A woman’s hair is her pride regardless of her ethnicity, but for African American women it is different. It forms an integral part of their look, style, personality, and culture. Look at someone from Jamaica, for example, you can easily notice them from their trademark hairstyles, now take a look at Indians and so on, they are all noticeable from their hair. The same can be said about African American women and their personalities. Be it hair extensions, hair weaves, black hair, kinky virgin hair, anything really, it all plays a big part in bringing out a woman’s alter ego. It’s that ‘kink in my hair kind of vibe,’ that surge in confidence, the flow of power that comes with knowing that one is looking really good. But that is not always the case, a bad hair day is the worst thing that can ever happen to an African American woman, and that brings us to one of the biggest crimes a man can ever commit: messing with a black woman’s hair in public!
But is there a relation between hair and personalities?
Go to any party or club and look around, now go to a wedding or formal gathering and look around. Is the type of hairstyles you see in the two events the same? Probably not. In fact, chances are they are very different. You are likely to meet women with funky and adventurous hairstyles in the clubs while the classy hair weaves and extensions are reserved for the reputable events.
Different hairstyles bring different feelings and it is these feelings that translate into different personalities that we meet each and every day.
