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

Its nice that Ken Paves isn’t bashing her because he couldve but he decided to give an insight to it. I’m upset that the chick behind her didn’t tell her anything. I had that same look but it was from resting my head on the head rest in the car. I guess from constantly lying om my extenstion it looked just like that. So when I stepped out the car the back of my head looked exactly like that. Luckly I had my driver an he told me about it. Its sad that her friend behind her didn’t say anything to her.

While I wish nothing but the best for her, it is obvious that she’s a person who needs someone to look over her constantly. Her mental illness is not something that’s just going to disappear, and the lack of personal hygiene and capability to care what you look like when you walk out of the door clearly shows that even if she’s taking her meds, she’s better off staying under the conservatorship (not that it seems to be helping with her appearance much though…)

Why does she need fake hair anyways, she is not black. I have never understood why any white person has needed extensions and looking back at pictures of her without extensions she has very beautiful hair . I think she gets tired of being dolled up like a barbie all the time so when she is off living normally she just does not give a damn about how she looks , the back of her head looks horrible and she probably paid several thousands dollars to get her hair done. The hair extensions themselves look great and like her own hair but the problem is whomever did the extensions did not put enough of them in

Hair Extension are very bad for the hair folicala. The weight on the end of your hair pulls on the follical and literally pulls the hair out by the root. Also, if you do not make sure to scrub your scalp fungus can start to grow depending on how tight they are.

What we women do in the name of bueaty is distrubing.

Last but not least, people who are suffering from severe depression rarly shower or take care of basic hygene. They are usually walking zombies. This picture shows how much pain this poor girl is in. She needs help.
