The star loves to experiment with not only hair styles, but also colors. She’s heard all sorts of comments about her love of very short blonde hair, but that hasn’t held her back.
“Some people like it; some people hate it. I don’t care either way,” she told ESSENCE. “I did it because I really wanted people to see my face. The thing about me and having dark hair is I felt like I was hiding and the white hair feels like a light bulb. You can’t miss me. I just stopped being afraid of my face. My hair was really long and I just want to spend less time doing it and have you see my face. Never want to hide behind hair. It’s fun and easy to dress.”
