I will also share that I finally had the guts to wear this style to work. I've been struggling with what styles are appropriate for work and which ones are not. I've always considered the afro non work compliant...but with this much hair on my head...I decided to step into my uncomfortable zone and try it out. I received positive feedback, and had to demonstrate 1) how long my hair really was by stretching out a piece and 2) show how I pat this Freddie D fro into submission. LOL!
I honestly felt EXTREMELY LIBERATED that day!!! I had to pat myself on the back.
Check it out!
Getting to the final result (pictured below) consisted of these simple steps:
1 - picking the hair out
2 - making a side part
3 - forming a shape
Time: 10 - 15 minutes (tops!)
The first Freddie D Fro. Notice the hair tapered at the neck.
Check out the side part!! That's what makes this look so fresh!
Here is the work version! The back is not as tapered, but still very shapely.
Peace and love!
