Beyoncé’s younger sister was spotted sporting a new hairstyle this week and the news is burning up the Internet and natural hair aficionados. Solange Knowles, who’s been revered for her curly tresses and large Afro that may or may not always be hers, attended the New York opening of the American Ballet Theatre rocking a new look. After the photos of the “curly girl” were released, however, critics and fans alike weighed in — with some even alleging that her neck length bob was a weave.
“Fake!” wrote one user on Twitter.
“Both pictures have fake hair. Yawn!” added a viewer on a gossip site.
The outspoken songstress has yet to comment on her “shocking” transformation.
In recent weeks Solange has addressed rumors that she would follow in her sister’s footsteps and release a clothing line. “Honestly, I would never do anything like that — there’s so many talented designers that have such a massive skill and have been working on it for so long,” Solange told TheCut.com. “Kenzo, J. Crew are all my peeps. To work with friends is how I’ve structured my life,” she added. “I’ve been approached a few times. It’s really a matter of the timing being right. There’s obviously a lot on my plate now, and my son is a high priority on my list.”
The songstress also recently covered Elle magazine.
