Tiffany’s Big Loc Chop: A New Beginning

I have the privilege of knowing one of the original Queens of Poetry, Tiffany, aka, Articulite. She is a phenomenal poet who has been on the poetry scene since 2004. Her signature poem, “Why Do You Call Yourself a Beautician?” is getting raves all over the nation. She is very humble and just a beautiful person inside and out. For almost as long as I’ve known her, she has had these beautiful, long flowing locs. So, to my astonishment when I read on Facebook the she cut them off, I didn’t believe it until I saw the pics for myself. See Articulite’s new look and read about her hair journey below.


Big chop date: August 16, 2011


Why did you decide to go natural?I decided to go natural because I wanted to see the effect my hair would have without a perm.

What made you go the loc route?I decided to get loc’s because that’s something I always wanted to try because I thought it was nice and easy to manage but little did I know i had to maintain that as well lol. 

How long did you have your locs and how long where they when you cut them?
I had my loc’s for 5 full years. My loc’s where pass my shoulders to the middle of my back.

Why did you decide to loc chop?I had a spirtual awakening and decided to cut my loc’s in the month of August. The month of August is the 8th Month which means new Beginning so I wanted to start fresh and I wanted to get rid of the negative hair-energy lol. 

A New Beginning
What are your next hair moves/goals?
My next hair goals for 2011 is maybe wear the fro or maybe be versatile with a few wigs here and there.
