    Glamour magazine, arbiter of the dos and don’ts of fashion, recently dispatched an unnamed editor to an NYC law firm to present a slide show to employees about the dos and don’ts of professional dress. The conclusion, according to a write-up in American Lawyer magazine? Black hair is a BIG don’t.

    First slide up: an African American woman sporting an Afro. A real no-no, announced the ‘Glamour’ editor to the 40 or so lawyers in the room. As for dreadlocks: How truly dreadful! The style maven said it was ’shocking’ that some people still think it ‘appropriate’ to wear those hairstyles at the office. ‘No offense,’ she sniffed, but those ‘political’ hairstyles really have to go.

    Luckily, Jezebel reports, a partner at the firm later sent out a memo that basically said the presentation was a big mistake and complete bull****. But come to think of it, the editor had a bit of a point, you know. Natural hair is really political — like wearing a business suit cut from kente cloth and refusing to allow white devils in the office to speak directly to you.
