Not everyone wants to look like a celebrity. It would be nice to see pictures of everyday women sporting hairstyles becoming to them. Pictures of celebrities with all kinds of expensive weaves do me no good. I prefer my own length, but am looking for a hairstyle that will compliment my facial structure. I guess I’ll have to try another site.

BEYONCE DOES NOT HAVE “BLACK” HAIR!!! She has long, expensive fake looking weave!! None of those photos showed black hair. Not all black women wear long curly fake weave!

Very disappointed, yet again another site offering black hair styles and showing black celebrities with fake european weaves, we’re not all fake you know!!!

February 1, 2007 at 3:06 pm
(4) KD says:

Why is everyone against weave??? If you have the real thing then you can wear your own hair in the same styles. The pictures are just examples of hair styles regardless if it’s real or fake!

This doesnt help at all.most black women have shoulder length hair.And most of them dont have straight hair.that is nothing but expensive weave not real hair.

(10) Emily says:

i think that black hair makes people look gothic..but yet it does look good on many people..dark people’s hair does not really look black.more of a dark brown color..but yet..they are darker so they dont’ really have anything else to do about it..so they get a weave..

I came on here looking 4 a style as i am getting my hair cut soon, but this site is no help, there needs to site for real everyday black womam!!! women who want to wear there own hair should be given a choice, there is no choice for us, unless we all get a weave.

(14) Mercedes Fludd says:

OK IT OBVIOUS PEOPLE THAT THIS IS NOT A NATURAL HAIR SITE . SO COMMON SENSE WOULD TELL U THAT MAYBE THESE FEMALES WOULD HAVE STR8 HAIR OR WEAVES . THEY ARE NOT SAYING BEYONCE HAS (BLACK)NATURAL HAIR THEY ARE SAYING BLACK BECAUSE SHE IS AFRICAN AMERICAN. IM PRETTY SURE U MIGHT HAVE PICKED UP ON THAT. IF U DONT LIKE THE SITE THEN FIND A SITE WITH EVERYDAY WOMEN ON IT WHO HAS NATURAL HAIR . DONT STAY HERE AND COMPLAIN BOUT IT .

Ummm…these women are saying that all black women have short hair..and dat if u have long air den u arent black….Beyonce has long hair…I have long hair..does dat mean i’m not black because i have long hair? Most of u out der wear weave..if u r unsatisfied wit da site den more on.

April 7, 2007 at 2:53 pm
(17) dee says:

wow!!! how do you misspell text talk. r u trying to be this ignorant or r u really this dumb. L8tr… mercedes and carid, u 2 should visit the school sites :0( this site is useless, they’re just selling other products; advertising as usual. no real hair tips, anyone can use pictures of celebs from other sites and list them as new hair dos, like celebs know the latest trends. they’re clueless, they pay “stylist” to dress them, which are usually fakers attempting 2B ultra cool. style is individual.

(18) Kim says:

It seems like you have to go out and spend money on a hairstyle book in order to look for a good hairstyle. With the web coming as far as it has you would think it wouldn’t be such a problem to find a website for once that caters to the everyday black woman and what they like to wear, whether its weave or natural hair, not Beyonce and her million dollar hairstyles. Its just not realistic to the 9-5 woman.

June 7, 2007 at 10:02 pm
(19) Tina says:

I agree with most of previous writers, it would be nice to show photos of both natural hair and weaves, at least that way you cater for a varity of people.

Everyone looks nice…If u want to wear your natural hair then wear it, but don’t knock the next person cause they want to wear weave.

(21) Memphis Chic says:

I agree with the majority here. I don’t have anything against weaves but those pics were not what we consider natural hairstyles for black women so don’t advertise them as such. Those who don’t understand that are those who are trying to portray this hollywood image when we were only looking for nice, natural, real, everyday hairstyles. And we as black women can look just as good with that. We don’t always have to mock a star’s hairstyle to look good. And this link was advertised as “Photo Galleries of Black Haircuts” – NOT.

I LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE HAIR STYLES AND HAIR CUTS I’M GOING TO GET ONE JUST LIKE THEM….AND people, really, no matter what you do you’re mimacking a celebrity anyways… like really when you go to get your hair cut, there’s already a celebrity with that hair cut… think about it before you say something. These people try really hard and I don’t see you guys making a effort of it! byebye

(26) belinda says:

Black people come in all shapes and sizes and colors and hair lenghts. It’s one of the things that makes us so beautiful. To say that you have to be ONE way in order to be black is well, ignorant and silly. I’m black whether I have straight hair or kinky, light skinned or dark, am educated and literate, or the opposite. We need to get out of thinking that in order to be “black” we have to look/be a certain way. It keeps us segregated and divided. And black women, stop putting each other down and treating each other bad. The world is on our shoulders, beating us down and you mean to tell me we don’t even have each other to turn to? We’re all we got.

Why is it so hard to find a good black hair-cut gallery online??? Jesus Christ. I dont want to look like Tyra Banks, i dont have the time to put in all those weave tracks every morning. LMAO. I want a hair cut. plain and simple. Geez. These are not REAL every-day black hairstyles/weaves. The crap in hollywood is exactly that, CRAP IN HOLLYWOOD. Not real life. Psh =\

As a people we have to bring eachother up,and leave our insecurities behind. Some of us have long hair and som short as do ALL HUMAN BEINGS. We have different textures of hair as do ALL HUMAN BEINGS. We have to get over this hosility so that others can be disproved.As soon as we become positve tward eachother and leave all of the negitive behind we can worktogether tward solutions.

Much Love,

(32) May says:

I aggree with most of you. It’s not that the hairstyles displayed aren’t pretty – its just that it offers no variety and it’s nothing new. I came to the site looking for cute SHORT styles – meaning short (not medium-length) hairstyles. I am switching from a natural to perm and I haven’t found a site that actual shows a VARIETY of SHORT hairstyles as advertised. Anyway, I shouldn’t be surprised.

(36) colleen lewis says:

I’m African American and I am honestly disgusted with so many of my people wearing so much weave. Im not against styling your hair with some extionsions. But everday in high school I see ridiculous hairstyles. The most popular one is short weave with 2 different colors, black and brown.Not only is it tacky but you can tell from a mile away that its fake. I have only worn weave no more than 4 times. And all those four times I had my hair in braids or kinky twists. Which helps people with my kind of kiny and curly hair grow. Never had I have to glue, sow, or do anything else. Because I usually wear my hair in braids, hot combed straight, or in yes”ONE BIG AFRO PONYTAIL OR 2 AFRO PONYTAILS”.

I ALSO THINK INSTEAD OF JUST PUTTING UP PICTURES OF AFRICAN AMERICAN MODELS WEARING WEAVE FOR A HAIRSTLYE TREND. HOW ABOUT HAIRSTLYES WITH THEIR REAL HAIR OR THEIR REAL HAIR BRAIDED WITH EXTENSIONS OR TWISTS. IT LOOKS A WHOLE LOT BETTER.

(39) Girlfriend says:

First of all this is for Emily. FYI, we are black women, not dark people. Second of all, There are black people with very black colored-hair. Third, there are numerous reasons we wear weave, the fact tyhat our hair is a certain color is not one of them. Because of our hair texture there is no limit to what we can do to our hair, and there is no limit as to why we do what we do.

Emily! first of all it’s black women or african-american women! Second, not all women get weaves and if we do then damn it we payed for it so it is OURS!!! And remind me why your on this site again!?

(43) sindabay says:

let’s face the facts,,, most black women have weaave and that’s because we don’t have hair. I for one don’t have much of a long hair,,so i’m not gonna be walking around town with a bald looking haircut…i’m just looking for a style dat won’t look overly fake..

August 7, 2008 at 2:32 pm
(44) Melmal says:

How sad for those of you who think think that as women of color our only options is either a “baldy” or a weave. There must be something in between that makes us look and feel good about our selves. I don’t think anyone is “hatin’” on Beyonce…but she is hardly the typical black woman. She extremely wealthy and has a staff of people who are there to help her look good. Futhermore, anyone with that type of schedule and lifestyle would have no hair left on her head is she let people manipulate her natural hair. I’m sure her weave/wigs are in part in place to protect her natural hair.

I am also not thrilled with the styles that I’ve seen on the webistes. Looks like me and my stylist are going to have to have a heart to heart.

(47) Devon says:

Well I am a black woman and I have long hair—all my own. Occasionally I may decide I don’t want to comb my hair and I’ll get a pony tail from the store or I’ll get it braided. I’ve even had a sew in before. It’s not that my natural hair is short because I’m black or I want to look like Beyonce or Tyra when I get extentions or straighten my hair. I just like variety, and frankly don’t want to be bothered with my hair in the morning. Sew in’s and weave allow me to get up and go for a month, sometimes two and keep heat out of it for a while. I search for different styles all the time. I’m with the other women on here who are against tearing women down for a difference in opinion on hair. Whatever you do to your hair to look good is your business. Find exactly what you are looking for, nobody else can. And if this site is not for you find one that is. But I know why I wear weave sometimes and it has nothing to do with Hollywood and looking white or being black and my hair is too short. It’s about convenience to me. I love all my sista’s, hope you do too.

I am very disappointed that every time I go to look for a short natural unpermed unweaved hairstyle they cant be found , what happend to the sites that have styles for women that dont perm or wear weave the low hair styles . Got any info please leave some sites. Thanks

(50) sweetie says:

Why do genetically bald headed black women assume that all black women are genetically baldheaded? NEWS FLASH!!! There are an enormous amount of women of color who has long hair!!! And although I agree with what some of you have to say about not being able to find any natural hair styles, everyone must know that your hair does not define you. I know alot of sistas that sport the natural and dont know a thing about who they are and what it stands for because their actions does not display a sense of black pride. They would be the last ones that I would use as a representation of black woman pride because their behavior may be more unbecomming. Looks can be deceiving. Get a grip.

(55) C'mon says:

… whats the problem if a black woman opts for weaves than natural, dreads or bald? That makes her less black? Grey perhaps? Keep in mind “I am not my hair.. I’m the soul that lives within…”

(56) DeDe says:

I dont see the problem with weave @ all. WTF does it matter. If it makes u look good, then go for it. U think a man, that thinks u the finest thing in the world is gon reject u cuz u got fake hair? Everybody not born with natural beauty so do whatever works for u. PPL need to shut up about this whole “weave is bad”. Beyonce look good with hers dont she? Who gives a hell.

Hi, We all know that there are some african american women who have natural long hair. But remeber corcassion women wore falls,and pieces for years and they were never critized. I like a lot of women of color had long hair and due to chemicals,stress or medication have now loss there hair.I think weaves are a blessings.
For women like me,and beleive me they are out there. I myself do a lot of research on weaves and take the time too make it look realistic and beautiful. Remember TV has depicted long hair to be the most beautiful thing in the world. Our black men are looking at these images as well as out youth and want the same thing or want there women to wear a weave.It is all about choice,but I think as African American women we are so quick to judge each other. As I said before some where them for Fashion some for medical reasons as long as it looks nice. I think we need to stop being so harsh on our own people.

Thank you Monica. That site did help. I have long natural curly hair. I just recently cut it all off.

Hair product suggestions ladies??? Thank you in advance!

(63) SSS says:

WOW! Much ado about a hair-do! It’s interesting that so many have commented saying that weave or no weave, straight or natural, it doesn’t matter, it’s just hair; but all this back and forth and tempers flairing should let us know that it is a big deal to a lot of people, especially black women! Let’s face it: it most cultures, for at least a few millenia, hair has been one of the primary symbols of a woman’s beauty. And that still has not changed. For black women, as part of a group that has been colonized, oppressed, denegrated, and disrespected by people who don’t look like us (and who whose hair doesn’t look like ours), it’s always important that we step back and question where our ideals are coming from and whose standard of beauty we are judging ourselves against.

August 12, 2009 at 6:01 pm
(64) SSS says:

And another thing- the amount of money we spend on hair products and actually buying other people’s hair to put on our own heads has gotten ridiculous!! Black folks complain about being po’, are last in home ownership, small business ownership, retirement savings, college funds for our children, being able to afford health insureance, etc. etc., but we got billions of $$ every year to spend on hair that God saw fit NOT to give us. Yeah, I went there…for all the religious folks out there. Just think about it: If the Supreme Creator, in his infinite wisdom, thought that kinky hair was the right accessorie for Black African people, why we spend so much time tryna undo what God did?

September 26, 2009 at 11:55 am
(65) mya says:

I find it offensive and racist for one race to decide whats best for another. Braiding and weaving have been a pert of african culture for generations. A large number of caucasian models and celebs now sport weaves and braids. Weaving in Afican culture has evolved and now includes long and short works of what i can only call art. its genius.you wont appreciate it if you dont understand it. Its not for everybody. we can never have a consensus on it.

October 27, 2009 at 1:09 pm
(66) K says:

Mya, please show me a traditional African hair style that looks like Beyonce’s hair.

SSS, you are one of the few people speaking the truth on this blog. I find it interesting that we have such high rates of obesity, heart disease and other health problems, but we are concerned about fake hair and nails to look good. Ladies, let’s be honest, can anyone really look good without good health– of body and hair? If you lack the confidence to wear your hair in its most healthy and natural state, you will never really attain beauty. Beauty basics– great health (diet, fitness), great mind (learning new things), and great spirit (confidence) are the only foolproof beauty secrets. Everything else is an ugly (and most of it is quite fugly) costume. Save it for Halloween.

This blog post (written by a white woman) promotes “black hair styles” that compromise black hair health. Perms, weaves and extensions are causing an epidemic of receding hair lines. Now, many of us have to move on from weave and perm to wigs. It’s not sexy. It’s ugly and stupid. You can’t go swimming with a weave. I know women who don’t work out because they are afraid to sweat their perm out. Do black women think they can compete with women of other races who take care of their health and have confidence in their own beauty? Um, take a guess, boo boo. No!

It’s sad. Our money goes to Whites and Asians to buy their hair products because we are afraid of short and nappy hair. We pour chemicals with the content of Drano on our heads to get stingy hair and our skin looks like sh!t with stringy hair covering it. It’s gross. You’re brainwashed. Get over it. A good man (a grown man) once told me the three things he finds sexy in a woman (his wife): good health, good sense, and good credit. Everything else is just garbage.

If I may respond,

I am the editor who chooses the photos for these galleries. Yes, I’m a “white woman,” but my race has nothing to do with the photo selection. Our photo agency is Getty and we use images of celebrities and public figures for our hair galleries. It may be unfortunate, but many of these women choose weaves.

Because of the response on this comment board, I have updated the galleries to include images of more natural hairstyles, which you will notice if you take a look at these photo galleries.

And for what it’s worth, the black hairstyles guide (who is African-American) uses the same images I do. Perhaps the blame can be placed on the public figures — women who chose NOT to go the natural route.

Cheers,
Julyne

(70) DaeDae says:

Black natural hair is so versitile (sp?), we need to appreciate out hair alot more, taking care of it. I have seen many black women with short to medium hair and it really healthy; yet mixed race women with manky, looking dry and brittle long hair. Its not about the length, its about how you take care of it.

Weaves are good, as long as you don’t start acting like you grew it yourself, flicking it and rolling your head like you are the exorcist (sorry Beyonce).

We forget that when we look at a “celebrity”, we are looking at a marketing product, not an individual with responsibilities or hands ful of people who tell them what to wear, say or think.

Many “black” celebrities don’t have their real hair. Think about all the women who experience hair breakage because they wear too many weaves, bigs, etc; their hair breaks everytime. Celebrities are no different, if anything worse, because they HAVE to maintain the image set by their labels, companies and agents to keep you buying their product and them in their comfort zone.
Its like people buying clothes from a naked man.
Slaves to fashion are exactly that: slaves.

2. PEOPLE LIKE ´´EMILY & SINDABAY AND MERCEDES FLUDD AND A FEW MORE, WEARING A WEAVE DOESN´T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR HAIR AND THAT´S WHY WE HAVE IT ON OUR HEADS! A WEAVE IS JUST ANOTHER TYPE OF HAIRSTYLING. 3.WHY ARE BLACK WOMEN SO CRITISIZED FOR USING WEAVES, BUT NOT WHITE WOMEN AND WOMEN OFF OTHER RACES???? 4. I FIND IT VERY CONTRADICTORY THAT THE VERY PEOPLE WHO CRITISIZE US BLACK WOMEN FOR USING SO CALLED ´´FAKE HAIR ´´ARE THE VERY PEOPLE WHO PICK ON US WHEN WE TRY TO GO NATURAL AND WEAR OUR OWN HAIR! HOW MANY OF YOU BLACK WOMEN OUT THERE HAVEN´T HEARD COMMENTS LIKE:´´WHAT´S THAT BRILLOPAD GROWING ON YOUR HEAD?!´´ OR YOU NEED TO TONE THAT HAIR DOWN´´ OR AFRO IS SO GROSE AND UGLY HAIR?? 5. YES I AGREE AS USUAL THERE WERE NO GOOD EXAMPLES OF NATURAL AFRICAN HAIRSTYLES UNLESS YOU WANT TO LOOK EUROPEAN! 6. THAT´S NOT BEYONCES NATURAL HAIR! INTRESTING THAT A LIGHT-SKINNED BLACK WOMAN WHO APPARENTLY BLEACHES HER SKIN(DON´T KNOW IF IT´S TRUE THOUGH, ONLY HEARD RUMOURS) AND ALWAYS DYE´S HER HAIR BLOND! IS CONSIDERED TO BE A ROLEMODEL FOR BLACK WOMEN???

I agree with the other ladies that these celebrities do not represent black hair. A majority of them, if not all, have expensive weaves that are not always becoming of the “real” black hair. Don’t get me wrong, weaves are great for whatever, but when catering to the “normal” people, just be real. We all know that Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Wendy Welch and a great many other ladies do not model their own hair (at least not home grown anyway).
