She's A Grown Woman: Yara Shahidi Confident Hairstyles

Watch Out World, She’s Grown Now!

Yes, the moment we have all been waiting for, Yara Shahidi who is from the hit series Black-ish is currently starring in a spin-off show called Grown-ish, and it is quickly taking viewers by storm. This growing show is supposed to tell a story on the real-life struggles of moving away from your parents’ house and entering college as a freshman. Although college is not as simple as it first appeared, Zoey loves the challenge of thinking through and evaluating the certain situations she comes across. Just like her character Zoey, who evolves through college, Yara, through her career, she has evolved as a woman with unique hairstyles. Let's check out her grown woman styles!

Two Space Buns

The space bun look is to die for! This hair trend has made its way back into our lives, and a lot of celebrities have not hesitated to sport this look. One thing we can all agree on is that Yara has a spectacular personality. She is a very joyful person, and the hairstyles she rocks shows her individuality. She wears her space buns in many ways, sometimes having braids leading up and crossing into the two buns. My favorite is when she rocks the two puffs in the front of her hair and having the rest of her locks out in the back. Space buns are a go-to style for this spring season approaching. Let us know if you give this look a try soon.

Pineapple bun

A Pineapple bun is a ponytail that is loose, and on the top of your head, your curls are now laying out freely. This look was made initially for preserving your curls when you go to bed. But this go to bed style has become an everyday hairstyle for most. Yara looks flawless in this look. The trick to mastering the pineapple bun is to make sure you have a ponytail holder that is loose, but just tight enough so that you can wrap it around your hair only once. This trick helps make the curls more free-flowing and voluminous. Yara has inspired me to wear this style as of recently. I try to go for the pineapple bun look whenever I'm out with friends, and when they ask where the motivation comes from, I say no other than the fantastic Yara Shahidi!


A FroHawk is a way to describe a standard Mohawk with an Afro-textured hair. You don't necessarily have to shave the sides of your hair down as most people would; you can pin them up yourself or braid them down. Yara is known for wearing her FroHawk in a braided way. Where she'll cornrow the sides, and her Afro is out and free. Occasionally she'll slick the sides up with a hair gel product for a different look. Either way, she slays the Frowhawk hairstyle amazingly. If you love this style, you should give it a try next time you're looking to do something new!

Fishtail Braids

Although this astonishing actress is entirely down for rocking her natural hair, she is not against adding hair extensions or weave to her head now and then. Braids look flawless on this young star, and she wears them with such ease. As we all know this hairstyle is such a great look for the summer and spring, and with those two seasons closely approaching I would take some style tips from Yara. If you feel like having sassy and jaw-dropping cornrows, you should check out these awesome pictures of Yara Shahidi rocking this look.

Natural Curls

If there's a signature look that Yara can pull off, it would be her natural curl pattern. She's in embraced her natural hair for such a long that it's a part of how she wears it now. They say every celebrity has their one go to look, and Yara's kinky do' would have to be hers. Whether it's in an afro, parted down the middle, or parted to the side, her natural curls are what we love most about her.

Grown-ish Styles

Finger Wave Ponytail

Who said people with short hair could only wear finger waves? Yara Shahidi has proved that statement wrong. She was seen wearing this half finger wave and half ponytail look at the 2017 VMA’s. Fans were in awe of how stunning Yara looked in this hairstyle. It was a perfect mixture of elegance and classiness.

Box Braids

Box braids are another protective hairstyle that most people rock during the summer, or to just keep their hair healthy. The reason we all love braids is due to the versatility they offer, and Yara Shahidi has shown us how to rock this hairstyle in a myriad of ways. She wears her braids in ponytails, in different colors, and even in top knot buns. This hairstyle is great for those of you who want to try a different hair color, but are too afraid to dye your natural hair. Yes, I know the labor of getting your braids done for 10 hours straight can be tedious, but hey after its done you have over a month of freedom from not worrying on what style to do next. If Yara has inspired you in any way, then you should give these box braids a try next time you're looking for a versatile hairstyle.

Slick Back Hair

At the age of 17, Yara Shahidi exhibits such undeniable confidence that shines through with every makeup, wardrobe, and hairstyle she accomplishes. Slick back hair is the ultimate edgy look, and not everyone can rock this hairstyle. To attain this look, you must have all of your hair out of your face and pulled to the back of your head. This hairstyle compliments all of Yara's facial features, from her high cheekbones to her fantastic brow arch. All we can say is that the sleek, slicked-back hair, looks excellent on Ms. Shahidi.

Low Side Ponytail

A low ponytail seems like an ordinary look to go for but leave it up to Yara, and she will surely surprise you. One of the ways she wears this hairstyle is in a bubble ponytail. The bubble ponytail is such a quirky and fun hairstyle to try. Yara pulls this look off very elegantly by slicking her hair that is in the front down and placing the ponytail she creates to the side. This hairstyle may be the simplest one for you all to try at home. You can rock the ponytail on short hair, and if you need a little extra length, you can quickly add hair extensions to the back of your hair for a more extended look. Yara makes the simplest hairstyles look beautiful, and I know you all can do the same.

Sade Inspired Hair Look

We can not forget the time where Yara shocked viewers in her look-alike rendition of the late great singer Sade Adu. Not only did she slay the photoshoot that paid homage to Sade, but she had fans doing a double take just to figure out who was who. Such a great job Yara we love it.
