Each March, we observe Women’s History Month to celebrate the accomplishments of women throughout history and present-day. For 2017 alone, we’ve seen so many #lit lady moments such as Viola Davis’s history-making award season run and actress Ruth Negga’s beautifully shot Vogue cover. So, we decided to team up with a few of our favorite bloggers to pay homage to iconic women in beauty by recreating their signature hairstyles.
Michelle Thames (@naturalista86) chose Tracee Ellis Ross. The actress, known for her signature head full of jet black ringlets, made her mark on history this year when she snagged a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV comedy for her role as Bow in ABC’s Black-ish. Tracee is the first black woman to win a Globe in 33 years!
On why Tracee is a beauty icon, Michelle says, “she has always challenged society's beauty standards. She has always felt that women should not have to do certain things to make ourselves feel beautiful. She feels that we are beautiful naturally and that we can exist unapologetically despite what society says.”
