Alicia Keys has always been in the news for a good course and we like to think her brand new hair is one of them. Taking to her Instagram, the music superstar proved we need more color this season, showing off the brightest hairstyle we’ve ever seen. The braids, a combination of black, orange and pink hue is rather eye-catching and has electrifying effects. If your day is sort of moody, this is the type of hair you need to spark things up.
Apart from the truckload of her Grammy awards, Alicia Keys really got our attention when she denounced the usage of makeup far back in 2016. Since then, Keys has been appearing on shows and performing completely bare-faced, and the biggest part that had tongues wagging was when the 15-times Grammy award winner arrived at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards with no single drop of makeup.
According to her, “Women are brainwashed into feeling like we have to be skinny, or sexy, or desirable, or perfect,” Keys wrote on Lenny Letter. “One of the many things I was tired of was the constant judgment of women. The constant stereotyping through every medium that makes us feel like being a normal size is not normal, and heaven forbid if you’re plus-size. Or the constant message that being sexy means being naked.”
“Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me.”
Keys decided to ditch makeup completely after saying, “I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”
