Hair is a significant part of any black woman’s life and we’re constantly working on our relationship with it. Learning how to take care of your hair, style your hair and, most importantly, love your hair with all its kinks and curls is a struggle, but once you find what works for you you can truly appreciate your beautiful crown. A new wave of black women are turning to their natural hair, and celebrities are also appearing more and more with their beautiful natural hair on the red carpet.

We have rounded up our favourite natural-hair red-carpet moments that are providing positive media representation of black women with natural hair, and providing us with inspiration in the process.
