The Pompadour princess is giving us all kinds of life with her new textured faux bob.
Janelle Monáe is a natural hair chameleon. Whether she’s rocking the newly obsessed “Wonda Braid” or a longer version of her classic pompadour, we are loving her free style and fresh take on natural hair. As if we need another reason to hail to the songstress, she recently dazzled with a kinky-curly faux bob at the White House State Dinner and we were all in awe.
Paired with her signature black and white Giorgio Armani tuxedo, the bob was an instant standout. A kinky-curly wig or extension is your best bet when getting the look yourself, but a two-strand twist, curl wand, or braid out would work as well. Create a side part and when taking down twists or braids make sure to keep desired texture and not pull strands a part too much. Hit your roots with afro pick to give fullness and height and if hair is longer than desired length for a bob, tuck it in and pin under your hair to secure.
What’s next Janelle? We’re watching!
