A Man's Perspective on O'Natural: Meet WILLIAM ELSTON

Hola Chicas/Chicos...I pray all is well with everyone.

Well, this feature is a little different, but needed and exciting all the same. So many times we hear a woman's point of view on going O'Natural..the ups, the downs, the frustrations, etc. So, I think it's time to hear a male's perspective on All Things O'Natural.

Meet William Elston, a music producer who currently resides in New York. Not only handsome, but extremely comical, William, who is in fact living a celibate lifestyle, has a dedicated love for producing gospel music and has a love for great music in general. So, I hope you enjoy William's perspective..

1.) When did you decide to grow locks? What influenced your decision to grow locks? 

 I decided to grow them 5years ago after seeing Busta Rhymes with his. I got them to build my character due to the fact I had low self esteem from the childhood I endured from my parents calling me ugly and weird so I wanted some form of attention, but now I love them for the history and its beauty it possess.

2.) It has been said many times that black men, in particular, are not as accepting of natural hair on black you find that true and what are your views of natural hair?  

Very True for a lot of men.  I love women who are natural, at first I didn't like it, but I was more into weave at that time and had no clue it was natural when I saw women with their own hair.

3.) How important is hair in overall attractiveness?  

I think it is very important to the eye of the beholder(men in general). We are wired to see before we hear.

4.) Would you support your significant other's choice to go O'Natural?  

Yes I would support it, I love women who go natural.

5.) How do you view women that wear weaves/wigs?  

I don't view them because I appreciate everything about women.

6.) Now, women with natural hair often wear satin scarves or satin bonnets to bed to protect their tresses and retain moisture, how do you feel about satin sleeping bonnets or any type of hair scarf? 

I sleep with a wrap as well to keep my Natural fresh.

8.) Does it matter to you whether your significant other’s hair is kinky, curly or straight? 

I love when a woman change it up a little.


Hope you enjoyed!!!

  6. Yes, it is great to hear a man's perspective on "natural hair" for a change. My husband is so open-minded, eccentric, etc... So my going natural was welcomed by him, and it made the transition that much easier. So to the ladies contemplating going natural...GO AHEAD AND DO IT!!!! U won't regret it TRUST.
