Over the past few years there’s been a steady increase in celebrities rocking natural styles on the red carpet (this previously was very rare.) It is a joy to see beautiful, intricate and graceful natural styles have such high visibility. And the ladies are KILLING IT. But who is responsible for these amazing looks? Chances are it’s one of the these three ladies…
Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair)
If you want an updo that will make everyone faint when you walk in the room, Felicia Leatherwood is IT. She’s responsible for Issa Rae’s many dope hairstyles, and also gives workshops on healthy hair. She’s been a long time favorite of mine and I couldn’t be happier for her success. Her other clients include Skai Jackson and Teyonah Parris.
Dr. Kari Williams (@drkariwill)
Dr. Kari Williams is also the owner of Mahogany Hair Revolution in LA, and you can trust that your hair will be treated with the utmost care while being styled. She’s a trichologist, so scalp issues and hair loss are her specialty. Dr. Williams is also the stylist behind the loc styles we’ve been seeing on Brandy and Meagan Good.
I just wanted to say, 2016 has been a defining year for all of us and it isn’t over. Let’s make these last few days of the year count! I hope you all are having a great day! 😊 This is one of my goals for #2017 to continue to connect and grow with you all! #drkariwilliamsinspired #drkariwilliams #drkari
Camille Reed (@noire_salon)
Camille is the owner of Noire Salon in Silver Spring, and one of her many claims to fame is coloring locs. Her own locs are colored and oh so amazing, and she can style locs like you’ve never seen. I remember seeing her portfolio years ago and I didn’t even know that you could do that with locs! Her clients have included Luvvie Ajayi and THE Ava DuVernay — love!
