Tiffany "New York" Pollard Goes Natural!

Hey Nikki!

I've been lurking around your site forever and while I absolutely love it haven't participated much. After seeing this link though I absolutely HAD to share it with the Curly Nikki Community! So apparently New York went natural, I'm not sure if it's a wig or not but either way she looks so great with it. I definitely wouldn't have thought she'd shed her signature straight weave, but homegirl looks fierce. Check out the link and watch her photo shoot!

New York has actually been Natural, she just wears weave/wigs. I remeber seeing a pic like a year ago. Either way she looks really pretty with her natural hair.

socialitedreams said...

yeah, saw a year or so ago, she looks way better like that! less trashy...but trashy is her bread and butter, lol, so she'll probably stay extremely weaved up.

Well this is ABSOLUTE proof that black women look better with natural hair and I am not usually one to advocate natural hair as ardently as others are.

I agree At Home Abroad!

Lol, she does actually look like a real person now.
I just wanna pull one of her curls to see how long it is, wouldn't be surprised if it was touching bra-strap or even waist

Lola said...

I wouldn't quite say she's 'gone natural' because judging from the length of that hair, she looks like she's been natural under those awful wigs and weaves. Of course there's nothing wrong with wigs and weaves except she's worn the worse kind possible which made her look 'dragg-ish' (maybe that's what she was going for? *kanye shrug* LOL.

But I digress...she does look beautiful with her own hair. It's funny because yesterday I saw someone who looked just like her on a tumblr page and I just shook my head and thought: "Nah, that's not her, she usually looks clownish, but this chick here is beautiful" OUCH...Now that I've seen this post though, I think it was actually her. I think we should all send her a note to tell her that she's beautiful with her hair like this so she stops the nonsense with those awful wigs and weaves!

Who knew that she was so pretty? I love her natural look much better than her "made-for-tv" look!!! She should not only continue to wear her natural hair, but continue using the make-up without the falsies. She looks great!

I'm calling bullisht on this one. Not seeing any scalp action so... until she has an Oprah moment with Chris Rock digging in her roots...i'm thinking its still a hellahot yaki mess up there...

beadgyrl said...

I agree with everyone above, I like this look SO much better. She looks less 'typical' hollywood with the (weave, fake nails, and boobs). She looks more wholesome, and I love that her outfit is modest and not trashy. Good for you Tiffany. I hope this is the real you, and you won't regress back to the 'New York' persona. :)

She looks better because she is covered up, not just because she doesnt have extensions in. I like how most give back handed compliments, shes a pretty girl.

Tiffany said...

love it!!!!

I'm not sure why everyone is assuming it's her natural hair. In fact, she said my "natural look". Which to me indicates it's a weave or wig. But, I do agree that she looks a thousand times better.

She has been natural for quite some time now. I rembember reading something about it back in 2009(???) or so when her reality show was on. The weaves was just covering it up. I think that it is an improvement that she should stick with.

TiAnna Mae said...

I agree with everyone else! However, ANYTHING would've been better than that mess in her head. You actually can see her beauty and she does look like a normal person.

She's been natural for quite some time, wearing weaves and wigs. I've seen pics of her natural hair well over 2 years ago at a wig store she frequents in Manhattan. She's very pretty.

Sherri said...

I think she looks waaay better! And as far as no scalp being seen, even with a part in my hair, good luck seeing scalp! Unless I have some hair pinned to the side, my scalp is no where to be found!!

Its funny how some the "anonymous" people are so quick to wave the red flag and say ol girl hasnt been natural when I mean forreal how many of yall know you've seen women that have been natural for years but walk around wearing wigs and sew ins. Tiffany is no different check out the pics on bglh if you want a better perspective. Bottom line she looks really pretty and really doesn't need all that hoopla she's been doin in the past. But if she like it I love it.

Channyboo23 said...

Oh and she has also done work with miss jessies products so I don't think you can do that if you weren't actually "natural" http://www.missjessies.com/site/13_misc/MJ_celeb.htm

Soflyy said...

That's a shame that people can't believe it's not her natural hair. She has to do what makes her money. I'm not mad at her. Stop being so negative and give the woman a compliment darn! Envy has never been pretty.

(Caution: Wag of the Judgmental Finger in 1..2…3)
I feel for those people who imitate her character on T.V. You know they are out there. Women are dressing in drag because of people like New York, Mrs. Wendy, and Nicki Minaj (lol…yeah I said it) as if it's acceptable and then she pulls a 180 like naw I really look like a real person. I wish she would have portrayed this image more, but then again we wouldn't know who she was. And to that I say, wig it up and get your money.

I believe Miss Jessie's has a chemical treatment called 'softening', so they don't strictly market themselves as a natural product company.

I wish the best for Tiffany Pollard aka New York. Regardless of her hairstyle, I hope her attitude has become more refined. She was a bit loud, coarse and vulgar for my taste- a typical ugly stereotype of black women.

Breanna said...

I think the natural hair really compliments her much better. I was just watch a video of her on BGLH site, and she really loved showing it off.

Jeannette said...

I paid close attention to her stating that it was her 'natural look.' She never said it was her natural hair, therefore, I'm not sure if I believe it to be her natural hair. But it looks great either way!

MissCurly said...

She looks so much BETTER rocking her natural curls instead of those dang wigs.

She looks more polished in the photo on the left.

I hope it's okay posting this here, but there's a similar post up on bglhonline.com and it seems like this is for real:

Why is it that naturals feel soooo offended when they are criticized for wearing their natural hair but feel the need to bash people who wear their hair any other way?? if you dont like wigs or weave thats your preference, but the way you talk down on them is so hypocritical. What if we saw a site where someone decided to get a relaxer and everyone commented how much better it looks? There would be an outcry. SMH...

I think many (not all) naturals just have a preference for simply natural hair. No attachments, weaves, extensions, etc. Some of us do look with complete disdain and disgust on fake hair, but that is just a preference. Relaxers/straight hair are promoted everywhere as the acceptable standard of beauty for black women, so many people already believe that straight hair looks better and they are not afraid to let a natural know that in NY minute. Lol. That is also a preference.
I understand your frustration and feel you there. It would be best if everyone just kept their personal preference to themselves, unless they want to be complimentary.

natural is for hair, no contest.

She looks gorgeous with her natural hair.

i will be celebrating my 2yr natural anniversary in May. i too, have worn weaves, sew ins and braids (as protective styles). but when my natural hair is out, i get compliment after compliment. its so versatile. i can be straight one day and curly the next. or rock a braid out or pony puff. to each his own. i love weaves and i also love my natural hair. and i think Tiffany looks radiant with her natural...

Too bad she did this after her fame, because a lot of people followed her "look"
