Short Natural Hair (TWA) Inspiration
The TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro), or very short cropped natural hair, is often the first stop for a natural’s hair journey (click here to find out why I big chopped). But sometimes we find there’s no reason to travel further down the road. The TWA can be a versatile, sexy, fun, funky expression of a woman’s personal style. Whether we play with color, fades, parts, or designs, the TWA looks amazing on any and all face shapes. And don’t let anyone tell you that the TWA isn’t office appropriate! The following bloggers show you how you can take your TWA from the office to the runway and even these streets.

Show us, and tell us, how you rock your TWA. Have you recently big chopped, or is the TWA your go to hairstyle? Do you prefer a defined look, a clean shape up, a tapered fro, or do you like the more earthy vibe? Let’s discuss! Until next time, much love.
I’m a 30-something, fun loving blogger who enjoys makeup, plus size fashion, and all things girly, glam, and fabulous! I am a naturalista as well as an advocate for paleo eating (AIP). While much of my focus is on beauty, I will be chronicling my weight loss and diet, as well as my natural hair journey. I hope that I can inspire women to give themselves some TLC. Life is so fleeting. We have to remember to take time to enjoy it.
