You may know Teyonah Parris from her recurring role in the hit TV series, Mad Men. But can we talk about her hair for one second? The actress works with renowned hair stylists to create the sensational styles we see her donning on the red carpet. However, the starlet has revealed that she occasionally does her own hair. We’re here to break down her topmost awe-inspiring hairstyles to date. Sit back and prepare to experience some major hair envy.
Teyonah made her big splash in 2013 at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards. She stepped out in a pompadour-inspired updo that merged into a fro-hawk down the middle and slicked down on the sides. This style created by celebrity stylist, Felicia Leatherwood, ignited a frenzy within the natural hair community. If you didn’t know who Teyonah was, now you do!
You’d be forgiven to think this is a lovely weave. Well, it’s not. It’s her hair. All of it. The question on everyone’s mind is how did she manage to get it to look like that? She stated in an interview, that she’s been natural for about 7 to 8 years now. So don’t sweat it! She’s been at it for a while.
Felicia Leatherwood is the natural hair whisperer. She’s behind many of Teyonah’s hairstyles and those of other A-list celebrities including Skai Jackson(Disney Channel Star), Issa Rae(TV Show, Insecure) and Simone Missick(Marvel’s Luke Cage). For this look, she created what looks like two-strand twist outs. We approve!
Teyonah Parris walked down the red carpet of the 2015 Emmy Awards in her perfectly coiffed mane stealing our hearts and snatching our edges at the same time. Darico Jackson is the hairstylist behind these luxurious curls. This look featured soft jumbo curls side swept to one side and a flat twist on the other side.
In as much as Teyonnah wears her hair in updo’s, chic buns and flowy curls, she likes to wear her hair in an afro, showcasing its true natural state and beautiful texture. When it comes to caring for her hair, her daily routine involves keeping her hair moisturized using water and some conditioner and she keeps it moving. And when she decides to wash her hair, she always makes sure it is stretched beforehand. She does this by creating a few big chunky twists to stretch the hair.
