Solange Knowles Shaves Her Head: Love It or Hate It?

Splash News Online; Tony DiMaio/Abaca

First Cassie shaved off one side of her long locks. Carmen Electra soon tried out a look that mirrored the style, before trend-setter Rihanna gave the entire lower half of her short coif a buzz. And now Solange Knowles has taken Hollywood’s shaving trend to the extreme, shearing all her lanky hair off to a near buzz cut. And while for an event last night she kept the look under cover with a blunt-banged bob wig, today she took her new closely-cropped look out and about in L.A. Tell us: What do you think of Solange’s new bald do? Should she show it off — or do you think she should keep the look under wraps?

oh no….. Solange what ARE you thinking?? Your sense of style is….well rather tasteless. This is a wrong decision and you need a WIG like now!!!!

I am not normally a fan of this hair style on women, but it really works for her! I think she looks really cute!!


She isn’t the best looking to begin with, just makes her look worse.

I don’t see the point in shaving off your hair and then throwing on a wig when you’re out or at a function….??

Love it. For a while there, she was starting to resemble her fake-ass sister.

Loves it. More of us black women should follow Solange’s path.

You nailed it right on the “head” (no Pun inteneded)!

There are other ways to make a fashion statement, and this is truly not one of them.

Honestly, she looks more like a he than a woman now. It’s not the cut though, it’s the shaving with her lips. Perhaps it’s just a bad picture, however, I think she looked better with longer locks.
