It's hard to say what is current and what isn't. Most areas tend to have their own style. I have yet to go any place outside of my city and see the exact same style that I see here. Everywhere you go there are trendsetters and trend-followers. Trendsetters tend to leave their hair in the hands of the stylist that is up on the latest. They like to change up often and that requires the need for a very good stylist. The trend followers tend to follow whatever is goin on in Hollywood or NYC. They look at the fashion magazines and copy their favorite stars, etc. In other words, they doin what everybody else is doing.
Now, what you need to stay current is a bomb stylist. If you have a good hair stylist they will be up on what's current. If you go to the same stylist each time, they will get to know you and your hair and be able to help you to decide what trends look best on you if you want a change. Cause just like perfume, Honey everybody can't wear everything. So, in actuality you do have to wear what looks good on you, just like you wear what smells good on you. I know you ain't about to walk out of your house smellin of Eau De Funkin Stuff. So if you got a big fishbowl head, then maybe the short style that is "current" will not be very cute on you. Followers are dated. Trendsetters are ahead of their time. Everybody else could care less about what you or anybody else thinks. Get in where you fit in and you are only as fabulous as your strut Honey. Confidence looks good on everybody. So, it doesn't matter how trendy you lookin. If you don't know it and walk it out, then nobody will even notice.
Then there are those like me who could care less about what the next person is doing. I'm fabulous in everything that is "ME". I neither set trends nor follow them. Being fabulous as I am, I stand apart no matter what I do and you best believe my strut is a mean one.
