Natural Beauty: 10 Times Regina King Has Slayed The Hair Game

She knows how to bring a scene to life, and speak life with her glorious crown.

When it comes to hair, Regina King is that girl! 

Along with always being down to try a new style, she is also less than shy about experimenting with different hair colors. From bold blondes to brilliant blues and even the grandest of greens, this award-winning star deserves an award for all the times she has hit gold with her mane. 

Here are a few of her eye-catching hairstyles that have inspired us to up our hair game, whether at home or at our favorite salon.

  • In Red Place

    Last November, she rocked bright red short coils for a new campaign with Vaseline. 

  • Tangerine Dreams

    In 2021, she donned an orange gown by Christopher John Rogers that was adorned with a pleated train, as reported by Harper's Bazaar. Although the dress was an instant hit, her honey-blonde braided updo came in first place.

  • Navy Landing

    On the first Monday in May 2021, the Emmy-winning actor attended the Met Gala while giving the classic pinstriped suit a fresh take. She wore a Michael Kors number that featured a full-length dress adorned with a high split, matching cape, and gold shimmering liner. She topped the look off with a glossy, dark blue pixie cut. 

  • Copper Classic

    The Watchman star made a statement at the NAACP Image Awards in 2021 while wearing a custom Oscar de la Renta gown in copper. The dress was a moment in the front and a party in the back. The front half featured a short skirt, while the back was designed with a billowing bow that formed into a train. She styled her braids in a low ponytail, complementing the gown's bold hue.

  • Fire and Ice

    When she graced the cover of The Hollywood Reporter in 2021, it was a win for her and the culture. She rocked a beautiful grand fishtail braid with a side part that featured a mashup of hues, including blonde, red, and orange.

  • A Radiant Call

    Earlier this year, the film queen attended The Piano Lesson on Broadway at the Barrymore Theater. She glowed from within and sported a tiny Afro with red and dark brown tones.
