Actress Sanaa Lathan’s Mother Has Cute Curls!

• Nov 17, 2012

A few days ago gorgeous actress Sanaa Lathan posted a happy birthday tweet to her mother, accompanied by this photo. It seems that mama Lathan (aka Eleanor McCoy) has some lovely curls! It’s hard to tell if her hair is natural, or if it’s relaxed with some texture to it. Either way the salt and pepper curls are lovely! What do you think ladies?

I love her color and curls! i was just about to give up on not coloring my hair (I’ve been natural for a while’ and then saw this.

She is just as beautiful as Sanaa!!!! Love her grey and how soft and fluffy her hair looks!! I henna and henna/indigo to cover my grey as it’s mostly in spots throughout my head and peppered around my hairline. But, if it starts to go all grey, I’m kind of inspired by this to let it go!

Wow just gorgeous!
I read somewhere that Sanaa is also natural don’t know if thats still true but she has an awesome hair role model to follow in regards to being fabulous whilst getting older!

Regardless if her hair is relaxed or natural they both are beautiful. Looking at her mom it seems that Sanaa is going to ago very gracefully. If it weren’t for the salt and pepper hair I’d think that was her older sister. 😀

Google her. She isn’t a particularly ugly or mean looking witch. I was thinking it was shade at first but maybe that poster is just looking at the hair shape.

Uh huh, I bet if someone said you looked like a witch from a Disney movie, you’d be like oh yeah WE DO HAVE THE SAME HAIR SHAPE!

Anon

Not of she looked like this particular with who just looks like any other character. Now the witch from Snow White would be a different story. Whatever that poster meant, it wasn’t clear that she was being derogatory. The lady doesn’t look like a witch regardless but I feel some people are just on the Internet looking for drama and omgz shots fired moments. Sometimes you just have to shrug your shoulders and move on not everything is meant as some deep insult.

I agree with you Anon some individuals are bored and looking for drama on internet to get into. I usually just ignore it. Attention seekers!! Maybe just saying ‘she reminds me of the character from Tangled’ to satisfy the sensitive ones…BUT CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG 🙂

By the way they both are beautiful! Love Love Love her mom’s hair!

have you actually seen the movie? any of us who have seen tangled knows that Anon’s not being insulting- she’s saying that the woman favors with the character from the cartoon. the witch actually was very attractive (until she was no longer able to draw beauty and youth from rapunzel).

NikNak

Considering the witch is White, I don’t see it. lol. But it reminds me to sign more petitions speaking out against the media villainizing curly haired women, or making them to be the unruly and defiant.

Sanaa and her mom have caucasian influence so the comparison is not that far off

that’s really wack.

goyta

she does, a little. the witch was actually quite pretty before the end set in and she lost her “youth and beauty” but in the beginning, while she was still sucking the lifeline of rapunzel’s hair (lol) she was pretty. Sana’s mom looks like the pretty version of her- it’s the hair, i think, that you must be referring to. yes, very similar in shape.

Eleanor has naturally curly hair as does her sister Brenda McCoy, MD. I know them from Riverton in Harlem. Beauty family inside and out. Eleanor has a heart of gold and a stellar personality. She was in the original Wiz on Broadway with Lena Horne. She’s been in movies as well. Very humble sweet Lady.

I have been a fan of Sanaa’s for a long time. I think she is so underrated. I also think she is beautiful. Now I see where she gets it from. I like her moms hair. Almost a “silver fox”.

Looking at her Mother’s temples,that is not chemicals.She has a natural,soft grade. I like the white and once I am closerto sixty,I wont rinse, but in my forties ‚I dont like the graying.
Nice Mom/Daughter pictures.

wow she looks just like her mom. Beautiful women. Although every time I see Sanaa, I see a woman who is always trying to steal someone else’s man LOL. It seems those are mostly the type of parts she plays and now when I see her I connect her with those parts! I know.…back to reality

They are both beautiful women. Her mother’s curls are fabulous and I love seeing gray curly hair.

She and her mother are very beautiful. Sanaa is very talented and I am a big fan of hers. She also keeps her dating options open and she is an example of beauty, smarts and talent.
