Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

ESSENCE is celebrating “Black Hair Now” in the upcoming May issue and who better to have on the cover than natural beauty icons Solange, Erykah Badu and Ledisi.  Each musical artist brings their own unique, trendsetting look to the magazine along with stylized expressions of what ‘natural beauty’ is all about.

Check it out below:

Ledisi on viewing hair as an accessory:

“Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously,” says Ledisi, who is loving life with a new album and a new love. “I experiment a lot, dyeing it and constantly switching styles to grab attention. My hair is one of my best accessories and changing it helps express who I am.”

articleSolange on thinking outside the box:

One could never say that Solange has fit neatly into any mold and that’s by design. “We all have the option of how we want to express ourselves through our life, hair, style or whatever we decide. We shouldn’t be pigeonholed into any one category,” she says.

Badu on being style not creating it:

“I view my hair and clothes as functional art,” says the always funky-cool Badu, who is also the new face of Givenchy. “I’m my own stylist and I love it, but I am not trying to make a statement.”

The May issue of ESSENCE is available on newsstands TODAY!

I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

Just about all of what you point out is supprisingly precise and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. But at this time there is actually one particular position I am not too cozy with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your position, permit me observe what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.

Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
