The Shaven Head it's nothing new!

Solange Knowles currently critized for copying likes of Amber Rose shaven head trend apprently a desperate cry for attention

Solange crying for attention? Solange was simply caught on her hey days, those glasses do her no justice either. This shaven head look is very old, and has been used by several women all over the world. Especially within Africa where this is the most common style for many young girls, as it is a moderation for schools for girls since the 1960's to have cropped short hair. We also see many women for years doing the B/C the Big Chop due to no longer wanting to use chemicals within their hair. Not only this but there are women who simply love it low cut, here are examples of our girls...Amber Rose (glamour model) with blonde dyed shaven

Natural Miss AFROspiration of the Month: Shingai Shoniwa

Brit girl Shingai Zimbabwean descent, sucessful at the beginning of the year 2009 with the hit song "Please Don't Stop the Rythm" by The Noisettes, we totally see this chic as a black British Icon, especially with her individualised fashion style. As well as her hair we love the way she styles it and how she does not conform to the typical relaxed and weaved hair that does not define who we truly are. Shes embracing textures totally not afraid of being natural, do your thing girl! Unkept and raw afro style her back to roots iconic look is turly inspiring. We hardly see many black celebrities like this, I wonder if it would catch on with Beyonce? Didn't think so. Not that we are saying weave is bad either. But it is a different story when it comes to relaxers.
