Publisher's Summary

Venus Johnston has a great job and a long-term, live-in boyfriend who happens to be a drop-dead gorgeous doctor. She also has a weekly beauty-parlor date to keep her long, nappy hair slick and straight. But the tedious hours and harsh chemicals in the salon have long grated on Venus. One frustrating day, she trades in the long hair for a dramatically short, natural cut and sends her commitment-balking boyfriend packing. It's a bold declaration of independence and one that has effects she never could have imagined. Reactions from friends and coworkers range from concern to contempt to outright condemnation. When her ex starts dating a voluptuous, long-haired beauty, Venus is forced to question what she really wants out of life. With wit, resilience, and determination, Venus finally learns what true happiness is, on her own terms.


What the Critics Say

"Thomas offers painful but amusing insights into the politics of beauty, black culture, and male-female relationships; her first novel places her in a league with Terry MacMillan and Bebe Moore Campbell." (Booklist)
"Empowering....Thomas refuses to let her characters slide into stereotype, and she keeps the pace fast and funny." (Publishers Weekly)

This was a good read because even though I listened, the narrator did such a good job that I feel like I read it word for word. Anyway, I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters. I also enjoyed the life lesson. Sometimes when u snooze, u loose. Keep up the good work

Loved it

I thought this book was a real good story of love, being with someone who you love, but just going through life opposed to loving someone and living life. Being natural I can relate to some of the issues she dealt with after cutting off her hair. I thought the book was going to be focused only on hair but it wasn't and I enjoyed it. Great story can't wait to start the sequel.
