This time around, the newly cemented Marvel star, gave us another enviable glam look as she hit the Comic-Con Festival in San Diego, California. Parris was all smiles as she strolled on stage for a panel during the day, and rocked a sultry look to evening events with her hair coiffed into a loose curly textured bob.
“This was pretty much letting the world know that [Teyonah] was going to be a Black superhero for Marvel,” Parris’ hairstylist Richard Norman Grant told Madame Noire. “So, it was a huge moment.” It was a moment so big that her glam squad didn’t know the news until right before she left the room for a Comic-Con panel, where Marvel exec Kevin Feige revealed that Teyonah Parris would be starring as Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel in the new series WandaVision.
“They kept it very secret, and she told us right before she went downstairs to the panel,” Grant continued. “That was super overwhelming. And I was like, this is huge. It was very cool.”
Although Norman styled Parris’ day for Comic-Con, it was the perfect look for the announcement too. “Her character has similar hair,” he continued. “It’s pretty much like an afrocentric natural style. So, it coordinated with her actual character and adventures.”
The Los Angeles-based celebrity hairstylist, who has worked with the likes of Eve, Kim Fields, and Tamala Jones, gave us the lowdown on how he styled Parris’s hair and the products he used to slay it.
