Kim Kardashian Is Being Criticized Regarding North West’s Hair
Yesterday, television personality Kim Kardashian West and Jonathan Cheban took North West and her little amigo to Dylan’s candy bar in New York.
Though her mom wore a dark ensemble with natural-looking curls, the little 5-year-old looked joyous during a pink — Adidas tracksuit, white Yeezys, and a candy necklace. Most polemically, but, the little style icon had an Ariana Grande-esque ponytail — a high, taut style with a long, straightened mane — out cascading down her back.
Of course, North West has natural textured, curly hair, something that — her mom has in public tried to help her embrace.
In an episode of “KUWTK”, the Armenian-American — beauty mogul got recital on how to braid black hair and has since announced regarding it on Instagram.
In Interview magazine she said, ‘She’s obsessed with her curly hair, and if she finds somebody who has a similar — hair, she runs to them and is like, “You’ve curly hair like me?” and we get to speak regarding it.’
So, admirer was a bit surprised to see the “birthday girl’s” hair straightened yesterday for her celebrations.
Many took to Twitter to voice their annoyance, which is no-doubt heightened due to celebrity Kim’s own arguably dangerous history with cultural appropriation:
North West is still a baby and has straight hair. I know we all had straight hair too at that age but it’s 2018! The enlightened YouTube era! Come on KimberYe get it together

Another’s have taken a unique stance, exclaiming — their love for the design and pointing out that celebrity Kardashian West can select what is best for her child:
Whilst, of course, North’s hair should be between her and her mom, we can not help however think about the — message this sends to little girls with beautiful natural hair.
