*Update*
We just learned that stylist Felicia Leatherwood is behind Teyonah’s goreous look! Felicia is no stranger to BGLH. Back in 2011 we featured a series of gorgeous bridal updos she created.

Wow. Rarely do we see natural hair repped this well on the red carpet! Mad Men Actress Teyonah Parris rocked a gorgeous pompadour updo for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She plays Dawn Chambers on Mad Men, the first black person to be hired at Don Draper’s firm. She wears a wig for the role, that really hides all the gorgeousness underneath. Check out the photos below, ladies and let us know what you think. We definitely have a new favorite natural celeb on our radar! All photos courtesy of Zimbio.com

THIS PICTURE THO…SHE LOOKS SO REGAL AND BEAUTIFUL and she stands out in a GOOD WAY. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an updo like this on the red carpet of a hollywood event. Yes girl yes! *flatlines*

bglh should find out who did her hair and do an interview or something — tutorial, etc.

or, set something up with Teyonnah if you can.

She looks beautiful. So glad this happened in my lifetime. Permed ladies, move out of the way!

The wigged and weaved up women can move out the way as well! Black women need to start rockin their own non-chemically altered hair.

God I hate the Pompadour style. I also hate it on January Jones. It’s just not flattering at all.

areille
Guest

I’m the same way. I hate pompadours I don’t think they flatter anyone. It’s just not my style. I’ve never seen this actress before, she’s very pretty though.

This is beautiful! She is stunning and so beautiful… She truly rocks and is very sexy…

Natural hair is always here but it is ashame that Afrikan women are afraid of their natural beauty and what Yahweh gave them…

Look how great this sistah looks with her natural hair.

Viola Davis rocked her TWA too (http://glamazonsblog.com/2013/01/kerry-washington-rodarte-white-gown-2013-sag-awards/)

She is absolutely smokin’!!! And why didn’t I see her included in all those “best dressed” shows about the SAGS???

Kelly

Yeah, it seems like unless you’re Halle Berry or Beyonce the fashion critics kind of ignore Black female talent.

J2daoO
Guest
J2daoO

Yep unless its blond or looks like THEIR beauty standard they are afraid of it because how FIERCE and confident it looks.

Imagine if every naturilsta woman would rock their hair with such authority and pride? I am sure they would pass a law against it.…. LOL

stephanieb
Guest

Amen Linnie, Ya’ll know if you ain’t light-skinned, hungry-looking, and rockin’ the blond weave, Hollyweird ain’t paying any attention to you if you’re a black woman. It’s unfortunate because Teyonah is one of the best dressed ones that I saw that night, and I love her hair!

Elegant from head to toe!!! When will we get to read about her haircare regimen on BGLH?

I found an interviw with Teyonah on this site:

Thanks! That was a good read. I’m sure a lot of BGLH readers can relate to her stories.

Guest

not a fan of the hair; to me hair should soften the look; pompadours remind me of buzz cuts military men get. her lips and eyes are sooooo pretty and her skin color (and her curves) make that dress beautiful.

Eloisa
Guest

Gorgeous mama! Show these black celebs how it’s done.

Marie
Guest

Say it again! U do NOT have to wear weave to look nice and this shows it! I am tired of Beyonce’s influence.….…its about time naturals had someone to look up to.

I understand as part of her job Teyonnah has to wear protective styles with waves and wigs but she CHOSE to represent with a natural style on the red carpet. 🙂

If more celebs rocked this the weave industry would decline just like relaxer sales.….

Eloisa
Guest
Eloisa

Yes! I dream of a time where the wigs, weaves and relaxer industry is no longer supported by black women.

Raquel

Beautiful hair, makeup and dress! She made excellent choices for this event! Her photos and image should be everywhere. I will return to watching Mad Men again.

A pure version of loveliness! And who said natural hair can’t be posh, elegant and sophisicated! Get it Mr. Parris, I hope other black woman stars follow suit in choosing to go natural or show their natural hair more.

Valentina Shepard

Teyonah looks absolutely amazing. I love her beautiful natural hair, the updo is flawless and so is her makeup. That purple gown exuded excellence.!!!

First of all her name Teyonnah Parris is absolutely gorgeous that matches her overall appearance beautiful and stunning.The hair is the finale which is awesome it stole the show, natural is the way to go.

Although I don’t like the hairstyle and dress together, I love the beauty and elegance she exudes! There is nothing like an updo on natural hair. Versatility is the name of the game — I would like to see more of her.

Take a note all the celebs who think they’re representing natural hair by uploading a pic on twitter of their supposedly natural hair. This is how you do it, no need for a caption of ‘no perm’ it is plain for all to see in this gorgeous woman.

This is so beautiful and extremely regal in a way. If this is done more often, women will see how truly versatile our natural hair is. You can pin it up elegantly for any special occasion, wear it fro’d out, curly or blown out.…that my friends is beautiful! 🙂
