Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland got her hair (well, weave, but whatever) blown out, curled, braided, slicked back, straightened and bumped to achieve a few of the signature hair looks donned by pop-culture icons Diana Ross, Sade, Bianca Jagger and Farida Khelfa Goude. 

In a photo shoot with Mane Addicts, Rowland described her hair journey from the cute, short bob she donned during her early days with Destiny’s Child to the longer hair she now sports as a new mom and wife.


Rowland isn’t afraid to switch it up every now and then, and it doesn’t hurt that her timeless beauty jells well with some of these hairstyles that span generations. 

Here she’s giving us Diana Ross realness, with her full, poofy hair cascading down her back. 


Rowland resurrects the stoic, structured braid commonly worn by the the “soldier of love” herself, Sade.

Then there’s the modest but sultry hairdo that’s an ode to Bianca Jagger during her 1970s heyday. 


Rowland wore tight, coiled curls to embody supermodel Farida Khelfa Goude’s long, curly mane.


Kudos to Kelly for taking us on a wonderful trip down hair memory lane.
