Women hairstyles with weave
This is a trend we’ve seen happen to a number of kids recently — including a Texas cheerleader who was kicked off of her team a couple weeks ago for refusing to straighten her hair. And it’s especially damaging to girls of color, girls who are often told their natural beauty isn’t good enough when held up to societal beauty standards. “My heart is breaking for my niece and all the little girls like her who already know that there is an unspoken ideal for ‘good hair,’ who already know that the darker your skin, the more undesirable you are [led] to feel, that people will automatically write you off because of the way you look,” Quansah writes in her Facebook post. The principal should’ve been more concerned with the young girl’s education, rather than her looks, she continues.
