Bravo’s “Fashion Queens”, a brand new TV show, aired last night. The show features hair stylist extraordinaire Derek J, “Real House Wives of Atlanta: cast member Miss Lawrence, and stlye expert Bevy Smith. The three hosts speak on fashion trends, and today’s fashion NO-NOs.

Derek J, not necessarily a style guru, but a hair expert, took a few monents aftter the show to comment on Twitter about his dislike for the “Natural Hair movement” stating that ‘natural hair is not for everyone”.

MadameNoire blogger Veronica Wells found the comments outlandish!

My exasperation is not simply directed at Derek, he’s not even the tenth person I’ve heard say something to this effect. It’s a commonly expressed sentiment in the black community. So, let’s just go ahead and explore this topic.

How can your natural hair, the hair genetics and God intended for you to have, not be for you? It’s yours. To me, it’s akin to telling black folk, melanin or darker skin is not for everyone. Yeah, that’s why the world is populated with people of different tones and hues. But, for whatever reason, that is not our lot in life.  The skin tone, hair and features that occur in your appearance are yours naturally. Now, if you choose to alter these characteristics that’s your decision to make. But if someone chooses to embrace their natural features, their natural hair, it doesn’t mean that “the look” isn’t for them. In fact, it’s not just for them, it is them.
