Once again, Taraji P. Henson rocks a hairstyle we’re completely in love with. Fresh off a whirlwind awards season and another season of Empire, the talented actress was recently spotted out and about in a golden brown high fade with tapered sides.

Taraji initially debuted the short cut over Memorial Day weekend, and it looks like the style is sticking. Her badass cut may be inspired by her character in the upcoming film Proud Mary, set for a 2018 release.

We’re used to seeing loose tresses with varying lengths and colors for the star, but this short cut is her most daring to date. 

What makes it even more stunning is how effortlessly cool she makes it, pairing the fresh cut with bold pink shades and a colorful oversized bag.

As things heat up this summer, we’re sure more stars like Taraji will be opting to ditch their heavy hair in favor of tapered cuts and fades. See the biggest A-list transformations of 2017 (so far) here.

[BLANK_AUDIO] All right, solve the equation. Bomb movie about black girl magic plus a stellar performance by Taraji P Henson should equal an Oscar nom, right?

That was gonna be my point. I mean the movie is Epic. It's a great movie. I don't think that that particular role was the role to win. Right. But I would have just enjoyed seeing another speech. Because she give you your life when you get that speech. You be like, you feel that, and your spirits are going two, three more days after you hear that. You know what I mean? That's what I wanna do. Before. Personal reasons. [UNKNOWN] definitely a [UNKNOWN] crush over here. You got a definite crush. Kayla, what are the folks saying about the Oscar noms on Facebook? Hey y'all.
