SANAA ON STYLE
March 25, 2017
Sanaa looking stunning on the red carpet to promote her new show, Shots Fired.
She’s a big-screen favorite (The Perfect Guy and The Best Man Holiday just to name a couple of her movie hits). Now actress Sanaa Lathan is shifting gears and bringing her talent to television in the new drama Shots Fired (FOX-TV). “I knew I had to deal with humidity,” shared Sanaa about the North Carolina filming location for Shots Fired. So, rather than put her hair through the trauma of constant styling (and re-styling) on set, she opted for a protective coif. “I’m wearing a wig on the show,” she shared. For more on Sanaa, check out Sophisticate’s Black Hair’s exclusive interview with the star in the May 2017 issue…on sale now.
