Danai Gurira is one hell of an actress. Her diverse resume includes roles in films like The Visitor, Ghost Town, The Walking Dead, Avengers: Endgame, and of course, Black Panther. Through her talent on the big screen, we’ve been able to fall in love with her edgy wardrobe and fun hairstyles. 

Danai has been supplying us with great hair inspiration for years! The actress is known to let her kinks and curls hang out, unapologetically. Her hairstylist uses red carpet events as a canvas to sculpt and create some of the most gorgeous styles.  In a climate where natural hair is being questioned for professionalism, it is important for hair textures like Danai’s to be seen in mainstream media.

Today, February 14th (Valentine’s Day), is Danai’s 42nd birthday. To celebrate, we’re highlighting 10 of her most beautiful hairstyles on the red carpet.
