In the May 2014 issue of Essence magazine, they choose to feature Solange, Erykah Badu and Ledisi on its cover in celebration for black natural hair.  These three ladies are featured on three separate covers with the headline “Learning To Love Your Natural Beauty.”  Inside the magazine, each of this songstress chat about their hair which is a kind of self-expression.

Ledisi said:

“Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously. 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.”

Solange said:

“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.”

Erykah said:

“I view my hair and clothes as functional art. I’m my own stylist and I love it, but I am not trying to make a statement.”

Aren’t they awesome?
