The singer usually steps out in shades of black and white, which she says is a nod to her family’s working class roots. "I think it's either you decide you're going to embrace what makes you unique and what your purpose is, or not,” she told Yahoo Beauty. “I try to keep things in perspective. I come from a working class family. My parents wore uniforms every day. My life is dedicated to being of service. A lot of it has to do with listening to those around me and allowing that to inspire me. And not doing things for selfish reasons.”Monáe’s unique hair choices make her an even bigger force to be reckoned with in the beauty game. The singer is already an ambassador for Covergirl, and is very much enjoying representing the brand, especially now that it is moving in a direction that champions inclusivity. "I'm so thankful to still be a Covergirl. They're embracing so many unique women, transgender, LGBTQ, muslims. They are redefining beauty. We all are cover girls. Even men can be cover girls. It's a state of mind," Monáe said.But though she has consistently been rolling out fierce looks and is someone who clearly enjoys experimenting with style, Monáe knows that true swag comes from within. "It's about being confident in who you are. When they saw that in me, I hope that the message was loud and clear. I didn't have to change who I was. I didn't have to strive for perfection. Perfection is often the enemy of greatness."Click through above to see some of Monáe’s latest and greatest hairstyles.Let's keep in touch!
