Black women are so creative and particular when it comes to our hair. Braids, lace fronts, ponytails…you name it…we’ve done it. I love that we have become more comfortable with expressing ourselves through our hair and it has become a form of art.
One thing we are very particular about is our edges. I feel as though if my edges aren’t laid right then my hairstyle is incomplete. I have recently come across several videos and pictures of women with laid edges, but they have added an extra twist.
Bedazzled edges are becoming a trend and I am not mad at it. I first saw this trend appear on runways, but now it is becoming a day-to-day look for many women. I think this is an excellent way to catch the eye of anyone you walk past. BUT, some may think that this is taking it a little too far. Is this trend hittin’ or missin’.
