Did You See Lizzo’s Iconic Butterfly Afro?

Her music video with Cardi B is definitely Lizzo’s big beauty moment. With the skinny golden brows, angular eye makeup, and mindblowing nail art, she definitely rocks the Rumors video. However, did you know that even before she released that clip she had her majestic moment in the first week of August? She just shared her look from the special event on her Instagram – and fans are going crazy.

What Was so Special About the Look?

Lizzo took to Instagram to share a very cute GIf of herself – and everything about it is drool-worthy. In the gif, she first looks off the camera and then faces the camera to give a heartfelt laugh. While her glowing skin can arouse envy in any person – what catches the attention is her mindblowing Afro. The look is a sweet reminder of the 70s Afros – however, Lizzos afro was shorter in length. But the volume and softness of the hair made up the look iconic. She donned four real-looking butterfly clips – which made up a tiara-like crown. It was clearly one of the most iconic natural hair looks spotted by her. She had worn that look for Dove’s “My Hair, My Crown” event.

Lizzo Wasn’t Always Comfortable With Her Natural Hair

Growing up Lizzo always believed that certain hair textures are beautiful than others – and was always insecure about her natural hair. She shared how she felt the need to hide that part of herself. It took her a long time to accept her natural hair, but now she feels beautiful and flaunts it proudly. In her interview with Allure she confessed how she used to lock her hair away – but recently found the confidence to flaunt it. She said “You can’t thrive when you’re locked up like that. So now I’ll be like, let me take this style out and let me take this wig off and let her breathe. Let her expand.” She also added that while she will always have fun experimenting with different styles of hair – she no longer feels the need to hide her natural texture.
