Hair color is all the rage this summer. Here at 4cHairCHick, we go absolutely gaga over fun vibrant hues! With temperatures over 80 and the sun shining bright well into the night, I can’t help but want to celebrate summer with a fresh new wardrobe, open toed shoes, and some poppin hair color. As I try to decide whether or not to take the plunge, I turn to my celebrity curlfriends to guide the way. Here are some of my favorite natural hair celebrities with some awesome color.
1. Leela James
Not only is Leela James an incredible artist, but would you look at that hair! I love how her golden locks complement her beautiful golden brown skin. She is a prime example that us brown girls can rock blonde.
2. Erykah Badu
What more can be said about Mama Badu? She is a fashion pioneer and is not afraid to express her creativity even when it comes to her hair. She has changed up her hair color, cuts, and styles more times than I can count. With each new look I get more and more inspired. This has to be one of my favorites! The blonde mixed with the pompadour, hat, and dress gives me life!
3. Chrisette Michele
Chrisette gives us all levels of TWA fierceness! This ombre blonde/ variations blonde look she is working is nothing short of GORGEOUS. I love that the tapered sides are more of a warm honey blonde while the real pop can be found on the cute tendrils up top.
4. Marsha Ambrosius
I find this look to be a great fit for those nervous to experiment with color. With the subtle pops of red, it helps to add dimension and pizzazz without full commitment.
I love, love, LOVE this look. It’s striking, powerful, yet incredibly feminine. This type of color is definitely not for the faint of heart. If you are looking to take a dive into the color wild side, this is the perfect way to take the summer by storm.
6. Tanika Ray
The blonde highlights are an easy way to add natural looking color to an already light doo. It gives her hair that wonderful summer sun kissed look that is perfect for any beach, pool, or vacation adventure.
