Kardashians Credited With ‘Glass Hair’ Trend, Better Known As The Silk Press

Marie Claire is the latest publication to catch heat for crediting a Kardashian with creating something Black women have done for decades.

The magazine is currently under fire for publishing an article about a new trend they call “glass hair,” saying the Kardashians are the main inspiration for the look. The style is more accurately known as a silk press, a method stylists have been using for years to smooth hair to a shiny, glass-like finish.

After crediting Kim and Khloe Kardashian with starting the trend, Black Twitter fired back with photos of stars like Rihanna, Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson and even the legendary Cicely Tyson all rocking a silk press before the reality show sisters made it cool.
