Cultural appropriation has been a hot button topic these days with black twitter recently up in arms about the new so called “boxer braid” trend. Black women say the hairstyle, now worn ad nauseum by the Kardashians, is really just cornrows and black women have been rocking them for years. But others like Marie Claire magazine, that posted photos of Kendall Jenner rocking the style, call them “bold,epic and new”.
HipHollywood asked Barbershop: The Next Cut stars Eve and Regina Hall what they make of the boxer braid controversy. Is it much hairdo about nothing? Or are is it another example of white America stealing from black culture. Check it out their response above, and please weigh in in the comment section.
