Can we talk about Taraji P. Henson's new curly mane?

We're loving the new 'do that the Empire star debuted on Instagram last week.

"Giving a lil #JJ #JanetJackson #VelvetRope," wrote Henson on the post, and we definitely see the resemblance.

The honey highlights give her a youthful glow (as if she needed it) and spiral curls are the perfect hairstyle for the summer.

The spunky new look comes just as we learn that Empire is officially coming back to our small screens come September 23. Leave it up to Cookie to serve on and off-screen.
