Solange Knowles has revealed that she used to spend $50,000 (£31,500) on her hair before she shaved it all off earlier this year.

The 'T.O.N.Y' singer, who is the younger sister of Beyoncé, admitted that she felt addicted to having her hair styled.

"Realistically I was spending about $40,000-$50,000 (£25,000-£30,000) a year and probably half of my life. I grew up in a hair salon, my mum owned a hair salon," she told The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"There was always this feeling of always wanting to be in the salon once or twice a week and I got a perm pretty early - I was four."

Earlier this year, Solange claimed that she opted for the radical haircut to escape the "bondage that black women sometimes put themselves in with their hair".
