The 72nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place virtually for the first time on Sunday night—sans the typical red carpet. Nonetheless, actress Yvonne Orji showed up in full glam and with must-see hair.

The Insecure star, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, made a statement with her bold buzz cut.

Orji, however, left the clenched and raised fist that Mickey West-Potts etched into the side of her crown up for interpretation. 

The 36-year-old posted a photo of the engraving—a symbol of protest and solidarity—on Instagram with the caption, “NUFF SAID.” And the powerful imagery certainly speaks for itself: Black Lives Matter.

Even amid unprecedented times, our hair remains a form of political expression.
