Curly Bashing?

Total Beauty has an article, the "Worst Hair Trends of All Time". While most are pretty ridiculous, I don't think Mariah Carey's hair is so bad. A little big maybe, but they make it sound like curly hair is bad.

    Perm? I always thought that Mariah Carey was a natural curly! Or am I wrong?

    I completely agree. They try to make it look like curly hair was a bad 80's fad. Did you read the caption for Jennifer Grey's hair? It said "Jennifer made curls cool in films like "Dirty Dancing" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" but looking at them now we have to wonder what she -- and everyone else -- was thinking." Yeah, the style is a little big, but they make it sound like curls are bad in general. :thumbdown:

    Mariah Carey is a natural curly. And what's wrong with Jennifer Gray's hair? It's a little wide, but not frizzy. And Mariah Carey's hair was good except for her "bangs."

    I agree. I always thought Mariah Carey had such lovely curls. It's a shame that she doesn't wear it down naturally anymore.

    OMG. That whole slideshow is just a cat fest. They tear everybody apart. I think I would dismiss it as a bunch of vicious celebrity-wanna-bes getting their jollies from criticizing people getting the attention they wish they could get.

    I agree with Jillipoo. I like some of the hairstyles and I thought that the comments were way to harsh (a little malicious) to be proper criticism. It was more like a bash-fest from jealous nobodies. Besides Mariah Carey's hair looks beautiful... I just wish she would go back to being curly.

    That list is a crock of ****. I'm sure if we saw pics of the people who compiled it we could pick them apart. I'm so sick of people calling curly hair, 80's hair. It's stupid. I guess we could call straight hair 70's hair and layered hair 90's hair.

    I think it's hilarious that they said Mariah's hair was frizzy in that picture. Her curls were anything but! I remember as a teenager being willing to part with a small body part to have hair like hers, and it still looks pretty good to me!

    Both of you are correct, I think.

    I just saw the old video for "Hero" where Mariah had her pretty curls and thought that she used to look much fresher and youthful with the curls. Jennifer Gray's curly hair made me want her haircut.

    There are other women on that list that actually looked okay, a little out there, but okay. Pink wears her hair crazy all the time, but she's just like that, so who cares? The creators of the list must be pretty lame people.

    God that list has just made me so mad!!! I just want to yell at whatever stupid person created that. Id say Maria Carey's hair looked the best there, great frizz-free curls, but I don't feel any of them were bad. They are really dismissing curly hair, basically saying anyone with curls is a sad, stuck in the past, fashion victim! What the hell is the stupid association that curly hair was only fit to be seen 20 odd years ago! Whoever sat there and made that list is just pathetic.

    I like the hair of Jennifer Grey, Maryah Carey and Sarah J. Parker. Ii don't see anything wrong with either one.

    What are those guys smoking, if I may be so crass? Actually, most of the hairstyles look good in the slideshows. I'm not a fan of the streaky dye-jobs (well, Joss Stone's look adorable, actually) or SJP's brushed-out on top, curly on the bottom look, but most of the stars in that slideshow have the bone structure to pull off the styles they chose. Sounds like a case of haters hatin', to me.
