Tiffany Haddish is a figure of beauty in braids in her most recent cover story.
In a new feature for Byrdie‘s latest Digital Issue, the beloved comedienne and actress rocked three hairstyles that slay.
Haddish dons her signature short blonde hair on the cover and shows growth from the shaved head the actress debuted in July 2020.
“Baby, best feeling I ever felt in my whole entire life,” the actress told Byrdie about those first few days with her shaved head. “The most sensations I ever felt. The most alive I ever felt. And then I was jealous of every bald-headed man I’ve ever seen.”
Haddish’s second look was the cover story’s most dramatic. The braided hairdo fell just past the star’s shoulders and was adorned with cowry shells and beads.
Los Angeles-based hairstylist Ray Christopher worked with protective hairstylist Brea Nicole Ervin to achieve the vision for the braid look. Both stylists praised one another for achieving Haddish’s look in posts shared on Instagram.
