A couple of weeks ago, Sanaa Lathan had the Internet on fire when she debuted a new bald look. The actress shaved off all of her hair for her upcoming lead role in the Netflix adaptation of Nappily Ever After, but the new fade is just one of many bold looks the 46 year old has pulled off since stepping into the spotlight.
In honor of her birthday today, we take a look back at some of the star’s most memorable hair moments, from straight strands, to coils and curls, and even the few times she wore twists on and off screen. Let us know which looks you love most.
