I am a white woman and I really admire black hair styles. My hair is long and silky, but I like some of the hairstyles I see on black women. Am I the only white woman who would love to have african american hair? My boyfriend likes my hair as long and silky, but I think it would be easier to maintain my hair if I took my hair to a black beauty salon and let them give me one of their hairstyles. I am debating in my mind and unsure what to do. Any insights?
Has any white woman had experience with black hairstyles? Or how about an afro on a white woman? I am ready for a change.
Well, I’ve seen some of the answers. I am white, and I am considered a very attractive white woman, but I’ve always been very interested in the appearance of beautiful black, african american hair. It looks so pretty, and maybe a little more stiff than white, european hair, almost like it would be easier to style than white hair. But I live in The South, in a small town and the rednecks might go crazy if I changed my hairstyle to adapt the african american look. We have a couple of minority beauty salons in the next town over, but I’m thinking about taking my hair there. Also, I must admit that my boyfriend, who is white, likes black women and I guess I’m willing to change my appearance to appeal to him. In fact, I’m the only white woman he has ever dated.
