Tennis champion, entrepreneur, and history maker, Venus Williams has been a long time trendsetter of hair. When her and her sister, Serena Williams first appeared on our television screens in the 1990's, they were running up and down the court with their trendy beaded hairstyles. Both women have won several tennis championships and made history as the first African Americans to do so, in many categories.

In 2011, pictures of Venus Williams rocking her natural hair, surfaced on the internet. Williams has kept her hair natural while switching between extensions, weave, and natural hairstyles. I love the fact that she has maintained her individuality throughout her career.
