Adwoa Aboah – who is a Global Brand Ambassador for Revlon alongside Ashley Graham and Imaan Hammam – has revealed that her trademark shaved hair happened because she never “had a proper loving relationship” with her tresses.
Speaking to ELLE UK magazine, Adwoa said: “It all started when I had a really bad haircut! I’d just moved to LA and went to a new hairdressers and ended up with this weird Vidal Sassoon-style sculptural cut that was a nightmare to look after.
“I’ve never had a proper loving relationship with my hair anyway so the idea of doing anything with it at all just became really exhausting – it felt natural to just shave it all off.
“Dree Hemingway just shaved her hair and she looks epic, and Dilone has gone really short which I love. Rihanna would look sick with a shaved head.
“But, there’s some girls with amazing hair that should never shave it off. When I see their hair, that’s when I get a bit envious. Solange has the best hair in the whole entire world so she should just keep it forever!”
Adwoa explained: “Growing up was a confusing time for me, luckily I had amazing strong and powerful women around me in my family and friends, so they were the ones I looked up to.
“I had a lot of insecurities, but my freckles were never one of them because my mum and my uncle have them as well, so I always loved them.
“I look through magazines now and I see loads of different women that I can relate to and who are admired for being different, which I think is so amazing.”
