Janelle Monae defies convention. Her funky vibe and outgoing personality perfectly compliment her soulful voice. Her style is unique, from her monochromatic menswear, to her creative up-do that is catered to her individuality.
Below is a tutorial I found on youtube on how to easily achieve this particular style (keep in mind that it will be easiest on hair of a similar texture). Lately I have noticed a marcel wave incorporated in her pompodour which will add a nice effect and a little something extra. Enjoy!
