Want To See What Celebrities Would Look Like With Natural Hair?

Mary J with natural hairI love going to the movies. Entertainment, popcorn and good company, what’s not to like? A few months ago I found myself in the cinema watching the very funny and talented bunch in Think Like A Man.

Gabby Union was adorable, Meagan Good was fabulous, Kevin Hart was hysterical and even the cameo by Morris Chestnut had me swooning (but I’ve had a girly crush on him forever).

Anyway what struck me in that film was how odd it was that even with the natural hair movement in full swing, Hollywood still insists on remaining relaxed, straightened or weaved up.

I mean of course you have a few celebs who have gone with the natural trend but by and large you have to admit that the African American women gracing our screens night after night tend to keep their locks on the sleek smooth side.

I’m not going to get all political with this post, my views on relaxed hair and the right to choose are already out there. Having said that, without a doubt, natural hair looks like it’s here to stay so I would have expected a few more celebs to be rocking their curls and kinks by now.

You may be surprised to learn that 69% of our readership is either already natural or transitioning (even though this is firmly an equal opportunities hair care website). So I thought it was about time we had fun and got to see what some of these celebrities would look like with natural hair. Who knows, it may nudge some of them into taking the plunge!

Now don’t shoot me when it comes to the choices of hair texture that I chose for each celebrity. It was all very unscientific and there are so many different options that I just went with what I actually wanted to see.


So with a bit of Photoshop magic, let’s begin . . .

I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to help others achieve their dreams too.

saying a black woman with her natural hair doesnt look good already shows the brainwash and ignorance we have to deal with these days

Meagan Good could pull off anything with that pretty face

Tammy Blunt

Ko Ko

Meagan Good can pull off anything

Danielle Oliver

It’s not a look/style for those who have chosen to embrace their natural hair… I don’t plan to go back…. & of course anyone who wants to embrace their REAL hair will look great…

Stephine C Ouch

Beautiful girl

Diana Wilson

Donna Chesser

That’s a bad b£&% € she could pull off anything. Natural pretty

Wincie Collins

She is so beautiful!!! This natural hairstyle makes her cheeks seem more full. She has the rock-a-by baby glow. Not starting rumors but she is glowing. 🙂

Jae McDowell

I think anyone can pull of the ‘natural look’.. so yes.. most def Meagan Good could

Renee Banks

Ofcourse. Any natural woman can. We have chosen to alter our appearances to be un-natural. Nothing wrong with the way God created us.

NiNi Hammond

Um, Meagan Good can pull off any and everything

Monique Brown

Yes Meagan Good is very pretty..

Kyla Harmon

OMG calm down! Stop over analyzing the question if she was trying to imply we don’t look good with natural hair that’s what she would have said. Natural hair is not a gang or black panther party. Stop imagining conflict when there is none. It’s stifling!

Rahesha Dixon

Teresa Simmons-Crumpler

Tamara Pierre

She looks good but why was Meagan photoshoped to be heavier

Alma Ruddock

She wasn’t actually, only the hair was altered.

Ilet Chirimangombe

Gosh, whats with the holier than thou crap. Its just a damn question. Wearing a weave doesnt make her less black. It would be a choice and she can exercise it without being made to feel like a traitor. Daaamn

Maranda Younger

Stop photoshopping natural hair on everyone and accept their choice of how to wear THEIR hair.

Golden Sucha Fcknlady Oneal

Rashida Shidathedancer Robinson

Dante' Nicole Miller

Any Black woman can pull of a natural look…it’s our hair….how can we not pull it off. If you don’t take care of it or don’t give a damn and you don’t have patients, then you will look like Buckweet, but if you do then you’ll be fine. In the beginning it’s ruff because you relearning your hair….

Asha Lewis

There you go, I came here to say the same thing.

Dante' Nicole Miller

Lol thank you Asha Lewis. :). I’m just tired of people saying “I won’t look right doing it, not everyone can go natural.” If you don’t want to go natural because it’s time consuming in your opinion, and you just prefer your hair straight..that’s good for you! But don’t go and say “I can’t do it because you automatically know it won’t “look right on you”. It’s your hair. And it’s healthier for you.

DaSweetest Vincy

Is she Pregnant…. Y she’s so thick…. WHAO

Yes, she can:)

Kendra Bailey

Yes!! Join team natural, Megan !!! We’d love to have you
