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

Brittany just cuts her hair when shes stressed,im sure shes quite fine and would be better if people would stop focusing on her looks i think its great she goes out in public despite this problem instead of being afraid too!

What is it with hair extensions, fake tans, botox, plastic surgery, designer clothes, bags & shoes. Just a bunch of fake people waking around.

C’mon Ken, that is NOT bedhead, that is cheap, done at home weave. She has waaaayyyy to much money for that. YOU need to help a sister out and get her weave back on track (pun intended).

I love her and I don’t care about her hair, no more than she does. She doesn’t care what she looks like when she is not on the stage or working, she’s over it already, we get like that when we become mature!

I am with you MRL…… My hair looks very similar to Jessica Simpsons and hers too is fake….Grow it yourself….and we won’t have this problem!

It’s not that people can’t grow their own hair but when you’re a person (celebrity or not) who likes to change up alot (i.e-color, length, etc..) It’s alot less stress on your real hair to use fake hair instead. TONS of celebrities do it because they like to constantly change their looks.
