We almost didn't recognise Ayo Edebiri with her glorious gigantic halo hair

Ayo Adebiri may have won a Golden Globe, an Emmy, a Critics Choice Award, and a SAG Award, but this hair deserves an award of its own. The actress just appeared on our feeds wearing her coils and kinks brushed out into a glorious halo hair afro and we're gagged. She looks sooooo good.

Ayo frequently wears her hair in braids like her character Chef Sydney Adamu in her wildly successful show, The Bear. She's no stranger to a silk press and sometimes sports a gorg straight bob wig or the occasional long number. It's less common that we see her kinky coily hair texture worn loose, and if you haven't seen her iconic role in the movie Bottoms, you might never have seen her natural hair out before. So, you'd be forgiven for a double take.

Not only is she wearing her natural texture in this Vanity Fair shoot, but her coils have been brushed out and teased to their max volume, creating a beautiful afro halo hair. Delicate and fluffy, this is the physical manifestation of Black Girl Magic – our hair can literally transform with a few brush strokes.

The statement mass of dark hair contrasting with the doll-like makeup and baby-girl outfit? It's impossibly cool. My girl crush on her is not going anywhere anytime soon and it's safe to say, I will be brushing my curls out again ASAP. There really is nothing like it.
