Extensions Not Needed

19 Oct

TarajiTaraji P. Henson aka Queen Cookie recently donned her natural cornrowed hair in a photo shoot for CR Fashion Book. Apparently, Henson’s scarf came off while she was changing and photographer Bruce Weber loved the intricate cornrows that lay beneath. Henson was hesitant at first, afraid of being so visibly vulnerable (minus her weave). According to Henson, “…part of me was like, No, no, no, NO! This is the hair no one is supposed to see. This is like behind-closed doors hair. I feel naked.” But Henson pushed through her fears and the results are stunning. A reminder that black women are beautiful in all forms.

Check out the short film starring, Henson, musician Jon Batiste, Jussie Smollett, NBA player Michael Beasley, and model Henry Watkins.
