While Kenya Moore may be contemplating cutting her hair, Melanie Fiona went ahead and chopped off inches of her long black locks and now she’s rocking a bomb lob.
According to Fiona, who cut her own hair, she’s been wanting to pick up the shears for over a year. However, she kept letting outside obstacles get in her way. She woke up, during the quarantine, with clear intentions and did the chop!
“So a couple weeks ago, I woke up with clear intention,” she captioned video showing her rocking two long pigtails before snipping off the ends. “To energetically move along the process I have felt so stagnated by, and to do something to empower myself without needing anyone’s permission or validation. I TOLD NO ONE. Not a single person. This was solely for me. – an exercise in empowerment, breaking cycles, energetic release, and rebirth.”
Fiona isn’t the only celeb to pick up the scissors during this quarantine, grown-ish star Yara Shahidi clipped her curly bangs.
Fiona has taken time away from the spotlight to focus on her mental health as well as enjoy motherhood. During a panel at CurvyCon in 2019, she revealed she was struggling to maintain her grammy award winning singing voice. Doctors couldn’t identify a physical problem with her vocal cords when she realized she was storing the pain from heartbreak in her most valued place.
“I realized I was storing all of this disappointment from heartbreak, disappointment from how I thought my career should have been going at that time. … I had a physical reaction to it.”
Since healing, Fiona has found a sense of peace.
