Serayah formerly known as Serayah McNeill, is serving super curl style. The actress who now goes by her first name mononym plays singer Tiana on the Fox series Empire. Serayah’s billow of beautiful natural curls stand out as much as her vocals on camera. She recently appeared in an interview where she says that her dad taught her how to do her hair. Or more accurately, how she picked up her own skills after her dad’s brushing techniques were a little too harsh. These days, the daddy’s girl is getting shine for her fabulous looks and rising fame.
And she’s no stranger to controversy. Her character, Tiana, was considered a knock-off of another famous curly star – Teyana Taylor, whose recent collaboration with Migos is sparking another kind of controversy entirely. While Serayah has stated that Tiana is not Teyana, we can say there’s enough room for all the lovely curly naturals to get the attention they deserve.
