Hair Idol: Post your pic(s)!

A_la_Nap-turalA_la_Nap-tural Posts: 409Registered Users
Hello ladies,

So I thought it would be interesting to see what your goals were for your hair. For me, it's encouraging to look at pictures of women with natural hair. It helps me not to go scissor crazy and stick with this growing out process. Not so my hair can look exactly like theirs, but rather to reassure myself that I am not making a mistake by going natural (contrary to what my friends and relatives may say) and, furthermore, cementing that what God gave me is beautiful. Now every time I see someone with natural hair I stare a little in awe....

These are some of my faves:

Love the full soft fro look... and 2-Strand twists in a pin-up style... CUTE!

I can't wait until my hair is long enough to style. So what styles suit you?

    I dont have any hair idols. I cant find anyone with the same texture as my hair to follow. But Tracee Ellis Ross was the inspiration for me to go natural.

    Okay... maybe I wasn't clear :confused: The person doesn't have to have your same texture. It's just someone who you admire for being a natural beauty and that inspires you to continue down your journey to being naturally glam. The 2 ladies in my pics have different textures... I don't care. What style do you see that makes you go "ooooh, that's perdy!":afro:

    I picked up a natural hair magazine before I BC'd and Lisa Arrindell Anderson did an article on her hair and why she chose to go natural. I think that was the final deciding factor for me. If I could find the pic of her from the magazine I'd put it here, but I can't so this is what you get....

    Janelle Monae is absolutely Fab.u.lous. I'm more than a little obsessed with her in general, but especially that fro pompadour. Here are some pics:

    I also reeeeeally love Sabina Karlsson's hair. I love that Glamour Magazine left her hair natural for this shoot:

    Joy Delane has always been my hair idol. She inspired me to the BC. I love her style overall. She is gorgeous with her many ways of wearing her natural hair. Kelis and Tracy Ellis Ross are also high on my list.

    I want this pony tail!!
