Vintage Naturalista: Vanessa Huxtable

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.
