Um…Steve Harvey’s Got Hair Advice?
Um…Steve Harvey’s Bought Hair Advice?
I’ve been recognized to chuckle at a Steve Harvey joke now and again. His delivery amuses me. His opinions…not a lot. Actually, it doesn’t actually surprise me when Steve Harvey - or another comic, really - says something ignorant.
It isn’t the comedian’s job to be sensible, it isn’t the comedian’s job to coach. For the most part they remain utterly devoted to only attempting to be funny, by any means essential. And in case you call them out for being ignorant or flawed, that is their first line of defense, and you’ll be attacked as having a broken sense of humor. Can you inform that I’ve heard this all earlier than?
So when i read this publish over at Honey Brown Sugar - Steve Harvey Doesn’t Like Our Hair - my eyes simply kinda rolled themselves.
I might really care less if Steve Harvey likes my hair to be fairly sincere. But, yesterday somebody dropped at my consideration a subject that was mentioned on his morning present and that i just had to share it with my women! From what I understand, the dialog went as follows (Special because of the person who shared this with me!):
A lady called in to ask the visitor stylist a hair associated query. As a part of her query she mentions she is pure and wears her hair twisted and untwisted for the crinkled look. She wanted to understand how to maintain her hair from breaking and how to maintain it moisturized. The guest stylist then proceeds to offer her a product recommendation (from the road he was representing, Soft Sheen).
Steve then throws in the next query: Do you have got a man? The caller responds by saying "yes", he then goes on to ask, "how does he like your hair?", she then says , "he doesn’t like the natural look"…. Steve’s response: "I knew it! YOU GONNA LOSE YO’ MAN!" after which they lower to a business.
Oh Steve. You of all folks should be more sympathetic than that.
I want there was audio of this, because it could add context to the remark. All I can do is speculate as to what Steve Harvey meant to say, or would have continued to say. And for my part - any man who has had a hair journey like Steve Harvey, ought to be extra sympathetic and appreciative of pure hair.
Sure. Steve Harvey has had a hair journey, and quite a public one. Now he’s bald, and looks good with it! Go ‘head Steve! However let’s not neglect the past. The website Bald Outing has accomplished a great job of ensuring that won’t ever occur. (Yes, Bald Outing is precisely what it appears like. Simply in case you had been wondering about any of your favorite celebrities!)
Within the 90’s, Steve Harvey was clearly struggling with hair loss - as pictorial evidence reveals.
Then for some time he appeared to have the right hairline. Too perfect, some would possibly say. So straight. So neat. Like the very microphone he’s holding within the picture beneath.
Then there was the hat section. Keep in mind that? Yes certainly. Good times.
I’m not one to speculate, but you must go forward and Google Steve Harvey wig or Steve Harvey hairline and see what comes up. Or check out the Facebook group, Steve Harvey, We know That’s A Wig. Mmmm hmmm. Level made.
Barber to the stars Maurice Manley once advised me that he’s acquired a secret "blending technique" for clients with male sample baldness. It includes specialised trimming, and generally using fill-in hair fibers. Perhaps that’s what Steve Harvey was doing - possibly it was never a wig. I’m not right here to disparage the man. My level is, Steve Harvey has had his ups and downs with hair and trying to sustain appearances. He knows what that looks like. He’s lastly chosen to embrace what his hair wanted to do in the first place. And that i bet he feels freer for having completed so.
In gentle of that, I think it’s unlucky that he’d really feel the necessity to come down on a sister who’d probably had a hair journey of her own, and is free to make her own hair decisions. Telling her she’s gonna lose her man due to how she’s carrying her hair isn’t an enlightening, informed or necessarily right message.
So I gotta say from the bottom of my coronary heart: Steve Harvey, your response was ignorant and wrong. There are stunning black ladies everywhere in the world, who wear their hair kinky, coily, pure and free - and are beloved and in happy relationships of every kind. There are so many males that LOVE ladies with pure hair!
I want your message to that young girl had been positive. She admitted that her man doesn’t like pure hair, and that’s sure to be painful and tough for her. As a substitute of constructing her feel bad, that was a terrific time so that you can say hey woman, in case your man doesn’t admire your pure beauty, then he’s obtained a problem. You should let him know how that makes you are feeling. If he really doesn’t like it and refuses to vary his mind - it's best to focus on that side of the connection and your feelings about it, before you go about altering your look just to fulfill his shallow, look based mostly desires. It’s not a pithy 10 second soundbite, but jeez. Something. Anything more inspiring and clever than what you truly mentioned.
But hey. There I am going once more, having expectations of a deeper message from a comic.
What’s your view, bellas? And - bonus question - what advice ought to Steve Harvey have given the caller?
