I’m Irish and Puerto Rican. I have dirty blond hair and blue eyes; however, the texture of my hair doesn’t “fit the rest of my features.” Naturally my hair is coily and “nappy”. When I wear it natural people refer to me as black and my Puerto Rican side comes out. When I wear a weave, I am a typical white girl. I don’t care about wearing a weave, I can carless what others think of my hair. Its stereotypical that black girls wear weaves, so why can white people? I get my hair done at Jazz’z and I’m proud of it. It Doesn’t change who I am it is just easier for me to do my hair.
