KƆɪLI KRUSH: Teyonah Parris

Hi there koilies,

We are super excited to be starting a new series on the blog today, looking at some of our natural hair role models. Some may be household names to you and others may be new koilies on the block but one thing they all have in common is hair that slays and makes us swoon. Whether they are rocking updo's or wash and go's, these girls just keep serving us daily hair inspo.  We hope you enjoy our koili krushes as much as we do and please feel free to make suggestions on who you would like us to feature in the future :)

We kick things off with Teyonah Parris, the beautiful ever-elegant Mad Men, Dear White People and Chi-Raq actress. Although I have never been a fan or follower of award shows, whether it be the Oscars, Emmy's, Tony's or Grammy's, I certainly sat up when Teyonah's pampadour up-do from the 2013 Actor's Guild flooded my facebook page.  Not only was she one of the few black actresses at the awards, she was one of the only (if not only) ones to rock their natural hair in its full glorious state. And so began my love affair with the actress and my tuning into award shows just to see what she would bring on the day. And disappoint, she has never ever.

With peace, love and perfect updo's 
Team Koili
