You can’t see me, but I’m doing the Roger Rabbit in my chair right now! Blacksnob got a mention in Time Magazine in their latest story on Michelle Obama and her hair (and why her hair matters)! The author actually quotes some of my readers in her article. Way to go readers!
Some black women note that Michelle’s choice to wear her hair straightened affirms unfair expectations about what looks professional. On Blacksnob.com a reader empathized with Michelle’s playing it safe in the White House and outlined her own approach: “Whenever I start a new job I always wear my hair straight for the first three months until I get health care. Then gradually the curly-do comes out.” Another echoed the practice: “I wait about four to six months before I put the [mousse] in and wear it curly … I have to pace myself because it usually turns into a big to-do in the office.”
