We Counted 30+ Natural Hair Styles in Ciara’s Rooted Music Video

Multi-talented singer, dancer and model Ciara released the music video for her latest single, “Rooted” last week.

The Black Excellence solidarity anthem features exquisite visuals, pulsating beats, stimulating verses, electrifying and energetic dance moves.

There are tributes to the Black Lives Matter movement and unarmed victims of controversial police involved incidents sprinkled within it as well.

You can also spot cameos of the “Level Up” singer’s children, Sierra Princess Wilson and Future Zahir Wilburn in the video as well.

And did I mention she did this video while she was in labor and about to deliver her third child, son, Winn?

He is her second child with husband Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

With a song with the name “root” within it, of course you could expect to see a wide plethora of ethnic and black hair styles. They flashed by my screen too fast so I decided to slow down the reel and count them all for you.
