There are natural women around the world making history as true pioneers. As the first week of the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament comes to a close, we wanted to give a natural salute to Venus and Serena Williams. Over 18 years ago, these sisters stepped on the court with an innate talent for tennis, proudly sporting their natural braids and beads. 

Although their style has evolved over the years, natural hair often times remains an accessory to their stylish tennis wear. Prior to the resurrected natural hair phenomenon, these sisters have been serving their style to the world, naturally. Take a look at a few of our favorite natural hair moments from Venus and Serena Williams.
