Solange Knowles Reminds the 'London Evening Standard' to Not Touch Her Hair

She captioned the photo "dtmh", as in "Don't Touch My Hair"-her song about pride, respect, and black hair, which itself is referenced in ES Magazine's story". But we guess some people just weren't listening closely enough.

Since releasing her personal and politically-charged album "A Seat at the Table", the 31-year-old has made a point of amplifying not only the messages behind her music, but manifesting them through her outer appearance, too. The "Cranes in the Sky" singer, 31, covers the Evening Standard Magazine latest issue, and while she looks attractive as always, her hairstyle has been blatantly photoshopped with a disturbing adjustment. Despite the statement-making style, the mag cover shows no such trace of anything above Solange's scalp.

The British magazine put the songstress on their latest cover but chose to Photoshop off her braided crown.

The magazine posted several other images on their official account featuring her epic braid, but the damage was already done. "Can't believe they did that, so disrespectful", another commented.

Then on Instagram stories, Solange not only posted her own little edited image of the cover.

The perp did not get away with much before getting spotted and chased away by security. "The guy didn't stop with the Wests ". There was a gold digger on Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's property but the thief could only get as far as their auto .

It's certainly a odd move on the magazine's part, which has yet to explain why it chose to alter Solange's hair. Her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, once owned a salon in their native Houston, TX, where Solange would watch women come and go.

The singer is styled in a set of blonde braids, courtesy of Joanne Petit-Frére and the Knowles sisters' longtime collaborator Vernon François.

"The brunette beauty said: "[It is] an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition.it is its own art form". Growing up there was pivotal.

"I got to experience women arriving in one state of mind and leaving in a completely transformed way. It wasn't just about the hair", she continued. It was about the sisterhood and the storytelling. Yesterday, she responded to the change by posting an unedited shot to Instagram.
