Uh-Oh! The Lowdown on Britney Spears's Bad Hair Day

07/22/2010 at 05:37 PM ET


Talk about a bad hair day! Britney Spears was snapped shopping in Sherman Oaks, California, Wednesday with a messy, extension baring look that set the internet abuzz with fans speculating about exactly what was happening to her scalp. Was she going bald? Were her extensions done incorrectly? We checked in with hairstylist-to-the stars Ken Paves–who has his own line of extensions that he uses on clients like Eva Longoria Parker and Jessica Simpson–to learn the truth. “It’s not that big of a deal actually, we have all seen this before. A case of bed head, who hasn’t had it?,” Paves tells PEOPLE. “The truth is that this is exactly how these extensions are applied, however we are not supposed to see them, that’s all. There are thousands and thousands of women walking around whose hair looks just like that ‘underneath’. The remedy is simply to cover it up. It’s not a case of bad extensions, just a bad hair day!” His recommendation? “I am more concerned with the friend walking behind her who didn’t tell her right away! Ladies, support your sisters and stay on weave patrol, your day may come too! Help a sister out!” Tell us: Would you tell a friend if her extensions were showing? Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

when you know your being followed constantly by folks with cameras please take the time if not to shower to run abrush through your fake hair. Whats her problem anyway she has beautiful REAL hair underneath that mess. Grow it in and grow up.

This woman walked into a gas station bathroom with no shoes on. I feel bad for her, most people learn common sense lessons like this in their teens, but in her teens she had yes people do it all for her. In many ways it seems like she’s a twelve-year-old.

I work at a hair salon that does these kind of extentions and I do NOT recommend. They pull-out your hair and I have seen so many people having to chop their hair because of it! They are horrible. She needs to let her hair grow naturally-she’s gonna be completely bald within a year!

Britney! Britney! Britney! You need to do a 360 in the mirror before leaving the house. Check yourself from head-to-toe because you know the cameras will be on you. Wear a ponytail, a baseball cap or a scarf to cover the messy parts. You also need better friends to tell you when you look wrecked! Shame on that girl behind you!
