Keke Palmer is definitely not the same little girl from Akeelah and the Bee. She has grown in to a lovely young lady with great style. You never hear anything negative about Ms. Palmer in the media and she is definitely a positive role model for young girls today. She recently debuted a new look and some people aren’t too happy with her new look.

Keke Palmer

Many people feel she looks too “grown” but she is 19 years old now. How should a 19 year old look? I think she still looks youthful. I’ve also heard/read about women saying she wants to be white and embrace the European standard of beauty. People kill me with this “women who wear weaves or have relaxed hair want to be white” theory. It’s called a preference. Are women who wear their hair natural trying to prove their “blackness?” No, so if a person makes a decision to switch up their style why must the reason be negative? Only she (and God) knows the reason she wanted to make the change. The same can be said for Tia Mowry with her new short do. People automatically assumed the worse because she switched her look. I am not saying you have to like the style, but how about we stop trying to rationalize and offer theories to prove why a person should hate the look.

I personally like her new hair color. It’s young and it is fun. I loved the blonde on Ciara, Beyonce, and Rihanna. I am not a fan of it on Keyshia Cole because it is more platinum and this is more honey, but it’s just a color choice. I think it compliments her and it she looks great.

What do you all think about Keke Palmer’s hair? Rock it or Drop it?
