For the first time Essence Mag dedicates entire issue to African American hair

In its first issue dedicated to hair, ESSENCE highlights the unique relationship between African-American women and their hair with the launch of HOT HAIR, an interactive experience covering all things hair — from root to tip — for African-American women. This special issue covers all of the beauty needs, questions, concerns and triumphs of African-American hair care and style.

“…The haircut was a part of my introduction , and it was a subliminal way for me to tell the people that I was taking the music back…” — Monica

This fly girl has not only entertained the world for more than a decade with her beautiful soulful voice; but the R&B princess is also known for her “dare to be different” hairstyles. Monica has gone from long to short hair and black to blonde hair and back. She opens up to ESSENCE about her career, motherhood and — of course — her hair.
