With warm weather comes break out looks of the season, and the Misses of TDE is giving us all-new everything for 2015. Speaking with Vogue on her major hair transformation, SZA gave fans a peek of her copper locks on her Instagram account Wednesday (Mar. 18), and spoke on the inspiration, the process, and plus side of her crown’s new color.
Telling the magazine about her “horrific” experience treating her hair at home, she shares a story most of us know all too well about having to seek professional help. “I called my homegirl, who called her homegirl who does Chaka Khan’s hair, and she was like ‘What have you done?’,” she tells Vogue. After a trip to her hometown in New Jersey and an experiment with “intense copper, copper blonde, dark copper blonde, with a 30 volume developer,” SZA’s tresses came out to her liking.
“There are so many ways to project beauty. I’m in a new place, and this is [an expression of that]. I feel electrified,” revealing the emphasis she once put on “being cute,” and the minimal amounts of makeup she has to put on thanks to her hair. As for her hair muses for the project? Lily Cole, Grace Coddington, Karen Elson, and Pippi Longstocking. We’re surprised the “Warm Winds” singer wasn’t aiming for Pepper Ann, who she referenced in her 2014 single.
