Negrology: The Black Man with Long Hair and A Perm
It was a time when I thought men with long hair and perms were pimps. One reason is because most of the men I met with long hair and perms were pimps! That's not to say that they all are, because surely some of them were just plain gay, but sadly, as a hairstylist, I was fascinated with the trend. To add to the madness, I felt privileged to play in a pimps head who had long pretty hair (as crazy as it sounds); slapping him on a fresh perm, making waves and twirling him some pretty curls, and overall just giving him the look that attracted the women really turned me on. Well, that was then.
Today, a man with a perm is one I could do without. I somehow can't appreciate a man that spends more time and money on his hair, and always in the mirror more than me. I've been down that road, and not only do they become a bum on top of a burden, there's always a question of whether he has some bad genetic (female type) traits. It's like when you get mad and feel the urge to call a man a b**** a** n**** for acting a certain way, it's relatively easy to do when he's always in the mirror playing in his hair.
