Kelly Rowland is transforming her fabulousness into divas who are known for their gorgeous manes. Check out the “Motivation” singer serving up a little Diana, Sade and more inside….
O, the power of the mane! Kelly Rowland just rocked a gorgeous photoshoot for MANE ADDICTS where hairstylist Kim Kimble and celebrity makeup artist Rokael Lizama used Kelly’s wiggery, weavery and everything in between to transform the star into fabulous hair and beauty icons.
Styled by Rebecca Jefferson (Lance Gross’ new wife and Kelly’s main stylist) and shot by Mike Rosenthal, Kelly let down her braid and threw on her red leather crop and a matching red lip to give us a little Sade tease.
Also in the editorial, Kelly served up Diana Ross tease with huge hair, a high waisted jean and a tight tank. Kim said about the look:
“Today we are working with the lovely Kelly Rowland- who is an amazing songstress and artist. So the inspiration for the looks are other iconic artists, like the first look we did capturing Diana Ross, who back in the 80’s had that big, curly, textured mane. There’s one album cover I had that wasn’t her typical tight curl, it was more like a loose, messy, lion’s mane type of hair so I’m using that as my inspiration.”
Kellyi went sultry as she channeled Bianca Jagger with a brushed out roller set to channel the 70’s. Makeup artist Rokael explained:
“…We went for more of a stained lip and kept the eyes very simple. I used Spice lip liner from MAC and added chapstick right over the top.”
And finally, Kelly donned curls for days as frnech 80’s/90’s supermodel Farida Khelfa Goude.
As for her hair secrets, Kelly’s #1 necessity is a silk scarf. She told Mane Addicts, “I use silk scarf! It keeps my hair smooth when I’m sleeping. I also always use a good hair mask.”
