Janet Jackson is not merely my idol, she's also a trendsetter when it comes to hair. From soft shoulder-length curls to a short red curly 'fro to dookie braids to long straight tresses, Janet Jackson has rocked it all. And everything always looks great on her.
Her latest style, however, may be the most shocking! She has cut all her hair off in a new, funky boy-short style a la Solange Knowles. She debuted it today in London via The YBF.
I have to see a better picture to give a full review but it does look like her hair is thinning out on the sides (ladies, weave can do that to you if tracks are pulling on your edges). In fact, Ferocia thinks Janet already had short hair and just got tired of the weave and took it out. Hilarious!
Here's a pic I snapped of Janet rocking a glorious weave in March at the Why Did I Get Married Too? premiere.
And as recently as early May, Janet rocked a Hightower Hair look to the MET Gala.
My take? Maybe she wanted a new look for her birthday that just passed (it was May 16th, two days before mine...okay, that was a "Stan" moment.) Whatever the reason, at the end of the day, she is a beautiful lady so if anyone can pull the boy short look off, it's Janet Jackson.
What do you think of her new cut? Is it flattering on her, or a hot mess? Glam or Sham?
