In an Essence article, according to record executive L.A. Reid, when it comes to new artists that are trying to make it in the business, “The hair is as important as the chorus of the song. ” Whoah!
I love good music. And I support black music artists who bring the sounds, lyrics, and LOOKS that align with the way that I want to be represented in society. So, if we’re talking about putting your money where your mouth is, these are the music artists with natural hair I feel good about putting my money into.
Which singers are you bumpin? Is what they do with their hair even important to you?
When I first did the Big Chop, there were many days when I had a hard time “dressing up” my hair.
Yes. I love wearing my natural hair. But I have a TWA (a teenie weenie afro). And I wear it seven days a week. EVERY day I look in the mirror, I still have a TWA. And some days I would like to look in the mirror and see a little more sassy, or sexy, or just different. I love my little afro, but I have to be able to get some diversity in my hairstyles, so I’ve invested in just a few natural hair accessories to help me jazz up my look.
If you’re a new natural or a seasoned Naturalista looking for a way to jazz up your look, here are some ideas for natural hair accessories I wear on the regular that work for me.
HEADBANDS. I’m crazy about them.
I recently purchased this gold leaf headband that has gotten me SO many compliments. I know I say this every time, but this is now my new favorite.
HATS. I live in the South where it tends to be warm, so I love straw hats.
HEADWRAPS. Purchase a long one, so you can experiment with different headwrap styles to find the one that gives you the look you desire.
HAIR CLAMP. Yeah. I know. Too soon. But I had to have it so I could grow into it. LOL
But my all-time favorite go-to natural hair accessory is one that you own. So, this is just some encouragement for you to wear it. It’s beautiful.
