Janet JacksonJanet Jackson has had a lasting effect on pop culture in many ways, especially with her hair. She gives us some much needed 80s inspiration. Her famous ‘poetic justice’ braids are still worn by the likes of Keke Palmer. When she wasn't giving us braid goals, Janet was showing off her natural curls with these ‘Velvet rope’ pom-poms.
These cute space buns were on every girl's to-do list.

Ayanda’s Mdluli MVPAyanda never shies away from bold fros and bright hair colour. It’s safe to say that this DJ’s hair always packs a punch. While paving her way as a radio and club DJ, she also mastered the art of pulling off the most daring of reds. In fact, her hair is so larger-than-life, it deserves its own TV slot.
She's known for big, bold natural hair that she shows off in a range of reds.

Renate StuurmanWith her deep dimples and gorgeous big hair, big and small screen actress Renate Stuurman is hard to miss. She’s always given us fro goals regardless of the TV or movie role she was in. Traditionally she’s coloured her hair in browns and blacks. Occasionally she's surprised us with red which looked amazing against her caramel-coloured skin. She pulled off this bold colour when she performed at a production called Junkyard Joyland years ago and it was on fire.
