Solange Knowles Wanted Chaka Look
Solange Knowles admits her big afro hair has been inspired by disco singer Chaka Khan.
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."
