Viola has been trying a new hairstyle recently and it’s all due to encouragement by her family!

Viola Davis, Best Actress nominee at the Oscars, showed up on the red carpet without her signature wig and admitted to Ryan Seacrest that her own mother did her hair! Viola’s husband was the one who first suggested she attend the event sans wig. “My husband wanted me to take the wig off,” Viola tells InStyle. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!’ It’s a powerful statement.”

Who doesn’t struggle with their natural hair texture? Too flat, too voluminous, not wavy enough — everyone has their opinion. Do you love that Viola is embracing her natural hair?
