Taraji P. Henson Changes Her Hair Again — This Time She's Rocking A Lion Lyon-Inspired Mane!

| Filed under: HairstylesTaraji P. HensonInstagram

Everything Taraji P. Henson ever does is flawless.

We swear there's nothing this lovely lady can't pull off!

Earlier this month, Taraji P. Henson took to Instagram to reveal she was rocking purple and silver strands — which were, sadly, only a wig — but now she's switching things up once again!

The Empire star used the photo-sharing site to post this pic (above) of her new Beyoncé-esque 'do, explaining in the caption that she just can't seem to make up her mind:

"Felt like a change……..AGAIN 💋💋💋"

Well, whether this is another temporary transition or this look is here to stay, we just have to say Taraji looks FIERCE!

And, that choker totally helps with heaping on the hotness!

We're pretty sure these luscious locks would get Cookie Lyon's stamp of approval!

This is the first time two African American women have been simultaneously nominated for lead actress in a drama series!

And if that comes as a shock, sit the eff down! Because if either of the talented ladies wins, it will be the first time EVER a black actress has won in the category!

Considering the dearth of minorities represented in 2015's Oscar noms, this is a big step for the small screen!

Taraji P. Henson is caught sleeping on set!

Ah! If we were Jussie Smollett, we wouldn't mess with Cookie!

Or Taraji P. Henson, apparently!

The Empire star caught his co-star sleeping on set last week, and posted the video to Instagram on Thursday to congratulate her on the Emmys nom!

He captioned it:

"Congrats to one of the greatest leading ladies of all time…@tarajiphenson on your #Emmynomination. You are the most elegant, classy, inspiring artist and I love you more than words. This ones for you. ❤️ #Empire@empirefox P.S. this is last week when#OtisTheForeheadPimple was still chillin with me…"

But we don't think she'll be too happy to know Jussie posted the clip, especially considering her not-so-thrilled but still hilarious reaction to finding out he taped her!

Didn't he learn when Lee Daniels caught her twerking?? LOLz!

Taraji kills us! Catch the whole video (below)!

You Guys! Taraji P. Henson Is Rocking Some Purple And Silver And It's AMAZING!

| Filed under: HairstylesTaraji P. HensonInstagram

Taraji P. Henson could literally pull off any look ever.

We swear everything this woman touches turns to purple gold!

Taraji P. Henson can do no wrong, and neither can her hair! On Tuesday, Pravana — a hair color company — posted this pic (above) of the queen herself rocking perfectly perfect locks, courtesy of their aptly-named Vivids line.

The purple and silver combination was the result of masterful work by hairstylist Marcia Hamilton. And while we would love it as a permanent look, this is just a wig.

The 44-year-old looks FLAWLESS with such fierce locks. Not to mention she totally looks like she could party it up with Kesha, who's known to rock bright-colors in her hair, as well!

Seriously though, Taraji just took the ombre trend and raised the bar SO much higher!
