Lately, I can't help but notice that a lot of female celebrities have died their hair blond. The most recent one that comes to mind is Beyonce. I saw her new hair on one of the last shows of Oprah and I have to say, as beautiful as she is, I didn't like it. The biggest reason why I wasn't very convinced was because it actually made her skin tone lighter. Another celebrity that decided to go lighter was Shakira. She's been blond for a while but just like Beyonce's new look, I'm not very excited about the blond and it's also because it seems like her latina skin tone was lightened. A lot of Latinas can relate to Beyonce and Shakira's skin tone because, naturally, the majority of us have a light brown tone, and I feel it should be celebrated! I don't think these women are necessarily hiding their roots (after all they're role models for women of a minority) but I feel that their also not celebrating them either. Do you feel that blond hair doesn't really celebrate these celebrities' natural heritage?
What about this? Blond hair can aslo be very contraversal for latinas because there are a few of us who are actually light complected and have the natrual blond hair. Believe it or not, Cameron Diaz is actually a latina too! I was surprised to find that out and I feel that the biggest reason why her hispanic heretage isn't highly known like Shakira's is because she's light complected and blond. I do understand that she is natrually light complected but does her skin tone and hair color not represent her Hispanic background?
What exactly represents a Hispanic background?
