Short Natural Hair Rocks + Link Up!

Short Natural Hair Rocks

I won’t go so far as to call myself a natural hair guru, but I am definitely along for a the ride of a true natural hair journey. Now that I’ve actually gone ahead and cut my hair, I can honestly say that in order to truly love the hair with which you were born, you must must love it from the root.

I say this because I’ve been natural for a VERY long time. We’re talking over 15 years (I wrote about it in this post HERE.) So you would think that within all that time I would have learned to love my hair as it is. But that ain’t so!


Since I never cut  off my relaxed hair, but rather transitioned to natural hair keeping my length all the while, I never really learned about my hair. Instead, when I did wear it in it’s natural state I was consumed with showing off length.   As many of us know, tightly curled hair shrinks and shrinks, especially if you have 4C curls. So even when my hair was almost waist lenth when straught, it was easily chin length when wet. I kid you not! So I was ALWAYS manipulating the hair with methods and products to elongate it. And you know what happened? My hair hated it, and started snapping off EVERY which way in protest.


And now, I’m here. Short. Natural. Fierce. And LOVING myself in a way I never thought possible. I get excited to do my hair in the morning. I’m not buying new products everyday. And what’s more, my curls are shiny, and bouncy and well, beautiful every day of the week, even on rainy days!


If you are considering taking the plunge and joining team natural, I encourage you to cut, not transition. The experience of having short natural hair is one you won’t soon forget. BTW, The lipstck I’m wearing is the Nars Audacious Lipstivk in the color “Angela.” Buy yours HERE. Click HERE for my complete review of Nars Audacious Lipstick

Well Hello! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a lipstick-loving, high heel junkie, mom, and wife. When I’m not here bringing you the latest in beauty, fashion, hot topics, and bits and pieces of my life with my family, you can find me over on youtube swatching lipsticks and sharing my latest natural hairstyles. Make sure you also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat under my brand name Lisa A La Mode. I’m a real person. I promise.

  1. You are looking super fabulous Lisa! This hair cut suits you so well! I cut my hair last April,totally bald and now I’m considering letting grow back in short sassy style…I might need your advice on which and how lol! I love the lipstick by the way! I’ve always been afraid of wearing bold lipstick beside a red one, but your collections make me think I can try it too :-). Before I leave, Awesome job on the new design too! You go girl!!! 🙂

  2. LISA! Your hair is EVERYTHING! I watched your newest video last night and it too was EVERYTHING! I am so happy for your new journey and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you. I am wishing you much happiness and success. I am so proud to be your BBS (Blogger Baby Sister)! I really hope that we get to meet sometime this year or next year!

  3. Yay! Your link up is back! Girl I so love your new bold cut with the touch of color. I too transitioned and only have been fully natural for almost 2 years. I love my hair in it’s curly state. I recently got a silk press and couldn’t wait to go back to rocking a twist out. My only issue are my thin edges they certainly keep me from trying so many styles I love 🙁 You are so right though, it is amazing when you learn to love your hair in it’s natural state!

  4. Gorgeous! Love your curls and your makeup! I mainly rock twist outs, but I have resolved to work on my wash ‘n’ go this summer. #BLMGirl

  5. I just love this, Lisa! I tried going natural and did so by doing a big chop. I stayed natural for just two years before returning back to relaxed hair. After reading this, I’ve realized that I never truly embraced being natural. Yes, I did the big chop but I never learned to love it and treat it properly so it didn’t thrive. You’ve definitely given me something to think about. Thanks for sharing.

    And this lipstick is definitely fierce! Love it!

    1. Thanks, Kishina! I was scared at first too, but I LOOOVE it. I feel so chic! No bad hair days and you always look polished. DO IT!
