Glamour Magazine Sheds Light on Black Hair Discrimination


As we say time and again, clients walking out of our Paramus, NJ hair replacement salon, need to feel proud and confident with the Guci Image hair they wear. If they aren’t, then we have not done our jobs. We’re just happy to say, Guci Image clients leave us always feeling great!

What doesn’t feel so great when it comes to hair is when people find discrimination dogging them from the styles, cuts, colors, and most certainly, their hair’s textures. This prejudice is, unfortunately real, to seeming epidemic proportions for a lot of Black women especially. And to bring light to the issue, the September issue of Glamour magazine is presenting its very first “Black Hair” issue.

The cover of this month’s Glamour features six ladies who were fired or left their jobs due to hair discrimination. Their stories run the gambit over the reasons the ladies were fired and the kind of jobs they were fired from. Glamour also filmed the “I’ve Been Told,” PSA (see it here) with Gabrielle Union, Keke Palmer, Marsai Martin, and Uzo Adub. Each actor talks about hair discrimination, and the stories they relate will surely startle anyone, making it clear why the Crown Act is so important.

This new law bans “workplace and school discrimination based on hair texture and styles historically associated with race.” California is presently the first and only state to have implemented the law, but hopefully, many more will follow.

Worry over hair discrimination is probably the furthest thing from one’s mind when one is concerned with making sure their extensions, a Human Hair Lace Wig or their CTR unit, looks the best it can. But as Glamour assures us with this new, very special September 2020 issue, hair discrimination is genuine and something that surely needs to be exposed.
