Celebrity Stylist


Yancey Edwards

With his father being a musician, Yancey Edwards grew up knowing that he wanted to be part of the entertainment industry, whether he was behind the scenes or not. The hair pro has styled big stars including Faith Evans, Naturi Naughton and Sherri Shepard and he also works as the hairstylist for ABC’s The View. SBH caught up with the mane maven to get the inside scoop on his life as a celebrity stylist.

HIS VIEW: The mane pro shares what it’s like to work on The View: “Working on The View is definitely a fun job and I’ve been able to touch some of the people who have really inspired me to be who I am like Jennifer Holliday and Patti LaBelle.”

HARD WORK PAYS OFF: “A lot of people think that once you’ve made it, it’s glamourous,”” he explains. “No, you’re still working hard because you want to maintain it—you want to stay there. It could be anybody in this position, but I was the chosen one to do it.”

THE PERKS: The best part about being a celebrity stylist? “Being able to up and call Whoopi Goldberg or have Thanksgiving at her house. It’s those types of things that I don’t take for granted.”
