Full disclosure: We absolutely adore Solange Knowles’ new haircut. Yeah, we hear the snickers about it being an obvious ploy for attention. (And regarding its success, some of you may def beg to differ). Well, we think it works! With one cut, she’s accomplished what her normally over-the-top styling never seemed to do: make her look chic, edgy and radiant. We’ve also noticed that Rihanna, Cassie and even Ciara are all leaders of this new school of short, chic, and recession friendly ‘dos. Because if you think about it, rocking pounds of weave is not only high-maintenance, but expensive. Don’t you wish other stars like Beyonce, Tyra Banks and Britney Spears would take a cue and ditch their hair extensions? Actually, we take that last one back. We all remember Britney’s epic attempt, which resulted in an epic FAIL. Still. Have you done any chopping lately in order to save time and money?
