Lalah Hathaway

With five Grammy Awards and seven hit albums Lalah Hathaway is a true icon in the music industry. The only thing we adore as much as the “I Can’t Wait” singer’s impressive vocals is her trendy mane. In an exclusive interview SBH chatted with the songstress about her stunning hairstyle moves. Check it out!

“I’m not a hairstylist. I stay in my lane, I do music and I really love to pamper myself and go to the salon.”

Lalah Hathaway’s locs have been her go-to style for years. “I’ve had locs since 1998, I love them and I decided I had been through every single hairstyle in the entire world and I wanted to loc. I wanted see what I would look like with locs. I started with very little baby ones and it has been my favorite hair choice thus far.

What inspired the star’s bold, purple tresses? “I have a friend and she colors my locs. She does the most amazing color [work]. We were trying to figure out something that would be really interesting because I was at a period where I was like, ‘Okay I need to do something with my locs or else I’m going to get really bored’—which I tend to get,” recalls the singer. “And we decided purple, let’s just do purple, let’s see how far we can take it with the purple. And it just turned out to be something that I love and kept.”
