Janelle Monae is a hair-icon for the natural community. The songstress came onto the music industry on her fashion and hair terms and we’ve respected her more because of it. Known for freestyling the pompadour look into many refreshing styles, she still amazes fans when she adds lengths to her already long tresses or lets her curls loose.
As we celebrate the Electric Lady’s birthday, feel free to let her hairstyles inspire you at home.
