Tinashe: ‘Weird hair colours frighten me’
Singer and actress Tinashe is “very afraid” of strange hair colours.
The 24-year-old has dyed her hair plenty of times, but it’s highly unlikely she will ever take a risk by transforming her locks into an unnatural hue like neon blue or green.
“I’m very afraid of abnormal hair colours, but I would change it a lot within the spectrum of colours people are born with,” she explains to Us Weekly.
Although the All Hands on Deck hitmaker is wary of going too bold with colour, she has no fear or qualms about playing with length or style, having sported a range of haircuts from bobs to long hair extensions in the past.
“I like to switch up my hair like I do with my style,” she shares. “It’s part of the perks of being a woman and being able to switch up how you dress to how you feel and express yourself day-to-day. I think hair is an extension of that.
“Sometimes I want to be more conservative and other times I want to be more fun, sexy or playful.”
However, when it comes to her makeup, Tinashe prefers to keep it simple.
“I think when I have on light makeup and just a little bit of blush and lip balm on with my brows filled in, I feel my most confident,” she notes. “I like real, natural beauty and hair that’s been shaken out with a ‘I just woke up like this!’ type of vibe.”
Tinashe has valued natural beauty since she was a little girl with beautiful frizzy curls.
“When I was a kid my hair was so frizzy at all times,” she recalls. “I didn’t really care at the time, so shoutout to myself for having the self confidence to rock that frizz!”
She has since relied on haircare brand John Freida’s products to keep unruly follicles in place when she wants to slick her hair down.
“I’ve gravitated towards John Freida’s Frizz Ease products for a long time because they’re great for smoothing out the texture of my hair and helping it out when I do heat styling,” she adds.
