Keke Palmer’s Facialist Dermaplaned Her Whole Dang Baby Hairs Off And I’m Screaming

Keke Palmer has suffered one of the worst styling blows.

A week after showing some appreciation and love for her natural-hair growth, the actress and BLM activist has had a pretty wild setback. All thanks to a facial gone wrong.

Over the weekend, the actress shared a selfie video of a recent mishap with her baby hairs.

Taking advantage of the current reopening of beauty business after a long stretch of months without them due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Palmer sought help for her acne from an aesthetician by dermaplaning. As Palmer explains “I just got a facial from this lady,” Keke says in the video. “My skin was acting up —it’s acting up again — and I love the facial. As you can see, the skin is glowing. I mean, whoa. I have a lot of hair on my skin that contributes to me having acne — trying to tweeze it, trying to get rid of it, whatever.”

The facialist used a dermaplaning technique, which is an exfoliation method that sloughs off dead skin cells and facial hair with a blade. The method can help remove causers of acne.

And while it’s always great to be thorough when it comes to facials, as Palmer said in the video, the aesthetician “got all up in there.”

“Removed a lot of that hair. You know, was getting in good,” Palmer said in the video. “But when she was getting the hair, getting my little fur beard lightweight, she ended up also getting my baby hairs. My baby hairs! She took ’em!”

Palmer let out a few groans as she showed the sad empty space that used to be her edges.

In a caption for the video Palmer wrote “SHE TOOK EMMMMMM.”

Of course, as Instagram goes, fans were quick to lighten up the sad news with some laughs and tips.

“Just oil it up … it’ll grow back,” one user wrote while another advised “Cut the dairy, sugar, and drink LOTS of water.”

RIP to Keke’s loved ones.
