In a recent picture, Sidibe is rocking an afro weave with a side parting. She sports a grey Nike top and jacket with a silver necklace and oversized glasses that give her a nerdy look.

Her fans wasted no time getting to the comments section to rave over her hair.

"That hair on point," said one Instagram user.

"I love this hair on you!" confessed another fan, while another called her hair "Magical."

MESSY HAIR, DON'T CARE

Sidibe has been documenting some hairstyles on her Instagram page more often. In July, we reported that the “Precious” star gave followers a glimpse of her messy natural hair while sitting in a stylist’s chair.

In August, Sidibe also went bold with a black-and-red weave as she headed to see her therapist. “After 3 weeks off, I’m so excited to see my therapist today! I have a lot to say,” she captioned that picture.

FINDING THE RIGHT OUTFIT IS A CHALLENGE 

Sidibe’s recent photos reflect a woman confident in herself regardless of what hairstyle or outfit adorns her body. The actress, who underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery to lose weight in 2016, has remained vocal about her struggles with weight and the challenges she’s had to face in her line of work.

The “Grimsby” actress once revealed that designers deny her a chance to wear their clothes because she’s “too fat.” Her first major red carpet appearance was at the Cannes Film Festival, and she had to get her dress at a retail shop.

Speaking at the last New York Fashion Week, Sidibe pushed for more inclusiveness in fashion:

“Even though we are moving towards more visibility for plus-size people, there is a lot [of] pushback. So it’s important to keep fighting [and] to keep being visible until the conversation changes and [it] is no longer about our bodies because I'm not my body. I'm a whole person.”

HOW SHE STAYS CONFIDENT

But despite being endlessly criticized and called mean names for her weight, the “This is just my face; Try not to stare” author maintains a positive outlook on life and is not about to let anyone rain on her parade.

“So how am I so confident? Because it's my good time and my good life,” Sidibe said at the 2018 Makers Conference in May.

“Despite what you think of me. I live my life. I live my life because I dare. I dare to show up still when anyone else might hide their face and their entire body in shame. I show up because I want to have a good time.”

Go, Gabby!
