I went to an all-girls Catholic high school, and it being Montreal, my friends and classmates were a wide mix of colors and cultures: black, white, brown — and one of them, beige. Yes, beige. There was one biracial girl who often said — insisted, really — that she be referred to as beige. My face was scrunched up when I first heard it too. Now, decades later, with my own young, mixed-race child, I wonder what his answer will be when he bumps into The Inevitable Question: What Are You? So far, at 8 years old, my son hasn't shown any signs of disquiet or fluster around the topic of his race.
So I gathered some pictures of other mixed black women that have pointy noses as well. Back in freshman year, I just got tired of dealing with it and chopped it to my ears, but kept it stacked and layered. Layers a really a huge help it keeping it untangled - get the layers trimmed regularly! It thins the hair out, too.
