Erykah Badu: Scary Hair

erykah_scarestyles_1.gif   erykah_scarestyles_2.gif

Stumped about what to wear this Halloween? Well, have no fear because we might just have a solution for you. Why not go as Erykah Badu*? Because as of late our girl has been looking mighty frightful, especially from the scalp up. Erykah has always been left of center in her dress, but recently she's been rocking some hairstyles that have us alternately shaking or scratching our heads.

Early in her career Erykah was known for her signature mile-high headwraps, then she downsized to a baldie and could be seen in braids and dreadlocks in subsequent years. However, she's also been caught in some outlandish wigs that have caused folks to question her hair sanity. Badu's misshapen afros, ratty mohawks, and throwback looks that have her looking like a space-age Pocahontas, one of the lost Beatles or Cousin It's cousin are not a good look. Thank goodness Erykah is not her hair. But although Ms. Badu's scary hair may not work for her, it may lend itself to the bomb costume on October 31st.

*If anyone does dress up as Erykah Badu for Halloween PLEASE send us a photo.

  8. Variety is the spice of life!

  9. badu is simply magnificent!!!!! Just leave it at that, no comparison to her greatness

  10. Erykah Badu is an artist. She is also human being. With that being said, we need to stop judging folks based upon what we think is acceptable in this world. She is doing herself and that is what counts. If she as well as other artist listened to the negative remarks, they would not be where they are today.

  11. that was really stupid. She looks great bald, and she'll look phenomenal with a mop on her head. Just stop being bitter.

  12. hater. she's amazing and so is her hair. your just really narrow-minded. she does her, not what everyone else thinks is 'good' or 'hot'. just pure badu. and anyone who can't respect and love that is just weak.

  13. I love you all for saying such beautiful things in the name of this woman. I was afraid for a minute that most people thought that ms. Badu was less than fly - but im glad to see that i was proven wrong - God bless yall who can see and respect beauty

  14. she is always beautyiful. i wish more people would rock their real self instead of letting the caucasion persuasion take over.

  15. what's up? i'm a true ebadu fan and people who FIND things to say about whatever she does must not understand what being yourself, being a leader and not caring what others think of you means. When ur making money, wearing costumes MIGHT be part of the plan to keep it comin! Thanks for the great pics though.
