Those photos above of Solange Knowles are a great example of what many black women go through in terms of their intrepretation of "black beauty." There's not a thang wrong with her short hair. In fact, I love her hair short....back in the day I wore it like that. I just loooooovvved it...but! All women can't sport a style like that. Yet those who can't or couldn't were the MAIN ones always hatin on those who could by callin' the style dyke[ish], unattractive and masculine and that's so far from the truth and we all know it. The look is quite elegant and classy!
During college, in my short hairdo I attracted more men than ever Everytime I turned around there was some man in my face...callin me an African Queen or Black
Beauty. And I wore it short to my head for at least ten years. I stopped only cuz I grew really bored with it after a while. I like to change my hair style every 3 or 4 months depended upon the convenience and durability. I even wore it short during the jeri curl phase. It was sooo tighhhht! When you wear your hair that short it shows the unique features in your face....and draws attention to it. I think she has a nice face for it....otherwise she couldn't wear it with a smile. At any time in Africa, you will see a black woman wearing her hair that short...and it's absolutely gorgeous![A few African models have very short curled hair] We [African-American women] become so conditioned and brainwashed with massa"s view of beauty.....hair DOES NOT make one beautiful. It starts from within....then evolves outward....but!
