Chrisette Michele recently shaved her hair. The R&B singer performed at Albany State University in a killer leather jacket, pop eyelashes and a studded beret covering a new colored tampered cut. Chrisette explains her gusty decision stating, “I was tired of black sista’s feeling subject to having their hair pressed and straightened, and damaged, with relaxers, and heat.” The “Epiphany” songtress continues, “I wanted to make short and nappy hair fashionable, and let the industry know that there is nothing wrong with the texture that we have been born with. So I plan to grow it out to the big beautiful nappy hair that I have.” Chrisette Michele who originally sported an afro earlier in her career joins other  starlets like Solange, Indie.Arie and Erykah Badu who once took the bold step, liberating themselves not merely of hair but of industry pressure. Kudos Chrisette!

    good for her, but should we tell her that blonde hair is not “natural”?

  • I’m glad she cut her hair! I always wonder how many artists (or people in general) decide to relax their natural hair because of the pressure of success. I remember seeing pictures of her with a ‘fro before “Lost Ones”, and she was dope! Hope she enjoys her natural journey again!

    Now if we black women could now get rid of the false eyelash trend… No fake her allowed on her head BUT its okay to glue it to your eyelids?????

    Right, so much for natural…

  • Awww, she looks gorgeous!
