This week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West–along with their families–celebrated the 5th birthday of their daughter, North West.
The couple’s first child together happens to be mixed–as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are a biracial couple. Kim has said in the past that she had to learn how to style North’s hair from when she was very young because the textures are completely different from her own. But, she was determined to learn how to do her daughter’s hair and met with several stylists to get tips and pointers.
But, this week for her 5th birthday, North stepped out serving up some looks. And, we can’t believe how big she’s gotten.
Obviously, she looks adorable (and, just like her mom!). But, some people were pretty angry that Kim Kardashian allowed her daughter to straighten her hair at such a young age. Others were angry that Kim “refused” to let North rock her natural hair.
Y'all…. Kim really straightened out her baby's hair. That's sad, what is she like 6? Leave her natural hair alone

Random opinion: I hate that Kim straightens North’s hair. She’s a mixed child and she should embrace her natural hair. Idk If I have a mixed child I would want them to embrace their natural hair and not fall under the pressure of having to have “straight” hair to look nice.

Kim WTF 😱 What have you done with the beautiful and curly hair of the North ??????? It's so strange to see her with this straight hair 😟 I confess that I preferred it as before

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Kim K's anti-black ass doesn't want North running around with curly hair (even if it is a texture praised by black people). Those heifers want to wear the parts of black womanhood that give advantages while keeps white skin and straight hair.

North West has always been the cutest but ever since they’ve been straightening her hair people have been acting like she just grew into this supermodel overnight . STRAIGHT HAIR DOESNT MAKE YOU BEAUTIFUL. Don’t let them ruin her curls @KimKardashian ! 😩

@KimKardashian gutted you’ve straightened North’s hair. it’s important to do everything to help young children embrace who they are & show them they don’t have to just look up characters/ princesses idols all with straight hair. 5 is young to make changes to make you feel good.

But, others were loving the look and defending Kim for letting her daughter straighten her hair for a “special event” like we all did when we were younger.
I literally have no words. Y'all are really, honestly, genuinely upset that Kim decided to let North have her hair straightened? Mind. Your. Fucking. Business. Let her breathe, just this once. It's Norths birthday. Straight hair isn't gonna fuck her up for life.

Exactly its probably like you said flat ironed or she got a blow out/silk press that's usually norm for natural hair if you want to temporarily rock straight hair but why is it anyone's prerogative last I checked North West mama is @KimKardashian so pls don't get it twisted

I just saw a thing talking about the internet is criticizing Kim Kardashian for straightening North’s hair for her 5th birthday. Y’all never begged y’all mamas for straight hair for a special event as a kid?

North West with straight hair is really giving me life…..ps I am well aware that I am 31 years old and really just said that.
— Melynda C (@MelCC27) June 16, 2018
Y’all people saying “why would you straighten her beautiful curly hair” under pics of North probably the same ones who’s mom whipped out the flat irons for every important event. Y’all do one big chop and wanna talk about everyone else’s straight hair. Shut yo bald asses up.

North is biracial. So straight hair, curly hair, whatever style she fucking wants is ok. Y’all trippin.
