A haircut can transform your entire disposition. You can walk into a barbershop an average person and within the hour you develop the sauce. You now have it. Obama could walk past you in the moments after you leave the shop and it wouldn’t matter because he doesn’t have the sauce, you do. It’s that simple. The politics of Black hair is consumed by a conversation on others perception of it. We seldom allow space to speak on one of it’s most important qualities. Liberation. Our hair, the black barbershop, a fade–gives you all-encompassing resolute freedom to be unapologetically you in a unfree society.
