Why Black Women Forced Gabby Douglas & Michelle Obama To Get A Makeover
Gabby Douglas got a fantastic hair makeover this week from celebrity stylist Ted Gibson, who tamed her tresses with a middle-part and soft curls. Gabby tweeted her happiness with the transformation, and though, we’ve all agreed nothing is “wrong” with her hair, we’ll all be watching with glee as she continues her media appearances, likely looking increasingly more polished with each one. This is what happens when the unknown become known, we’ve seen it time and time again.
I’ve mostly wanted to abstain from the great Gabby Douglas hair debate, firstly, because it’s stupid, and secondly, because I try not to write about things that everyone on the web is writing about unless I have a unique vantage point. When it came to Gabby’s fly-aways, there just wasn’t much I felt I could add to the conversation–and then it hit me.
