I can't believe this woman's friend was so serious about her friend's hair! Having a "talk" with her because she doesn't like how she does her hair? How shallow!

I know I read the article and got pissed off on the author's behalf. Her mom dogs on her hair, her sister gives her straightening irons...she's surrounded by rude people! I'd probably get quite snarky with anyone who intervened with me and said, "Well, AYLI, your color---you know it is kind of fake...and that length? Um, no offense, but you look like a redheaded soccer mom." Yeah, they'd be wearing a size-8 up their butt in pretty short order.

Curly hair can be quite pretty, and whether she wears her hair natural or not shouldn't be anyone else's business. Too bad she didn't post some before and after pictures. I'm sure her hair was nice both ways, but straight hair doesn't work for everyone.

EDITED for Freudian slip...

"When it gets humid, it's almost a Jewfro," Johanna is saying with brutal frankness. I blanch. For a Jew, my hair is not that curly.

Hmm...Does anyone else find this offensive?
I'm speaking as a straight-haired, redheaded Jewish girl, of course...

well, prince...i'll give you that in europe you're more likely to find some natural blondes...

i was just quoting one of my friends who is a hairstylist and always jokes about that...ny being such a melting pot, a natural blonde is hard to come by...although..'blondes' are everywhere...

i was speaking aboout ny because that's where the article was written... my apologies to all the flaxen-haired beauties out there

"I have always found it morally wrong; shouldn't you stick with what God gave you, refuse to deny your ethnic heritage by pretending to be something you're not? New York is full of curly-haired brunette Jewish girls who've reinvented themselves as poker-straight blond streaky preppies. And yet ... I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror: this morning's greasy application of Secret Agent Flawless Finishing Crème is struggling hopelessly against my tendency to pouf up into a, well, a Jewfro."

I am really not liking that term...

Yeah, I found the term kind of offensive, too. I'm not really so sure why, but it just rubbed me the wrong way. Some of my family is Jewish (I'm non-religious) and we've mostly got kind of boring, slightly-wavy/mostly straight light-brown hair. *yawn* Well, I dye mine a fairly obnoxious auburn shade, but that is because I don't like my haircut much, so I color it to make it more interesting.

i dont think i'll go through the article but from what i read here, i'd say its gross and lame to generalise hair texture regarding race..
any race 'branding' could make me go

i'd never get hysterical about hair, seems weird that people can write whole articles on something like this.. waste of energy

lena's on target...it's a fluff piece given to a young writer...she's trying to get some attention by using what she hopes is a catchy phrase or term...not really worth spending too much time on...

After years of the 'why don't you look like a leprechaun' comments, I have to agree.
