With the summer heat in full affect and many ladies wavering between their decision to go ahead and be bold with a new cut or stick to their lengthy locks, there are still some ladies who are staying true to their length and keeping up with their long coif. As the avid Essence reader I am, I was looking over their piece (yes, again!) on Gabrielle Union's rejuvenated confidence and fierce new cut. One comment she made was"I can already tell that people take you a little bit more seriously when they're not distracted by long curly locks". My question to you Ladies is: Does a shorter, more mature look portray confidence, professionalism, and sophistication more so than a long flowing mane? Or, is there simply no correlation none-what-so-ever?
