Her style screams confidence and personality. – BlackFashionByJavii Last year after she shaved off her hair the media berated Solange. After which she posted on twitter; “I am the number 3 trending topic before Iran and some of you can’t even locate it on a map. I just wanted to be free from the bondage that black women sometimes put on themselves with hair. These days of my life, I want to spend the time, the energy and the money on something else, not in the hair salon. ONLY reason I responded to this is because I was disappointed to see my name more talked about than the Iran Elections. We have got to do better people.” While balancing her duties as a mom to her son Juelz, this year she scored a modeling contract with Next Models and last year was a muse for the designer Suno.
