Most of us are aware of the controversy over Gabby Douglas’ hair. Most commentators scolded an imaginary villain within the black community over the choice to focus on Gabby’s hair over the fact that she was the first black woman to ever win a gold medal in the women’s all-around event.
But really ask yourself, how many black people do you actually know who give a d**n about Gabby’s hair? Probably none. So, we at Your Black World have concluded that the Gabby hair conversation has been driven by an opponent that barely even exists. There are ignorant people out there always, but most black people were congratulating Gabby, not scrutinizing her.
But most of us would also agree that Gabby deserves whatever she wants after pulling off her amazing feat. So, the man known for covering makeover topics for TLC’s “What Not to Wear” has stepped in and given Gabby a hair makeover.
Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson took Gabby in and gave her the hair to die for. She looks as beautiful as always and seems excited about her new gift. Gabby shared her excitement about the experience on Twitter:
“Ted Gibson Is AWESOME!!! LOVE HIM SOO MUCH!!! Special thank you to my Gold Medal Celebrity Hair Stylist!”
Good for you Gabby. But remember, you were always beautiful to us, even in a ponytail. Check out an extraordinary poem about Gabby’s ponytail, performed by Jasmine Waiters. It’s amazing.
