BN Beauty: Yay or Nay? Janelle Monae’s Jumbo Pig Tails at Paris Fashion Week 2015



Janelle Monae Natural Hair - Bellanaija - September0010

Paris Fashion Week is still in full swing, and it has proven to be the place for celebs, international fashion lovers and designers to show the world their signature style.

One celeb in particular that caught our attention is the monochrome-loving alternative R&B singer, Janelle Monae. The “Yoga” singer has been attending fashion shows, most recently the Chanel showcase, and has been debuting her eclectic fashion sense and funky natural hairstyles.

On Monday 5th October, she attended the Stella McCartney showcase for Spring/Summer 2016 in an oversize sweater with fur detailing and a monochrome skirt, a colour blocked tote and platform shoes. We loved her outfit, but couldn’t get over her hair.

She converted her natural mane into 2 jumbo pig tails that also formed a crown on her head. We love how the pig tails almost blend in with her sweater, and it definitely gave her something to play with.

A lot of people like pig tails because of it’s ease and minimal maintenance requirements, but there are those who think the look is too childish to be pulled off by an adult. So we have to ask – would you give this look a yay or nay?

    Janelle Monae is a pretty girl with great bone structure so she can pull off almost any hairstyle. The skirt and tote are so cute.

    Yay!!!!!! She can’t do no wrong in my eyes… That’s one risk taker when it comes to fashion & she pulls it off greatly.
