Oh we do so love Solange Knowles. Isn’t she just the quintessentially cool, super stylish girl next door type, who also happens to be in with the fashion crowd, more often than not providing the soundtrack to their parties. And don’t even get us started on the fabulous-ness of her fro. But hey, it appears that not everyone agrees. Last Thursday we noted that La Knowles taken to Twitter to deliver somewhat of a rant along the lines of the following:
“I never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don’t know the lingo and don’t sleep with a satin cap… However, I did notice that when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a “twist out”. Connnnfesssioonnn: I HATE twist outs. Correction, I hate the way they look on me SO I end up always picking them/ steaming them out. Look, all I’m saying is. My hair is not very important to me… so I don’t encourage it to be important to you.”
After some speedy investigation into what exactly had induced said verbal storm, we discovered that Natural hair blog Curly Nikki had posted an excerpt from an interview with Ms. Knowles in the June issue of Essence about her hair secrets. While some commenters responded positively, many well, erm didn’t, adding comments like the following below the piece:
“Solange wears ‘natural’ wigs more than she wears her own natural and when she does, it looks dry, unstyled and unshaped. If she’s truly proud of her natural look, she needs to get from under the wigs and work with her own hair. She has much potential, but she’s not using it.”
Cue collective, outraged gasping. Right? We for one love the way that Solange so often transforms her locks. Plus we reckon that sometime 'undone' hair is cool, casual and essential sometimes too - Everyone need downtime after all! As far as we’re concerned Solange can wear her hair exactly as she so pleases! Check out the awesome gallery of her looks above.
