Ciara is making her way back into the spotlight — in a very big way! The famously experimental singer debuted a full head of big, wild curls on her Instagram account on Wednesday, July 31, a far cry from her usual short waves.
"Can U Feel My Energy?" she captioned the shot of herself grinning brightly into the camera. "I Hope So." The "Body Party" singer added the hashtag "smile" to the end of her cheery message.
In May, the singer showed off a pretty new shaggy bob cut that elicited more than 55,000 likes on Instagram. Her stylist, Cesar Ramirez, told Us Weekly at the time that he "wanted to do something that was fashion-forward and fresh by mixing a bit of rocker edge with some old-school hip-hop flare."
The singer, who released her first album in three years in early July, recently told Us Weekly that her eponymous album has a "great energy" that is largely influenced by her relationship with boyfriend, rapper Future.
"I was really just going for my fans being able to feel me emotionally and then Future came in and added this whole great energy onto it. I had started with something, but everything evolved really well and changed into a very true expression of my life right now," she said of her beau.
"I was feeling so much love and passion while I was making it," she continued. "It was a very special time in my life where I was starting this new relationship and sparks were happening so I wanted people to feel me. I felt that my fans got to hear the performer side of me before, but with this album I really wanted people to feel what I was feeling and be able to relate to me on an emotional level and my emotions were happy and sexy."
