“Huxtable” Hair

17 Dec

Remember the oddball middle child on The Cosby Show? Vanessa Huxtable was played by actress Tempestt Bledsoe. In the actress’ younger days on the show, she often wore a single braid to the back or maybe individual braids pulled into a ponytail. However, as Tempestt (and her character Vanessa) became a teenager her natural curls and kinks were on display more often than not. As a young girl watching the show I remember thinking, “what is wrong with that girls hair?!?” But looking back I love that Bledsoe (V. Huxtable)  was able to express herself through creative funky hairstyles. Below are a few “Vanessa styles” as well as more recent photos of Tempestt and her natural curls.
