Before last month, Solange Knowles hadn’t strayed from her natural, dark hair in quite some time. But then September came and so did the transformations. First, it was a chop and a brand-new platinum hue, followed soon after by waist-length braids. Since then, she’s gone back and forth between the two hairstyles: cropped and curly, and long and plaited. This weekend, however, she went ahead and spiced things up yet again.
The “Don’t Touch My Hair” singer was in Texas over the weekend for the Austin City Limits Music Festival where she wore her hair in the aforementioned braided style. This time, though, she took things up a notch (or you know, 10) by adding beads into the mix. Knowles took to her Instagram to debut her dope new look in what I’m dubbing now as the coolest selfie ever taken.
Sporting glossy lips and big hoop earrings, she showed off her fresh braids adorned with intricate red beading from her collarbone down. To top it off, she wore red-tinted sunglasses, tying the whole look together with an ultra-cool, low-key futuristic feel. Naturally, her fans went wild over her new ‘do, taking to the comment section to sing its praises.
“This hairstyle,” wrote one user and “Literally every look you have is iconic,” added another. And those were just two of hundreds.
Needless to say, Knowles definitely seems to be having a blast switching her up hair as of late, and I, for one, am totally here for it. Now, what could she be planning next?
