This weekend (August 9) marks what would’ve been Whitney Houston’s 51st birthday.
The music legend left a legacy that supersedes her vocal ability and charismatic personality, but also a notorious knack for spot-on hair. Like her voice her hair was in a lane all on its on. She had her own distinctive look—not too crazy but far from boring. Which is why upon losing the diva we also lost her tresses as well.
One of the originators of the natural hair movement, Whitney has tried it all from big curls to short ‘fros. She inspired than musically but also stylishly with her best accessory (outside of her smile) her hair. Celebrate the true icon with a look back at her best tress moments.
