If you're Taraji P. Henson, the answer is "no". After a break from this year's award season where the Empire star delived a number of glam, wavy bob moments, Henson returned to the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet with a lighter, brighter shade. Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic Henson went back to blonde with a warm, rich shade that was styled sleek and straight by her stylist Tymothe Wallace. What's more impressive is that her hair managed to stay smooth and flyaway-free despite the rain and hail that caused the stars to hit a pause on their red carpet arrivals. File it under further proof that Henson can flawless pull off any look.
