Solange Knowles Is Pretty In Pink

Solange and her big sis Beyoncè were in Japan over the weekend promoting a collection of handbags from Japanese designer Samantha Thavasa. I just had to post this pic of Solange because I think she looks absolutely stunning!

People have been giving her a hard time lately about going natural, but as someone who once cut her hair this short, I know the guts it takes to make such a drastic change.

If you're considering making the big chop, and are worried about looking like a boy, Solange is a great example of how gorge you can look with super-short hair!

Here's how to recreate her look:

HAIR: Hair is super easy to take care of at this length. Just apply a little bit of Kinky Curly Curling Custard, $17 to wet hair and you're good to go!

SKIN: Having flawless skin like Solo's goes a long way towards a fab look, but Cover FX Powder FX Mineral Powder Foundation, $32 covers any imperfection for a perfect, natural finish. Brush a little NARS Blush in Taos, $25 on cheeks for a pretty flush.

EYES: Try L'Oreal HIP Metallic Duo Eyeshadow in Gilded, $8 for a golden, smokey eye. Sweep the gold shade from lash line to brow bone. Using a eyeshadow crease brush (I swear by Sephora's), brush on a little the deeper shade in the crease of the eyelid. Top it all off with Ardell Strip Lashes in #116, $4.

LIPS: Finsh your look with a swipe of Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipstick in Ms. Understood, $9!

I agree. Solange looks fabulous! I may just cut my natural that length and work that look. Love your updates. Keep up the good work.

I've had my hair this short twice- the problem is that weird in between phase you get to if you cut it off to grow it out.

Great blog layout!

I know, that in-between phase is the worst. I think that's why I decided to relax mine. That and I no longer had the patience to grow it out longer!

Ahh the woes of natural hair! I chose to stick it out during the "in between phase" and now have a nice length of hair. I think the key is finding a stylist you can afford who has the skills to make you look fabulous during the transition. What a challenge. But i support Solange's look, not because I'm natural but because it's her hair and she can do with it what she pleases!
