Da Brat

Da Brat has had it rough over the last decade. She was released from prison in 2011 after serving 3 years for assaulting a bottle hostess at a nightclub. Then she was hit with a massive $7 million judgment after the woman sued her.

And at age 43, Brat, whose given name is Shawntae Harris, still struggles with gender and sexuality issues.

On Thursday, the “Funkdafied” rapper-turned-reality TV star took to her Instagram account to complain bitterly about a botched hair weave job that left her nearly bald.

“In my last posts my hair was crochet locs. But unfortunately, they were put in poorly and unprofessionally as I sat from 10am to 8pm getting my hair done. Then as I took them out I realized my own hair had been CUT to prevent it from poking out of the crochet locs that were already pretwisted. NOT A HAPPY MOMENT.”

Fortunately, Atlanta stylist Sunshine came to the rescue and saved Brat’s ‘do. Sunshine specializes in Crochet braids, Wavy Locs and Goddess Locs at her Atlanta salon.

Brat praised Sunshine for saving her ‘do, but it will be awhile before her hair grows back.

This is why online reviews and references are necessary before you sit in any stylist’s chair. Did you know most hairstylists and barbers in Atlanta are not licensed?

The city doesn’t have enough staff to make sure stylists and salons are in compliance. Meanwhile, people like Da Brat are being snatched bald.
