Lace Front Wigs: The Real Epidemic Afflicting Black Women
I will be the first to admit, I’ve watched For The Love of a Beaver several times, maybe one too many times, but that’s besides the point. I always wondered why these women were willing to subject themselves to embarrassment for the love of a beaver who’s biggest claim to fame was getting his knob slobbed on by Kim Kardashian. Sure Ray J may have had a few songs, and a few sitcom appearances, but no one was checking for his ass until the infamous homemade porno.
But I digress. This post isn’t about Ray J’s penis, but something a lot more serious, and an epidemic that is affecting black women every where.
F*CKED UP LACE FRONT WIGS, which I’d like to refer to as Lace Frontitis!
Forget about this supposed “I’m A Single Black Woman Woe Is Me” epidemic, the real crisis sweeping the nation are lace front hairlines that start at the eyebrows!
Last night as I was watching Brandy & Ray J’s show, or Ray J’s & Brandy’s show, whatever, I couldn’t help but to notice how tragic her lace front wigs were. There is no human being walking the face of the earth who’s hairline starts at the middle of their forehead.
Well besides, this person:
When your hairline resembles that of Eddie Munster, you seriously need a lace front intervention. Forget about chasing around Flo Rida, Brandy needs to chase around another stylist to fix those horrible wigs.
Now Brandy definitely isn’t the only person to suffer from Lace Frontitis. Just look at Kelly Rowland in the picture below:
Kelly….What in god’s name is going on with that hairline? Where’s your part? Where’s the natural hairline, or at least some natural looking baby hair (#noChili). I’m not even going to mention that you can also see where the lace front begins.
Don’t think it’s only the rich and famous with horrible Lace Frontitis. You can walk into any beauty supply nowadays and pick up a cheap lace front for less than $50. I can’t count how many women I’ve seen on the streets of DC & Baltimore with what resembles roadkill on their heads.
I’ve seen crooked hairlines.
I’ve seen glue and lace exposed hairlines.
The madness must STOP!
Seriously, I blame Tyra & Beyonce for this lace front wig epidemic. Tyra & Beyonce have definitely had their fair share of lace front mishaps, but for the most part, Beyonce has always kept her lace fronts ‘natural’ looking (well as natural as you can get wearing hair that has been sewn onto a piece of lace and then super glued to your forehead). If you’re seriously going to venture out and attempt to wear a lace front, at least make sure you’re not walking around looking like Eddie Munster’s twin sister.
