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 . . .

  • LOL ya’ll the picture is photoshopped

  • I love it! Do your thing Mary

  • Beautiful

  • She is still beautiful. ….just use to seeing her with the honey blonde look

  • Cute.

  • Verry beautiful…..!!!

  • It’s photoshopped ladies!!

  • Lmao we know

  • Photoshop but nice 🙂

  • Oh I did know but I’m glad but didnt care for it much

  • Looks older but good

  • Mary J has to have some color regardless natural or relaxed it brighten her up

  • Beautiful!

  • Blondes are way more fun!!! Not Mary at all!!! I don’t like it all all!!! Yuck….

  • No

  • Really wish she would get rid of that blonde hair.

  • ii love it 🙂

  • Maybe she would be not that style.

  • Her make-up looks good. Straighten the hair by pressing or flat iron.

  • Nice

  • No sorry! Thank goodness this is not real! Not everybody look good natural! Just sayin

  • No she wouldn’t. Just because not all of us choose to wear it in the nappy state don’t mean it’s not natural but that’s not cute and it don’t look good on everybody

    • Dawn

      Nappy is u moisturised hair and therefore unkempt, which does not look attractive. Take Solange for example…

  • Nah! I don’t like this style on her

  • love it get it Mary

  • they look awesome with natural hair

  • Not really!

  • She’s a really pretty woman

  • Yes it is photoshopped. MJ has a relaxer.

  • Photoshopped or not, she looks beautiful.

  • not her hair dont look good

  • How can natural hair not be for everyone if that’s the hair God gave them? Although this is photoshopped I personally think it looks great. Maybe a different hair style wud do but that’s it.

  • What is the sudden focus about hair texture, etc? First we are put against eachother behind skin shades now its our hair? If your hair grew from your head, you are natural. And if it didnt, you are STILL beautiful and no blacker and no prouder that the next sista. Alot of y’all are putting too much on this. No wonder so many women overdo themselves and end up looking silly. Embrace your sister and stop falling for all of these ploys to keep us AT eachother. Hair is hair.

  • Not a good look on her at all

  • I think she looks great!!!Anything is better than a weave!!!!

  • natural wit fake lashes

  • Yuck, ew, and NO! Not for her..

  • dividing isnt good you right about that and it shouldnt be about that but more about consciousness
    rock your REAL hair because thats how JAH created you and to show we are proud of what we are for self-esteem is sooo important especially for our young princesses so how else can you show them other than being a role model and being confident about your BLACK APPEARANCE what includes your hair
    if we can set that standard then it shouldnt matter if we wear our hair natural straigt or w.e but until then its important to strengthen our QUEENS
    we need to come back to being kings and queens and not brainwashed babylonians!!
