Chlöe has single-handedly reimagined how to wear dreadlocks thanks to her stepping outside of the box with her hairstyles. The singer along with her sister Halle Bailey began their loc journey when they were children, and while their hair is beautiful as is, Chlöe has shown that loc versatility is a realm she plans to master.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, the “Have Mercy” singer credited her mom for having confidence in wearing dreadlocks. “I definitely have to give props to my mom,” she said. “Because ever since I was about three years old, I've had locs. I've grown up in Atlanta, Georgia, and I thought nothing was really different with my hair from the other kids. Definitely, I realized early on in the industry, having locs wasn't really normal. But I feel like when you are confident with yourself, and you own it, then everyone else has to catch up to that. And I'm so grateful to be given a platform as a young Black woman with locs.”
Honing in on that confidence translates into Chlöe's recent hairstyles, which include extensions from curly to bold hair colors. Get into the hair versatility below:
The singer blew fans away after she rocked blonde locs in her “Have Mercy” video. While she never shared why she decided to go blonde after rocking her natural brown color for so long, it was clear to everyone that this was just another way of showing her personality outside of her sister after the two of them have been in a group for so long.
Last Halloween, the 24-year-old singer/actress dressed up as Jada Pinkett Smith’s character Niobe in The Matrix: Reloaded and sported Bantu knots similar to the character. In the first series of photos she posted on Instagram, Chlöe captioned it, “Welcome to the matrix…lmao this my last one yall.” In the second series of photos, she captioned the post “if this wasn’t a costume, i’d still wear it.”
The Grown-ish actress shined like a “disco ball” at the 2022 Grammy Awards. Chlöe pulled out the baby hairs and wore her locs slicked back in a high, voluminous ponytail. In a series of photos, she swung her ponytail from side to side giving us angles.
During Grammy weekend, Chlöe attended the Recording Academy Honors presented by The Black Music Collective. The singer was giving glam and sophistication as she sported a big curly ‘fro paired with a sexy black gown. She captioned her Instagram post, “what’s the tea?”
For the 2021 American Music Awards, she debuted her red hot locs on the red carpet while wearing a cut-out black gown. That night, she performed her hit song “Have Mercy.”
