|My quick weave!!|
The Natural: I am always hearing about someone taking the BIG CHOP. For any Caucasian, Asian, or Latina women that might read my blog, this is when a black woman cuts all the straight hair off to the curl or natural part of the hair. Women who are tired of getting the creamy crack (relaxer) take this route. This style has actually caused a lot of debate in the black women community. Those who choose to take the clippers to their head might berate us who choose to continue to use the creamy crack because of how much damage it causes the scalp. I agree the natural might be whole lot healthier but for the time being I like my hair straight and will continue to take the risk. Regardless of my stance on the natural, I think this hair style can be very pretty. I love to see women with different braid styles with it or just wear picked out.

|Tyra always has a pretty weave|
|This is a no no|
|Rihanna use to rock the body wrap before she became a red head|
I love how creative we can get with our hair. I also love how we can switch up our styles on a daily. Monday we can have hair to our hips and Wednesday we can have short curly style. Whatever the style, it all inspires me.

Depending on your choice of sense of humor depends on if your think this was a low point. When Mindless Behavior and Mike Epps were presenting the Best R&B category, Mindless Behavior said that Mike Epps singing was as bad as Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant. After the comment a gasp could be heard from the audience. Beyonce won the award and did a shoutout to Lauryn Hill in her acceptance speech. Rumor has it that Beyonce vented backstage about how disrespectful the joke was but not quite sure how true it is. Honestly, award shows always take jabs at celebrities. I cannot say that I think this is the most disrespectful comment I have ever heard on an award show (Russel Brand and Ricky Gervais have said a lot worse about celebrities).
I cannot end this post without talking about the Whitney Houston tribute. BET Awards get an A+ for that tribute. I was not looking forward to hearing another artist sing “I Will Always Love You”. I understand that it was the main song that Whitney is known for but she had a slew of other unforgettable hits. Monica did a beautiful job. And Brandy…wow, I am proud of you. Brandy helped us remember that Whitney was not just a ballad singer. Ms. Cissy Houston gave an emotional tribute to her baby girl that almost had me in tears. And then Chaka Khan came out singing “I Am Every Woman” to show us how the legends do it.
I could probably write 2 or 3 more paragraphs on this awards show but I am going to end it here. If you missed it, I am pretty sure that BET is going to rerun it like 200 times before next year’s show.
