Actress Viola Davis became an icon in the natural hair world when she ditched her wigs and rocked her mini fro on the red carpet of the 2012 Oscars. Who could have given her the inspiration to do this? None other than her husband, actor Julius Tennon! Davis told Instyle, “My husband wanted me to take the wig off. 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."
Davis and Tennon will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary on June 23rd. Davis described her marriage to Tennon as something natural. She told US magazine she fell in love with Tennon because of the way he lived his life and how he endured as a single father. She believes their marriage was a blessing from God. Tennon has been her support and inspiration of growth in family life and her inspiration when it comes to being herself in Hollywood.
