Who What Where: Shingai Shoniwa

"As I get older, I’m more comfortable in my own skin."
                                                 ~Shingai Shoniwa

Who: Shingai Shoniwa.

What: The bassist and lead singer of the Noisettes — frequently cited as one of the best live acts in Britain — plays the punk-soul chanteuse with ease. (albeit with complicated onstage hair)?

Where: In The New York Times' T-Magazine article about modern beauties who believe that messy is more.

Here's a message to the writer who said her hair is complicated. There's nothing complicated about our hair or hers for that matter. Maybe you're the one who's complicated or better yet confused because you don't understand the relationship we have with our hair. Didn't you listen when she said she loves the skin she's in and accepts it? That includes the whole package.

Shingai is lovely, lively, and I bet she's the best live act in Briatin and anywhere. I love her, love her, love her. Her hair is amazing, her style, her voice, her self-assurance, I think she's an example for artists and women everywhere.
