Issa Rae has quickly become the queen of switching up her natural ‘do. Both on screen and off, the actress has given naturals a wealth of styles to choose from, routinely switching from her signature TWA with a few accent braids to beautifully crafted updos and wild curls.

Issa’s hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood is to thank for these masterpieces we’re sure many Insecure fans have tried to replicate. And as we begin the mourning process for the end of season 2 this Sunday, here’s a look back at 12 of Issa’s best hair moments over the past year.
