by Ayla Stewart from Wife With a Purpose – Hairstyles; How Much is Too Much?
Editor’s note: Ayla is complaining about these hairstyles, braided like something out of HBO’s hit show ‘Game of Thrones’. Beautiful, but not very practical for day to day life, they look more like something you might do for a wedding or special event. But that does not stop Ayla from adding them to the list of sinful immodesty. What do you think?
These hairstyles are amazing and my mind is blown at the talent of these stylists. Women’s social media right now is full of quickly edited videos that show how you can turn braided hair into elaborate designs, some looking like hats, bows and flowers. It seeme like innocent fun however many might not realize that the Bible warns us against these sorts of things.
In 1 Timothy 2: 9-10 we read, “Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.”
Now, I’ve spoken to many Biblical scholars about this passage and they have told me that it refers to the lavish, costly and ornate braided hairstyles of that time period that women would spend days creating, not simple braids like you might see on Little House on the Prairie. It’s interesting to me that in this time today when we see more and more people rejecting Biblical counsel on homosexuality, divorce, abortion, socialism, leadership, chastity, the family, hard work, modestly, etc. that we also see the rerun of these sorts of hairstyles.
