There has been a notable amount of conversation on the internet on the rebirth of the natural hair movement. Cherise Luter (2014) states that despite afros and the natural hair movement not being a new concept (i.e. the Black Power Movement), it has gone under what she calls a “refreshing change”. Furthermore, what used to be “I’m black and I’m proud”, has been replaced with “I’m me and I’m proud” (Luter 2016). So, what is the natural hair movement? It is defined as a movement where black women decide to not conform to the social norms of chemically altering their hair and wearing it in its natural, kinky, or curled state (Joignot 2015). The movement could also be considered as an outlet for black women to display their racial and cultural pride or to articulate their “political position (Brown 2014:297). However, simply the terminology “movement” is something that should be shocking to many. There is a great amount of historical context behind the continuous influence Eurocentric beauty ideals have had on black women for centuries. According to Nadia Brown (2014), Black natural hair throughout history has proven to be recognized as “either unintended or intended personal and political statements” (298). the beauty standard in Western society which praises European hair textures, has influenced many black women to be critical of other black women who choose to chemically straighten their hair, accusing them of being subservient to the dominant and pervasive racist

tattoos. Usually there is a section about how the employee should wear their hair. Most of the time it is a rule for extreme hair colors. Some jobs do not want their employees to wear their hair in dreads or any other “untamed” styles, for instance Afros. Personally, there should be no restrictions as to how a person can wear their hair at work, but possibly suggestions by the boss so they can keep their business looking professional. Their performance on the job will not change because their hair is in a highlighted afro or a neon pink pixie cut. If the women feels great with those types of styles she should be free to wear them, but when the hair is not styled and looks unhealthy, that’s when the problems arise. An interviewee comes into
While makeup is considered a part of growing up, it can also be seen as supporting ideas of covering up an individual’s flaws, perfectionism and consumerism.
Discussion: The purpose for this investigation was to measure the diameter of the human hair using the knowledge of physics of diffraction and interference and the way light waves travel through a medium. The measurements made in this experiment were done using a ruler, a measuring tape and the wavelength of the laser beam used. The measuring tape was used to measure the distance from the hair to the wall. The ruler was used to measure the distance from the centre of the bright band to the center of the first dark spot which is called the order of minimas. The increasing number of minima corresponds to the centre of the second dark spot which are arranged numerically in order, such as, minima 1, minima 2 and so on.
argument is to cover up and how my body is a violation of dress code at work. That we are professional, and we are not tattoo artists and hold value to our communities. We are like other people in the community and should be respected like everyone else, but most importantly the reason that I strongly stand behind the way I feel on this subject is for the simple fact; one I have been told to take my piercing out, and to cover my tattoos, and also I have seen the statistic as well. Discrimination is real it is not dress code people can see a person and know if they want to hire you. Personality should be the real judge of character but it is not the case in life all the time. This video below from 2014 is how tattoos have evolved and yet employers
In Forensic Science, you can connect hair, blood, and skin to someone’s DNA. This helps the police find murderers and other criminals. According to the FBI’s Hair Evidence Part 1,” Hairs, which are composed primarily of the protein keratin, can be defined as slender outgrowths of the skin of mammals. Each species of animal possesses hair with characteristic length, color, shape, root appearance, and internal microscopic features that distinguish one animal from another. Considerable variability also exists in the types of hairs that are found on the body of an animal. In humans, hairs found on the head, pubic region, arms, legs, and other body areas have characteristics that can determine their origin. On animals, hair types include coarse
As such, there are many organizations and environments that are embracing to what other people believe are outside the norm. Based on a 2012 Harris Poll which surveyed 2016 adults, the survey implied that 21% of adults living in the United States have at least one tattoo and 11% of American adults have piercings in an area other than their ear; this is an increase in the 2003 and 2008 poll concerning adults with tattoos (Braverman, 2012). The poll included various reasons as to why people sought the piercings or tattoos. Some of the categories for the reasoning behind the tattoo or how a tattoo made the person feel included feeling sexy, rebellious, attractive, strong, spiritual, healthy, intelligent and athletic (with sexy being at the top of the list and athletic being at the bottom) (Braverman, 2012). There are different work environments where the display of tattoos or piercings would be acceptable such as, a hair stylist working in an edgy salon or a sales person whose clients are trendy and chic. In contrast, I can see where tattoos or piercings would not be acceptable in a medical profession or conservative corporate environment. New research shows that such stigma and prejudice lead to workplace discriminatory effects, specifically related to potential employment and workplace
