This blog is just a baby, so it’s great to see that so many people share my love of marvelling at the hot messes of the world.
I will say now, however, that while this blog will primarily focus on pictures of crazy-ass people with crazy-ass weave, I’m also going to include my thoughts/other people’s thoughts on hair in general (particularly within the black community) as it’s an issue that I feel should be discussed.
I don’t want to alienate anyone though, so don’t run away scared because I used the words “black” “community” and “issue” within close proximity…you can still have your cake and eat it.
I want “fuckyeahbadweave” to be a blog on par with ratemypoo…if rate my poo threw in the odd post about nutrition and dietry advice.
I find it interesting how little people know about weave, or just “synthetic” (synthetic in the sense that it does not grow from your head…I’m well aware that you can use human hair too) hair in general.
It’s like this great myth to some people. The same goes for extensions/box braids/braids hair extensions (clip-ons) and wigs. They’re all different things.
I’m currently wearing extensions (the braids) as a protective style (I did the big chop and now my hair is in that in betweeeny stage) - which I put in myself - and the amount of people (namely boys/white boys) I’ve had to explain the concept of false hair to…
Not that synthetic hair is a pressing issue that we all need to discuss.
It’s just interesting that’s all.
I think we all know that Britney is the queen of bad hair extensions.
But because she sports her synthetic tresess on a fairly regular basis (come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen her without them since her episode a while back)…I have a feeling she doesn’t give a fuck.
She wears those discoloured, dry add-ons like a badge of honour, and I tip my hat off to her for that.
From all the hot messes in the world and I, we salute you, Brit Brit.

For sure! I just checked out your blog, it’s pretty cool too.
Let me know what you think these guest post should entail, (not for my sake, this blog isn’t my main blog, it’s just for fun…I just want to make sure I don’t throw off the aesthetics of your blog).
tumblrbot said: WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?
Woo! First tumblrbot question.
Um, my earliest human memory involes me being pushed in my pushchair along the high street one extremely rainy day with the plastic rain cover down. I kept trying to touch the water droplets from behind the rain cover. Didn’t work.
Do you know how long it took me to find a picture of a celebrity (other than Britney Spears) with bad weave? I literally had to scour my brains in order to think of someone who ALWAYS looks like a hot mess.
And that someone, is Serena Williams.
Her body is BANGALANGING. And she’s an…
