This lady here, never fails to impress. Of course she can stick to her traditionally pretty looking, flawless, voluminious locks. But I love the fact that she experiments so frequently and isn't afraid to push boundaries. Having said that, it's genius how queen bey's style is so wearable and relatable, hardly ever too edgy, daring or rebellious like Rihanna's. These super long braids have recently been my favourite look of her's before she set off on tour this year. The overall effect is just so laid back, low maintenance and boho-chic for Spring/Summer. It contrasts so well with her super chic and structured outfits and looks flattering with flowy maxis. If you can find a good afro hair salon, you can replicate Beyonce's braids too!
This gorgeous dame here is someone I (and the entire world) am obsessed with. She's simply so relatable and I love watching her interviews. She's just so much at peace and carefree and her personality surely captures your first. Although in Lupita's case, it doesn't hurt to have flawless skin and inspirational hair. Her no fuss attitude to hair is to die for. She loves to style it in different ways but always keeps it natural. The most I've seen her experiment with it is via a tint of purple colour for a red carpet recently. Although I love my long hair, I feel she's the only celebrity that can pull off the short bob look the best in my opinion. She's the perfect example of ditching those weaves and hair extensions and going au naturale once in a while and accepting your natural hair texture, quite brilliantly.
Gina Torres is a well known face but to be honest I've only ever seen her on Netflix in Suits. After back to back episodes of the cult-favourite law drama, it's simply so hard to ignore her character 'Jessica Pearson', her styling, hair and make-up. She's usually seen with glamorous curls, waves, a Kate Middletone-esque blow dry or sleek, straight hair, depending on the season you're watching. Her face shape and features just make her pull off all these hairstyles and more with so much ease. If you are ever planning to get a hair weave done at an afro salon, she's the perfect hairspiration to keep it natural, polished and chic. Nothing over the top or difficult to sport, simply perfect for all occasions and outfits.
Nathalie Emmanuel is a British actress who I've recently had a girl crush on via Game of Thrones. It's quite obvious that 'Khaleesi' has beautiful tresses and we all know how the ethereal platinum locks are all faux. But Nathalie playing her helper since season 3, has made me take more notes of her hair instead. It's simple and untampered keeping in mind that Game of Thrones is set in the 'olden' (read mythical) days, however the texture of her locks, those tight spiral and voluminous bunch of tresses that have been given the most flattering cut in history are effortlessly stunning and frame her delicate, baby face almost in a customised manner. Of course that coppery colour with hints of honey and caramel is something you can definitely show hairdressers at an afro hair salon to replicate the youthful look.
