Dynamic Diva: Taraji.P Henson


At first glance, Taraji P. Henson is a Hollywood elite, dripping in red carpet charm and black girl magic. But what many don’t know, is that this real life diva is a fighter and go-getter who never let failure stop her from going after her dreams.

At the very start of her career Henson was a young single mother with just $700 in her bank account. After playing a series of supporting roles in shows like Smart Guy (2001) and Sister Sister (1994), Henson’s break seemed to finally arrive when she landed an Oscar nomination for her role as Queenie in the Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008).

Now at the pinnacle of her career, Henson is a force to be reckoned with, showing up in pivotal roles like Cookie Lyon in Empire (2015) and Katherine Johnson in Hidden Figures (2017). We celebrate this dynamic actress for her flawless style and her resilience. Taraji. P Henson proves to all of us that you can chase your dreams -even if you’re wearing 6 inch heels.

Fierce side part

We adore Taraji’s side part with soft tumbling curls. The word ‘slay’ does not do this look justice.

Fashion Mastermind


When you look the way Taraji looks you can pretty much do anything and get away with it. Here this fearless diva rocks a slightly shaved side with short cropped bob.

Fiery Red Faux Hawk


Fiery red and ultra curly. This look gives us the best of both worlds – intense colour and carefree natural curls.

Sweet n’ Short



Here Taraji goes for a super chic bob with a centre split. We love how sophisticated yet fun this look is.

Gold Streak


The colour is on point for this swept-up do. Peeps of gold streaks are a nice touch to the overall look.

Make Waves


Short or long – waves are always a good idea. They add an instant romantic feel to any hairstyle. Taraji!
