The Great Debate: Celebs Weigh In On Blue Ivy’s Hair
She’s probably one of the nation’s most talked about two year olds. And one of the more talked about aspects of her look and life is her often-untamed hair. Little Blue Ivy is the adorable daughter of power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z. And while we’re sure nearly every facet of her life is planned and put together—can we say college fund, and trust money—one part of Blue’s life that’s notoriously unkempt is her hair.
It’s been a much-gossiped-about part of Blue’s life since she made her debut to the world. Often left in a messy fro, every now and then, the Internet will go into a frenzy over her stands when a new picture of she and her family hit the net.
And while many celebs haven’t given their two cents about baby Carter’s tresses, Tamar Braxton, Keke Wyatt and Syleena Johnson—all mommies themselves—weighed in on the topic during a recent interview with Ryan Cameron on his V103 radio show.
About Blue’s hair, Keke says she doesn’t mind a natural look, “but you still got to grease natural and comb natural. Amen. And wash and condition and then you won’t have the beady-age.”
In classic Tamar form the singer spilled the tea on her opinion of the youngest of the Carter clan’s hair, “I just think it just needs product, that’s it. No shade!”
Syleena compared the tots tresses to old school rapped Ol’ Dirty Bastard and singer Terence Trent D’Arby.
It’s hard to form a real opinion on Baby Blue’s hair. On the one hand you can understand how a two-year-old’s hair can be (and is typically always) all over the place. Kids are incredibly active at this age and some little girls don’t like things such as bows, ponytails or even hats on their heads, so as soon as you can get them in…they’re ripping them out. And further, the amount of concern and talk about something as simple as a toddler’s hair is mildly excessive.
There is, however, validity of the argument that some simple products and protective styles, such as braids or twists, at night can avoid much of Blue’s—well, hair blues. And for the amount of money each of her parent’s make, she can easily have a personal a hairstylist, should her mom or dad not want to fool with it.
Her parents have remained publically unbothered by the frank, sometimes mean comments over their daughter’s hair, so much so that they continuously appear in public with her hair in a bedhead-esque ‘fro.
