The South African beauty vlogger took to Twitter on Tuesday, 27 August 2019 to share that her grandmother did not like her hair after she watched her recent interview on Afternoon Express.
South African beauty and lifestyle influencer, Mihlali Ndamase, was the guest on SABC 3’s talk show, Afternoon Express, on Thursday, 22 August 2019. In a tweet on Tuesday, 27 August 2019, she shared that her grandmother watched the episode, where she can be seen wearing a black wig, and told her that the hair did not make her look attractive at all.
Mihlali has been wearing her hair short and blonde recently and occassionally wears different types of wigs. Explaining her grandmother’s ever-changing sentiments, the beauty influencer stated, “When I first cut my hair, my granny told me I look horrible with short hair, now she called to say she saw me on Afternoon Express and I should never wear wigs again because I look better with short hair”. She went on to say that her grandmother asked her why she decided to wear the wig in the first place and that she should never wear it again.
The beauty influencer was amused by her grandmother’s sentiments and so were Twitter users, who commented in agreement. Twitter user Lindani agreed with Mihlali’s grandmother, saying, “She’s real, short hair suits you”. While another Twitter user, Masego, shared that her mother also agrees with Mihlali’s grandmother, “I was watching the interview with my mom and she says you look prettier with short hair”.
