Mane Character: Faith Evans

Faith Evans has always been a trendsetter when it comes to good R&B music and bold hairstyles. With her new album, “Something About Faith” dropping soon, the star has resorted back to a strawberry blond shade. But through the years she’s definitely kept us talking – and guessing – about her bold mane choices.

Way before Beyonce hit the scene, Ms. Evans was giving gold hues in her hair. Never one to shy away from blond – all shades of them – Faith was one the first singer to turn it all the way up and go lighter. With a great cut, full of layers and a fabulous blunt bang, she made us think we could all go blond.

Even though she never shied away from vibrant colors and daring cuts, Faith proved to us time and time again that she could also keep it classic and simple. Here, she wears her hair pulled back in her more natural darker color. Like many songbirds after her – Christina Milian, Ciara and Cassie – she made it known that dark hair can still make a statement.

I know we’re all acting as though Rihanna’s red locks are groundbreaking, but let’s give credit where it’s due. Faith was the first chick in the 90’s on the scene to boldly and unapologetically rock that Crayola red hue. She recently brought back the look, only to prove that she’s still got it.

The singer’s current and regular style is in a gorgeous strawberry blond tone. At medium length, her locks are versatile – she rocks curls, wear it bone straight or even add some bangs. It’s not a typical hair color, but then again she’s not your typical singer. After a five year hiatus, the R&B veteran hits the stage with a very Keyshia Cole type of hair color, only except it’s very Faith Evans. Because if you recall in ’98, she rocked it first.
