In the August issue of Allure, Williams, who usually wears her hair in braids, says she never made a big deal about getting her hair done.
“I have never been a ‘hair person,’” she explains. “Growing up, my mom and my sister, who loved to get their hair done, would always give me a hard time about not getting mine done. But I don’t like hurting. And a lot of the time, to get my hair done, I would have to get it hot-combed and pressed — and that involves having a really hot metal comb running through your hair.”
The actress also commented on why she prefers doing her own makeup.
“I’m a tomboy, but I really love doing my makeup — I find it relaxing and grounding,” Williams tells the magazine. “Even now, I bring my own stuff to shoots because a lot of makeup artists don’t know how to work with African-American skin — they’ll make me all one color.”
