At the start of the play, Beneatha's hair is straightened. As the story progresses, we see Asagai question her desire to have the hair of a white woman...... something that prompts her to cut off her hair and embrace the natural afro, a part of her heritage. Cutting her hair is a statement, it symbolizes beauty and a statement of nonconformity.
