For this month’s instalment of #HairGoals I decided to choose someone who has always caught my eye with her beauty and her absolutlely flawless hair. Considering that she usually wears her hair short she is pretty versatile when it comes to her looks. From naturally curly to finger waves, from brown to blonde; she has fun with her looks and I’m all here for it!
Letoya Luckett is a former member of the R&B group Destiny’s Child. She sold over 25 million albums as a member of the Destiny’s child. When she left the group (or got kicked out – whichever story you wanna tell) she didn’t let that stop her! My girl had a story to tell and that she did with her solo debut album, LeToya which was released in 2006. It topped the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart in July 2006, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in December 2006.
The lead single, “Torn” was a smash hit! And became a hit on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, peaking at number two. She was also named “One of the Best New Artists of 2006” by AOL and the “Top Songwriter of 2006” by ASCAP.
She released her second solo album, Lady Love in 2009 and I was officially in love. It featured the bangers “Regret” featuring Ludacris and “Not Anymore.” It debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and also as No. 12 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.
She released her third album “Back to Life” in 2017 and also got married the later that same year. She is currently starring in the play “Set it off” which is the stage adaptation of the 1996 classic film “Set it Off”.
Here are some of my favourite looks and maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your #HairGoals!
See you next month ladies!
