The female magazine Essence is pulling a triple threat by enlisting entertainers Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi to cover their upcoming April issue. The three cover ladies also had some things to say about changes in black hair and style, and the natural hair movement.
Solange on her evolving style:
“We all have the option of how we want to express ourselves through our life, hair, style or whatever we decide. We shouldn’t be pigeonholed into any one category.”
Erykah Badu on hair as art:
“I view my hair and clothes as functional art. I’m my own stylist and I love it, but I am not trying to make a statement.
Ledisi on her hair:
“Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously. “I experiment a lot, dyeing it and constantly switching styles to grab attention. My hair is one of my best accessories and changing it helps express who I am.”
The issue hits stands April 4th.
