IT’S CRAZY.
How do you view women that wear weaves? Can you tell the difference between natural hair and a weave?
AGAIN, I DON’T CARE AS LONG AS THEY OWN IT. BUT, UHHHHH, A BAD WEAVE IS A PROBLEM.
How do you feel about satin sleeping bonnets or any type of hair scarf?
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ‘EM!
Does it matter to you whether Tomiko’s hair is relaxed or not?
DUE TO THE DAMAGE THAT RELAXERS CAUSE, YES, I’D PREFER SHE DIDN’T.
