LOL!! 

Ok - we can start with hair.  How long is yours?  I was reading somewhere that professional/corporate women shouldn't have hair past their shoulders.  What do you think?

i got you E, that is if you wanna look like a soccer mom with 2 kids that drives a range  ;D

lol.  I was going more for the edgy, driven, 'hot mama' look

okay, i understand....you're all roxie's :'(

lmao

I think long hair on a black woman can really work to her advantage because for some odd reason they don't expect us to have any hair.

Ok E.  I get the picture.  So I guess I won't suggest putting your hair in a ponytail on the side with a gelled down, shellacked bang like hers either. 

How about some nice soft layers and a long bang swept to one side?

Pearl....that is so true!!

what do you guys think about braids?  I don't know if I have the time or patience to rock a perm and BELIEVE me, E needs the creamy crack.

LOL @ creamy crack!!

Braids can be a nice, versatile option.  Just be sure that they don't do them too tight around your edges, or your hair will break off.  Get the skinny ones - that way you can pin them up, wear them down, curl them and wear a wide variety of styles.

Avoid the big, dooky-like, fat ones, leaving them in for 18 months or getting them done with bright colored hair.  These would be major fashion violations and your BLSD buddies would be forced to issue citations!
