Singer and reality tv star Amara La Negra is nearly unrecognizable in a new shoot she revealed on Love & Hip Hop Miami Monday night. Lensed by Simply Jess, the “I Am Not My Hair”-themed shoot captures Amara in a series of pics without her signature afro — including a rooted blonde wig and cropped blonde pixie.

The spread was inspired after the beauty reached out to Love & Hip Hop NY cast member JuJu to talk through her ongoing dust up with fellow cast mate Young Hollywood about the elegance and appropriateness of her perfectly coiffed afro and the pressures for Afro Latina women to white-wash their blackness.

While Amara has no plans on changing her signature coifed afro, she shared that she is (and has) switched up her tresses – but always on her own terms and not to fit in to any mold.

“I make my own rules. I am beautiful the way that I am and that’s all that matters!,” she said.
