SBH Exclusive! Talking Beauty With Evelyn & Shaniece
When it comes to the mother/daughter relationship on the popular docu-series “Livin’ Lozada,” there can be a whole lot of drama…and a whole lot of beauty! Out of the gate for its latest season on OWN, reality star Evelyn Lozada, of “Basketball Wives” fame, and her 22-year-old daughter Shaniece Hairston are pulling back the curtain on the new paths both are embarking on in life. But though there may be drama, there’s always room for beauty when it comes to these stunning women!
Sophisticate’s Black Hair asked the mother/daughter pair to share just some of the ways they stay so glam…
Do you have care tips for SBH readers you’d like to share?
Evelyn: Condition once a week, get your hair trimmed every 10-12 weeks and try to go under a dryer instead of blow-drying your hair.
Shaniece: Deep conditioning treatments are important, coconut oil is a must (cheap and cheerful), and keeping up with your haircuts is important for healthy, growing, shiny hair.
Do you each have a favorite hair care product or tool you can’t live without?
Evelyn: Nioxin shampoo and conditioner (once every other week for dry scalp), BioSilk Silk Therapy (every time I style my hair), Kerastase Shampoo and Conditioner (once a week or every one and a half weeks).
Shaniece: I am obsessed with Oribe dry shampoo. It works for when I want volume or when I would like to make my blow dry last one more day (it makes the hair look clean again).
If we looked inside your makeup bags, what would we find?
Evelyn: You would find Chanel lip gloss in #131, Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, Keihls lip balm, Buxom gloss in Destiny, Jo Malone perfume in Grapefruit, MAC Lip Glass in It’s A Wow, Coco Chanel perfume, hand sanitizer, Beauty Blender makeup sponge, YSL mascara, Anastasia Brow Pencil, NARS mascara, MAC blush in Peaches, MAC concealer, Dose of Colors in Corset.
Shaniece: There would be Make Up For Ever HD foundation, Bobbi Brown foundation stick, Kevyn Aucoin concealer, Too Faced pumping lipgloss, EOS lip balm, Dose of Colors in Sand lip stain.
How would you describe your approach to hair and beauty?
Evelyn: My hair is worth my time and money. My hair plays a big part on how I feel so I make sure to put in my hair what I take out with color and styling. When it comes to beauty, I make sure I feel great on the inside first!
Shaniece: I try to be as natural as possible. I like to believe less is more.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve learned from each other?
Evelyn: I’ve learned to use dry shampoo when your hair is dirty!
Shaniece: She taught me conditioning treatments are important for shiny, healthy hair—she is obsessed with them and now I am too.
