All Hail Tessa Thompson. The beauty icon and in-demand actress is on a multi-year winning streak, with Untouchable turns in Emmy favorite Westword and box office hits like Thor: Love and Thunder and Sorry to Bother You.

The Hollywood Darling has made a name for herself on screen…and on the red carpet. No beauty roundup or best-dressed list is complete without a nod to Thompson. She practically dominates the hair space, taking on both Timeless Trends and avant-garde aesthetics. From waist-length braids to glossy bobs and intricate chignons, she’s given us lifetimes of mane inspiration. Read on and see for yourself with a few of our favorite Tessa Thompson hair moments to date.

1. Wavy Bob

Tessa Thompson can pretty much pull off hair at any length. Back in 2017, the actress traded her normally long locks for a shorter cut. The results were stunning.
