Respectability in Black Hair

It is extraordinary in its own way. It is an art. It takes on its own persona. Hair allows us as people to wear our own feelings at times. It can represent a chronic mood or even a new beginning. There are a variety of styles to choose from and they are all different in their own unique way. There are fros, wigs, weaves, braids, twists, locs, relaxed, etc. We haven’t even scratched the surface of styles nor history behind black hair as a movement.

Dating back to the times of the Egyptians, we learn that our hair is sacred in many ways(Alexa, google if the Egyptians were black…..and the verdict is THEY WERE). Often times, their hair represented royalty. During that time, many slaves and servants were not allowed to shave their heads or wear wigs. This suggests to us that shaving of the head and wearing wigs are a sign of upper echelon, the elite(“She’s Royal, Eyy, So Royal Eyy. I want you in my life.”, let me stop). And to my fellas, the Egyptians also had beard wigs. For all my brothers out here sporting the beard wig, you have some divine representation as well.

During today’s natural hair movement, many of the styles worn are free-flowing and energetic. To some, they are seen as unprofessional; a preconceived notion that the hair is not being taken care of. Far from the truth, many men and women of color have openly struggled with wearing their simple natural styles out in professional settings subjecting themselves to more pleasurable straight hairstyles. Kinky Curly or Straight, these styles are not meant to please the masses but to please the individual.  We must come to a point where people start giving credit where it is due.

Here at NickyGotBundles, we believe that hair is an art form and should be treated as such. It should be embraced as one of the most powerful forms of self-expression. We pride ourselves on sticking to our core values; Providing top-notch customer service, quality hair, on-going consistency, and an authentic connection between company and client through blog posts and other personable tactics. To all my Conrad’s, thanks for making it this far and remember how beautiful you are. Please continue to support as we will be giving you real facts, opinions, and objections.
