Who is your idol for the curly hair?

AdraMierAdraMier Posts: 108Registered Users
My idol is Tracee Ellis Ross. Why I picked her? Her status made huge impact and influence on the curly hair community. Every woman want her hair during her era. I think she is most influenial icon of hair fashison era for natural curly hair.

Tell me one or two reasons why you love her or his hair? Non-celebrity or celebrity. Let have fun with your thinking of who you admire mostly. Do not forget this is 2010.

    me!

    i love my hair because it's mine, it's easier to compare and contrast my own hair to itself rather than someone else's, and i love looking through my fotki and seeing how my hair has changed through the years.

    since you said "don't forget this is 2010", it made my choice much easier. years ago i probably would have had a list of other folks i considered to be my hair idol, but now i have way to much devotion, admiration, and adoration for my own hair to choose anybody else!

    LOl Sub beat me to it... ME!! I'm too busy trying to tame my mop to think about somebodies elses.. I wish i had a fotki to look back on i need to make one lol.... and tracee's hair is very much like mine a few years ago she annoyed the sht out of me and I would never wear my hair like hers, i've embraced the mop now lol the bigger the better... but she has tamed her mop too over the years she doesnt wear it as big or as "natural" meaning her natural individual curls, as she use to, it seems like she has a twist out or bantu knots or some type of style her curls are way bigger and her hair isn't as huge/curly/puffy as it is in its "natural" state..

    Subbrock, That's fine with me. I can tell that you are worshiping your own hair. I understand that your hair is your baby. lol. Anybody can do that. ;-)

    I want to explain little bit why I picked Tracee Ross, her famous hair changed who I am. When I saw her on Girlfriend DVD, I decided to go natural. That's history. :-)
  • AdraMierAdraMier Posts: 108Registered Users
    Curly, Tracee must have top hairstylist who do her hair in different styles. I feel that she knows how to do her own hair too after learned from her hairstylist.

    Well I don't have "hair idols"...

    But 2 women that have hair that I just think is fabulous is Kabra Kasai (an Ethiopian Jewish Israeli singer and Yvette Nicole Brown (an actress)..here are photos:

    Kabra Kasai:

    She usually has jet black hair....but I guess she decided to lighten it at one point.. couldn't find the pics with black hair.

    She has lovely hair but it looks odd it looks plasticy maybe too much product and the way the curls are on the top layer looks like it's been styled or something... I wanted that girth and length for a moment until i saw this video lol.. she fluffs it... really nice though why can't my hair dry with minimal shrinkage and look like that with conditioner only :(

    Very Sexy Hair for anyone with this hair type. I do like her hair too.

    If you want this hair then you can get it. It will be long time to have length hair. You can do that. :-)

    I looked at Amel Larrieux's hair, her hair is different than others. She can do by curly, wave, and stright. She is pretty.

    Vashtie and Maya have common curly hair like 3b, they still have pretty hair.

    I bet a lot of women want Kelis to go back to old Kelis.

    Yes, I noticed that. Chili has more wave than curl hair. Her hair is not really bomb to me.

    i LURVEEEEE Tarens hair, ive learned so much about my own hair from watching her videos.. we have similar hair (ALOT of fine hair, my curls are just tighter) so the products she uses often work for me..
    kabrinas hair is very pretty too.. i dont really watch her videos though cause all she talks about is miss jessies (which im not interested in) lately.

    I don't have idols but inspirations

    First is my mom who has been natural all her life.
    Then some of the girls you've listed. My all time favorites is Amel because I think she's my long hair curly/wavy twin. I just can't seem to get her length. I want to rock some pocahontas braids like this:

    p22864oa4ma.jpg
    6a00d8357c6b5b69e2010535c1f264970c-.jpg

    These ladies are from my inspiration album (some of these ladies are not famous):

    She has aged beautifully:rashad20.jpg

    The contrast of their jet black hair and dark brown skin is soooo pretty. Don't know who they are:
    twins-inspiration.jpg

    and THIS is how I should have worn my hair for my wedding instead of trying to wear it straight:
    spring07_hair1a.jpg

    And the alltime favorite movie for curlyheads. I swear Eve's Bayou had the best hair porn:
