Color Me A Baddie: When Black Girls Have Fun With Hair Color

I once read a very thought-provoking article on Black Girl Long Hair about how Black women are judged for the choices they make when it comes to their hair — particularly, when it comes to the colors they put in their hair. While White women are seen as fun and just being quirky and experimental when they decide to try a funky shade on the tips of their hair or all over, as the author pointed out, when Black women try to play with colors, we can be seen as appearing “ghetto.” Talk about a double standard.

But who has time the time or energy to stay a plain Jane? If you want to play with color, whatever your hair, the texture of it or skin color, I say go for it! There are plenty of women who have already thought outside the box when it comes to colors for their strands. Check them out for inspiration!
