First it was Trey Songz, then Omarion, and now Lloyd has decided to snip off his trademark braids. Earlier today, the R&B singer surprised his fans by revealing his new look on Twitter, which was for a worthy cause. Lloyd, who has been growing his hair for over 10 years, felt he needed a change, and it was time to give back. By cutting off his famous locks, the non-profit organization Locks Of Love will now use his hair to provide a new hair piece for a financially disadvantaged child, who primarily suffers from long-term [medical] hair loss. Here’s what he had to say about his cut:
I’ve been growing my hair since 9th grade. It’s time for a new me. The fact that my hair will go to someone that needs it more than me, makes me feel great about my decision. I’m doing this for me. I feel like it’s time for a change and now is the perfect time.”
Shout to Kingz & Vibe.
