When the glorious Faith Evans stopped by the ESSENCE.COM offices earlier this week, not only did we love her new CD, “Something About Faith” — we were struck by her lovelier-than-lovely auburn waves! Here we chat with the chanteuse about her signature red locks… ESSENCE.COM: Since you first stepped on the scene in the mid-90s, you’ve worn either blonde or red hair. What’s your natural hair color? FAITH EVANS: My hair’s actually really dark, but since I’m so fair, I never felt like it suited me. The blonde was definitely fun, but it was hard on my hair. So I started going red. ESSENCE.COM: Red looks so natural with your peaches-and-cream coloring! EVANS: I really prefer red over the blond. It always gets such a positive reaction from people! I think the cinnamon-y tones really warm up my complexion. ESSENCE.COM: Hair color can take a toll on your strands. How do you keep your hair healthy? EVANS: Well, I’ve been really into wigs lately! They’re fun and a great way to experiment.
