Q-Tip - Excursions
Realized I was on the whole kids thing this week (And I have another post about young people to post) so I"m going to switch it up.
Is it me or is the hair weave undergoing a serious revival these days? I mean a few years back weave was on the run. Natural hair, the dreads, the afros, the braids, the twists were running things up in the T-dot but lately I've noticed that the weave has made a comeback.
Its un-be-weaveable! Long long weave too I might add. Add that to the big shades and the shin high boots and tight tight jeans that the ladies wearing today and everyone starting to look like Lil' Kim ...with and without the boob job. Lawd ave mercy!
Ok well maybe I lie, the weave was never on the out completely, it was just on the low and wasn't as obvious as before. From the days of completely obvious weave we entered an age where the weave was undercover. Yea keep it on the hush. The weave was around its just it played the d.l. The weave tried to look natural. Natural weave, curly weave, weave parading as real hair. Undercover weave. Damn brothers was shook. How you expect us to tell if its a weave if it looks natural? We're not that detail oriented. I mean if it obvious obvious a fella might still spend nuff time wondering if its real or not so when it can pass for real hair then you got us completely lost.
And so the weave went unnoticed for years and existed along with the natural hair and the braids and sometimes posed as the natural hair and the braids. The weave was passing. It was an era of peace and tranquility.
But not any longer. The weave has risen again with much fuss and flurry! De Gal dem looking like dancehall queens again. The obvious weave, the shoulder length, jet black straight straight weave. Say it loud, I got a weave and I'm proud. That's right sister its your hair if you paid for it dammit!
But I not dissing the weave, to each them own and well more power to you for the weave if that's your thing. I'm just commenting that I'm seeing more and more obvious weaves these days. Don't call it a comeback but maybe it is. This whole fashion thing goes in cycles, the fro was big in the 70s and made a comeback a few years back, bell bottoms did the same and hey maybe its the time that the weave does the same thing. More power to it. I aint complaining as long as I aint have to buy nuhbody no horsehair. Ya can buy it yaself though.
Seriously though have you guys noticed more weaves than previously or am I just imagining things.
