Local Salon Advertisement Reinforces "Good" Hair/"Bad" Hair Pathologies

























I do not appreciate what this advertisement is saying about acceptable hair. What's wrong with a fluffy Afro, and why does it seem to indicate rebelliousness? Why is a more "tamed" look attached to an A+ grade and docile smile?

i agree, everyone has their views on what is good hair and bad hair and i think it a bunch of foolery. especially at a young age, we should be showing our children how to embrace their natural beauty. what is wrong with a cute or wild fro??? i think its all individuality, i would be feeling pretty special to have my fro out on the first day of school. i would be ready to set tone. :0)
