Model, Actress and Activist Ebonee Davis opens up to Allure Magazine about “Good Hair”

Model Ebonee Davis knows it is no secret that growing up as a black woman, your hair is a touchy subject, and the “good hair” conversation is inevitable. But what is “good hair?” This term usually refers to women of color with a loose curl pattern and soft texture and unfortunately leaves out women with coarser texture and undefined kinks. The Perception Institute’s 2017 “Good Hair” study suggests that “a majority of people, regardless of race and gender, hold some bias toward women of color based on their hair.”

According to Davis, “The world is created with whiteness as the standard, the baseline for everything, when whiteness is the standard, anything outside of that is going to be seen as weird or inadequate. You’re programming people to believe that the way that they’re born, the way that they move through the world, the way that they look, their appearance — everything about them is inferior or inadequate.”

“Sometimes I’ll go to set and hairdressers will say, ‘Oh, your hair’s already done,'” Davis shares. “I usually have it in a wash-and-go. They’ll say, ‘There’s not much we can do,’ and I’m like, there’s so much we can do. There are so many options. It’s like architecture. You just have to know how to get in there and work with it.”

Although there is till much ground to cover, we are beginning to see some change about how people view ethnic hair. Davis has been pushing this movement by proudly wearing her natural curl and texture.

“It’s not about perfection, instead it’s about the freedom of loving yourself,” hairstylist Seto McCoy says. “Hair is one of the most important elements to knowing one’s identity. Why not express than unapologetically?”
