CRINGE – Crimes Of Hair Fashion That You Should Not Be Committing

I hate the word ratchet, but when I see hairstyles that are a little tasteless that’s the only word I can think of to describe them. I’m sure at one time or other we have all committed one of these hair crimes (who hasn’t kept braids in for a little too long) but sometimes the crimes get so brazen that someone just has to say something.

If you hate the word ratchet like I do, then forgive me now because I may be using it more than once. You are in for a treat (or an eyesore) as I give you my picks for what I think are the worst crimes of hair fashion.

Visible Wig Line

The whole world and their mother wants to wear lace wigs these days but they simply don’t look good on everyone. It is all about looking as natural and seamless as possible when choosing a wig. Why then do some women want to make it as plainly obvious as possible that they are wearing one?

The wig line is that area of the wig that is supposed to mimic your own natural hair line, but let’s face it, some of the lower quality ones will never look natural. Having said that, how natural a wig looks really depends among other things on the skill of the person applying it. There are ratchet looking $25.99 and $799.99 lace wigs out there.

Rule of thumb, if you have a naturally low forehead/hairline no amount of talent will make a lace wig look great on you and it’s time to to admit that they are simply not for you. If you can’t make a lace wig look natural, pick one that has bangs where it is easy to hide the wig line. Alternatively a partial weave, a fall or a quick weave may be the best solution for you. They look a bit more natural and a lot less hideous.

    Bottom right is not bad. The rest are creative, but not something I would rock. But I’m down with people expressing themselves any way they want.

    It’s not just these four styles, it’s an entire article/slide show from bad lace fronts to tiny ponytails.

    They look quite editorial but then again I have seen people leaving Celebrity Seaborn’s salon on Youtube sporting styles like these so I’m guessing some women like extreme styling.

    These are beautiful in their own way and everything is not for everyody so if these styles don’t apply-let em’ fly. But…I bet most of the negative comments are from fat broads w/low confidence and jacked-up busted weaves anyway.

    What Kimberly Powell? The comment you made was just plain ugly. So I guess you must be ugly as well. Oh see you just got mad at my comment didn’t you. If so I have made my point. Don’t give if you can’t take. Just saying.
