Solange Knowles Joins the Big Chop Club

Yes ladies - Solange Knowles has shaved it all off and gone natural!

The 23-year-old younger sibling of R'n'B superstar Beyonce is going on 2 weeks with this natural do. The paps photographed her edgy look while she was on her way to take son Juelz, 4, to school.

Solange twitted that she was going through a 'I wanna cut all my Hair off & have a fade (cropped haircut) phase'.She has in the past typically worn hair extensions or the lace-front wigs - where the wig is glued on - also worn by her sister.

In the past she has joked that the constant comparisons to Beyonce might tip her over the edge and send her into a Britney-style meltdown. Regardless of her reasoning she chopped it all off.

I love that Solange isn't afraid to rebel. My only concern is that she should have gotten a shape up. Doesn't she look cute in this pic?

And yes, her Big Chop is recent and it isn't her 1st or 2nd according to her via twitter:

  5. I think she looks beautiful, I had to do a double take when I heard that she went natural. Im not sure if it was more her being tired of being compared to her sister, or her just finally wanting to free herself from creamy crack, either way im happy for her and she has taken a big step. Hollywood may not understand or appreciate her "new look" but I sure do :) Welcome to the Natural Queendom Solange

  6. I've checked out another picture with her hair chopped and it really flattered her face. She looked so soft and natural. If I had to choose between hers sisters weave and her chopped would be the chopped hair...YOU GO SOLANGE
