Britain’s Evening Standard has learnt a big lesson not to mess with Solange Knowles’ hair.
In a statement published on Saturday, the newspaper tendered apology to the singer for digitally omitting the vertical braided crown worn by her for its weekly magazine cover, stating it was actually done for layout motives. (Showing the whole crown would have resulted to showing less of her outfit and shoulders.)
Find the real shot below:
Knowles uploaded the image to her Instagram on Friday, captioning the newspaper with “dtmh,” an short form for “Do not Touch My Hair.”
The circle over her head was omitted digitally in the last photo, here it is:

“Obviously, the wrong call was made,” the editors stated, “and we owe Solange and have tendered our apology.”
The magazine article has the singer speaking on her past experiences spending time in her mom’s salon as a kid. She also talked about how importance braiding is to her and embraced it as “its own form of art.”
