so apparently one of the actresses in The Help rocked her TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) to the Oscars. and that buffoon Wendy Williams made a statement that natural hair is NOT ok to wear to formal occassions. i don't have the links to the articles as i saw this on facebook this morning on my newsfeed. but anyway. so that made me think...why do people think wearing your natural hair is not ok for weddings, award shows etc? i got my hair pressed for Big momma's wedding as her maid (abi na matron?) of honour (and the phone calls about "sister what are you goign to do with your hair?" "sister, how are you doing your hair for the wedding? you sabi say you be chief bridesmaid" were a good indication of something. hahahahahaha) but my hair is longer now and my hair dresser does all these fun stuff with my hair now. i especially loved Ms Ebbe's hair in the wedding pictures posted in the gallery. she rocked her natural hair and looked absolutely amazing. so...why do people think natural hair is not ok for formal occassions? why do we have to go all long and flowy and silky with it?
