Vintage Naturalista: Vanessa Huxtable

By 2 No tags Permalink 0

Vanessa Huxtable (real name Tempestt Bledsoe) had great style. I watch The Cosby Show just to look at her and Lisa Bonet aka Denise Huxtable. I am inspired by their hair and style. I think Vanessa was before her time. Even her curly weaves were on point. They even looked like some of the curly weaves I see ladies rocking today. She also rocked the tapered haircut for her Afro. The tapered haircut is so popular amongst many naturals today. I was even thinking of getting that haircut because it’s so cute and edgy to me. Vanessa was way ahead of the game and definitely a trendsetter. Past fashion trends and hairstyles certainly do repeat, nothing is new under the sun for sure. Vanessa Huxtable is a natural hair icon. *Drops mic*

I don’t think natural hair was a fad for her because  years later after the Cosby Show, she is still rocking her beautiful kinks.

    She seems to remain true to herself. She was taught well by someone in her life that cared about her mental state of mind. Thank you for sharing.
