Shaved Heads - A call to Natural hair or a fashion Fad?
Lately, I've noticed a couple of female American celebrities sporting shaved heads - not the partially shaved reinvented Salt n Pepa look, the real all off coconut/bald head. And some of them are receiving a lotta negative publicity for it.
In my experience, when a woman shaves her head it's usually part of the Big Chop (BC), she's had enough of relaxers or perms or weaves and has decided to try something new.. or boldy enter the world of natural Afro hair.
So.. is Solange going natural because she is 'going natural' or is it (as her critics say) an 'attention seeking act', a 'fashion faux pas' or 'an attempt at copying Amber'? I'd like to think she just felt like going natural (temporarily or permanently) and I think that people who say her head looks like a 'dirty tennis ball' are just being mean!

Solange has allegedly stated on Twitter that it wasn't a publicity stunt, she just wanted to.
I'm all for it... I think she should grow it out and get SisterLocks! Yay!
