Tiny Tresses: Janet Jackson's 'Control' Curls

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.

Janet Jackson's career spans nearly four decades, but the '80s were an especially significant time for the performer, who took ownership of her career and image. With the release of her classic album Control, Janet (Miss Jackson if you're nasty) also adopted a more grown up style, that included the signature curls she still wears today. 

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