At the premiere of Gringo in Los Angeles, the actress (who plays Nakia in Black Panther) sported a head full of side-swept flat twists done by her go-to guy, Vernon François. With help from Marva Stokes, François used his own Vernon Francois Mist~Nourishing Water to help lock in hydration along with Vernon Francois Pure~Fro Moisture Spray to soften her kinks and coils, which made it easier to braid.

It’s likely that most Americans under 30 — black, white, or otherwise — don’t know much about the iconic Black Panther Party, the militant, black-led, antiracist, anticapitalist political group that sprang to life in Oakland, Calif., in 1966 as a reaction to police brutality. In the following 16 years of its existence, it rocked the country, and the world, with its explosive mixture of black empowerment, community organizing, radical politics, and fierce fashion … not to mention its bloody internal feuds, criminality, and sexism. The party upended the civil rights conversation in post-Martin Luther King-era America, and its signature look — berets, huge Afros, dark sunglasses, black leather jackets, raised fists, and openly wielded guns — became synonymous with the 1960s-’70s ideas of black power and black pride. Who would have thought that the previously apolitical Beyoncé would’ve used the halftime show at the Super Bowl — that consummate symbol of corporate American power — to thrust the Panthers back into the public eye 50 years after their formation?
