Kim Kardashian Comes Under Fire Over Pictures Of North West's Hair

Date June 19, 2018

Kim Kardashian is no stranger to social media attack and this time around, people are judging her over her daughter North West's hair.

North West's look

In recent photos, the five-year-old daughter of Kim K and Kanye West has been rocking a sleeker, Ariana Grande-inspired hairstyle.

The mother-daughter duo was photographed when they were visiting an ice cream shop in New York City ahead of North's June 15th birthday

While it looked like a fun day for the family, many people who spotted the photos disapproved of North's long straight hair.

Reactions

Usually, the adorable little girl wears her naturally curly her hair in buns or braids. But from the looks of things, some sort of heat treatment has been used to smooth out these curls.

Several social media users took to Twitter to share their opinions that North was way too young to undergo such extreme measures on her hair.

There were those who worried that the young girl was wearing extensions which many also disapproved of.

It's also possible that some of the comments were aimed at the pressures women of color often face to straighten their curly hair to 'fit in'. So some might have felt Kim Kardashian was simply bowing to this societal expectations.

Regardless of her motivation, the reality star has a right as North's mom to do whatever she believes is best for her daughter.

Happy 5th Birthday

To celebrate North's birthday, the mother of three shared a sweet tribute to the little girl. "I'm honored to be your mom," she said in the caption of a photo where North seemed to be having a fun family time with her mom and cousin Penelope.

Her post also included a P.S. that implied that North was still not being very friendly to little brother Saint.

Now that you’re 5, don’t you think it’s the mature thing to try to be nice to your brother now!?!

We imagine the sibling bond will be forged in due time, though. Happy birthday, North.
