I think if your hair has the ability to do the black hairstyles and you make it look good why not. What is it doing to hurt the black people? I'm infatuated with all the braids twists cornrows etc. that black people do. If I use it and it looks good on me, it my hair so there for its myhairstyle. I dont see it belonging to black people when it my head of hair. C'mon people it just hair, live a little. A part life is trying new things right. I'm not saying go do crazy thing all the time, but putting other girls down for wearing "black hairstyles" is very hurtful. It's my hair and my choices and it shouldn't bother you that much. I'm not hating on anything except the hateful comments over some hair and what ethnicity it belongs too. Why wouldn't I be able to wear a hairtsyle because it was less fortunate for someone else?
What's wrong with copying a culture?

I agree - I don't see the fuss - If you admire a style from another culture or race it is fair enough to wear it - I only have a line for things that would have maybe religious or cultural significance and the wearing of them may seem to belittle them - An example would be a Christian or non Christian having a a crucifix tattoo for cosmetic purposes - I have always liked the braids/cornrows on black girls amd think it can look very well on white girls as well.2

Copying is the greatest form of flattery.
The person may not be doing it to offend or mock a person or culture, they may just really like it and want to rock it. Like in your case. :)
I love wearing my hair straight. Does that mean I'm stealing white people's culture? No. I just like the style and want to wear it.6
