Teyonah+Parris+19th+Annual+Screen+Actors+Guild+X_-mNCf-fOMl

*Update*
We just learned that stylist Felicia Leatherwood is behind Teyonah’s goreous look! Felicia is no stranger to BGLH. Back in 2011 we featured a series of gorgeous bridal updos she created.

Wow. Rarely do we see natural hair repped this well on the red carpet! Mad Men Actress Teyonah Parris rocked a gorgeous pompadour updo for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She plays Dawn Chambers on Mad Men, the first black person to be hired at Don Draper’s firm. She wears a wig for the role, that really hides all the gorgeousness underneath. Check out the photos below, ladies and let us know what you think. We definitely have a new favorite natural celeb on our radar! All photos courtesy of Zimbio.com

Absolutely gorgeous!!

Raquel

Beautiful hair, makeup and dress! She made excellent choices for this event! Her photos and image should be everywhere. I will return to watching Mad Men again.

Eloisa

Gorgeous mama! Show these black celebs how it’s done.

Marie

Say it again! U do NOT have to wear weave to look nice and this shows it! I am tired of Beyonce’s influence……..its about time naturals had someone to look up to.

I understand as part of her job Teyonnah has to wear protective styles with waves and wigs but she CHOSE to represent with a natural style on the red carpet. ๐Ÿ™‚

If more celebs rocked this the weave industry would decline just like relaxer sales…..

Eloisa

Yes! I dream of a time where the wigs, weaves and relaxer industry is no longer supported by black women.

shelikes

not a fan of the hair; to me hair should soften the look; pompadours remind me of buzz cuts military men get. her lips and eyes are sooooo pretty and her skin color (and her curves) make that dress beautiful.

Thegoodbadugly

Elegant from head to toe!!! When will we get to read about her haircare regimen on BGLH?

J2daoO

I found an interviw with Teyonah on this site:

http://www.cfyh.co.uk/2012/05/22/hairspiration-interview-teyonah-parris/

niksmit

Thanks! That was a good read. I’m sure a lot of BGLH readers can relate to her stories.

Shon

Such a gorgeous and classy look!

linnie

She is absolutely smokin’!!! And why didn’t I see her included in all those “best dressed” shows about the SAGS???

stephanieb

Amen Linnie, Ya’ll know if you ain’t light-skinned, hungry-looking, and rockin’ the blond weave, Hollyweird ain’t paying any attention to you if you’re a black woman. It’s unfortunate because Teyonah is one of the best dressed ones that I saw that night, and I love her hair!

Kelly

Yeah, it seems like unless you’re Halle Berry or Beyonce the fashion critics kind of ignore Black female talent.

J2daoO

Yep unless its blond or looks like THEIR beauty standard they are afraid of it because how FIERCE and confident it looks.

Imagine if every naturilsta woman would rock their hair with such authority and pride? I am sure they would pass a law against it….. LOL

Michelle Spice

This sistah is real, she does not look like a bush wacker fresh from the wild or the unknown!

Very elegant and classy! This is the Afrikan way…

Michelle

It makes her look like royalty. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lulu

Viola Davis rocked her TWA too (http://glamazonsblog.com/2013/01/kerry-washington-rodarte-white-gown-2013-sag-awards/)
Black is so beautiful!!!!

Lulu

Oops here is the pic:comment image

shelikes

she looks pretty

Michelle Spice

This is beautiful! She is stunning and so beautiful… She truly rocks and is very sexy…

Natural hair is always here but it is ashame that Afrikan women are afraid of their natural beauty and what Yahweh gave them…

Look how great this sistah looks with her natural hair.

Marilyn

She looks like a queen!!! Gorgeous!

Beya

LOVE it! Hope to see more of her in other shows and movies, and I definitely hope to see more awesome hairdo’s like this!!! And can we please get a tutorial?! That hair is hot.com and we NEED it! She rocked the mess out of that gown…. everything about this woman stands for regal, glamorous and straight up FABULOUSNESS!!!! She is giving us ALL life!!! Werk girl, werk!

cookie

stunning beauty, I actually love her hair WOW!!!!

Nikki

Stunning from head to toe!!! The hair and the dress are so fierce!

TEE

I didn’t know her before but now I know!! She stood out for me in the sea of starlets. I cannot get over how gorgeous she looks from head to toe…and look at that confident smile!!

Ysatis

God I hate the Pompadour style. I also hate it on January Jones. It’s just not flattering at all.

areille

I’m the same way. I hate pompadours I don’t think they flatter anyone. It’s just not my style. I’ve never seen this actress before, she’s very pretty though.

eve-audrey

her hair, her face, her dress… love!

Maggie

She SLAYEDDDD!

cris

i’m not an updo, pompadour, fauxhawk, type of gal but this right here.. this is beautiful!

honeybrown1976

That hair! That dress!! That look is to die for.

Jo

Amazing!Natural hair is here to STAY!

kay

NiLi

She looks beautiful. So glad this happened in my lifetime. Permed ladies, move out of the way!

Eloisa

The wigged and weaved up women can move out the way as well! Black women need to start rockin their own non-chemically altered hair.

Toya

Sophisticated, classy, and oh so FLY!

merry

bglh should find out who did her hair and do an interview or something – tutorial, etc.

or, set something up with Teyonnah if you can.

Amma Mama

Celebrity Hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood did it.
This is a regal look!

merry

slay me. right. now.
