What sparked our inspiration to create this post was seeing photos of singer Amerie’s new bleach blonde hair.
Amerie on why she went platinum:
“I’ve always wanted to go platinum blonde, and I figured I’d finally just do it,” she says “One of the things that inspired me are photos I’ve seen of children in the Solomon Islands. They are very brown-skinned, and a lot of them grow white-blonde hair naturally. The contrast in dark skin tone and extremely light hair is really beautiful to me. So I just went for it!”
Then, just last week, photos from a recent Erykah Badu performance surfaced on the ‘net, revelaing her new blonde ‘do as well.
We were so unimpressed that we chose to speack on it. Below are a few more sistas who attempted to get a blonde (or blonder) upgrade…but FAILED!
FYI: Because I know you’ll ask, the latina underneath Beyonce’s pic is a singer named Talia Coles.
Now, these following ladies got it right!….
From seeing the different ranges in skin color, I do believe a light hair color such as a shade of blonde can look good on just about anyone. You just have to research the science of which shade goes with what complexion best. It has a lot to do with skin color, undertones, hair style, and natural hair texture. If you keep all those in mind, you can’t go wrong!
Wrap-up: The sistas featured in this post are all beautiful none-the-less, but like they say…“everything ain’t for everybody!”
