In honour of Oprah’s insurmountable Afro on the latest issue of O Magazine, we took a look at the best of celebrity big hair magazine moments.
Rihanna – Rolling Stone
Rihanna is a virtual hair chameleon, reinventing her style almost as quickly as she pumps out albums. This memorable Rolling Stone cover features RiRi adorned with a head full of curly red locks and shorts of questionable fabric integrity.
Solange – Complex Magazine
Beyonce’s baby sis in the shadows no more. This Complex cover solidifies Solange’s place as a rising star and a big-haired beauty. Solange shows off her natural hair with a vintage inspired look complete with a bold red lip.
Jessica Simpson – New York Magazine
Embracing her inner pageant queen, Jessica’s teased and highly hair-sprayed look brings back ’50s-inspired glamour and playfulness. Considering Jessica’s deep southern roots, it’s no surprise that she seems at home in this look.
Lana Del Ray – Interview Magazine
Lana’s hair is always defiantly tall and statuesque, reflecting the stylish singer’s persona perfectly. This cover plays up signature Lana — dark Twiggy-inspired eyeliner, hair teased to the heavens and a prominent pout.
Lady Gaga – Vogue
Lady Gaga is all about the drama — beauty wise. Gaga’s ice blonde Afro gives Oprah’s look a serious run for its money, especially when offset by her haute couture gown and striking gaze. We’d expect nothing less from the most prominent fashion publication in the world and the pop world’s biggest boundary pusher.
Beyonce – Harper’s Bazaar
Beyonce brought her big hair and baby belly to the cover of Harper’s Bazaar November 2011 issue. Beyonce is a powerhouse with a larger-than-life stage presence, so it’s no surprise that her hair would follow suit.
