Backstage Hair Hacks To Try!

Gocha Hawkins is an Atlanta-based hairstylist who was also a featured cast member on season 4 of WEtv’s reality show L.A. Hair. The star hair pro counts music/reality TV star Kandi Burruss, Basketball Wives beauty Malaysia Pargo and superstar Nicki Minaj among the celebs who’ve sat in her style chair. So when we asked her to reveal a no-fail hair hack she uses, the talented pro was more than happy to oblige with this tip: “Attach a quick ponytail extension—and double it for thickness. It’s the best go-to style that can make your day go from bad to better. Plus, this volumizing trick makes your hair more full of life.” For more clever hair hacks from some of today’s top mane pros, check out the “Glam Squad Hair Secrets” story in the Dec/Jan ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!
