In honor of Black History Month, we've recreated the hairstyles of trailblazing women, both past and present.
We're nearing the end of another Black History Month, but our celebration of the fiercest women to impact the world is just beginning.
ESSENCE's 'Black Women in Hollywood' honoree Issa Rae isn't just a renowned actress, writer and producer. She's also our Tinseltown hair crush. Over the past year, she's worn a host of breathtaking looks, but her rope twist updo at this year's Golden Globe Awards is simply another level of slayage.
Watch as HairOnPurpose founder and hairstylist Bukky Ojeifo recreates a kid-friendly version of this iconic look, created by Issa's go-to guru, Felicia Leatherwood.
