Once again we have a chick that has inspired many a trend. In 2006, Kelis Rogers-Jones let it be known that it’s okay to not always rock long, pretty hair, just as long as you do it right. Long before Rihanna came along, she had just about every female that considered themselves fashionable getting an A-symetrical bob, while some even took it as far as to get designs cut into their head like the risque’ songstress.
But it wasn’t just her haircut that caught our eye. Kelis’s swag was on 1000 before we had ever heard the phrase. From walking with a green dog to reciting lyrics as thourough as, “I’m bossy, I’m the FIRST girl to scream on the track, I switched up the beat of the drum, That’s right, I brought all the boys to the yard, and that’s right I’m the one that’s tattooed on his arm,” we had to give old girl her props. She has obviously influenced the Rihanna’s, Amber Rose’s and Solange’s, and I hope to see her help our girls into the next fashion wave.
To get the Kelis look, go to one of your local hair stylist famous for a good cut and then hit up bebe for a couple of garments to get ya Kelis on. Don’t be afraid of ruffles, huge bows, intricate detailing and short shorts. Here are a few things that could help you achieve the look.
