BEAUTY– how it gets defined is always intriguing . I once read a story about a person who had no teeth. The person sharing the story reported she had never seen such a beautiful human being. The beauty she said was in the happiness of his eyes and smile. It was in his demeanor. Everyone who was lucky enough to be in this person’s presence felt mesmerized by the beauty this person radiated. No teeth. And beautiful nevertheless.
How many of you were fortunate enough to see the young, and beautiful African-American woman Gabrielle (Gabby) Douglas perform in the Gymnastics competitions? How many of you saw her fly through the air with sheer strength, precision, and grace? Courage in its highest form. This young woman took her body to the level of winning a GOLD medal! She is the first African-American woman to win the All Around in the history of the Olympic games.
Well, if you were one of the many focusing on Gabby’s hairdo, I’m afraid you missed the show…and you missed history in the making.
At HairBlues we were astounded by the conversation that evolved during Gabby’s Olympic performances. We considered that those who were discussing Gabby ‘s hairdo had possibly missed the show. That is the only way we could explain this mind-boggling occurrence!

The show Gabrielle Douglas gave the world was singular in its accomplishment. That’s how she earned the Gold Medal for the United States. She is the best in the world, folks, in her Olympic category the All-Around.
As the saying goes “let’s not get it twisted”. How many feats can you do (or anyone you know) flying through the air – and keep your hairdo in place at the same time?
