Solange Knowles released her newest album, A Seat on the Table, on Sept. 30. Almost immediately afterwards, she released the powerful video for the single "Don't Touch My Hair," which went viral. Black women around the world celebrated the visually stunning video (which included a variety of incredible natural hairstyles) and its empowering message about their hair.
"Don't touch my hair, when it's the feelings I wear . . . Don't touch my crown, they say the vision I've found," declared the lyrics. Feeling inspired, many took to Instagram to proudly show off their own coifs. In addition to a toddler who re-created the cover for Solange's album (hair clips and all!), women flaunted protective styles, lush Afros, and more. Read on to see some of our favourites.
