    Default Why is she holding a fork?

    Site linked: http://hellobeautiful.com/mommy-beau...ack-kids-hair/

    I just need to know why she's holding a takeout plastic fork while gripping this child's hair?
    Don't click on the link to "see more"about the site. I don't think it actually exists. It goes to some sort of pop up spam.

    KeshaNicole, the photo on the page you linked to is taken from a story that was discussed on NP a while ago.

    The person holding the fork is the child's adoptive mother.

    She's using it to help comb or style her daughter's hair. A fork has a similar structure to a hair pick. From what I can tell, that's why it's being used.

    The website is awesome. I picked up a technique or two from there. For instance, if I recall correctly, I started learning how to do rope twists while browsing her work. One thing she does incredibly well is changing up the parts and thusly the designs of very simple child-friendly techniques. It adds so much variety without increasing the time needed for each child's head.

    It's not a women it's a white professor and his adopted (ethiopian I think) daughter. He does her hair this way which we later found out A LOT of parents use this method to part the hair. He actually does a really good job.

    Here's a link to the story

    ^Ditto! I was like 'Maybe that's a very specifically used pick that i've never heard of. But it looks like a plastic fork.'

    I think I will check out the site as I am in need of new styling arsenal. I've been contemplating a twa but some days I still like a baa!
    Yeah. I said it.

    You know, the only difference between a pick and a fork is sharpness and the number of teeth.
