It’s no secret that Empire star Sierra McClain made a splash on the hit TV series! The rising star, who plays “Nessa” on the show, exudes just as much beauty and talent off-screen as she does on. Sophisticate’s Black Hair was lucky enough to have an exclusive photo shoot and interview with the star to bring you all her must-have mane secrets. Let’s check it out!

A Sexy Snip Says It All

Sierra’s hot style is a trendsetting look on Empire. SBH had to find out the inspiration and mane maintenance for this gorgeous look. “Wigs have been a lifesaver for me because I’m very big on protecting my own hair,” shares Sierra. “I think it’s important, too, when you’re on a television show for [character role] consistency. My hair is always braided up underneath and they throw a wig on. The wigs are a great way to protect the hair.”

Sierra rocks a high-volume style that was transformed from her sleek pixie wig. A boost of texture and some backcombing gives this style its sky-high height.

Sierra’s Natural hair is ultra-curly! “[My Natural hair] is big and curly,” she says. “When I do wear my Natural hair, I don’t really do anything to it. I take it down and that’s it. The texture is crinkly, for sure, when I take it down.” When she does wear it loose, people barely recognize her. “It’s crazy how big of a difference hair can make on your appearance,” she says. “If I have my Natural hair out, [fans] might not recognize me as ‘Nessa’ but they may recognize me as Sierra from other work I’ve done.”
