Hair Inspiration: A Look Back at Some of Issa Rae’s Best Hair Moments

Published

 on

One of the most empowering parts of natural hair is its versatility. Kinky, curly and coily-these are just a few variations of hair textures found on black women. In mainstream media, actual depictions of that range of hair types are rare.

From HBO’s Emmy-winning series Insecure to the cover of magazines and red carpets, multi-hyphenated Senegalese-American Issa Rae has worn her natural hair with pride and in styles that have provided endless inspiration for people in the natural hair community.

Braids twist outs and updos are among some of the beautiful ways she experiments with her strands. Thanks to Issa and a few select celebrities, we’re slowly getting more representation of natural hairstyles on TV, on red carpets, on covers, etc.

From a major fro inspo on the 2021 Rolling Stone cover to her elegant red-carpet-ready braided updo for Insecure’s finale premiere, below are some of the most covetable natural and protective hairstyles Issa has rocked.
