Tiny Tresses: A Black History Salute To Coretta Scott King

We're nearing the end of another Black History Month, but our celebration of the fiercest women to impact the world is just beginning.

When we think of Coretta Scott King's illustrious legacy, hair is probably the last thing that comes to mind.

Her accomplishments both before and after her husband's death helped shaped the enduring legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, but there's no harm in pointing out that she looked fabulous while doing it!

Subscribe to our daily newsletter for the latest in hair, beauty, style and celebrity news.

Always put together and oozing regality, Coretta is a consistent reminder that "less is more" will always work. 

Watch as HairOnPurpose founder and hairstylist Bukky Ojeifo recreates a kid-friendly version of her iconic coif.
