Beyoncé Shares Why She Cut off Her Hair After Becoming A Mom

Beyoncé: Why She Cut off Her Hair After Becoming a Mom | Fab.ng

Music legend Beyoncé, whose influence extends far beyond the stage with initiatives like BeyGOOD and fashion line IVY PARK, is venturing into the world of hair care. Her brand new line, Cécred (a clever combination of her name), launched on February 20th. This exciting addition to her empire comes with a rare interview in Essence Magazine, where the “Renaissance” star shares a glimpse into her personal journey with hair, particularly after motherhood.

In a recent interview, Queen Bey shed light on the powerful emotions behind her dramatic hair transformation in 2013. The iconic singer, known for her cascading tresses, surprised fans by chopping off her hair into a daring pixie cut. This wasn’t just a style change—it was a symbolic shedding of expectations and societal pressures.

According to Beyoncé,

“I remember the day I decided to just cut all my hair off, I didn’t have a particular style in mind. It wasn’t an aesthetic choice, but it was a very big emotional transformation and metamorphosis that I was going through. So much of my identity as a performer has been connected to flowing hair. Cutting my hair off was me rebelling against being this woman that society thinks I’m supposed to be.”

Newly a mother, the singer remembered feeling a powerful urge to break free from societal expectations. She felt motherhood had granted her the freedom to shed those burdens. Beyoncé recalled her friend and hairstylist, Neal Farinah, feeling surprised at her decision, especially since she had long, thick, and healthy hair.

” It was a physical representation of me shedding the expectations put upon me,” she said.

“I just got the scissors and chopped it off. It was very intentional. And it was what I needed to do.”

For Beyoncé, this bold step sparked a newfound bravery and led her to make many other daring decisions in her life and career. This decision has shaped her into the person she is today.

The celebrity revealed glimpses of her childhood spent observing her mother, Tina Knowles, weave magic with hair in her salon. This experience, she shared, instilled in her a deep appreciation for haircare, a tradition proudly carried forward within their family.

“I saw her shampooing and trimming hair, transforming women, leaving them feeling really good,” Beyoncé recalled.

Asake Says He Genuinely Loves Seyi Vibez's Hit Song | Fab.ng

Asake, the Nigerian music sensation who skyrocketed to fame in 2022 with his hit “Omo Ope,” surprised fans recently by publicly expressing his admiration for another rising star, Seyi Vibez. In a heartfelt message on his Instagram story, Asake declared his genuine love for Seyi Vibez’s hit song “Different Pattern,” dispelling any rumours of animosity between the two artists.

Both Asake and Seyi Vibez have taken the mainstream by storm with their unique styles of Afrobeats, Fuji, and hip-hop, often characterised as exciting “neo-fuji” music. Asake’s musical journey began in January 2022, captivating audiences with his tunes that incorporated traditional Yoruba music, while Seyi Vibez made waves later that year with his hit “Chance,” which bore some musical similarities to Asake’s “Organise.

Despite their shared influences and similarities, particularly their use of elements from Fuji and Apala (another Yoruba music genre), the artists delve into different subgenres. Asake’s music often features the distinct sounds of Fuji music, while Seyi Vibez leans towards the rhythmic style of Apala. However, both artists share a common thread in their exploration of hip-hop and the incorporation of religious influences, leading to comparisons from fans.

However, any worries about a potential rivalry were put to rest with Asake’s public appreciation for “Different Pattern.” This gesture not only reaffirms the positive relationship between the two artists but also opens up exciting possibilities for future collaborations, much to the delight of fans who admire their distinct talents.

In short, Asake’s unexpected appreciation for Seyi Vibez’s music not only clears the air on any potential rivalry but also paves the way for exciting possibilities in the Nigerian music scene. The future looks bright for these two talented artists, both individually and potentially together.
