More often than not, when we think of Hollywood we think of celebrities with long flowing tresses. Whether it’s a homegrown straightened flow or expertly installed remy, we often see celebrities gracing the red carpets with straight lengthy opulence.
Every so often a bit of kink stands out; that celeb that has opted for a natural look or faced the world after a big chop. In this post I raise my glass to those who’ve dared to be different.
The year was 1997. Janet was about 30 then and showing us that she still knew how to work the “sexy-cute’ look. This red hair gave me a bit of life then.
Solange. Though I wasn’t fully feeling this length, I applauded her step away from years of being a remy vixen.
Kellis girl this look is what inspired my chop! This was straight up cute.
It may very well be because I thought I had a 0.537% chance with Boris Kodjoe but I actually prefer Nicole Ari Parker with a short straight pixie cut. Don’t get me wrong, she is beautiful and carries the kink well, but that short pixie cut was FIERCE!!
The best thing she did was taking off the wig! I love the length, the smile, her shoulders – I love it! Burn those wigs, they do nothing for you.
After years of having to wear weaves on set Raven Symone was relieved to wear her natural hair, and what happened? She was criticized publicly. Pff! Absolutely Gorgeous! AB-SO-LUTE-LY GORGEOUS!!!
Kimberly Elise ditched straight weaves back around 2010 to become a full-fledged naturalista. Initially she opted for kinky weave until her natural hair gained length. Now she’s one of the Hollywood’s biggest natural hair advocates
Chrisette Michelle’s weaves were beautiful but the TWA was AWESOME!!
