When the news of Prince Henry and Meghan Markle's engagement broke, Black Twitter collectively flipped their shit. Sure, Markle won't technically be an actual princess, but that won't stop us from claiming her as our resident Black American Duchess (or baddie, for short) for the rest of her royal days.
What's even more exciting is the fact that Markle's mom, Doria Ragland, will be front and center for the ceremonies... and that's she's representing with locs. This has never happened before. Even though it's 2018, there are still plenty of cultural stereotypes surrounding the protective style — including the fact that they aren't glamorous enough for special events. Well, critics be damned. Locs are just as gorgeous as a shiny blowout or Hollywood curls... and just as versatile as well. Need proof? Check out styles worn by Jourdan Dunn, Lena Waithe, and more... and keep your eyes peeled for how Ragland rocks hers tomorrow.
