Essence Magazine celebrates black beauty in their May 2014 issue!
Who better to represent natural black beauty then Erykah Badu, Ledisi, and Solange. The three each have their own covers and all 3 look completely radiant.
The three beauties talk about their views on black hair and style, and the natural hair movement.
Erykah Badu on hair as art:
“I view my hair and clothes as functional art. I’m my own stylist and I love it, but I am not trying to make a statement.”
Ledisi on her natural hair:
“Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously. I experiment a lot, dyeing it and constantly switching styles to grab attention. My hair is one of my best accessories and changing it helps express who I am.”
Salonge talks about her views on natual hair:
“We all have the option of how we want to express ourselves through our life, hair, style or whatever we decide. We shouldn’t be pigeonholed into any one category.”
