Watching Crazy Eyes in her iconic bantu knots on Orange is the New Black, it’s easy to overlook the fact that there’s a lot of hair on Uzo Aduba’s head. And since the actress typically wears weaves or wigs on the red carpet, we haven’t gotten much of a chance to bask in the glory that is her mane, until recently.
The photo the star posted on Instagram last night in support of Hillary Clinton solidified Uzo’s place in our book as our newest hair crush. Not only do we love the classic shape of her ‘fro with its smooth middle part, it’s the blue bobby pins that totally set the look off, providing just the right amount of detail to make both a hair and political statement at the same time. Although when is Black hair never political?
Just last month, Uzo stunned us with her voluminous ‘fro for the first time on the ‘gram, prompting us to take a look back at the Nigerian beauty’s best natural hair moments thus far. Be prepared to be inspired and let your own mane come out to play.
