Forget Friday: Thursday is most definitely our favorite day of the week, thanks to the popularity of Instagram’s #tbt (Throwback Thursday) hashtag series. From elementary school photos to vintage wedding pics, today’s most in-demand designers, models and editors have been regularly giving us a peek into their most awkward (and most inspiring!) style phases. Obsessed, we asked some of our favorites to share not only the stories surrounding their most-liked images—but also a few never-before-seen pics from their (and their parents’) archives.
In the latest installment, we met up with All The Pretty Birds blogger and Lucky contributor Tamu McPherson, and asked her to share the stories behind all her past hairstyles. She shared stories of her mom doing her hair, embarrassing photos from her teen years and taught us a new hair term—TWA (Teenie Weenie Afro!). Plus, she gave us plenty of tried-and-true natural hair care tips, should you be contemplating embracing your hair’s natural texture.
For never-before-seen snaps of Tamu McPherson, and to hear the story of how she found the perfect pixie, watch her tell-all video below:
