If you haven’t seen the ‘Uzo Aduba afro‘ yet, then you’re seriously missing out! The Orange is the New Black actress has been wowing fans over Instagram, recently debuting her new, natural hairstyle on the social media platform. But just what is all the fuss about?

Okay, let us start by saying, that we’ve had a major hair crush on Uzo for quite some time now, since she’s been proudly rocking her 4C ‘fro in a number of different ways! And the second we saw her new accessorised afro, we fell even more in love with this lovely lady. So, if you want to see Uzo’s incredible look for yourself, keep on scrolling!

Taking to her Instagram account, Uzo posted the above pic of her new ‘do, wearing a powder blue dress and matching-coloured bobby pins! She also aptly captioned her post with the words: ‘Team Blue. #imwithher’. So, it’s probably a sure thing that the actress will be voting for Hillary Clinton come November 8th.

Since the post went live, many people on social media have been comparing the ‘Uzo Aduba afro’ to the cover image of Solange’s latest album ‘A Seat At The Table‘ – and we can kind of see the resemblance. But regardless of whether the hairstyle is a tribute to the other Knowles sister, or a just a coincidental replica, all we know is, that it’s very different from the look she dons as Crazy Eyes!

Editor’s tip: Do you have type 4 coarse hair like Uzo’s? Then don’t forget to take care of your natural tresses with the help of the of a leave-in conditioner. We especially love the Tresemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mistfor an on-the-go moisture boost!
