I gotta admit — I’ve been kind of ambivalent about Ciara’s new direction. I dug her style when she was singing about keeping her Goodies in the jar, but now she’s adopted a hypersexed alternative persona and some of her latest moves have left this bella a bit cold.
So when I saw these pretty photos of Ciara over on Concrete Loop, I was pleasantly surprised. I love it! The commenters on Concrete Loop don’t seem to agree… but I wasn’t the only one digging her hairstyle. Lady Kinnks caught Ciara’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel and is feeling it too!
First Tyra on her Good Hair episode, now Ciara. Are cornrows coming back for the summer? I sure hope so. Please note — both Tyra and Ciara worked the look with strong, smoky eye makeup and a nude lip. Love it! I hope Ciara continues to bring cornrows back — she looks classy, elegant, and it’s refreshing to see! I love the hair. I think Ciara’s a beautiful woman and a talented entertainer, so I’m hoping the whole Super C thing is just a phase. But I’m also hoping the hair isn’t. (edited at 2 am – just found out via Twitter, Ciara’s hair was done by Crystal Oliver, hairstylist to the stars.
What do you think, bellas? Are you a Ciara fan? What do you think about the hair?
