Ghetto Hairstyles? March 24, 2009

Recently, while sitting on the number 2 train in Brooklyn next to two mothers, I overheard a very interesting conversation. One of the mothers was describing a hairstyle that her daughter requested as being “one of these ghetto hairstyles”. From what I heard, the style involved box braids in the back, complemented by flat twists in the front, which were each tied with a rubber band at the end. The mother expressed anger over the fact her daughter couldn’t be happy with two or three braids. As I listened to the conversation I thought about how hairstyles in the African-American community can be/often are signifiers of class, identity, level of education etc.

Do you think that some hairstyles should simply be avoided? Are there ghetto hairstyles?
