American actress Kiki Layne, who plays Nile in Netflix’s “The Old Guard”, is hair goals.

Layne first rose to fame in 2018, following her splendid performance in the critically-acclaimed “If Beale Street Could Talk”.  Not only does she know how to get into character, but she also knows how to look the part, too.

During “The Old Guard” virtual press tour, she looked fashionable – nothing new there. But her different hairstyles is what turned heads.

Layne always had a thing for dramatic hairstyles, whether it’s thick braids or a big bun, she’s forever on-trend.

To celebrate the talent that she is, we look at some of her most iconic hairstyles.

At the Art and Film Gala in 2018, she wore a straight cut bob.
