'Inches!!!': Beyoncé's Mama Miss Tina Shuts Down The Petty And Edgeless By Revealing Daughter's Real Hair

Close

In 2013, Beyoncé was busy shutting down the internet, regularly.

That year not only did she release her self-titled visual album, but she also debuted a new hairstyle: the pixie cut ala Halle Berry.

The Drama 

Members of her devoted following, The BeyHive, and haters alike questioned if the pixie-cut was actually Bey's real hair length that was hidden underneath the lace-front wigs she wore to perform. While others believed that Yoncé chopped off the long tresses they saw her with since her Destiny's Child days.

This 2013 debate resurged when the "Drunk In Love" superstar's hairstylist, Neal Farinah posted several photos of her from when she presented the Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick. In the captions of the photos, Farinah wrote: "SAY WHAT ALL NATURAL #EDGESSNATCH," and "SLAY ME THAT NATURAL CURLY HAIR @beyonce."

Commenters responded to his captions by saying they believe Bey was indeed wearing natural hair that was not her own. This ignited some shady clapbacks from Beyoncé's camp and BeyHive.

The Hive Buzzes Back 

Farinah posted a video (below) reminding people Black women are not the only ones who wear wigs or extensions and shouldn't be shamed for their choices. He continued to school social media followers by telling them just because Black women adorn their heads with weaves, it doesn't mean their natural hair is not healthy nor long.

The debate got so heated, Beyoncé mother joined in by posting an off-guard photo (seen below) of Lemonade hit-maker, with the following caption: "INCHES!!!! So happy my baby’s hair grew back !! She is going to get me."

Here's how social media responded to Bey's hairstylist and mother justifying her long-hair-don't-care looks:

The truth of the matter is, due to racism and colorism, Black women are not expected to have long hair because traditional media projects to us that only women who are from European, Asian or Aboriginal descent can only have flowing tresses or a certain type of texture. However, if one carefully does their research hair length and texture is solely based on family genetics, not race. It is also based on haircare needs and styles.

Slay on, Bey!
