Hairstyle File: Regina King Through The Years

From her role as teenaged Brenda on the 1980's NBC series "227" to her recent turn as beleaguered LAPD detective Lydia Adams on TNT's gritty drama "Southland," award-winning actress Regina King has grown up before our eyes! Almost without any fanfare, she quietly managed to be one of the most prolific actresses in Hollywood. Consider the fact that, along with starring in mainstream blockbusters like Enemy of the State, Jerry McGuire and Ray, she also appeared in practically every Black hit made in the '90s (hello, Boys n The Hood, Poetic Justice, Friday, How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Higher Learning)! Along with building an impressive resume of classic films, King has also amassed a series of fabulous hairstyles over the years. Here, a gallery of our favorite Regina King coifs since she first stepped on the scene.
