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:

    Lovely physique & hair…. Go girl!!!

  • hmm

    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

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

  • eve-audrey

    i love it! maybe it’s just me but i think natural hair makes women look younger.

  • Jacky

    She looks great!

  • At last I hope her sister follows. I am tired of the fakeness tired of not seeing natural hair.

  • Alwina

    Love it!

  • Mercy

    Her puff is cute. =)

  • Bookstar

    She looks sooooooo much better with her own hair. Go, V.!

  • trekwoman21

    I’m so proud her. It looks great. I hope she keeps wearing her hair like this.

    This is the best Venus’ hair has looked in a decade!

  • Kelly

    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.

      they’ve been together for awhile now! very low key couple, they are cute :)

  • Sharon J

    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.

    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

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