Lights, camera, action! Celebrities usually have the advantage of teams of professionals to help them look their best at all times. Here are 15 of our favorite celebrity hair crushes who inspire us every time they are in the spotlight.

Tracee Ellis Ross


Tracee does a great job of sporting her natural curls in every form. She is not afraid to show us her hair when it is free and uncombed or expertly styled into buns, ponytails, or braids. Tracee is the queen of versatility and these waist length unraveled cornrows are a whole mood.


Beyonce without a doubt slays every style from flowly blonde wigs to lemonade braids, these finger waves are giving us so much life.


Ciara is another hair chameleon. Whether she is sporting almost floor-length straight hair or she decides to “level up” with a short pixie cut, she reminds us to be bold while having fun with our hair. These flawless ombre goddess faux locs are a great protective style for an effortless summer style.

Kelly Rowland

Kelly has come a long way since her Destiny’s Child days. Now we see her embracing her natural texture and rocking some beautiful voluminous styles, not to mention these beautiful locs.

Issa Rae

We’ve watched Issa’s hair evolution from The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl  to two seasons of HBO’s Insecure. She has sported twists, braids, waves, curls, and she can really do no wrong! Catch a closer back view here courtesy of her fab stylist, Felicia Leatherwood.

Amanda Seales

Another Insecure regular, Amanda loves to show us her hair process. She has shown us bedhead freshness to her innovative braids and styles that keep us on our toes.

Elaine Welteroth

Elaine’s natural curls are beautiful and she never fails to have them in tip-top shape. Elaine is also daring in her exploration of twists and braids to accessorize her curly looks.

Bozoma Saint John

Known for her bold, colorful, fun style, we can always count on Bozoma for hair that defies gravity and makes a beautiful entrance in every room she enters.

Yara Shahidi

Yara has rocked fun hairstyles on Blackish and now on her spin-off, Grownish. Her hairstyle changes make us wish that we had as much style and flavor in our college days!

Chloe + Halle

Also Grownish stars, Chloe and Halle have always worn their long locs in artistic styles. Whether they wear them wavy, accessorize with jewelry, or pin their long locs into bangs, these sisters never fail to keep their styles innovative.


Remember her pixie cut? What about her red phase? Rihanna even wore faux locs for a movie role. Rihanna can do no wrong, and these days, she has been rocking loose carefree waves.


Zendaya is also another style maven who can easily change her look. We love her new auburn color!

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita is one to watch because she loves to play with her hairstyles. She tends to keep her cut short, but her looks always remind us that a short style is far from limiting.
