Venus Williams Rocks a Curly Puff on the Tennis Court

Is this going to be Venus’ new competition look?! While competing at the 2013 Sony Open yesterday Venus rocked a cute tie dye outfit and a curly puff — a departure from the braids and extensions she normally wears. We definitely approve of this and hope this will be her new default look ;) Check it out:

  1. Her lil puff is cute. Didn’t even notice her edges.. thin edges are normal for some people you know.

    Funny how this post doesn’t even have HALF the comments that Nicki post received. Thought some of you wanted pictures of stars who are good role models and such? Lol

  2. love venus! even when she wears those gawd awful outfits, love her love her love her! what a wonderful person!

  3. I’m not against weaves and extensions but I think this looks better than the weaves. She looks fresher and younger. Also, I saw a picture online of her Cuban boyfriend, Elios, who is kissing her while she is wearing this Afro puff. He’s at this match, he’s a model, and he’s gorgeous!! So much for that terrible myth about Black women not being able to get a man with their hair natural.

  4. She looks pretty. Her puff is healthy and full. I’m sure its more comfortable playing tennis without the weaves — not hating, those were cute on her, too. Venus and Serena are both very pretty young women.

  5. On one hand i say she looks great,& her natural hair looks awesome, …but on another, Its just hair. She’s a world champion internationally recognized tennis player. Why is her hair even an issue of relevance? Even though this is a positive article I also think this is why we see asinine stories about black hair (like the flack Gabby Douglas got). ‘Natural’ hair should be considered just normal as anything else. Once so much attention isn’t caused by something as trivial as hair it will be easier for women, specifically black ones, to not be plauged by what is inherently a non issue

  6. Asking questions are genuinely fastidious thing if you are not
    understanding anything totally, but this paragraph presents nice understanding yet.
