If “Sister Power” were in the encyclopedia, a photograph of tennis gods Serena and Venus Williams would surely be right beside the definition. That’s why we’re featuring them in this week’s #HairBattleThursday: “Sister Duo” Edition.

Straight outta Compton, these two superstars launched into the big leagues, bringing their bright energy and bedazzled hairstyles along with them, ensuring that the professional game of tennis would never be the same. Between the two of them, they’ve won over 20 Grand Slam titles and four Olympic gold medals. 

On top of that, Venus and Serena have continuously taught us how to become champions and remain atop one’s throne, while simultaneously sticking to their own (often controversial and debated) standards of beauty, style and grace. Bow down, indeed.

If you think Venus and Serena Williams are the baddest sister duo, then vote for them in this week’s #HairBattleThursday by reblogging/liking this post.

If you’re in your 20’s, then chances are you grew up alongside Tia and Tamera Mowry, the sister duo stars of the hit sitcom Sister Sister. It’s not easy growing up in the spotlight, as we’ve seen the downfall of many a child star. So, we’re spotlighting Tia and Tamera in this week’s #HairBattleThursday for having not only conquered the beast that is Hollywood, but having done so with such poise and maturity.

In addition to their famous phrase “Go Home, Roger,” the Mowry twins had another staple: mainly, their natural curls. Seeing leading black ladies rock anything but straight hair remains a pretty unusual sight on television, but Tia and Tamera undoubtedly proved that Black girls’ hair texture isn’t stereotypically weaved up or in a perfectly circular Afro, but more often, somewhere in between.

The actresses have since rocked a wide variety of looks, as well as roles, both of which they’ve handled with the unique charm and warmth that made them America’s sweethearts.

Their father is the first Black president of the United States. Talk about having big shoes to fill! But Sasha and Malia Obama have long since captured our hearts with their big smiles, quirky selfies and enviable wardrobes, so we’re finishing this week’s #HairBattleThursday: “Sister Duo” edition with the first daughters.

The Obama daughters are still quite young, so we’ve yet to see what beautiful and accomplished women they will undoubtedly become, but we can’t wait to watch them blossom. Growing up under such a microscope, especially as young women of color, is likely a tremendous challenge, but armed with brilliant parents like President Obama and Michelle, Sasha and Malia have excellent role models to guide them in the right direction. 

Hair-wise, these two cuties are usually following their mom’s lead and wearing perfectly pressed locks, but when they’re on the road or just having some family downtime, Sasha and Malia can be found with a two strand twist or a simple, frizzy ponytail. While we do love a good press, the natural hairstyles remind us why we ride for Sasha and Malia: because they remind us of our Black girl childhood (minus the dad as President part.)
