Solange Knowles Wanted Chaka Look

Solange Knowles' new hairstyle is inspired by Chaka Khan.

The 24-year-old singer - who is well known for her quirky sense of style - recently grew her afro hairstyle after she saw the disco legend's music videos.

She said: "I watched so many Chaka Khan YouTube videos and became sort of obsessed with her. I went to my stylist and said, 'Give me the fro.'

"I wanted to get something that I could literally roll out of bed without looking nuts."

Solange, who has written a number of songs for her sister Beyonce Knowles in the past, also revealed she has started to prefer a simpler style when it comes to her nails.

She said: "I had British flag nails, ice cream cones, gold spikes... the whole nine yards. I still rock my nail art but with a little more simplicity now."

However, she admits her shoes will continue to break boundaries.

She said: "I'm all about the shoes! I order a ton of them online and play with my entire wardrobe until I find the right shoe.

"Unfortunately, so many people get it right from the head until the ankles. The shoe is very important."
