I saw this last week and have been pondering it for a while. You maybe wondering why, because this nothing new for Black women in the U.S. the reason I say that is because I did my graduate school thesis on this very topic. I guess the entire wold needs more education. This story makes me think of Zendaya at the Oscar’s. I think that she looked amazing. I think the young women in the story below looks amazing. It truly makes me shake my head when people say that a certain hair types are not suitable for selling high end products…. I wonder if they would turn down the money of someone trying to purchase “high end” products with the same hair style.
“A woman from south London says she was left shocked and embarrassed after she was asked to change her hairstyle to get a job. Simone Powderly had braids in her hair when she went for an interview at a recruitment agency and says she was told they weren’t suitable when selling “high end” products. Tarah Welsh speaks to Simone, Amina Lawal from Amina Kadia Hair and Irene Shelley the Editor of Black Beauty and Hair.”
