Last week, J. Crew published a black model in one of their Madewell ad campaigns wearing a struggle bun. Anyone who has ever grown out a shortcut can understand the infamous struggle bun.
Black Twitter went crazy over the incorrect styling but most people really just wanted an explanation!

Earlier this year, Victoria’s Secret committed a similar offense. In multiple photos on the VS Pink website, a black model was posted with unkempt hair and people all over social media were livid! it’s not a struggle bun but more like a struggle braid.
“Disrespect. She probably could have done a better job herself. These stylists should be trained on all hair types, not just Becky straight.”
If you think the J Crew and Victoria’s Secret black hair debacles are bad, imagine getting your hair ruined on live tv.
Unfortunately, the black model pictured below got her hair destroyed on the Today Show. The top picture is the model before her makeover. The bottom picture is the model after her makeover, or should we say makeunder? Struggle bun strikes again!!
Which one was worse, J crew, Victoria Secret or Today Show?
