LIFESTYLE/INSPIRATION

THAT TIME MARC JACOBS MADE BANTU KNOTS TRENDY

As the weather warms, we’ve got to think of creative ways to get our hair up and off our faces while still looking cool and chic! That’s why the twisted mini buns inspired by Guido Palau‘s from the Marc by Marc Jacobs SS15 show proves to be the perfect spring/summer hairstyle. Pair it with bold lipstick for a night out, tribal inspired makeup for a summer festival, or with dewy makeup for a rooftop BBQ. Source: ManeAddict.com

Hey family!

So this is currently in the news and has got my attention. Have you seen this picture? And what do you think? It describes the style as ‘twisted mini buns’ but millions of other black women including myself call it bantu knots?

Cultural appropriation? Another ‘innocent mistake’ by main stream whatever? Remember that time Kendal Jenner was given thumbs up for wearing cornrows? But Zendaya’s locs smelled like weed?

Give credit where credit is due! I don’t believe there is any excuse for ignorance these days. But hey maybe that’s just me! It looks like someone got the message, but still there is a long way to go

I tried to go on the Mane Addicts website
