To me, the most striking feature of actress Tracee Ellis Ross is her full head of natural, wavy hair. It’s reminiscent of a certain pop culture icon, isn’t it? Someone who rose to fame through Motown Records in the 1960s, right? What’s her name? Oh yeah…Diana Ross!
Well, if you didn’t know by now, now you know that Tracee Ross is Diana Ross’s daughter. No wonder her hair is so striking, making her the hair crush of women around the world.
Having less hair confidence in the past, Tracee looked up to her mother, who is a true trendsetter on so many different levels, including hair style. In an interview with PEOPLE Magazine, Tracee let it all “hang out”.
“My mom was a natural texture person and it was always the bigger the better. She loves my hair big and out and she always has,” the Black-ish star told the magazine. ”
“Even though I grew up with the image of my mother wearing her hair that way, I hadn’t really seen it elsewhere, so it still has taken courage to wear my hair natural and not feel the pressure to straighten it.” Tracee recalls, “I remember going through a phase where I even put beer in my hair, because I was told that would make it smooth and curly.” Now, the fear of wearing her hair out is nonexistent.
Here is what Tracee does to keep her hair big, bold and beautiful.
