Is it a Wrap for Weave?

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


It's been the summer of the shave-off for many women across the land. First the celebrities, (Cassie, Rihanna, etc.) then the regular folks.
Is this the end for the long, luxurious weave?
Women have been wearing it extra long since the 1970s, when posters of the lion-like mane of Farrah Fawcett used to be in every bar, restaurant and male teenage bedroom.
The long weave in essence owes its popularity to the European archtype of beauty, glowing locks of tuft curls or stalks of straight hair all down the back.
But now things are changing.
Women have pretty much rebelled against the acidic perm and are going au naturale with abandon.
Is it a wrap for the long, European-style weave?

I don't really think the weave will ever really die, but who knows... maybe folks are just craving creative expression instead of just blending into the in-crowd.
