In the caption, referring to the rings on her fingers, she wrote “Thanos Drip,” before proceeding to acknowledge her stylist, nail technician, and Jewel merchant. Her fans were excited about the throwback photo as they went down memory lane with the actress.

Most of her followers were, however, fascinated with the beautiful rings, two on her right hand, and three on her left. It’s no surprise, however, that Yara chose to rock her natural curls to the event.

The actress has been embracing her curls for a while now. Today reports that the Blackish star recently opened up about why she enjoys wearing her natural hair and her hair journey so far.

Curls can be very voluminous and take a whole lot of space, but she sees it as a confidence booster and a constant reminder of her current position as an activist and pacesetter.

According to Today, Yara now has a look-alike Barbie doll and is also partnering with the toy brand on the Dream Gap project.

The project is a global initiative that gives girls the resources and support they need to continue believing they can do or be anything.

The young role model also describes her hair as a representation of her mixed identity. Her father is Iranian-American photographer Afshin Shahidi, and her mother is African-American actress Keri Shahidi.

Although she and her mother have different curl patterns, the “Blackish” actress admitted to Today that her mother has always assisted in her natural hair journey by styling and providing care tips.

Another black woman that has also influenced Yara’s style is Kerry Washington. According to Insider, the 20-year-old shared with LA Times that Kerry, who is one of her style icons, reminds her of how important it is to be authentic.

The young actress herself is an icon. She has been playing Zoey Johnson on ABC’s “Blackish” since she was 13 and has grown and evolved with her character, who a college-set Freeform spin-off, Grown-ish, is created after.

Entertainment Weekly shares that Shahidi, in the last six years since the first episode of “Blackish” aired has graduated from high school, resumed at Harvard University, and also established herself as an inspiring activist.
