Yvonne Orji Shaved the Black Power Fist Into Her Hair for the Emmys

Insecure star Yvonne Orji won best hair at [tonight's] SUNDAY NIGHT'S 2020 Emmy Awards — well, if you ask us, that is. The 36-year-old American-Nigerian actor, who's nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Molly on the HBO hit series, debuted a raised fist symbol shaved into the side of her head in honor of the Black Lives Matter Movement. And the look is nothing short of award-worthy.

The powerful design was created by none other than men's grooming specialist Mickey West-Potts, who posted about the look on his Instagram with the caption: "Had fun hooking my girl @yvonneorji with this design …she looks amazing for the #Emmys2020 ❤️."

Orji also shared a photo of the iconic hair look, along with an equally iconic caption: "NUFF✊🏾SAID🖤#Emmys2020." In terms of who actually styled Orji's hair for the event, that would be hair go-to girl Mary Daniels. They went for a fresh, no-frills look to let the BLM design do all the talking.

Of course, we're not the only ones obsessed with Orji's Emmys look. She's already received a well-spring of positive comments on her post, with folks leaving messages like: "Queen! 👑 👑 👑," "ITS THE FIST FOR ME🙌," and "When you go to the Emmys looking like an award!!!! Yasssss."

As for makeup, Drini Marie gave Orji a red lip that matched her gorgeous gown, and kept the rest of the look sophisticated and simple with black liner, lush lashes, and radiant skin.

Like the one user said: Orji showed up to the Emmys looking like an award herself. And it's all about the fist (plus that lip) for us, too. To support the Black Lives Matter movement, considering donating to some of these incredible organizations — or, here's what you can do if you don't have the funds to donate right now.
