Naomi Campbell's Hairline Tells The World To STFU
Naomi Campbell's hairline got on Twitter and Facebook tonight and it told all the haters to STFU.
Seriously, why's the world shocked over this paparazzi picture of Naomi's hair loss? What did everyone think was up under her wigs and weaves? A luxurious mane of natural hair?
OK, let me retract that question because I realize there are probably people who think the hair on Naomi's head's been growing out of her scalp - Just like they think Beyonce's hair is all hers. Poor delusional people...
Anyway, the world's wondering, how did this happen to Naomi? Forget that boring oil spill in the Gulf... what is going on with this sista's hurr???
Till Naomi comes forward and does a sit down with Oprah or Tyra Banks, I guess we'll be left to speculate. Many are guessing that she's suffering from alopecia due to constantly wearing weaves and tight extensions.
For everyone who tsk-tsks her for weaving it up, let me ask you this: If she wanted to be a high fashion model, what was she supposed to do? Tell designers and photographers that she doesn't believe in straightening her hair and getting it styled?
I guess she could've said that and gone and been a super hot bank teller. But I think she probably wanted to work, so she went along with it.
Remember, Naomi's been in the game a LONG time. I doubt that in the 25-30 years she's been ruling the catwalk that we've ever seen her natural hair. And, even though American Apparel's current suggested policy is that African American female employees should wear their hair natural... that trendy ishtar is not the norm in the fashion world.
One thing I haven't seen discussed too much is that Naomi might be losing her hair naturally. Even though it's not discussed, women can go bald, too. It happens and if that's the case, what's wrong with her rocking a wig?
The bottom line is that no matter how bald headed Naomi gets or how many wigs or weaves she wears, she will always be an amazingly beautiful woman. She could shave her head and draw some hair on with a sharpie and she'd still be hotter than 99% of the OTHER WOMEN (so much for sisterhood, right?) who spent time online today making fun of her.
My heart goes out to Naomi. Yes, she throws BlackBerry's and dates shady Russians, but I can't imagine having unflattering photos of me plastered all over the Internet. Whatever's going on with her hair, I hope she can resolve it for her.
