Yesterday the black interwebs errupted at the sight of the purple on, Price, with a low cut afro. It seems like the legendary musician has traded in his signature straightened look for something a little more ethnic.
In an appearance on The View, Prince debuted his new look, talked about his upcoming concerts in Chicago to benefit Van Jones’ organization ‘Rebuild the Dream’, and talked about his upcoming album, which channels a ’70s vibe. Despite speaking to the ladies on various topics, it was Prince’s hair that got the most buzz.
Questlove of the Roots tweeted, “Whoa!!! is Prince rockin’ a baby fro on The View??!!” capturing what many were thinking.
While the natural hair movement has been spreading for black women, we rarely think of men “going natural” as well.
Between closely cropped haircuts, dreads, braids, and ‘fros, men have seemed to sidestep the hair debates all together. But with Prince’s latest look, we are reminded that how some men choose to wear their hair can be just as noteworthy as women.
