Actress Elle Lorraine is making waves with her breakout role in Bad Hair, a campy dark comedy that premiered on Hulu in October. Set in 1989 Los Angeles, the film follows an ambitious young Black woman and her possessed, murderous hair extensions. But Lorraine, who has appeared on Insecure and Dear White People, says the film is really a metaphor for how Black women cope with white society’s beauty standards.

The petite starlet, who rocks Rapunzel-length braided locks on her Instagram feed, says she has struggled with her hair and her identity, and experimented with weaves, straightening, and even going blond (causing her hair to fall out). “Now my hair defines me in a totally different way,” she says.

This month, she models fashion fit for the holidays. Adding a texture to any outfit, like sequins or satin, will give your look a festive pop.
