When A Mistake Becomes Fab: Kelly Rowland And The Unintentional Bob


It’s an experience that many of us could attest to over processing our hair. People Magazine recently linked up with Kelly Rowland to discuss her new ambassadorship with Caress as a  ‘Fabulista’, and they asked her about the new haircut. This is when we all learned it was not intentional at all.

She over processed her hair with dye. How long did she keep the dye in you ask? TWO HOURS

“I wanted to experiment and color my own hair. That was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I thought it was semi-permanent color. It was permanent color,” the star explains. “I was packing up to leave for a red eye flight, and I thought that I’d have enough time to rinse it out cause I’ve kept semi-permanent color on long before.”

But wait, there’s more!

 “I ended up keeping it in for almost two hours and the permanent color ate all of my hair. My hair had grown down to like right where my shoulder hits, it was nice and healthy and thick. I went and reached for the back of my hair and it was all in my hand! So I went to my stylist the next day and said, ‘So, my hair’s broken off, I need you to fix it.’ He was like, ‘How did this happen?’ and then cut all my hair off and it just turned out really cute. I actually used Beyoncé’s hairstylist, Neal [Farinah]. Neal cut my hair and I love it.”


So there is a lesson to be learned from all this- make sure you read the box and double check that it’s a semi-permanent rather than a permanent-permanent. Regardless, Kelly looks great with her new do don’t you think?

    I would freak out if I did that to my hair, but her short hair looks really cute on her.

    I have always been a fan of Kelly with short hair. I cut my hair all off to my ears in 2008 and let me just say – while I enjoyed it a little – I hated it after and glad I have my long hair. It can be a pain, but still – I rather have long hair. lol My coloring can do some damage though.
