The recently married actress is no stranger to short hair nor is she afraid to switch it up! She worked with Johnny Wright, whose other clients include Michelle Obama, Tamron Hall, Kerry Washington and more. 

"I've had my hair short for a really long time — it's been nine years. Before I cut it, I had long hair that was everything from permed to straight. I remember when I got into Juilliard — which was just crazy to me, that I would be studying at a school like that — the choice to cut all my hair off was really symbolic for me," Samira shared during her MIMI photoshoot in 2015.

"It felt like I was making the choice to have a new beginning. It's the same really for a lot of African-American girls at that age — you see a trend of them going back to their natural hair — that was definitely what I was chasing at that time. And I didn't really go back [to long hair] because it felt so good."
