‘Omg’: Ciara’s Showing Off of Natural Curls Prompts Praise from Fans, Groans from Haters
Written by jm on 05/24/2019
Ciara is proving to fans that she is team natural.
The singer on Wednesday uploaded a video of herself preparing to get her hair styled and showed off her curly locs on Instagram.
“Oh my gosh, guys. Can you believe it?” CiCi says in the clip as she sits in a white robe with her tresses piled on top of her head. “This is my real hair, this is what it looks like when I wash it. Funky! This is like Juicy Man’s hair.”
Juicy Man, of course, is the nickname for Ciara’s son, 5-year-old Future Zahir, whom she shares with rapper Future.
It’s not often that the singer puts her natural curls on display, and once she did fans ate it up.
“She looks good 😍”
“she needs to wear it natural more omg😍”
“Yesss embrace those curls”
However, much like the last time she showed her hair sans wigs or extensions, trolls crawled out the woodwork.
“I don’t think her hair is all that.”
“Why it look like her head was shaved on one side lol.”
“Uhhhuhh👀😒 lemme see around the back bih lol.”
Similar comments such as these emerged in April when the “Thinkin’ Bout You” singer happily showed off her hair growth to her followers.
“Something ain’t right. Lets see it down sis….”
“but it’s thin 😑”
“But let’s see it down and how thin it is!”
Regardless, Ciara has continued to embrace her natural beauty. The star’s new IG Story video noticeably features a makeup-free Ciara. Perhaps the performer’s frequent exposure of her non-glammed-up appearance is tied to the theme of her newest album, “Beauty Marks,” which was released on May 10.
As Ciara made the rounds promoting the album leading up to its release, the singer explained on “Embracing Your Beauty Marks” that becoming a single mom after her engagement to Future fizzled was “one of the most challenging times in my life.”
“That was something I didn’t expect to have in my life at that time. … That was a huge challenge for me because it was the unknown,” she said. “But it was a great challenge. I know that all of that made me better. I became stronger through that experience. It felt like it was a scar at the time, it felt like it was ugly and it wasn’t the prettiest thing when I was going through it. But when I was able to stop and think and be in a better place, I realized … that was a beauty mark.”
