Uh-Oh! The Lowdown on Britney Spears's Bad Hair Day

07/22/2010 at 05:37 PM ET


Talk about a bad hair day! Britney Spears was snapped shopping in Sherman Oaks, California, Wednesday with a messy, extension baring look that set the internet abuzz with fans speculating about exactly what was happening to her scalp. Was she going bald? Were her extensions done incorrectly? We checked in with hairstylist-to-the stars Ken Paves–who has his own line of extensions that he uses on clients like Eva Longoria Parker and Jessica Simpson–to learn the truth. “It’s not that big of a deal actually, we have all seen this before. A case of bed head, who hasn’t had it?,” Paves tells PEOPLE. “The truth is that this is exactly how these extensions are applied, however we are not supposed to see them, that’s all. There are thousands and thousands of women walking around whose hair looks just like that ‘underneath’. The remedy is simply to cover it up. It’s not a case of bad extensions, just a bad hair day!” His recommendation? “I am more concerned with the friend walking behind her who didn’t tell her right away! Ladies, support your sisters and stay on weave patrol, your day may come too! Help a sister out!” Tell us: Would you tell a friend if her extensions were showing? Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

OMG~~~!! How could no one not see her leave the house this way, or sit in the car with her and not see this mess??? That is embarrasing, and she’s gotta feel pretty mad about this..
Of course, tell your friends/sisters, and even ‘stranger’ if you feel they could handle it!!This is so sad to see, and why does she need extensions anyway??? She has a normal head, why can’t she grow her own hair out?? Tell me why Ken Paves??

A bizarre woman, with no career anymore. She needs to pack it in, and go live the rest of her life out of the lime light. She’s clearly checked out of the Hollywood scene mentally anyway.

There are no words. I thought she would have a lot more hair then that now . . .OMG.

Turtle on

I know, how about a brush or a comb and a mirror and a couple of minutes to look at the back of your head!!!! She doesn’t care or take care of herself. Don’t blame anyone else for Brit’s lackadaisical (at best) approach to hygiene and self-respect.

Can’t anyone grow their own hair anymore???

OMG! How could she not have looked at the back of her head before leaving home! Really now, was she in that much of a hurry to not check her hair? Someone behind her should have said something to her, now it is so embarassing for her to see this. But then again, look in the mirror Britney, as it doesn’t take that long to check your looks before you get into the public eye.

Absolutely agree with Turtle. She looks like she didn’t bother to shower that day nor look at herself in the mirror. I ALWAYS do a quick full mirror check front and back before I leave the house, even if it’s just to bring in the garbage cans from my sidewalk. It’s called self-pride, looking presentable. Everyone should get some.

he is a liar. her hair is NOT supposed to look like that with those extensions….it is ratted and matted. I guess he is too busy trying to suck up to the stars than to give REAL and HONEST criticisms. He didn’t have to slam her but anyone knows LOOKING at that pic her hair is not healthy and those extensions are not helping…wow what a chump

macy on

If it’s truly “bed head” that means she didn’t shower that morning. Ugh. Wonder if she brushed her teeth and put on new make up. Or is that make up she’s wearing from the previous night? Yikes. Got hygiene?????

Kelly on

Lot of problems happening. Shouldn’t her own hair have grown out by now or ???
