Earlier this year, Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Eve released her first full-length album in 11 years. For the album—titled Lip Lock—the rapper/songwriter/actress and her stylist, Vernon Francois, created a new look: a sleek, chic bob. SBH sat down with Eve to talk about the sexy silhouette. See what the superstar had to say.

On the hairstyle created for her album…

“There was a conversation between me and the guy who did my hair, Vernon Francois, and he said, ‘I just want to give you something really strong, yet still very sexy and also fashionable and chic.’ We then decided on doing a classic, really tight bob. And I think the style did exactly what it was supposed to do—because I didn’t want the hair to be big. I think he did a great job.”

On how the look was created…

“It’s a wig. You could do it with extensions but we wanted it to be perfect. I think the wig allowed my stylist to get up in there and cut it in the way that he wanted it cut and make it one length and very perfect.”
