Much hoopla has been made over the years concerning Beyonce and her chosen hairstyle- an often light gold-ish blond lace front wig. I never got the controversy and often considered it just a personal style choice. Much like Tina Turner’s wild blond wig of the 80’s, I considered Beyonce’s hairstyle “a defining look”, nothing more- nothing less. However, like all great chameleons, Beyonce is now changing her look by moving away from the blond style that has defined her for almost a decade and has decided instead to take on a much darker look. And though I hear this new look praised by many- it gets a big fat thumbs down from me. Contrary to popular opinion not everyone can wear almost jet black hair. It is almost as dramatic a color as platinum blond and one must have the proper undertones in their skin to truly pull it off- and Beyonce does not pull off this color well at all. Not only does it wash her out and make her look tired, it also reduces her to being just another face in the crowd.
I know Des will agree with me- but can I get anyone else to co-sign (LOL)
