When a weave job goes terribly wrong

I wasn’t going to post this because I know every other blog is posting pics from the NAACP Awards yesterday. But I couldn’t let this slide. I have no clue why former America’s Top Model Eva Pigford allowed her stylist to do this to her head. This is what happens when a stylist is in a hurry and convinces her client that a bad weave job is in fact the new style.

It looks like a tangled web of weave matted in with her natural hair. I think the stylist meant well, but when she saw that the style wasn’t taking shape after 6 hours of weaving she said, ‘f*ck it, she’ll never know the difference!

I thought we as a people were beginning to embrace our natural hair and abandoning the weaves and extensions? No doubt Eva asked her boyfriend, actor Lance Gross, if her weave looked good. And no doubt he told her ‘hell, yeah it looked good.’ Because he knows like every other man that when a woman asks her man a leading question – she’s already given him the correct answer.

    Sandra, I actually like it! Eva looks fly. I love the look completely. I guess different strokes for different folks.

    I personally don’t like it. I actually put on my blog that she swagger jacked Gary Oldman in Dracula…

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Yea Dat Ish Is A Mess I Wouldn’t Go To Bed With My Hair Looking Like That Let Alone The NAACP Awards. Couldn’t Convince Me That This Ish Was Cute On Any Day!!!

    I Woulda Snatched That Bullish Out So Quick!! I Would Rather Her Pulled Her Real Hair Back Inna A Ponytail Or Slicked Down.

    Never Would I Ever Look At That Weave And Thought It Was Going To Look Good At Any Point No Matter What U Do To It!

    It looks like the kids hair on Color Purple…Nappy!! I would have jumped on my stylist for putting that in my head, and Lance for saying it looked good when he know darn well it looks a HOT MESS!! Maybe I should give her the # to my stylist in Roswell @Phalyngs!! Lol

    It looks like she started to hot comb the front, then changed her mind. Short hair looks great on her, and I think her and Halle are the two women I have seen, where the long hair looks awkward on them.

    Her natural hair should’ve had a ‘kink’ in it too in order for it to blend. I love the natural look, but must admit the styling looks like Medusa. Not cute. :(

    you are right 2unruly it does look like she tried to hot comb the front. the hair doesn’t look too bad.if they left the front alone it would have looked better.

    Doesn’t look that bad. She is a beautiful woman, so it kinda works for her. When did nappy hair become such a bad thing for our race?

    Yeah Sandra, I like this! It’s very classy.

    Eva’s natural hair texture is fine, smooth and silky; but it looks as if the stylist added kinky weave to it. I guess the natural, kinky, textured weave is in style now. For example, I thought Teyanna Taylor’s hair was all hers all/natural, but the stylist added a lot of weave to it to give it that full, loose curl afro, look.

    I really like the way the two hair textures work here. Usually people are like ‘wtf’ when they see a person with a relaxer who’s roots have come in – black folk, at least. It’s a big no-no to do that. This look shows how the two textures can indeed work together and make a great hair style.

    I hope that two textured style become a more popularized and accepted hair styling option for us African descended women.

    Applauds to both Eva and her stylist!

    i don’t like it. i like eva better w/ short hair. this weave reminds me of this kinky mess that i tried one time….it looked good on the mannequin but i looked like a FOOL! i had to take that mess out of my head ASAP!

    I vote for her short hair…it looked cute and better.

    It’s cute…I can see where her stylist was trying to go. Shoulda crimped the straight hair to blend it in, though. Eva is a beautiful woman. They’d have to work real hard to make her look bad.

    Nappy hair isn’t a bad thing for our race, but either go kinky or straight…the two don’t look good together!

    here we go again sandy-n-da-rose. stop hating. it’s not my favorite look on her but i’ve seen worst…when you’re as pretty as she is you can basically pull anything off. further, aint nothing wrong with a weave boo boo. get over yourself!!

    uh oh. well since she’s such a doll face though she’ll be aight.

    it would have been fine in a “natural sense” if the grade of the weave match her own..that’s ridiculous

    Basically-

    Eva (like Halle) would look good with short or long hair. I think it’s just that THIS peticular hair style in NOT doing anything for her..

    Eva is still BEAUTIFUL, however, I’m real mad that she came out in public with her hair looking like this.

    if your gonna wear weave you hve to blend the textures or else it will look a hot mess like so. I love natural hair myself but this just looks all kinds of wrong because of the two completely different textures.

    buttercup24 says:

    I don’t like this at all. I’m all for natural hair but all of it would have to be natural. Plus just because its natural doesn’t mean it has to be ugly. This hair style is flat out ugly.

    If Eva did the two textures for publicity, she definitely succeeded ;^)

    It does look very odd to me, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t done intentionally or that Eva didn’t like it.

    I love Eva, not to sure about the style it looks almost like she was trying to grow dreads or something but she has a good grain of hair I agree with everyone that said she looks cute with the short cut!! I saw them in the audience & didn’t know who she was I recognized the guy though & I knew they were a couple but—I guess she can pull it off she has one of those faces!! I don’t know I’m still convinced that her & Terrance Howard were seperated at birth, yall can’t tell me they don’t look like brother & sister!!! Jus sayin

    brdnbutta says:

    Well I thinks this is like a 19th century hairstyle or something and that is the first point where the look goes wrong. Secondly Eva has a naturally curly almost straight hair texture on her own and she probably wanted to rock a kinky textured look… so her hair will never blend well with kinky hair. Maybe she will start a trend of people with “good hair” rocking “nappy” locks. She still looks pretty though and I agree she should keep her hair short!!

    WHY? WHY? WHY?

    EVA BABY I THOUGHT YOU WERE FINALLY COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN!! WHY, OH WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW SOMEBODY TO DO THIS TO YOU? THE TEXTURE DOESN’T MATCH YOUR OWN AND IT’S NOT EVEN BLENDED WELL!!! i AM NOT A WEAVE ADVOCATE BUT IF YOUR GOING TO DO IT, WITH ALL OF YOUR MONEY, DO IT RIGHT!!!

    BESIDES THAT BABY YOUR A MODEL!! YOU HAVE A SIGNATURE LOOK THAT PEOPLE LOVE AND PAY TO SEE. DON’T F-UP YOUR CAREER TRYING TO “KEEP IT REAL” OR “SWITCH IT UP” GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW.

    luckily she’s beautiful so it doesn’t look like a disaster, it just needs a professional’s touch.

    LMAO @ Smokie! I was thinking the same thing. If I see someone try to rock that this weekend, I’ll call the police. I’m scared to thing that she let someone else do this to her.

    LAChick says:

    Eva looks good tho’ she got a bad weave. I love a nappy, kinky do’ but this is just a weave on drugs. Odd too, her stylist normally beats her down…still her face looks fab.

    eishaKC says:

    That hair is a tress mess but she looks gorgeous.
    BTW: There is nothing wrong with getting weave/extensions. People need to stop believing the stereotype/lie that says, “Those who can’t grow it sew it.”

    I grow plenty but I like to switch it up without putting my hair through a bunch of harmful chemical processes or haircuts.
    I don’t think weaving means that people have any shame about their natural hair b/c I know I sure don’t .

    Looks a mess but she’s still beautiful. We all know her texture will never look like that. She shouldn’t have gone down that nappy road for NAACP. It’s okay boo….we know you’re black.
