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

Umm, try again Ken.

This is what she gets for being such a whack-job and shaving her head. yes you are supposed to look at all sides in the mirror before leaving the house so this doesn’t happen…

THAT does NOT look normal! It looks as if she’s missing several extensions and even if she had brushed her hair, I don’t see how the rest of her hair could cover up that hole in the back of her head. I am sincerely embarrassed for her!

A bad hair day??? You have got to be kidding! Ken Paves is an idiot to say that and clearly a liar! I would never let him touch my hair. That mess on her head is atrocious.

I don’t understand. She is a young, healthy woman; my friends and I all (thankfully) have full heads of hair at 30. Why does she need extensions to just have a normal looking amount of hair? Her hair looks very thing here.

Again, just confused. I understand using them to enhance your image during performances/cover shoots, but why day to day?

Maybe they ruin your real hair if you use them for too long. Like fake nails ruin your real nails.

Holy cow! I am so glad now my mother pestered and pestered me, until it became entwined with the fabric of my being, to brush my hair before I went out in public…

Good advice Ken! : )

Obviously there is something still wrong with her if she thinks its ok to leave her house looking like this KNOWING she will be photographed – very troubled girl.

Jen on

She would have looked so much better if she would have let her out grow out naturally. There are a lot of cute styles you can do with short hair until it grows back on its own. Why the blonde extensions? Why look the same 100% of the time?
