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 . . .

TiffyTiff Marie Smith

Is she preggers but i like the hair

Juanique O'Dell

Yes she can rock it

Ariel Kindrow

I’m sorry, wth is the natural “look”? Is that what people think us naturals are doing? Just confining to a trend? Its not a look it’s how we were born. Now weave is the “look”. And btw….it looks great on her.

Nonie Oboli

It’s cute…I think she looks pregnant…for sure something different about her face.

Ameenya German

Anybody should be able to pull off the look they were born with… I’m confused..

Shara Jones

Why is that even a question? Do we not know what natural is? Natural is not something you “pull off”… It’s just you without artificial enhancement!

Sharon Williams-Lester

I think a lot of ppl can pull off long natural hair. It’s the short natural hair that not everyone can pull off

Micole Spicer

Black womens hair is natural to begin with before we start puitting all of those chemicals in.

LaTonya Denise Boone

Her face is bigger

Riah Styles

Her face looks like its getting fat and she’s glowing; is she pregnant ?

Samantha Clark

Why not it’s her hair. All the negative talk should not be here. Brainwashed into thinking our hair is not enough. Smh

Ashley Carter

The caption did state it was photoshopped

Sally Camara

What do you mean “pull off the natural look”. This is not a trend, it’s our natural hair.

Uniqua Giddens

Its PHOTOSHOPPED, of course she looks a lil wierd. It’s not her.

Nicole Hamel

I adore beautiful

NayDeand Nickles Purpleprinceluver

Dnt know but her eyebrows are on point very cute

Arelvys Mateo

She’s so pretty.

La Creatia Watkins

How are they basing the person and getting the type of hair. I don’t like photoshopped pictures because they are fake. If anyone wants to be or go natural it’s their prerogative the only thing everyone else needs to stop doing is judging. We were born this way there is nothing wrong with going back.

Jay Noel-Palmer

Of course she can “pull of the natural look” its what she was born with. Either way whether she has her natural hair or a head full of weave shes still a very beautiful woman x

Lawanda Hereford

Neissi Greene

She would look great but thats not her hair texture she has been short tapered natural before n its gorgeous of course

Monique Cox
