One of Tamar Braxton’s newest Instagram posts prominently features a new hair color that could be another kiss-off to her estranged husband Vincent Herbert.
The singer on Wednesday posed in a black beach-ready dress accessorized by a necklace and oversized sunglasses. But the main attraction continues to be Braxton’s closely cut hair, which has been newly dyed purple.
“That time @fashionnova showed up right on time on that thick natural girl😎,” she captioned the June 27 image.
Fans swiftly began fawning over the star’s hair and her beach-ready body and outfit.
“Yesssss honey I’m loving the hair color and the beat to the T… Yesssss 😘😘😘😘.”
“I mean this purple hair!!??!!😍😍😍😍.”
“Love that purple rain hair color.”
“Lawd honey that bawdy and chocolatey tan @tamarbraxton.”
“Digging the new look! #inspired.”
It’s the latest time Braxton has publicly embraced the new hairstyle she’s been sporting since March. At the time, she wrote on Instagram that she was “finally free.”
She later explained on “Steve” that same month that she wore blonde wigs because that’s what Herbert liked.
“I believe in being attractive for your mate … I used to have all blonde wigs; I have 150,000 of them at my house since I shaved my hair off,” she said. “They’re all on sale, by the way. Vince likes blonde hair, light-faired women … For me, I just think that’s a responsibility that women have, to stay current for your man.”
The statement aided speculation that Braxton ditched the weaves and wigs as a statement on the state of her marriage to Herbert, which began to end when she filed to divorce him last year.
However, Braxton put that talk down when she explained she ditched the long tresses because she was sick of “feeling captive to a wig, weave, people, people’s comments & opinions hell…even my OWN feelings! WE can choose to stop these things from having the power and victory over us!! And for me, that starts TODAY 🤸🏾♀️ #happysttamarsday🍀.”
