Solange Knowles loses locks
Beyonce Knowles' sister Solange, 23, has ditched her flowing brown locks for a closely cropped hairstyle
Solange Knowles has shaved her head.
The 23-year-old sister of Beyonce Knowles has ditched her flowing brown locks in favour of a closely cropped hairstyle, and has even taken to her blog to discuss her new look.
She wrote on her Twitter page: "'i wanna cut all my Hair off + have a fade [cropped haircut] phase (sic)"
Solange was spotted sporting the new style in Los Angeles on Wednesday (22.07.09), but seemed too nervous to debut it in the evening.
When she walked the red carpet at a Dita Von Teese burlesque show, she had covered her shaven head with a long wig.
Solange thoroughly enjoyed the evening, updating her blog regularly throughout.
One post read: "Salute to the vagina power! Dita Von Teese is haute! (sic)"
Solange has previously revealed she finds it hard having such a famous older sister, adding she sometimes lies about the family connection when asked.
Referring to Britney Spears' infamous 2008 breakdown, which saw her shave her head and attack a car with an umbrella, Solange said: "I get asked about Beyonce all the time but I try and make fun of it.
"I have to have fun with it or I'll turn into Britney - shave my head and go totally crazy."
