Lisa Leslie

role model

Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




Lisa Leslie has made an indelible mark on the world, both on and off the court. She joined the WNBA in the league’s inaugural year, and played for the Los Angeles Sparks from 1997 to 2009. Leslie helped the Sparks win two championships, earned eight MVP titles, and became the first woman to dunk in a professional basketball game. She has also won four Olympic gold medals and written an autobiography, Don’t Let the Lipstick Fool You. “My goal is writing to inspire girls to learn how to love themselves. When I learned to love myself, I was totally confident and that really helped me to become more successful.”

“I’d like to be remembered as one of the most versatile players to every play the game. As a person, off the court, I’d like to be remembered just as someone who was always giving.”
