If you follow reality star Laura Govan on social media, you know that several months ago the beauty went from long locks to a short, sexy hairdo. And while the star is rocking the business out of her new look, there was actually a reason behind the shocking cut. WARNING: BEFORE YOU CONTINUE READING, GET A TISSUE.
While on the red carpet for Chris Paul’s CP3 fundraising event in Beverly Hills, Govan shared with HipHollywood that chopping off her hair was simply a teaching moment for her daughter. “My daughter, she has a different textured type of hair and she gets it from her dad. She was asking me about the length of my hair and it was down to almost my butt. I told her ‘you know what, hair is not important.’ She said ‘really?’ I said ‘yeah, I’ll show you.'”
Govan continued, “I cut it off. I took a shaver and I shaved the side. She thought I was crazy but she’s eight and I had to explain to her that hair doesn’t make who you are. I wanted her to know that beauty and who you are is more than your hair and your looks. It’s about how you act, the things you do, the kindness, the ‘I can be a b*tch but I am really, really naturally nice all the time.’ I just want to teach her things”
The reality star admitted, “I didn’t have a damn clue what I was doing. I didn’t know how this sh*t was going to look, I didn’t know how it was going to come out.”
Govan’s four children are with former NBA star, Gilbert Arenas.
