Roots & Rhythm: Erykah Badu - On & On

We made it.  It is officially summer.  Take it all in.  Because in a few weeks, or days, the heat will start to close in on us and we'll look for relief anywhere we can find it.

This summer the turban has returned and I'm thinking about giving the trend a try.  I think it could be a very regal look for me.  Why the hesitation?  Flashback to 1997.



When I first heard "On & On" by Erykah Badu I was an instant fan.  When I saw her hair beautifully wrapped in vibrant colored material, I had to give it a try.  Instead of looking like royalty, I just looked ready for bed.




We've seen Erykah wrap her hair in so many different colors and textures over the years, that it is easy to make a convenient style fashionable as well.


How ironic is it that she created one of the most significant moments in hair trends by covering her hair?  



"Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned." -Erykah Badu
