‘This is So Different’: Fans Have Mixed Opinions on Malaysia Pargo’s Braided Blunt Bob

Malaysia Pargo is bringing the blunt cut back, except her new look came with a twist. If you know anything about fashion, you know trends often repeat themselves. The blunt cut is one of those edgy hairstyles that made a name for itself as the hottest hair trend in 2017. The chic cut took over the Fall 2017 runway at Paris Fashion Week, which ultimately led to high-profile celebrities mimicking the style.

It’s been nearly three years since the nation seemed to revolve around blunt cuts, but on Wednesday, April 29, the reality star from “Basketball Wives” took to Instagram to show off her new braided blunt bob.

Pargo, 39, posted a photo that showed her tilting her head to the side as her new hairdo flowed down to her shoulders. Fans claimed her stance made her “look mean,” but her attitude seemed to be delightful, based on her caption. She wrote: “Make the best of everything…Grateful ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ.”

Pargo, whose real name is Laquisha, stirred up a fair amount of controversy on the internet because of her hairdo.

“It’s giving Set it Off vibes.”

“I donโ€™t like it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.”

“What a MEAN look๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ.”

But other fans seemed to admire Pargo’s unique spin on her bob.

“Is your hair braided or is this a braided wig either way it looks bomb โค๏ธ.”

Pargo hinted in an Instagram post from Sunday, April 26, that she was having a movie night at home. At the time, her box braids extended past her shoulders, so she must have recently switched up her look. The mother of three’s signature hairstyle typically consists of silky, straight, long black hair. She advised fans in a 2014 interview with Rolling Out to seek out unprocessed hair when purchasing hair extensions. “What I look for is hair thatโ€™s not processed. If thereโ€™s a process to it, the hairโ€™s not gonna shine the way you want it to and itโ€™s not gonna straighten the way you want it to,” she said.
