Solange’s Beaded “Dream Catcher” Hairstyle for her Saturday Night Live Performance took 40 Hours to Make!




We’re very familiar with sitting in the salon for long hours to get our hair done, braids with hair extensions could take up to 5 hours, depending on how many people are involved. But can you sit for 40 hours?

Soulful RnB singer Solange has been known for her elaborate hairstyles especially as she’s been promoting her most recent album. On Saturday night, Solange Knowles gave her first televised performance of music from her latest studio album A Seat at the Table. Appearing on Saturday Night Live, she made quite an impression on social media for the look she chose, especially her hair which people called a “dreamcatcher.”


Ok, Solange didn’t sit for 40 hours, but hairstylist Shani Crowe not only braided Solange’s hair but also braided and beaded the elaborate piece especially for the performance, which was attached to Solange’s hair at the back.

    Going out in public in your bra and pant, going out on stage in what is basically UNDERwear. Anyway, Tiwa Savage’s kind of thirst is on a different dimension as she has decided not just to learn from you people and be a Beyonce wannabe but to school you and show you that the disciple can be greater than the master, and thus, she brought a woman completely naked but for a pair of short shorts on stage throughout her performance and herself preceded by a COMPLETELY naked woman in her entourage as she made her entrance. This is apart from her own barely-there ‘clothing’ and erotic dance moves on stage with her dancers.

    This is feminism, you say. This is women’s POWER.

    It would be funny if it were not so very, very, very sad.

      “This is feminism, you say. This is women’s POWER.”

      Nice strawman you’ve got there.

      Definition of a strawman: a weak or imaginary argument by an opponent that is set up to be easily defeated, in order to undermine the opponent.

      Stop making stuff up. No one has said this is feminism, and Solange has never called herself a feminist. It is really irritating how people like you blame feminism for everything.
