Taraji P. Henson is a total chameleon when it comes to changing her hair. Over the years she’s been in the industry, she has rocked a wide variety of looks that always keep her fans guessing. She has worn her hair long and short, she has rocked slightly lighter shades and also stuck to jet black, she has kept her hair smooth and sleek and also embraced its natural texture. The beauty looks flawless no matter how she wears her hair, and she seems to enjoy playing around with the different possibilities.
In her latest Instagram update, Taraji stunned her 14.7 million Instagram followers with a throwback shot from her role in Tyler Perry’s movie I Can Do Bad All By Myself. The particular snap that she shared was actually a repost of a picture that makeup artist Carol Rasheed posted in honor of the film’s 10 year anniversary.
In the caption of her own post, Taraji lamented at how quickly time passed, and also shared the fact that she made major memories while working on the project. In the snap, the actress rocked a simple black dress and stood in front of a microphone singing her heart out with her hair in a voluminous afro.
While the afro was styled for the cameras, Taraji is no stranger to embracing her hair’s natural texture in real life. As The Inquisitr recently reported, Taraji attended the U.S. Open to support tennis superstar Serena Williams, and surprised fans with a lighter, natural hairstyle that looked absolutely stunning.
