And just like that, it’s the end of an era! With the whole world, we at the Black Hair Hub mourn the passing away of our queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, an iconic personality. Our respect and gratitude for what she shared with us all in spirit and talent will stay unshaken. Nothing will stop us from celebrating her excellence and her beauty! Let’s reminisce some of her most memorable appearances and glorious hairstyles sported by this legend.
That fringe tho stealing hearts even then! The young Miss Franklin flaunts a beautiful sleek wig with bangs that really complements her soothing face. Heaven was definitely missing an angel! Today, we sure can try this look on a date night but doubt we’d do it as much justice as her.
This accentuated short bob with out-curls at the end is such a vintage look. Rarely do we get to see such iconic hairstyles and now that we have, we’re definitely keen on giving this look a go! And while the fringes seem to be a statement style with this beautiful soul, only she makes them look so suave!
Whilst giving us a glimpse of her natural short fro from time to time, Aretha loved her elaborate wigs and weaves. We can’t stop gushing over this voluminous kinky fro. So true to her personality – Majestic and larger than life!
A trend even back then and look who started it! This top knot is taking things look and our verdict is super chic! Different, yet seen so often, her hair is tied up, but unlike the usual, where you put your hair behind your ears, Miss Franklin has chosen to take it over, just to give it a twist. These kind of hairstyles seem to have made a total comeback. The glossed finish here has really caught our eye. Maybe a good prep with Dr. Miracle’s Anti-Breakage Strengthening Crèmewill do the trick whilst giving the hair a nourishing boost, taming fly-aways and letting breakage take a back seat! Watch out for those stares!
