Venus Williams Rocks a Curly Puff on the Tennis Court

Is this going to be Venus’ new competition look?! While competing at the 2013 Sony Open yesterday Venus rocked a cute tie dye outfit and a curly puff — a departure from the braids and extensions she normally wears. We definitely approve of this and hope this will be her new default look 😉 Check it out:

It also looks like yrs of weaves and wigs have taken a toll on her edges.…

true and many black women have been there. A couple of months of gentle handling and massaging with JBCO + rosemary will bring those edges back to life.

I agree. Some people are really in denial. Oils and products only work if your hair follicles are not permanently damaged. Both Venus and Serena have been rocking these thin hairlines for a very long time now. I highly doubt they can be brought back to life with (castor) oil. I have several family members as well who’s hairlines are completely GONE due to chemicals and weaves/wigs. No amount of oil rubbing will save them. If the follicles are indeed damaged, only a hair transplant will help (and in some cases it’s even too late for that). I hope other… Read more »

You’re right it depends on the individual. There was a post on here by strawberricurls who helped her mom grow her edges back that was damaged from weaves and relaxers with JBCO. I’ve also read a story about a girl who was told by doctors that her hair follicles were damaged and her hair would never grow back and they actually did when she went natural. At the least, every person that is dealing with damaged edges should not give up but try to take care of their hair and think of laying of relaxers, weaves, wigs and yes, trying… Read more »

This is not anything new ppl who follow Venus know she has been wearing her hair natural for years under her braids or wigs.

Maybe I’m more obsessed with fitness but, forget the puff. Her arms are awesome!

I agree with Kiesh above who said she likes this better than the weave that Venus always wears. She has such beautiful hair with the prettiest curls!

Venus and Serena are GREAT role models for everyone young and old. They’ve been my fitness idols for as long as I can remember! Growing up I loved sports (still do) and they were always in my top three list of favorite athletes. My friends and I would go and play tennis on the weekends, and I would always pretend to be Serena Williams haha. I love that they are so strong and confident and they embrace every curve and muscle on their body. Team Williams!

LOL, you too? When we were about 14, me and my best friend used to play “tennis” over a half-fence/grapevine with flimsy racquets in my parents backyard. We so wanted to be them.

Find it ironic how hypocritical some in the natural hair community are. Like how we sometimes look down on ppl who choose to use weaves or wigs for protective styles. Like somehow this means they are not natural. Isn’t being natural about wearing your hair the way it makes you happy. I have seen Venus with her hair out in an Afro plenty of times. It’s just sometime she wears wigs or weaves. With her on the go life style I understand why.

I still have a Sports Illustrated for Kids growth chart with the two sisters on it where they both have braces and beads in their hair (you know that hairdo!!). I’ve always liked how they broke into a sport that was so exclusive and continue to dominate. I like the hair here, and also, she is FIT!

Her lil puff is cute. Didn’t even notice her edges.. thin edges are normal for some people you know.

Funny how this post doesn’t even have HALF the comments that Nicki post received. Thought some of you wanted pictures of stars who are good role models and such? Lol

I’m not against weaves and extensions but I think this looks better than the weaves. She looks fresher and younger. Also, I saw a picture online of her Cuban boyfriend, Elios, who is kissing her while she is wearing this Afro puff. He’s at this match, he’s a model, and he’s gorgeous!! So much for that terrible myth about Black women not being able to get a man with their hair natural.

She looks pretty. Her puff is healthy and full. I’m sure its more comfortable playing tennis without the weaves — not hating, those were cute on her, too. Venus and Serena are both very pretty young women.

On one hand i say she looks great,& her natural hair looks awesome, …but on another, Its just hair. She’s a world champion internationally recognized tennis player. Why is her hair even an issue of relevance? Even though this is a positive article I also think this is why we see asinine stories about black hair (like the flack Gabby Douglas got). ‘Natural’ hair should be considered just normal as anything else. Once so much attention isn’t caused by something as trivial as hair it will be easier for women, specifically black ones, to not be plauged by what is… Read more »

understanding anything totally, but this paragraph presents nice understanding yet.
