Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles & Ledisi Cover Essence Magazine’s May’14 Issue

Essence Magazine is celebrating natural hair with three of the celeb-sphere’s best known natural hair bearers – soulstress Erykah Badu, singing style icon Solange Knowles and singer-songwriting actress, Ledisi, who each cover the mag’s May issue.

In the “Black Hair Now” edition of the magazine, each natural hair pin up talks about their style and about what their hair means to them, with Erykah Badu, the current face of Givenchy, saying:

“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.”

Solange, who holds the position of creative director at Puma, explains:

“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.”

And eight-time Grammy nominated Ledisi, tells Essence:

“Although I’m known for my long, colourful 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.”

Well, you can check out those colourful locs on one of Essence’s covers, as well as the beautiful ‘fros on Solange and Ms Badu, below;
