Solange Knowles discusses her decision to break ties with Carol’s Daughter in the new issue of Lurve magazine, in addition to posing for a funky fashion shoot. Knowles, who became a spokesmodel of the beauty brand in 2011, shared that she could not see eye to eye with the management team of the company regarding their natural hair messaging.
“I’m actually no longer a part of Carol’s Daughter, but throughout my entire time working with them, I was constantly fighting for the right message to be heard,” she told the glossy. “The message that, the way we wear our hair is a personal choice, there’s no right or wrong way; one way doesn’t make us more intelligent, or more superficial, and every one makes that choice for very different reasons.”
In response to Knowles’ announcement that she is no longer representing the brand, company chairman Steve Stoute released the following statement to The Huffington Post over email: ”Carol’s Daughter celebrates women who embody beauty by nature such as Solange. We value our relationship with her and the women we were able to empower by partnering with such an authentic spirit.”
