Over the weekend, Kylie Jenner's hair caught the attention of Hunger Games' star Amandla Stenberg, who took to Instagram to call out Kylie for her cornrows and cultural appropriation. Based on another photo Kylie shared on Instagram, it seems like the controversy may have her considering a drastic haircut.
Kylie shared this image with the caption, "Post shaved head 😡 thinking about just shaving it off again." Not sure exactly what "Post shaved head" means in the context of this photo since, I'm pretty sure she originally shaved her undercut, like, a year ago?
Regardless, what Kylie decides to do—to shave, or not to shave, etc.—is really not what's important regarding this ongoing discussion about hair and hairstyles. What is important, though, is educating yourself about other cultures, what's important in those cultures, and why.
If you're still not sure about why Kylie's hair is getting so much attention, allow Amandla to break down cultural appropriation—especially, when it comes to cornrows—for you.
