Shaped & Tapered Natural Hair Cuts. In case you haven’t noticed, a new natural hairstyle has hit the scene, and it’s the look of shaped and tapered cuts.
When natural hair hit the radar back in 2009, it was all about length. Many women wanted to achieve lengths of super long strands which they couldn’t achieve with their previous relaxed texture. Fast forward to present day, many naturals have manged to obtain super long lengths and are now ready to chop it all off yet again for something short, fierce and freeing… hence came the birth of shaped and tapered cuts.
Natural hair is no longer about length, but more so about self expression. Be creative with your natural texture and rock whatever look you desire. The new shaped and tapered cuts are short, to the point and feature different variations such as Mohawks, longer curls in the front while leaving the back shaven down or tapered, and you can even mix up shorter cuts with hues of ombre & bold colors. Look below to see the many different ways you can shape and taper your natural hair.
