Who is your hair inspiration? I did not know until I watched Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion. In that movie, I saw one of the most beautiful African American actresses with absolutely gorgeous tresses. Her name is Lisa Arrindell Anderson, and she has been in a number of Tyler Perry movies, plays, and tv shows. In Madea’s Family Reunion, she played Vanessa (the sister with two children who ends up falling in love with Boris Kodjoe).
However, her body of work encompasses more than just Tyler Perry movies. It includes Clockers, Having Our Say: The Delany Sister’s First 100 Years, and A Lesson Before Dying, among others. Whether it be two strand twists, elegant updos, or twist-outs, her hair is always fierce. What I wouldn’t pay to know her hair and body routine.
