Celebrity Hair Crush: Ashanti

Ever since Ashanti first burst onto the music scene singing the hook Ja Rule’s hit “Always on Time” with long softly curly tresses – the perfect 1b/27 mix, I’ve been in love with her hair.  Ashanti is super trendy – always rocking the latest and hottest looks and at times setting the trends.  She is fearless with her looks, one day wearing way-down-to-there extensions, red, blonde or black tresses, updos, ponytails, a variety of textures – I don’t think there is much that Ashanti hasn’t tried with her hair.  And, I’ve never seen her with a bad wig or weave…a very difficult feat for celebrities to accomplish these days.  Even Queen Bey has been caught out there with visible lace on her forehead!  Let’s take a look at the many different hairstyles of Ashanti so you can further understand why I’m crushing on her hair:

Now tell me with variety like that, who’s not crushing on Ashanti’s hair with me?!

Ashanti has an album coming out soon, I believe and I absolutely loved the first single – “The Woman You Love.”

  1. I love Ashanti’s hair as well. She’s always on point! And I think I may just steal that hairstyle with the braids on the side and maybe do a flexirod set on the other side…thanks Ashanti lol. Her and Nelly are so cute together btw.
