Textured Updos at the Golden Globes

If you’re anything like me, you were glued to the TV Sunday evening for the biggest event in Hollywood. I don’t mean the Golden Globes, but the Golden Globes RED CARPET! Every year I look forward to looking out for the best and worst dressed on the red carpet and this year I couldn’t help but notice a fabulous hair trend, textured updos. Celebrities like Issa Rae and Tracee Ellis Ross not only arrived dressed as chic as can be, but proved that your hair is your crown. Check out these Goddesses and try to tell me that their hairstyles aren’t everything!

Actress, Issa Rae

Actress, Issa Rae, made her debut on the red carpet in a beaded gown by Christian Siriano and continues to be an inspiration to the Natural hair community. The star of Insecure proved to be very secure in her confidence with a double twisted coif.

Actress/Singer Janelle MonaeActress/Singer Janelle Monae made sure that all eyes were on her. We’ve gotten used to seeing her in tuxedos but when she stepped onto the Red Carpet, I instantly said “Those legs!” but quickly changed it to “That hair!” Who else do you know that can pull off a mane full of pearls?!

Actress, Tracee Ellis Ross

Actress, Tracee Ellis Ross, has been #CurlyHairGoals since I was in Middle School. All of Dr. Rainbow Johnson’s hairstyles on the hit comedy Black-ish can be added to your “Natural Hair Inspo” board on Pinterest. Her simple, curly ponytail at the Golden Globes proved that sometimes less is more.

Zazie Beetz, star of the new series, AtlantaZazie Beetz, star of the new series, Atlanta, served some of the hottest trends all in one; minimalistic eye makeup, a little side-boob and a messy but oh-so-fabulous updo! Zazie made me just a little more confident that my hair can be fancy with some curls and a few bobby pins. “Bed-head chic” if you will.

The Red Carpet was full of radiance and one thing was evident, these ladies came to slay!
