Happy Hair Inspo


For curly coifs, nothing beats a striking updo that’s easy to do—especially on a Monday morning. Enter “Black-ish” TV star Yara Shahidi with this stunning style crafted on Natural spirals. To make a similar look your own, simply direct lengths upward and shape into a high-standing ponytail secured with a covered elastic band at the base. Use a bit of edge control gel along the perimeter to keep any stray strands in check. You’re out the door in five minutes flat. Happy Hair Monday!
