‘Do or Don’t? Janelle Monae Unleashes Her Curls at Bonnaroo Music Festival

Janelle MonaeBefore taking over the stage in her signature pompadour, Janelle Monae let her curls down under a black hat. The natural-haired beauty rarely ever unleashes her mane in such a way, so it was a treat for fans to get a peek. But Monae didn’t always love her curly crown.

“Growing up, my mom put relaxer on it,” she told Lipstick last year. “When I was 18, I grew it out and wore it natural, and I haven’t turned back. Then I figured out my style by experimenting. I wanted a look I could walk into a dinner party with and also wear to rock out onstage.”

And that she did.


The supernova pinned her hair up, donned her usual black-and-white ensemble and performed tracks from her Electric Lady LP.

So what do you think, beauties?
