Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton is the latest celebrity to free her mind and join the natural hair club. The 40-year-old singer revealed her newly shorn haircut on Instagram.com late Wednesday.

Tamar initially posted a video of a female barber cutting her tresses with clippers while Bobby Brown's '80s hit song "My Prerogative" blared in the background.

Later, Tamar posted a filtered image of her closely shaved head. She captioned the image:

"Im over feeling captive to a wig, weave, people, people’s comments & opinions hell... even my OWN feelings! WE can choose to stop these things from having the power and victory over us!! And for me, that starts TODAY".

Tamar's followers, many of whom still wear wigs and hair weave themselves, praised Tamar for having the courage to make a bold statement against wearing hair weaves and hair extensions.

Several of the reality TV star's followers vowed to follow in her footsteps and cast aside their own wigs and weaves.

Good job, Tamar!

  • You Could Never

    She is freaking beautiful. No more plastic surgery Tay. You are at your best right now sis. Go GIRL!

  • Panther Charleston

    No shade. Just a question: Sure you feeling bold and free? That's a lot of unnecessary filters.

  • Coco

    Why is she now hiding behind filters?

    At least now she’s giving her edges a fair chance to grow with the rest of her hair.

  • Ni Ni

    She looks really pretty . I did the big chop again but unfortunately i discovered that my head aint made right to wear it bald or near bald?. I'm wearing natural looking wigs for the next couple months till my hair completely fills in.

  • Berry Melon
  • Yardgirl

    That's the way to do the big chop, just do it!! She looks beautiful!! I had forgotten what my natural hair looked like after so many years of relaxers and it was liberating. If I want the straight look I can blow dry and use a straightening brush or wear a human hair short wig (I cant do synthetic) No more creamy crack for this girl *shudder*

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning, Open Post!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    She looks beautiful. It's sad that we feel captive. Wigs and weaves sometimes make people look tacky. Them things be hideous and God intended for us to embrace our real hair.

    You ppl already started some say he was being reprogrammed or a clone

  • Just here4 the comments

    Go Tamar

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yea cuz that’s really why he teactjose wigs and weave done pulled all her hair out everybody ain’t able!! Ppl like Kenya and porsha are having their real hair treated under the wigs and weaves and that’s why they are not bald under that heck even Nicki. When I wore sew ins I went to a lady that specializes in healthy hair so she treated my hair before after and during the sew in

  • BeUtFullSoul

I wear what I want when I want!! fake or real hair don’t define me or make me feel captive.LOL..tf ?.....women are envied the most because we can switch up our looks when and how we ant and still look good!! But in this case ?her and sanna lathan and other women going though it just possibly need a hug some good eggplant and possibly some Southern fried chicken and a cold glass of lemonade ....BOOM???? #BIbblleee

  • BeUtFullSoul

  • Junkanoo

    Wig or no wig l still can't stand her she will always be a muppet in my mind. Why do people need an audience for everything . Her followers are brain dead if they needed tamar to motivate them to stop wearing wigs.

  • iWasteTime

    You took the words right out of my mouth....She is having a mental breakdown because she is mean and nasty and always in a beef with someone...She ain't fooling me...She is the Black Britney Spears,all she needs to do next is buss a car window with an umbrella....

  • MsVAllDay

    I don't think this style is for everyone, but she actually looks better.

  • Coy little wink

    Everything ain't for everybody

  • Dowoop

    I was about to ask who is taking bets for the date she puts that wig back on.

  • imright

    best move shes made all year !! ????

  • TMW

    When I cut my hair, FREE is exactly the word I used! I didn’t wear weaves or wigs but I was tired of being a slave to stylists’ schedule, or worried about sweating out my hair when I worked out, and tired of that extra 20 minutes I needed every morning to comb my hair. Now I see the barber every couple of weeks, and save a WHOLE lot of money! GO TAMAR!

  • Dowoop

    Im tempted to do a sort cut but my face is so round and i dont know what lies beneath my hair so i have held back on doing it.

  • Dowoop

    7 mths!?! She will be popping that baby out soon then!

  • Dowoop

    Only reality show i could get my husband to watch with me. And 1 season of RHONJ...He thinks Theresa is nuts!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Good for her! She looks great. I guess i never understood why she felt she needed all those props & mops anyway. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c5524b933f3a29872256af8b9d30b4c9ec5914b980fdc0a0817cbbe688aa153.gif

  • TMW

    She’s so dumb.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    LOL!!!! girl! I just console myself by telling myself that my big head is a sign of intelligence, ROFL!!!!

  • Nina Ross

    So... she's baldheaded... well now we know why she runs around in a blond wipipo wig:/

  • Elevated Soul

    Natural is where it is at!!!! She actually looks better!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I have Locs now. I still get my hair done bc I love too. I think we should pamper ourselves however I love being natural.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I shaved my head once. I had locs and they were just too heavy. Sometimes I wore a wig; sometimes I wore a bandanna. People thought I had the the Big 'C'... It wasn't for me. I like hair...


    She's insecure about it thats why she used all those filters instead of just showing her bald head. She just an aggravating person.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I was wondering why she had filters also....

  • Quitedeliteful


  • SoulfulLove

    same here since 2004

  • Kanyade

    don’t they all “hide” behind filters, though?

    i cut all mine off two months ago to start over with a better regimen.

  • Quitedeliteful

    When I shaved my head there was nothing but face to look at. I mean you really see what you look like because there is no hair to 'distract' you. It looks good on some folks but it's a no for me...

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Sometime, you have to just let it go. It's not an easy choice. So bravo for her. I think about locking my hair. But i am afraid my texture is to fine to support it. i don't like the look when your locks have thinned out your crown, and it's lushes in the back. I feel that's what might happen to me.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    tell me about your loc journey?

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    tell me about your loc journey? did you start of with Faux locs?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm here to see Toni and Birdman
    I forgot about this show!!! I'll watch it just for Toni and Birdman too.

  • Jennifer

    She looks alot better without the blonde weave. Been natural all millennia and will never turn back! Nothing looks better on us than the way the Creator intended!

  • SoulfulLove

    Anything in particular? I cut all the perm out in 2004 and started my locs. I read up on it a few years before making the leap. The journey was spiritual for me. I learned patience among other things .

  • Quitedeliteful

    When it thins in the crown you have to cut some off from the bottom because it's too heavy. Once you do that it hangs different and doesn't look so thin anymore...

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Why do people on the net always feel the need to share every little detail of their life on line? We don't need to see EVERY DETAIL!!! You got a hair cut, OKAY... AND??? We saw Fetty Wap girlfriend talking to her baby... AND??? We don't need to see every freaking move you make. The only reason I can think of that Tamar did this was to prove that she had hair to start with and people won't say she was bald all along.

  • Keisha Hannah


  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Good for her...Next

  • V Dubb


  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hell you should wanna be over the plastic surgery too cause your soul looks the damn same... #Thirsty ... Tamar please go back and play with your abuser I don't buy your shyt like ever ... ?

  • Mec-One

    Waiting on the "about to take a spiritual pilgrimage to Wakanda" tweet ..........

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Narcricisst it's their platform ... flat out...

  • James Hudson

    Every chick can't rock short & long hair except Toni Braxton, Halle Berry, Sanaa Lathan, LeToya Luckett, Janet........But the Jury is still out on Tamar.

  • James Hudson


  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    we talking about someone that stays botox up under the knife now... This is strictly for attention Tamar is fraud

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I wish she didn't add the filter, cause then I could really see the look

  • Marlika

    Not everyone can rock a low cut and she isn’t one of them! And from the looks of the video chick was damn near bald from wearing all those wigs and weave. ?????

  • Soon2BWife

    She could have achieved this so called peace by losing the tranny wigs and casket ready make-up and logging out of social media and leaving it to her PR. I give her 3 weeks max. Freedom starts in your mind not thru a haircut. It will feel liberating for a moment. It’s like people that are miserable in one city and move to a new sittythinking their problem is solved. We are all rooting for you Tamar!

  • They’re ALL false God’s fools

    Either she lost a bet or she's not wrapped too tight.

  • mona q

    All right Tamar! I'm here for it!

  • mona q

    Any chick who wants to rock a low haircut can...beauty is in the eye of the beholder for everyone saying that "not everyone can"... If she is more comfortable in her skin then that's great. Not everyone can rock a silky straight wig/weave either but people still do...because THEY think they look good it in...I've seen people with wigs and/or weaves that features just doesn't match the hair texture and it just doesn't look good TO ME...but to each their own. I keep my mouth shut and keep it moving because I rock locs and not everyone appreciates locs either...

    It goes without saying that it's your head and you can do whatever you want with it...I will however keep saying this: IF your kids (or spouse for that matter) don't know what your actual hair looks like (how it grows out of your scalp), then you have a problem...you are not living your true self and you are not giving your true self to your immediate family...I personally know of more than 2 people who have kids and husbands who only know them with weave, perm, wigs and have no idea what their real hair looks like...it's not THAT important but I think it is important.

  • Patty Anderson

    How about she release herself from feeling the need to surgically alter her face?

  • Roxie Moxie

    I guess the same reason we comment on every post that Sandra provides. *shrugs* People could say the same about our opinions; not all have to be shared. Just like mines! lol

  • leapyearpisces

    I don't like the look on her, however in life we have to metaphorically and literally tear things down to build them back up greater than they were, so I am here for it. If she commits to the PROCESS, her real hair will be in better shape than it was before. Do you, chile.

  • blue skies

    ??come on britney spears

  • suganspice68

    I have a feeling that she will get another lace front wig to wear,that new natural look aint going to last with Tamar.

  • suganspice68

    I think she is jumping on the natural bandwagon

  • suganspice68

    Lol,Tamar aint fooling nobody

  • Tish

    When women want to be free or going through a new chapter in life, we usually start with the hair. I'm guilty of it.

  • justlooking

    I cut my hair off, cause I was tired of putting in a pontytail everyday. I like it now IT's sassy and grown.

  • Karen Brady


  • suganspice68

    On another blogsite,some lady said while Tamar was getting her hair shaved;She was looking like Fire Marshall Bill .Lol

    Rock it Girl and cut your back talking and rudeness

  • https://www.thewhatsup.org Hair Lova ???

    Sometimes you just looking for change. Something different, new and fresh. Also when women transition out of old relationships, they cut their hair as well. Whatever prompted the change, I am here for it. As a bald headed girl myself!

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah....that bald head pic was filtered.....why?? If you being 100% real...don't use the filer...show us what you really look like!!

    Either way I don't care....wearing weaves and wigs is a fashion choice...and nobody should shamed because they wear them...different strokes for different folks....

  • KcoolMuziq

    Didn't Beyonce try this once?

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    OT: Can anyone tell me where/how I would get those thick eyebrows like Tamar? I notice a lot of women with those thick eyebrows. What are they called? Do you shave your eyebrows and draw it in?

  • Tena

    I always said that she would look good with a bald head. Wish the picture was clearer, but she looks fantastic.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

  • Drea982

  • ImWoke

    I bet she’s parading around in a wig right now.

  • don juan

    A documented fact is many married women who go through a very traumatic experience with their husband cut their hair.

  • Patty Anderson

    When the meds aren't working.....cut your hair.
