Issa Rae – Natural Hair Inspo!

By now you know or at least heard of Issa Rae… Natural Hair Bae (You see what I did there hahaha) Her hit show insecure which I & so many others find to be freaking hilarious & so relatable; at least according to social media because we don’t do the traditional TV critics over hurrr! But I’m not here to talk about the show even though it really is a great one & you should totes check it out if you haven’t.

Now as the title suggest I want to highlight Issa’s effortless slayage with her constant changing natural hairstyles! She’s quite experimental with her hair, which I so love because her hairstyles are quite dope & not super intricate where it looks like it has to be done by a professional you know? Like her hairstyles look do-able at home, by yourself, or (by your sister if you’re like me) But enough of my blabbing let me show you what I mean:

Whether Issa is rocking her natural fro, a hair cut,  her elegant up-dos with kinky extensions or just a flat twist, I love each & every style; so much so that I’ve been inspired to do more with my own natural hair! As of right now I tend to just wash my hair, deep condition, play with my afro in the house & then do braids or crochet (before crochet almost turned me bald headed ====> Here’s the link for that). I mean don’t get me wrong, when I take my hair out I wear my bun for a day or two but then I’d wash it & start the cycle I just mentioned above all over again; so in essence, I’ve actually never worn my own hair out for more than a couple of days. But, watching Issa Rae slaying her ever changing natural hairstyles on the red carpet, on her show, during interviews & pretty much every where else has really inspired me to do the same!

 

Hahahaaha here is a quick interview where Issa talks about her hair:

I swear she reminds me sooo much of my sister it’s scary. They’re both hilarious & awkward as hell!

So, what’s your take on Issa Rae? Her hairstyles? Insecure? Let me know below xx

  1. I remember when I watched Awkward Black Girl in 2012. She’s definitely come a long way since her Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl days. Her hair gives me so much inspo. Felicia Leatherwood creates some magic and I’m loving Season 2 of Insecure atm!!

    • She’s come such a long way from ABG rite?! Funny enough I’m still watching the web series now & making the connection with some of the stuff she has on there with insecure; like the episode of her being super awkward at parties where she didn’t know anyone? hahaha

      But yes I had to blog about her hair I was just too inspired!

  2. I never even thought about it, but she really is a walking billboard/inspiration for why we should and can be natural! One of my fav scenes on that show is when a guy showed up and asked her what was up with her hair and then asked her to change it back to what it was on her profile…so rude and so true to form for how men (sometimes) perceive our natural states.
