CHANGING INDUSTRY STANDARDS: VIOLA DAVIS DITCHES THE WIGS FOR NATURAL HAIR.


Famous, African American celebrities typically modified their appearance, for the acceptance and approval of those in the industry. Industry standards are dictated and dominated by blondes or brunettes, straight hair, or the occasional red head. Not many respected African American celebs step foot in the public eye with their natural hair, especially if it's of a kinkier texture like Oscar nominee, Viola Davis. Listening to the reactions to one of Viola's first public appearances with her natural hair, the buzz was synonymous. She looked radiant, glamourous  and  a million times better than her typical grandma wigs, that looked far from customized. Although natural hair is far from being a new trend, Viola transcended all of the Beyonce-ish looks that most Black women actresses choose. Big-ups for Viola accepting, and embracing her black beauty. The Academy Awards is her coming-out party, and a new public acceptance to black women and THEIR beauty. Lets see who the next natural celeb will be?
Oh, and before I forget, wasn't she working that green Vera Wang gown? WUURRRRRKK

  3. Is anyone else noticing the anti curl trend? Everyone says Taylor Swift looks so much better and more mature by getting rid of her curls.

    Is Wendy Williams anti natural? A white style expert gave Viola Davis best hair but Wendy shot her down completely. I just started watching Wendy but is this a well known fact that Wendy Williams does not like natural hair?

    I thought she (Viola Davis) looked lovely.

    1. Wendy doesn't like natural hair - she loves synthetic store brought hair. But really can we respect the opinion of hair from a women that stores messages in her wig? Don't get me wrong I like Wendy but she can comment on natural hair, 'cause she loves wigs.

  8. I don't think Natural hair is a trend. I have been natural for 8 years and it's a decision I think many black people take at one point or another in their life. Social media, blogs, and the internet have just publicized it a bit more. Nonetheless she look amazing!!!!!
