Vogue Magazine Declares North West a Natural Hair Icon, Totally Ignores Blue Ivy

Avatar • Jun 18, 2015

north-west-ballet-bun

The good hair/bad hair divide is still alive and Vogue’s recent piece on North West’s hair makes that abundantly clear.

North West, the adorable offspring of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, turned two on June 15 and Vogue dedicated an article to her many hair looks. The piece, entitled How North West’s Curly Styles Are Inspiring a Generation of Natural Hair Girls provides tutorials for four of North’s styles…

Whether a top bun or a comb-over, North’s pint-sized hair styles complement her fashion-forward play clothes, while remaining refreshingly easy and age-appropriate. They’ve established little Nori as a kind of hair icon for a nascent and diverse generation of tots rocking their natural curls with unprecedented flair—among them, my two-year-old niece, Isabel.”

Now a couple things; this article was written by a black woman, Marjon Carlos, and she was specifically referencing how North’s bi-racial heritage serves as style inspiration for her own bi-racial niece. Despite this, the piece is troubling for its glaring omissions.

Whether deliberately or not, Carlos seems to conflate bi-raciality and looser curls with natural hair, effectively erasing the black community that built the natural movement and created the very terminology she uses in her piece. It’s an issue we hear about too often; the ‘covergirls’ of the natural hair movement are loose-curled beauties, while those who built and sustain it — many of whom have tight curls — are deemed unfit to represent it visually.

And why is there no reference to Blue Ivy, the celebrity offspring whose hair has inspired countless think pieces, memes and even petitions. Whose every bun, twist and afro puff is fastidiously documented. Whose mother, a global mega-star, refuses to subject her daughter to the same standard of hair ‘acceptability’ that she is judged by. To name North West a generational “hair icon” while ignoring Blue Ivy is to reveal a clear bias towards a looser texture of hair.

blue-ivy-ballerina-bun-ffn-ftr

Even if you take Blue Ivy out of the picture, there are many high profile black and bi-racial girls, many with tight curl patterns, who are inspiring the up-and-coming generation of naturalistas including Riley Curry, Willow Smith, Yara Shahidi, Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya Coleman, Skai Jackson, Aoki and Ming Lee Simmons, Cali Dream, Genesis Davis and the list goes on.

And you know black Twitter had a lot to say about this…

Ladies, what are your thoughts on all this?

Thats the dumbest ish I ever heard in my life. If anything, neither one of them should be natural hair ICONS. They are babies!!! But if we are going to boldly go there, then it should be Blue Ivy. The writer is extremely biased. First they didnt want anything to do with the Kardashians, now they are kissing their asses.

Seriously? Couldn’t you find another child of a black celebrity couple to hold up as a natural hair icon rather than Blue Ivy? You diminish your argument by choosing parents whose haircare practices of their child has been questionable. Although lately they’ve been doing a better job.

My thoughts exactly. I am loathe to see all the “look at my natural baby” pictures, these days, because it’s starting to feel like a Texas toddler pageant. Little kids shoved into the spotlight, little kids who really aren’t concerned about their hair and aren’t making any active choices of their own, and adults either lift them up o rip them to shreds. I think it’s unhealthy. And it’s not just Blue Ivy and North West — there are lots of natural children being “sold” as “natural hair icons” for a future generation, mostly by their parents who chuck their… Read more »

it could be a racial thing, or it coud be that some people don’t like the way Blue’s hair is done We’ve heard plenty about that even from blacks. I think as long as her hair is done and moisturized, it s fine, but at 3years old, letting a black girl who likes to roam free have LOOSE hair has its consequences. She won’t keep it neat. They can braid or bun it biweekly to make it look neat. But f you leave it loose, she’s a just a kid who’ll spoil it, unlike us adults. Not that that’s bad,… Read more »

As soon as I saw this article I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. Natural hair people are so damn sensitive. Basically, this article “author can’t write about North West’s natural hair without writing one about blue ivy first”. You’re just further helping with the segregation among naturals. You think they’re discriminating among kinkier hair textures but now you are discriminating those with losser hair texture.

They ARE discriminating against kinkier textures, and thus upholding White supremacy.

Looser textures have always been more accepted by mass media platforms, and this is where the ire stems from. Not saying that there aren’t some elements of the natural community that discriminate against looser textures (I certainly do if they’re “3A” or looser), but by and large, looser textured hair is elevated above kinkier textured hair almost everywhere.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! The black community honestly gets on my nerves sometimes!! Lets just all unite and embrace ourselves with all different colors, curls, kinks, and coils. We really have to show support for each other. Its good that North gets this recognition. Its a start! No need to start going on and on about how she doesn’t deserve this because she is not black enough. Just stop it people. We need to come together in these dark times.

Why were we always ‘welcoming’ to people who looked the least like us? Why were people with straighter hair and lighter skins automatically pushed to the top of those who didn’t? Can’t you see that no other race rewards those with less of their features the way we do? No, you cannot have the closest thing to White features and raised among White people and be touted as representing Black people. It’s insulting.

YES!!!!!!!!! We are so happy and willing to give accolades and awards and adoration to people who do not represent the overwhelming majority of us. It reflects a cultural state of mind in which our own features are still looked down upon, and anyone with anything BUT our features is automatically worth celebrating. It’s a type of insidious culture-wide self-hate, and I don’t understand it. Especially in the natural hair world. But it’s no wonder — brands for naturals still mostly showcase women with type 3 hair. Maaaybe a 4a like Naptural85. Natural hair groups, boards, and meet-ups will still celebrate… Read more »

Actually, that’s not quite true. Asians without mono eyelids and large round eyes are praised for their beauty, it’s the same with pale skin in all Asian cultures. In Bollywood notice how pale the women are compared to the everyday Indian women who are very brown, just as brown as most African-Americans are.

Personally I don’t disagree with the article because she is mixed. I disagree because I actually do think Blue Ivy would have been a better choice all around. Her hair has been at the center of many discussions and debates. So for me when I think of a natural hair icon for children she’s who automatically comes to my mind.

I actually think that both Blue and North can be “representatives” for natural hair. Maybe they ignored Blue, because they saw how members of the black community severely criticized her natural hair; maybe they learned it from some of us.

Although this is North West’s hair in it’s natural form, I honestly don’t consider her hair “natural” as far as we know “natural hair” to be. She does have nice hair and it has always looked great. Blue Ivy hasn’t gotten a lot of compliments due to the way (or lack of) her hair had looked for awhile. However, if I were to vote on a child being a, “Natural Hair Icon” I would definitely choose Blue. Just because you see curls on North West’s hair, doesn’t mean… Read more »

Natural is not having chemicals in the hair to change texture, which NW doesn’t have. They are both nautral and truth be told, natural hair comes in every type, straight, wavy, curly, or kinky. You don’t have to have 4c hair to be natural. The whole problem is that first, our community tends to think of looser curls as better and then get made when a big publication like “Vogue” praises it too. I’ve always like Blue’s hair and always found it funny when people on this very forum complained constantly about Beyonce not doing anything to her hair. We… Read more »

It’s not that North being recognized is upsetting. It’s that Blue Ivy, who has a tighter curl pattern, was criticized for doing the same thing that North is doing; Wearing their hair natural. It implies that looser patterned curls are better than tighter ones.

Hair that mainstream media and convention still deems “unkempt” or “unprofessional” even if it’s pulled back.

Re Blue’s hair: Respectfully, I don’t think that most members of the Black community were criticizing Blue’s hair because it was natural. On the contrary they were upset, albeit personally O‑ffended, that a Black mother would have her hair coiffed to the nines & not “run a comb through” her own child’s beautiful, natural hair. People were in shock! We all know that in Black culture our hair has always been our “crown and glory” whether it’s natural, braided, permed, pressed, locked, short, long, etc. You’re expected to take care of it with the respect and honor it deserves.

Both children are adorable and both just children. North had a mom that threw her into the media circus before she was even born. Beyonce and Jay Z obviously wanted privacy regarding their child only recently having close up full pics and videos of Blue Ivy. That is one reporter’s opinion, BGLH is a powerful platform, if you want Blue Ivy to have the same popularity, you have the power to do it providing as many pics of her are actually released.

Here we go again!!! The article was comparing her bi-racial niece to North West. Blue Ivy to our knowledge is not biracial. Why are we so quick to talk about divisions instead of embracing that both of these mothers have chosen to celebrate their daughters natural textures? Big deal if one’s hair texture is different from the next. Stop making things ALWAYS about race and just appreciate the fact that little girls of color are being acknowledged for their individual beauty.

North West was on the cover, and on an inside spread/editorial, for Vogue when she was still a months-old baby. Same for North’s solitary cover for CRFashion Book.

My hair is admittedly more like NW but I’m one who vocally didn’t like the condition of Blue’s hair as it did not seem to be nicely moisturized or styled a year back. Or rather not as nicely as I’d expect given the resources of her parents and their awareness of the media’s photo snapping. Notably, the old-fashioned black American in me expects little girls to be puffed, twisted & braided (except perhaps for church or special occasions) and sees hair fully out as something for grown women.

This is entirely black folks fault. The moment Blue Ivy’s hair grew three inches black folks, young and old, began dragging her through the mud. Women who had zero edges (cough cough Tamar) even had something negative to say about her hair but then North West was born and there was silence. No petition, nobody telling Kim to do her hair, nothing. So why do black folks expect white folks and other blacks to aknowledge black hair like North’s when we constantly bash it?

Racism a la Colorism in action. Also even Blue Ivy appears to have 4A hair, which is a looser texture. This is one reason why I generally disregard the media and celebrity gossip, it is negative towards black people.
