Celebrity Hair

All About Janet...Miss Jackson if You're Nasty!

I can't believe that in the two plus years I've been blogging, I have never featured one of my biggest style icons (and fitness inspirations, hence the ab shot above). The celebrity hair section of PYCAG would not be the same without the one, the only, Miss Janet Jackson!

The way so many people admire and fawn all over Beyonce is the same way I felt about Janet Jackson growing up.

When Janet stepped onto the scene with Pleasure Principle, I begged my mom to cut my virgin hair (I was so young I wasn't even relaxed at the time!) so that I could get the same china bangs and graduated layers Janet sported in the video. My mom thought the style was too mature for me (and it was), so she denied my request, but that didn't stop me from trying to mimic Janet's every move! When she donned a baseball cap and ponytail during her Rhythm Nation phase, I did too. When she wore a roller set while dancing with the sexy Djimon Hounsou and Antonio Sabato Jr. in her Love Will Never Do video, I started rocking roller sets, and my hair grew a lot thanks to them too ;-). And of course, my sisters and I (and the rest of my Junior High class) ran out and got dookie braids after Poetic Justice came out!

So, if you couldn't already tell, I love Janet, and have compiled some pics featuring the many looks she's worn throughout the years. Some are of her real hair, while others were achieved by way of extensions. I must say that Janet, well at least in my opinion, has some of the tightest weaves in the game! Check her out:

I LOVE JANET!!! I was such a huge fan of her an Michael. My friends still tease me today b/c I knew all the dances to her videos (they don't tease me about Mike b/c they knew his too) and I followed her style trends like a STALKER!!!! lol I still get excited and my heart skips a beat when I see her. I have the geekiest JDJ and MJJ scrap book ever! lol. Definitely a style icon.

I could not agree more with this post! Janets style overall is to die for..What I love most is when she's rockin curls or waves she is so goregeous and I am like How in the world can I get those results. I was once searching for new hair care products and I think it is or somethin similar had Janet on their celebs list that they claimed used their product for great results thats all I needed to be sold on the product...Her body has always been rockin as well talk about some ripped abs if I could get a peek at her exercise routine believe me I'd be a sold customer. Thanks for bringing her into the light!
