We’ve enjoyed wtaching Brandy rock various natural styles, but who knew her love of locs was this deep! In an interview with Essence.com, the 36-year-old beauty spoke excitedly about the natural hair movement and her desire to loc;
ESSENCE.com: I’ve noticed that you’ve worn afros and different big or curly styles.
Brandy: That’s one of my favorite styles, is the big curly hair and the braids. I love braids, and twists, and I love the natural expression, that’s my thing. If it were left up to me, I would actually loc my hair, but I’m an actress too, so I have to be versatile. If it were left up to me, I would do the locs.
ESSENCE.com: Really, why is that?
Brandy: Because I think it’s so beautiful. It’s just a part of who I am. I’ve been wearing braids for years now. That’s what I first came on the scene, with braids. I just feel pretty in braids, and pretty in the natural stuff, it just makes me feel more like myself. I love it on other people. I love seeing it on other people. They look so beautiful to me when I see it on other people.
ESSENCE.com: Do you think braids and locs bring out your beauty in ways that an afro can’t?
Brandy: Yes, I do. It feels more natural, it feels more like me. The whole natural movement, it’s just different. It just feels like inner beauty is coming to the surface and it just comes out through your eyes, and face, and hair. That’s what it feels like.
The singer and actress also spoke about her love of black hair color;
ESSENCE.com: You said that you like wearing black. Why is that?
Brandy: I think my mom put it in my head [long ago] that black hair really brings out my features. Like my cheekbones and my Asian eyes features. She put that in my head, so I stuck with that.
ESSENCE.com: So no red or blue, or blonde, huh?
Brandy: No, no, no! I’m not doing red and blue.
