While Vampire Diaries actress Kat has been wearing her hair straight in Cannes, she said earlier this year that she has ‘finally learned to accept’ her natural curly tresses.
‘I’ve really learned to accept my curls, my ‘fro and my African roots,’ she told Du Jour magazine.
She explained that as a child, her white mother didn’t know how to handle her textured hair and recalled being dropped off alone to a black-run hair salon by her desperate mother when she was only six.

The beauty shop visits left a lasting impression on the actress, who felt ‘rejected’ in a way.
‘My mum would just drop me off at the salon. Emotionally, it felt like I was being rejected because my parent couldn’t really handle it,’ she explained.
She began to value more ‘manageable’ locks, associating them with success in her personal and professional life. But now she’s come to embrace her natural beauty.
‘Whether you’re black or not, we all struggle with self-acceptance,’ she said, ‘and we all have our own individual journeys.’
Say cheese! Gemma posed for the long line of photographers who were there to snap the stars arriving for the evening
