I know this is a big assumption, but I'm betting at least one of you curly men like curly hair on women. If you do, which celebrities turn your head MOSTLY because of their curly hair :?:

    I think kerri russell,shakira and that chick from the movie a 'knights tale'(shannon something) were smokin' hot with curly hair!And mandy moore is sooooo fine with curly hair too~.Oh,and i forgot that lisa bonet was hot back in the day.
    I've never seen another person with naturally similiar curly hair.As far as i know,i'm the only one.I use no product,other than shampoo and conditioner(both pantene).

    Beyonce'. She is the most beautiful of all curlies.
    3B/3C hair, very dry
    shoulder-length
    coloured strawberry blonde with lighter blonde and red stripes

    Thanks folks! JJJ, can you describe or post a pic of Beyonce with her actual, natural hair? Even when she wears her hair curly it often looks like a wig or something LOL

    Why would you think it's a big assumption? Are you serious?

    I LOVE women that have curly hair and most of my friends do too. I actually write about it extensively in my book... I'm brand new to these forums so maybe I haven't been exposed to all the dis-like yet, but is it that serious????

    Not 100% but I'm pretty sure this:
    beyonce-real-hair-on-today-show.jpg

    And this:
    beyonce-real-hair-21.jpg

    Are both bey-bey's natural hair. If you look at old destiny's child video's, around about 2000, beyonce stopped using her own relaxed hair and started with all the weaves. Legend has it that's because that's the time she went natural,

    Yes, of course I'm quite serious. Are you being willfully ignorant or are you just plain naive? Have you noticed the gaggles of TV shows, magazine ads and other pop culture images/references proporting the idea that "straight=good; curl=bad"? Have you heard of how much pressure is put on the AA and Latina community in particular, to have "good hair"? Have you seen Barbie dolls? Have you noticed ... Oh I could go on and on, but why? Go to the "Hall of Shame" forum on this site to get negative encounters of the first kind if you think I should just be assuming men in general love curly hair.
    I LOVE women that have curly hair and most of my friends do too.

    Nice to know ;)

    I've felt the pressure to straighten - but never from men. If anything that's one of the things that kept me curly. I've always received positive attention from men about my hair. The more other women straighten - the more interesting my hair is to men.

    Might I add, on one of my black women's natural blogs today the topic was a woman who (while naturally curly!!) met a man, fell in love, dated for TWO YEARS, married, and then 6 months in he divorced her because he doesn't like curly hair. Likes her, but couldn't get past her natural hair.

    Also a few months back a trending topic on twitter was "reasons to beat your girlfriend..because she went natural." so yes groYofro, it was a very serious, valid statement.

    That being said...What happened to all the men? :scratch:This was a intresting question, you boys can't think of any other curly girls you like? Ya'll should see the thread of curly men the girls like, it has more pages than the phone book.

    BOYS.....YOOHOO:happy1::hello1:

    Supposedly Beyonces "natural" hair was shown in the movie that she was in with Cuba Gooding Jr.

    But I'm HIGHLY skeptical that we have evr seen her natural hair outside of when she wears her hair in a bun, and even then I find it hard to believe that she is natural.

    Sol, I agree. Seems really hard to know when she's natural or not. (But the lady generally knows how to wear whatever hair she wears ;) )

    I honestly am not aware of the hate that surrounds women with curly hair. I don't watch the news and I especially never watch entertainment news, so obviously I haven't been exposed to it all. In my social circle and the people that I have talked to, most everybody likes my hair and they like women with curly hair. My girlfriend's hair is naturally curly (she's Mexican and Egyptian) and I honestly get upset with her when she straightens it!!

    I think that natural & mis-managed curly hair = bad... well taken care of & well moisturized hair = straight up sexy!!

    In regards to the hall of shame, there is going to be jealous and envious people everywhere. No point in paying them any attention...

    ^^ You see, here is an example of somebody that hasn't been exposed to all the hate either, I'm assuming??

    As far as celebrities I know of none, because I don't care about them. I don't watch entertainment programs and I never read any of their magazines. But, if you were to ask me which one of my friends curly hair I loved then I could do that or take me to the mall and tell me to point out which cute curlies I like then I could do that too!!

    Right. So your answer is ignorance. You seem to limit your exposure to your “social circle,”. It's good that you are open-minded to curls but there's a world outside your limited social circle and it's pretty big. I offered up examples like media, pop culture and 'Hall of Shame' to educate you as it regards the prevalence of the anti-curl mentality in that world.

    Yes, of course anecdotal cases exist, like you and the other person you've quoted. To your/their credit, it's refreshing to hear from two people who are the exception to the rule. It doesn't “just boil down to who you surround yourself with”. Ideally we are only exposed to people whose values align w/ours, but in reality that's not the case. Where you have a point is that it certainly helps to have such people around. But one still has to deal w/outside influences, usually on a daily basis.

    As far as you “not knowing of” curly-haired celebrities: well, either someone will believe you on that or not. Seems far-fetched to me, but who knows. What's true is there aren't a bunch of males citing examples of fav curly women on this thread (or elsewhere in the forums), though they've repeatedly pointed out fav curly men over time.

    I actually am kind of offended by your language here. Calling me ignorant and that I have a limited social circle isn't to nice. I don't understand why you are getting upset?

    Speaking of world, I'm willing to bet that I've traveled more of it then you. Also, since I've seen more of it then you I can tell you that this anti-curl mentality ONLY exists in United States. Besides the Asian countries that have predominately straight hair (I've been to China, Hong Kong, and Korea)

    This is why I have felt the need to write a book, because I want to enlighten people here in the United States (and yourself) that curly hair is a beautiful hairstyle and that the people in this country are narrow minded.

    The decision to pay attention to outside sources is yours. There is no need to listen to it. Heres some helpful advice: throw away the magazines, stop visiting the entertainment websites and begin watching things that will enlighten you. Trust me on this one and I promise you will thank me later.


    Why would I have any reason to lie about this? I sincerely do not know of any....

    You know what the difference between you and me is? That I'm actually trying to do something by writing a book, making an album, launching a website and an apparel line all on January 14th. I'm not trying to brag and boast, but I just want you to know that I am not your enemy. It seems that all you are doing is complaining......

    Everyone is talking about it! It can't be fake!

    Yeah, those are the rumors. There is another rumor that the baby that will be appearing after the pregnancy is actually her fathers child with another woman.

    I don't know why she would have to fake a pregnancy but it's whatever. I don't particularly care for the woman but I am disturbed that she's well known and a "rolemodel" but 6 months pregnant she's walking around and dancing in 5 in heels.

    Hmmm. Thought this thread would be dead by now. Sorry you're offended but my point is actually pretty general, mundane and logical and I'm just reflecting back what you told me about yourself.

    While your POV is as valid as anyone else's, you've admitted to a level of ignorance where it concerns exposure to more general, societal views on curly hair. You stated you've had limited exposure to (more general) sociological views on the issue, since you don't follow the news or watch pop culture media. That suggests you have a fairly large info gap re: peoples' general opinions about curly hair. You've said you're aware of the immediate views of yourself and your associates. That represents a bird's eye view when compared to a much larger pool of general opinions.

    All of us are ignorant about something (meaning we simply lack general exposure to something; it's not stupidity).

    I've inferred that one person's experience is anecdotal, whereas collective reports reveal more general trends.

    Don't take it personal, there aren't a lot of guy members to the site. There is no indication that the male members of the site don't like curly hair...that's an assumption based on the lack of response. Or did I miss something?

    Hi Maneman,

    I'll assume you're addressing me, though others have echoed my sentiment. First, no worries: I'm not taking this personally ;) I've made a couple of observations that seem to go hand in hand as it regards more general views about curly hair on women (as revealed in cultural and media messages/images). My observations were ...

    #1. People in general (in this society) seem to embrace straight hair on women far more than they do curly.

    #2. That seeming preference (#1) may be playing itself out in this thread, as there does appear to be a paucity of men coming forward to grant examples of females with curly hair they admire. Whereas there are several threads on this forum where men enthusiastically reference men with curly hair they admire.

    ... I said the lack of enthusiasm may be revealing itself here. That means it also may not be. I just found the lack of responses curious, is all.

    I don't understand why you care so much about what other people say? You've posted a lot on this forum, but instead of just talking why not do something to make a difference? Have you?

    Yes, I'm not aware about how much dislike their is surrounding curly hair and I thank you greatly for bringing it to my attention. Now you have re-inspired me to make my website better, my book more inspiring to other curlies, to release more designs for my apparel line and to invest more time in my music. All of this will be released January 14 and I hope you like it : ) If you would like to help me with the apparel line, book, album, or website pleaseee let me know, because I will be more then happy to work with you!!
