Locks, tresses, curls, strands — whatever we call our hair, it’s a mighty part of who we are. Your hairstyle can reflect every side of your personality, whether you’re feeling fun, sexy, sleek, head-turning, statement-making or just plain ready to GET IT DONE. Your hair is a token of your womanhood — and we’re here to support your hair journey every step of the way.
Celebrity Hairstyles We Love
When it comes to finding hair inspo, there’s no better place to look than celebrity style icons. Celebrities have pioneered signature looks and set global trends for as long as they’ve been around. Whether it’s an Audrey Hepburn kinda day, or the night calls on you to channel your inner Beyoncé, looking to the stars can bring a wealth of inspiration, bold ideas and playful experimentation.
Check out these celebrity hairstyles from go-getter goddesses we just can’t get enough of:
Here at TIY, our whole team is inspired by our fearless leader, Andrea Nucete-Elliott. Andrea is a former Miss Universe Italy, pro volleyball star, incredible coach and co-founder/CEO of TIY. When it comes to her own tresses, Andrea loves to keep things versatile and fun. Whether she’s rocking box braids, a sleek high ponytail or a messy bun, you can always #spottheknot of TIY helping her achieve every gorgeous look.
American actress and singer Zendaya (Euphoria, Malcolm and Marie, Dune) can be seen effortlessly switching between sleek, glossy styles, box braids, cornrows — and of course — her incredible signature look of natural curls. The breadth of Zendaya’s style is a wonderful reminder of how we can channel our mood, personality and power with the care we show our hair. While it’s fun to experiment with different styles, we love the way Zendaya always returns to her natural curls, embracing her hair as a fundamental part of who she is.
Jihae Kim, more commonly known by the mononym Jihae, is a South Korean-born actress and rock musician. Since graduating from Emory University with a degree in political science, she started her career as a model, released four albums, launched her own record label and multimedia company, co-created a rock opera and acted in shows like Altered Carbon (Netflix) and Succession (HBO). We love a good multipotentialite. Jihae’s signature styles alternate between gorgeous, long tresses with romantic bangs and her more recent punk-inspired variations on the pixie cut. If we had to sum Jihae’s style up in one word, it would be badass.
Nobody rocks braids like Rihanna. From cornrows to box braids, Rihanna’s styles are iconic. Whether she’s wearing her braids half-up, in a glorious top bun or letting them fly, they look amazing 100% of the time. We love to see it.
Many of us know her as Beth Harmon from The Queen’s Gambit, but that signature red bob from the show was a wig. Anya Taylor-Joy herself has long, mermaid-like blonde hair — and she knows how to use it. Anya alternates between long, loose waves and wearing her locks in a high ponytail or sleek red carpet-worthy updo.
