Keke Palmer Talks Her Love For Wigs & Rocks 3 Fly Styles For ‘Mane Addicts’
Actress and all-around entertainer Keke Palmer is no stranger to slaying. So when tress-centric site Mane Addicts snagged the young starlet to pose for a few photos and talk all things hair, it was a match made in heaven.
The result? Palmer rocked three different hairstyles (styled by her longtime hairstylist, Ann Jones): a straight and sleek middle part ‘do, flirty curls complete with a bang, and a clean cut short coif. As we’ve come to know, the 23-year-old loves to express herself through her hair and is unapologetic about it. In addition to the photos, Palmer spoke candidly about the correlation between her hair and the entertainment industry.
Look through the photos and excerpts from her interview below.
On her love for wigs: “I definitely can’t live without wigs. I love, love, love wigs. They’re an accessory in itself. I love playing with them. I love short, long, colored, not colored. Every type of wig I have fun with.”
On her ultimate hair mishap: “When I was 17, I did this short weave bob. It was the most hideous thing I’ve ever done in my life. It was so ugly, the bob looked like a helmet, it was very square-shaped but oval at the same time. It was terrible!”
On cutting her hair: “When I was younger I was like ‘why do people cut their hair?! It’s so ridiculous! I would never cut my hair, I love long hair!’ But now it’s like ‘Cut all that shit off! Who cares, it’ll grow back, do something cool with it!’ I love playing with my hair now, I’m not afraid anymore…Today I just got a red wig, and I posted a bunch of pictures with it because I’m living for it! But I have another wig I’ve been waiting to make for awhile. I can’t tell you the color, but I can tell you that it’s going to be alive! I’m so excited.”
