Laura Mvula must have read our post on 100 days of snow, as she has magically grown some brand new hair for the winter months.
The 27-year-old singer uploaded some photos to her Instagram account showing off a new do. And looked like a completely different person with the curly wig.
Laura was one of the many black women who shaved off their hair when it became a big fashion statement a few years ago.
In a recent interview with the Guardian the Brummie singer revealed that she has had a difficult journey with her hair, after getting it chemically treated by a hairdresser in New York.
She put on the relaxer and was halfway through my hair before I stopped her. I knew it shouldn’t hurt this much – my scalp was on fire. By the time she’d finished the whole head my scalp was severely damaged and the chemicals had burned pot-holes in my head. I lost a lot of hair and it was a very steep, painful learning curve.
Laura started wearing wigs after her painful ordeal and tried the Rihanna half-weave/half-shave look for a while. But it was her cousin who made her take the big step and go bald.
I bumped into my cousin after she’d shaved her hair very short and she looked incredible. She seemed so effortless and cool and I wanted that. And, I’ve had it like that ever since.
Well not any more! We’re not sure which look we prefer though, what do you think?
