This is a recent picture of Solonge Knowels at an event. She wears her hair natural. I think it’s beautiful.
For black women, so much of our self-esteem, confidence and self-worth is wrapped around the state of our hair. A “bad” hair day can cross many events off of a social calendar. For so long society, media, pop culture and the work force has dictated what the standard of beauty for black women’s hair should be. The natural hair movement that is currently happening gains even more momentum with black celebrities joining. I find it quite encouraging to see popular, mainstream women be themselves naturally and do so with confidence, grace and a great sense of style while showing their God given beauty.
Who are some naturals that inspire you?
