Have you ever listened to Elle Varner’s station on Pandora? It is one of my absolute favorites, and I really can’t wait to hear some new music from my girl, I love her voice and her spirit.
So as usual, being the instagram stalker that I am I noticed that the Perfectly Imperfect singer had been posting some pictures of herself rocking straight blonde vintage hair, dark roots and a classic red lip.
The usually curly songstress did not have any captions explaining why she had decided on the drastic change; she just did a few poses, attended a couple parties (including the SWV Reunited premiere party in New York) and let the look ride. Hey! I’m not mad, get it girl, have a fun!
She recently hosted a women’s empowerment dinner party attended by Roc Nation singer Bridget Kelly, Project Runway designer Samantha Black and singer-singwriter Sonyae Elise. Perhaps the change in hair color is a continuation of the empowerment theme?
Before posting the pictures of herself having fun while blonde, she posted something Gabourey Sidibe said earlier that week, she said:
People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you, what matters is what you see.
I thought that was the perfect introduction to her new look because she obviously felt pretty, and was clearly confident and happy with the results.
There was mixed reaction on her new look. Some criticism was that she was only going blonde because other artists were on the same trend (Beyonce) but mostly the reception was positive. Check out the view…
