Mickey Guyton’s Sings ‘Love My Hair’ Because Our Hair is NOT a Distraction
Mickey Guyton is shifting the narrative of country music by sharing black women's experiences with their hair. Mickey’s ‘Love My Hair’ has a powerful message of self-acceptance and the experience many black women struggle with like strangers touching their hair.
Mickey explains she wrote ‘Love My Hair’ after a young black girl was sent home from school because she was told her hair was too distracting. The situation felt very familiar to her and reminded her of her own struggles with her hair.
I wrote "Love My Hair" after watching a video of a little girl getting sent home from school because her hair was too distracting. To that little girl, and anyone facing similar struggles, you are seen and you are loved. ❤️ https://t.co/uuK2YTZyhn pic.twitter.com/3JRN2jGfs4— Mickey Guyton (@MickeyGuyton) September 10, 2021
