British actress and Beyond The Lights star Gugu Mbatha-Raw is slowly becoming Hollywood’s next “It” girl. In the movie, also starring Nate Parker, Gugu plays Noni, a superstar artist who’s having a hard time dealing with the pressure of fame until she falls in love with Kaz Nicol (Nate), a cop who’s called in for her protection. Lights may be the latest film we’ve seen Gugu in, but before landing a fierce cover for ELLE magazine’s “Women In Hollywood” November issue, she already made her mark as Dido Elizabeth Belle, the first Black aristocrat of the 18th century, in the movie Belle. We can’t wait to see more from the star within the next year, but for now, we can admire her amazing hair looks! Gugu keeps her hair curly, short and cute, and we can’t get enough of it!
Check out some of her great hair moments!
