An hour or two ago, Janelle Monae posted a makeup and weave(affiliate link) free selfie on her Instagram page and it was picked up by every major news feed on the gram.
We get it though, for one it isn’t every day we get to see Janelle without her usual signature red lip and glam. And two, she looks absolutely gorgeous and relaxed at the same time which again most of her fans hardly ever get to see.
I have to be honest her picture actually reminded me of the makeup-free “pledge” that some of our celebs have been talking about for Summer ’16. First it was Alicia Keys who attended her first award show after pledging to go makeup free. Then Sanaa Lathan also showed off her natural hair in protest earlier this month vowing to keep things simple this year.
While we do not think this is what Janelle was doing her audience is straight up loving her fresh face and hair check out the view:
becky with the good hair????????????????????
Chilling with no makeup on, that’s when you’re the prettiest…
Still beautiful with or without all the glam..
Such beautiful spirit! Yes! Rock that natural ????
Of course some of her followers could not help but tell her that she needed to get her ends trimmed, which is probably unnecessary. I am sure Janelle has a dope hair stylist on her team which means ends and edges are the least of her worries.
you are a beautiful being, Janelle, but you need your ends trimmed. 🙂
Beautiful but you do need your ends trimmed
Despite what the opinions are it is great to see Janelle in chill mode and it is obvious that protective styling has been doing wonders for her own hair which means that she has been doing it in a healthy way.
