Thou shall not mess with a Black woman’s hair should be commandment — especially when you don’t know what you’re doing.
Case in point, the folks over at Mayvenn, the luxury hair extension company, pulled together a group of gentlemen for a funny little challenge called: “Men Style Black Womens’ Hair For The First Time.”
The 6-minute video shows the men randomly choosing hairstyles to execute, which include looks like two-strand twists, cornrows — and even space buns (Think, two big Bantu knots). From there they watch a quick turtorial on their individual ‘dos and then get to work. As you can imagine the results are hilarious — epseically the softwear developer that was stuck with cornrows. Oy!
The funniest part is watching them fumbling through tasks that are so second nature to us women. So the next time your bae asks why it’s taking you so long to get ready to go out, simply show them this video and tell them that beauty takes time — and skills.
