She’s probably your favorite’s favorite. She’s an icon and a legend. And in 2004, her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard. If you haven’t figured it out already, we’re talking about THE Kelis Rogers. People know her from hits like “Milkshake” and “Bossy” and her recent news about being “lied to and tricked” by Chad Hugo and Pharell Williams a.k.a. the Neptunes. Many actually don't know her impact on music, fashion, and even beauty. 

Kelis constantly transcended cultural norms in all facets. When we revisit her music and compare it to the sound of R&B and Hip-Hop of that particular time, it’s clear that her music had its own lane. When the girls of the 90s and 2000s were giving us smooth and sultry hits, Kelis came out with screamo and electronic music. For instance, one of her most popular hits “Caught Out There” and “Young Fresh N’ New”

While artists were playing it safe with natural browns and black hair weaves, Kelis experimented with different hair colors and natural styles. Below, we’ve listed our top 5 Kelis looks that prove why Kelis will forever be our hair crush!
