If there are two things Lalah Hathaway is known for, it’s these two things: her boisterous voice and her long luxurious locks. But now, the singer is switching things up, keeping her signature sound, but debuting an entirely new look: A major big chop!
In the video she posted on Instagram last week, you think she may be playing the #DontRushChallenge, but when she takes off her satin bonnet, she reveals a short crop of super moisturized finger coils.

I really love this look on her!
While most salons are closed in Los Angeles, her stylist Julius Knowles clearly ignored social distancing rules to get the Grammy-winning singer’s tresses in shape.
On IG, Knowles posted a video of Hathaway looking at herself in the mirror for the first time after the big chop. “Wow,” she mouths.
“Good Morning I love the reaction from my clients. ,” Knowles wrote on Instagram.
All smiles! Just stunning:
Now, Lalah isn’t the only Black celeb getting a big chop during the lockdown.
A few weeks ago, we noted that Riley Burruss decided to chop off her damaged ends and start over, thanks to her stylist Derek J do the shear honors. Kandi revealed her daughter’s new look in a fun TikTok video she posted on her Instagram page.
“So 2 weeks ago my baby girl @rileyburruss decided to cut all her hair off. Her hair was damaged & she wanted to cut it short & start all over. I like her Afro! Thanks for the #bigchop @derekjhair,” she captioned the video.
