This week’s hair crush is rising newcomer Zazie Beetz. She won us over on FX’s new series Atlanta while first waking up in a headwrap, then taking it off to reveal the all-too familiar naturalista ritual of the bantu takedown as she gets ready for the day. (A special thank you to Donald Glover for that primetime moment.)
Even better, Zazie’s hair doesn’t look like one of those tutorials where you’ve sat for hours mixing concoctions for a perfect coil. It’s the knot out that we’ve all experienced after dry twisting late at night and waking up all too soon, so there’s no overall defined pattern. Her afro is everything that we’re told is wrong and EVERYTHING that we know is right about natural hair. It’s wild, it’s free and it’s beautiful. And it is #blackhairmagic.
