SBH Cover Taraji P. Henson

As “Cookie Lyon,” on the hit Fox-TV show Empire, actress Taraji P. Henson is the undisputed queen. And when we asked Sophisticate’s Black Hair readers to name the “10 Best-Styled Women of 2017” in our annual Readers’ Poll, you crowned the Hidden Figures star at the top of the list! So for our big 33rd Anniversary edition—the awesome May 2017 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair—there was no question Taraji was destined to be our cover star! Here, check out some of her trendsetting hairstyles..

Red-carpet bob!
