Taraji P. Henson Has Blonde Hair! See Her New Look


Taraji P. Henson is having more fun with her hair than anyone else in Hollywood. (Well, her and Kelly Ripa!) The Empire actress changed up her look again (remember this purple tressformation?), debuting a blonde curly style with dark exposed roots on Friday. And she kind of reminds us of a kickass ’80s rockstar.

“Felt like a change……..AGAIN 💋💋💋,” the star captioned her latest hair change reveal (above) on Instagram. We wonder if this band-hair moment represents a new look we’ll see on Cookie Lyon during Season 2 of Empire, or if it’s just another chapter in her summer 2015 hair diary.

In June, the actress, 44, experimented with a purple hair color, and her stylist Marcia Hamilton told PEOPLE that she loves to change things up all the time.

“She’s actually an undercover beautician, and I just love that about her because she gets it. Knowing Taraji, she will be moving into a different look soon, so I’m excited for the next challenge,” Hamilton shared.

What do you think of Henson’s latest look? Should she keep it for the rest of the summer? Sound off below.
