LOL! Why do you guys say EDGES???? It’s HAIRLINE. #SMH. I wonder why GROWN ADULTS nowadays MIMIC the verbiage of TEENAGERS, edges, smh…
12, 14, 16, 18 year-old GIRLS made this term POPULAR in the urban black community. (GHETTO). LOL!

Possibly because it’s typically not referring to the entire hairline so to shorten it and say edges gives people a point of reference/perspective … Perhaps a nickname?

I think its ok to say ‘edges’ love, sometimes something that might have been created not for mainstream use can become so popular that it becomes mainstream and even practical. It might not be right, but it is the best way to get groups of people to understand what you mean. That’s why products for your hairline are called “edge control” instead of “hairline control” 🙂

As you grow and travel in life, you will find that there are many local and regional terms and expressions that work their way into the common lexicon. I’m from Pittsburgh, PA originally and we’ve got many “special terms”. We call cherry vanilla ice cream by the name whitehouse ice cream. A sofa might be a davenport, a couch, or a divan. My Alabama GrandMa called umbrellas , bumpershoots. In addition to hairline and edges, the back neckline area of my scalp was called; kitchen, naps, nape, or fade. There was a time when you could be thrown out of church for using the word “ain’t”, but, common usage got it into the dictionary long ago. Even the english who live in England do not limit themselves to historic language. If you don’t ask “Is the spanner in the boot?” You won’t know if the screwdriver is in the trunk of the car. In short … lighten up. It’s not a character flaw or a lack of education that makes us use different words and expressions. It’s just apart of the fluid nature of language. vive la différence!

There is nothing ghetto about referring to your edges as “edges”. I am 40+ and edges and kitchens has been used since I was a little girl. To each his own.

Irita Alane

Your correct but, most of the products for hair line is called Edge cream ect…

Teresa Link Mathis

Lol…you are ignorant. I’m not calling any names.

Kelly Nechelle Mcgruder

Well my edges r tryna grow back . Thk God.

CityTruck Prod

Simple . . .don’t pull ’em out or try to make them look like ‘curly baby hair edges’.

BlackHairInformation.com. you know I generally choose to use words which might be found in the standard English dictionary. Shortened “nicknames” are understandable for certain situations, but we tend to take a term that is street slang and utilize it as though it is the king’s English. There is also NOTHING wrong with saying HAIRLINE. EVERYONE has one. Edge cream? Never heard of it. But I do utilize different hair preparatory products, hair GEL, HAIR OIL, even HAIR GREASE, ULTRA SHEEN products, etc…LOL! It’s like when I hear our people say they are CONVERSATING with another person. No such word in the English language. CONVERSE Is the correct term. But I understand. I should just jump on the bandwagon or be quiet. LOL! UNDERSTOOD.

Lucy Taylor–my aunt used to teach cosmetology and this is one of the things she taught about while giving a history on hair care. The word edge is in the standard dictionary and one of the meaning states as follows: the area or part away from the middle. Therefore in cosmetology, the “edges” refers to the area of hair closest to your temples and not the crown which is considered the middle. Furthermore, the hairline consists of the border of your hair all the way around (front, back and sides). Also I don’t know where you buy your hair care products but I shop at a beauty supply store and have seen many EDGE products such as Silk Elements Straight Edges Edging Gel or Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Edge Control or Amla Legend Golden Temple Edge Tamer. I could go on as there are plenty more. Also, there are a set of hair clippers called Edge Trimmers made specifically for lining up your “edges” to make them look neater. Don’t take my word for it. You can probably find these products online. So while you might consider the term “juvenile”, the term “edges” is widely used by people of all ages and backgrounds.

I say hairline myself simply because I’ve always said it and I’m not into trendy talk.

Lauren Ralph

Hate seeing lost edges worst look ever

c.e.Brown

Lucy Taylor. I get it, but why bother??? It would be easier, if you asked us all to, “Just get along”…

Well said, I have a similar argument with my childs teacher. Why allow children to call the teacher just Miss? I hate it, lazy teaching which implies that children are not caple of pronouncing a last name. Sheeeeesh!!

Shellisa Williams

We call it edges now. Get over it lol

Valerie Johnson

It’s sad how common it is to see black women with hair loss not only at their hairline but overall from using glue-on products and tight hairstyles.

I’m not sure what black women you’re referring to but 90% of the ones I know have healthy hair. All other cultures experience hair loss too especially from all the hair coloring they do. So when you speak on us, please be specific because we aren’t all bald or going bald.

Conversating is a word in the Webster dictionary. I guess it was used so often they added it. Just like bootyliscious. Look it up.
