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!!!


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!


she is a sweet one for sure!


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


She looks great!


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


Love it!


Her puff is cute. =)


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


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!


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 :)

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… Read more »
