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. :)

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. :)

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

the hair styl­ist is or should I say genius is Feli­cia Leather­wood
http://www.lovingyourhairwithnaturalcare.com/

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.

THIS PICTURE THO…SHE LOOKS SO REGAL AND BEAUTIFUL and she stands out in a GOOD WAY. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an updo like this on the red car­pet of a hol­ly­wood event. Yes girl yes! *flat­li­nes*

cynroxon

She looks AMAZING!!! I love how our hair can cre­ate some seri­ous­ly fierce looks. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less!
