5 DAYS IN HAIR

5 times Solange’s hair-earring combo changed the game

By Maybelle Morgan, 18 May 2017

Her cool credentials are through the roof, her music gives us life (A Seat at the Table <3) and one look at the woman and you know she's a hair icon. She also knows a power pair when she sees one: awesome hair deserves next-level ear-bling in Solange's world. And we're here for it. Here's five examples to crush on...

Does it get any cooler than this? Nope. Her slick centre-parted scoop bun is the perfect blank canvas for an added playful vibe: cue rows of silver hair clips on either side. Finished off with glossy pearl drop earrings and a sheeny, shiny blazer. Perfection.

Tease me

Big hair, don’t care. Yep, if low-maintenance is your middle name, this look is the one. Let your natural hair take centre stage by picking your fro with a wide-tooth comb for XXL volume. Keep make-up to a minimum and bring the glam via gold, long-drop earrings. Add an oh-so-pretty sheer dress and you’ve got your go-to getup for parties.

Wave it

For all your fancy RSVPs, this is the 'do that hits that glam-meets-chic balance. Use your fingers to lightly separate sections of your twist-out for controlled extra volume. Make the vibe super-60s with sleek silver neck-grazing earrings and graphic liner. Finish with halterneck anything and win the show.

Calling all glam girls, this is your simple fast-track to BNO queen status. Coif hair to the top of your crown, secure with a band and use a curl-defining cream and fingers to define and pull some tendrils loose. To give it that extra-cool, pair with graphic liner and some asymmetric ear-bling. Finish with an 80s-style metallic one-shoulder dress and hit the dancefloor.

Side chick

It’s the Met Gala, so the bigger the better, right? Go natural with a little curl-defining cream and wide-tooth comb to amp up the volume. Opt for minimal make-up plus strong brows, and, if you dare, graphic jaw and earlobe liner (yep, you heard us). For that finishing wow, add chunky earrings. All hail the queen.
