Today, my omalicha, nkpulumma’m, #1 hair and style crush, the yummiest of mummies, the flyest, sexy mama and original omoge Ms. Solange Piaget Knowles is a year older!! Whooooooo ^_^
I’d wanted to do this post for the craziest longest time but somehow I didn’t and when I finally came close, I figured I’d wait till her birthday lol I don’t care, I don’t care.
She may not like being thought of as the poster girl for #teamNatural but Solo has been a major source of hair inspiration for me (and I’m sure, for many other naturals), even before I decided to transition.
Solange is testament to the fact that you can look better kinky-curly: she looks more beautiful now with her curls or curly wigs than she did straightened.
When she isn’t rocking her kinky curly halo, she’s still giving it to us, bringing on the volume in massive curly wigs.
Or laying it down in super long box braids
Oh, she isn’t afraid of heat too.
Don’t get me started on her amazing style. I haven’t wanted to raid anybody’s closet so bad since Blair Waldorf/Gossip Girl ended.
I’m going to bottle the rest of my stalker love up for now before it gets really creepy ( ._.)
I leave you with these photos of the Cover girl of Complex mag June/July 2013. From the shoot, and more.
I’ve been listening to her EP ‘True’ since last year and sincerely, I am not tired of it. I love her sound. She recently launched her own label ‘Saint Records’ so be expecting that full length album soon! 😀
