Back when we knew Solange Knowles as Beyonce’s micro-braided kid sister, we had no clue she’d become a tress trendsetter! Check out our timeline of the singer/actress/DJ’s standout hair moments.
At an MTV TRL appearance in 2006, Solange sported long, amber-hued waves and side-swept bangs.
Solange Knowles hit a 2008 People magazine party rocking a head full of lush, jet-black ringlets. Love the teal eyeshadow!
Wearing a blunt cut blowout with eyebrow-grazing bangs, Solange Knowles hit a Dita Von Teese party in L.A.
At the 2009 MTV Music Awards, Solange debuted the ’do that spawned a million imitators—a super-short natural with a super-cute, deep side part.
By early 2010, her closely cropped cut had grown out into springy, two-inch long coils. She flaunted the chic look at star-studded leukemia benefit.
Solange debuted her wild, sexy extensions at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. Chaka Khan would be proud.
By November, Solange was back to flaunting her natural hair—soft, full, springy coils. Paired with strong brows and wine-stained lips, this look rocks.
Always on the cutting edge, Solange sported butt-length, early ‘90s-style braids—plus a chic, African print turban—at the grand opening of Las Vegas’ Marquee nightclub.
At a Hollywood dinner party last week, Solange swept her braids up in a wildly glamorous, oversize topknot. We imagine we’ll be seeing versions of this uber-elegant bun everywhere, very soon.
