With all the talk about Viola Davis wearing her natural hair last week, I thought it would be nice to continue the conversation around celebs embracing their natural hair.
Curly Nikki interviewed Esperanza Spalding and she talked candidly about her hair.
When you think about Esperanza Spalding, what comes to mind first? Her music? Her performances? Or her hair?
While she’s an accomplished musician and performer, her signature afro readily comes to mind.
At the age of 20, Spalding was one of the youngest teachers at the renowned Berklee College of Music. She’s also the first jazz artist to win Best New Artist at the 2011 Grammy’s.
As much as we love her music, we’ve also fallen in love with her hair. Spalding has always worn her hair natural — “I’ve never had a relaxer, and I never will,” she exclaims. She can thank her mom for that. Her mother vowed never to put lye on her hair.
