Singer/songwriter VV Brown, who turns heads with her modern-glam look and music, dished with SBH about her unique sound and hip hairstyle…

UK-born musician VV Brown knows how to make a statement with her fabulous mixed hair texture and fashion-forward funkiness! “I was looking at 1970’s fashion icons and I love Bianca Jagger. She’s beautiful…I’m getting into a more Bohemian style like the shaggy chic look and bangs,” VV details of her retro-inspired ‘do. “It’s contemporary with an edge.”

Currently, the “Shark in the Water” songstress is rocking extensions for extra thickness. “Without extensions, my hair is quite thin. My hairstylist, Vernon Francois, does a can roll and sews them in and he uses Russian hair, which is very expensive,” the recording artist reveals. “If you get the cheaper ones, they get really knotty. If you get the real good hair, it feels sort of natural and it moves a lot better.”

While VV is partial to her bangs now, that wasn’t always the case: “I was so nervous when Vernon was cutting my hair because I’d never had bangs before and I’ve got quite a round face,” she says. “Actually someone had tried to cut them for me once and it was just bad, so I was really scared. When you have a bad hairstyle, it just ruins your whole life.”
