I was thinking the same things as sew and sew when I saw the pics last night. I like it better than the old helmet hair, but I'm not a huge fan of that style on her. I prefer the side-swept look in the second picture.
I wish she and the girls could wear their hair natural but it would be career suicide for her and her husband. When even 3a hair is vilified as unprofessional and messy, nappy hair just plain can't be done. It makes me mad and it's not okay, but that's how it is these days. Racist.
