The obsession with blks continue...*whistles*

Why aren't these hairstyles suitable for the office? White middle-aged women model cornrows and weaves to address racial prejudice in the workplace

White middle-aged professionals model black hairstyles, from cornrows to weaves, in a new photography series.

The quirky portrait shots were captured by North Carolina-based artist Endia Beal, who told MailOnline that she's often made to feel like 'the other' in corporate environments because of her large Afro.

In a bid to challenge people's perceptions of appearance, the 28-year-old took a group of white female office workers to an African-American salon and documented the finished results.

One woman named 'Charlotte' is seen looking defiantly at the camera, with her shoulder-length gray hair braided into corn rows.

While 'Ann' sports a tough facial expression as she shows off side braids in her red-colored crop.

Taking inspiration from one of this year's hottest hair trends, 'Christina' got finger waves put into her pixie cut.

Once the hour-long makeovers were complete, Miss Beal said the women couldn't get over how different they looked and some wanted to wear their hairstyles home.

She got inspiration for the photo project while interning at Yale University's IT department during her Master of Fine Arts program.

Being five-foot-ten-inches tall and with a red Afro, she said that she 'stuck out like a sore thumb'.

Feeling like 'the other' got her thinking about how people are 'forced to change who they are to fit into corporate environments.'

'Why is my natural hair a problem?' she said, adding that Afros are often viewed as 'militant'.

She titled her project Can I Touch It?, because it's a question she often gets asked by those fascinated with her hair.

Her hope is that it will open a dialogue among people of different gender, race, and generations about the ways in which we express ourselves, specifically in the workplace.

She worked on the compiling images during a five-week residency with the Center for Photography at Woodstockx, New York.

Next up, she plans on continuing the series, and documenting the reaction of co-workers when the women return to the office with their new looks.

This summer Miss Beal also created a short film, which features her male colleagues talking about what it felt like to touch her hair.

One man said: 'I remember it feeling weird, only because I'd never felt her hair before like that

'I remember the scent of her hair, the hairspray, the hair products that she used actually lasting on my hands for a while.'

In the workforce, Blk women have to conform to YT people's standards on a daily basis.   Straightening our hair, wearing wigs and wearing weaves are all part of the conforming process.  So why would YT women write an article to complain when its Blk women that have to change their hairstyles to keep their jobs?
 
To respond to your comment:  Blk women don't age nearly as bad as YT women.  Not even half as bad.  Those women in those pictures look like they have one foot in the grave.   I have a 85yr old grandmother that can rock one of those styles and still put those wrinkled-a$$ heffas to shame.
 
Now I just have one question for you:  Why the f*ck are you here in this forum?  Why bish, why????
