How has Black beauty changed since 1910? Billie Holiday-esque bold lips and an updo decorated with flowers was the go-to look of the ’40s, while the ’70s called for big ‘fros and natural makeup. The ’90s gave us the realness of Janet Jackson’s Poetic Justice braids, but our favorite look may just be today’s, in which women embrace their textured tresses in all their glory.
