Hippie Buddha, a Korean hairstylist and salon owner, is turning quite a few heads on social media by giving his clients (who are all also Korean) Black hairstyles. Needless to say, Twitter is not happy about it.
Buddhas Instagram, which says he is an African American hairstylist, is littered with images of his finished looks that range from dreadlocks and box braids to full afros. It also features urban wear and traditional African make-up.
This is dread extensions, he boasts in one of his Instagram videos, while a stylist in the salon adds faux locs to a clients hair. In another, he excitedly announces that the salon is working on another afro perm. His videos, which are usually edited to rap music, give his followers an inside look at how he changes 1c hair to 4c curls.
Buddhas hairdressers have even styled children, adding pictures of their coiffed dos to his Instagram page.
