The Screen Actors Guild Awards was on Sunday. With it came the usual best dressed and worst dressed lists all over the internet. What has not been talked about is the great natural hair styles that were worn to the formal event. Us natural girls are always on the constant search for the next fun protective style and this was definitely a head-turner. Mad Men actress Teyonah Parris wore a pompadour/fro-hawk on the red carpet that was nothing short of amazing!
The actress plays character Dawn Chambers on the hit show Mad Men. She is the first African-American to be hired at the fictional advertising firm. Her character wears a short wig on the role so it was refreshing to see her in her natural state. Hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood hooked her up with this dope hair-do. Leatherwood has also been linked to some of Jill Scott’s most lovely hairstyles.
We usually see weaves, wigs or sleek ponytails on Black actresses during these red carpet events. Teyonah Parris’ style shows us how versatile our hair can be, at any texture. This look would be perfection at a wedding, prom or other formal event. I think I will be logging this look into my mental files for later!
Ladies, what do you think of her funky up-do?
