Queen Latifah Hair Crush – I’m Jonesing Bad!

Queen Latifah Hair Styles - Longing 4 Length

I have a serious Queen Latifah hair crush!!!  In my opinion Queen has some of the most beautiful hair in Hollywood.  I’ve been lightweight obsessed since her days on Living Single and noticed even WAY back then that she was relaxer free, which she later confirmed in a hair magazine interview.  Although she was definitely famous before the sitcom, I wasn’t really checking for her hair too much before then..because like most of us, the 80s and early 90s got the best of her! lol

I think people sleep on how gorgeous her hair is because she sticks with her signature looks without too many changes.  But, I dare you to tell me who does honey blonde better than Queen Latifah?  Let’s be real – her hair colorist is a genius! It looks uber natural and soooo flowy.  It is as if she always has an invisible personal wind machine at her disposal!

My hair crush on Queen was recently reawakened while watching her new talk show, The Queen Latifah Show.  I swear I watch just to see her hair, clothes and makeup.  Latifah is just soooooo gorgeous!  Her looks are simple but always perfectly done and add to her overall regal appearance – we can’t forget how well Queen Latifah rocks a sleek ponytail, one of her classic looks either with or without a pompadour.

Another reason I love Queen Latifah is because her natural hair is always healthy, no matter what length she chooses to wear.  She is one of the few actresses and media moguls who has worn her REAL hair throughout her career, on and off camera, to red carpet events, and even on screen in various roles.  Wigs, weave, extensions, ponytails – she proves they are just accessories and without any of it her hair is just as beautiful.

Queen Latifah’s Real Hair

Maybe because she is from New Jersey, and we all know us Jersey girls are the flyest right? (Forget about Snooki and her shenanigans, lol!)  Or maybe it is because she stays true to herself as far as her appearance, but I just loveeeee me some Queen!

    Just when I thought that I was the only one in love with her hair color! I tried that once—and it was a MISERABLE failure!

    Wow! I never knew that it was her real hair. Always thought it was extentions. Wish she would write a book about what she is doing with her hair. Straightening and bleaching and it still si so glowing and radiant.
    She has an absolutely gorgeaus face that Always has a big smile on it. She was great in the 90′s and I loved her speach at the MJ memorial service.
