We stan a good selfie, especially one that embraces natural beauty. So when Lili Reinhart posted one revealing her tight blonde curls, we were instantly in love.
Like us normal people, many celebrities have taken to embracing their natural hair through 2020 and 2021. In the absence of tool-equipped glam squads and red carpets, everyone from Jesy Nelson to Selena Gomez took to the ‘gram to proudly display their naturally curly hair. And the more we see the A-list skipping the straighteners in favour of showing hair of all textures and types, the better.
Lili has shown her curls before, but they rarely make a public appearance. Mostly she is known for having her hair styled straight on red carpet events, or if there is a curl, it’s never as tight as her natural ones are.
In the image you can see her light blonde hair falling out of a bandana (now suddenly we want one of those too?!) in the most casual way.
Her curls also aren’t perfectly defined here which is something we also love. Reminder: frizz, flyaways and imperfect strands are *normal*. No one’s hair sits in ultra definition all of the time – especially without a stylist or professional to do the work for you.
Already the shot has over 4million likes and thousands of comments, with people saying how pretty she looks in this stripped back and natural photo.
She jokingly captioned it with: “*White Woman’s Instagram by Bo Burnham starts to play*”, which is a nod to Bo Burnham’s Netflix special that jokes about the Instagram selfie aesthetics.
We could all do with taking ourselves less seriously by embracing our natural looks. Lockdown gave us the perfect platform for that, with the privacy to experiment or wear our hair in ways we never had before. Now as we get back out there – as much as we’ll enjoy getting glam again – we might also feel more comfortable in our own skin.
