The gospel music powerhouse duo behind Columbia Records CD The Sound might be known as Mary Mary collectively, but separately they are sisters Erica and Tina Campbell. During our SBH photo shoot we caught up with these gorgeous women for the behind-the-scenes scoop! “I thought this look was hot,” says Tina of this hairstyle and outfit she wears in this portrait by Chicago-based designer Barbara Bates. “It made me want to rock out and do a bunch of fun, crazy stuff!”

“My favorite look [for the photo shoot] was the black jacket with the black leggings,” says Erica of this sexy outfit, also by fashion designer Barbara Bates. “I think my alter ego is like a rocker chick.” As far as her tress style, Erica wears extensions to accentuate her look. “Let’s call additional hair ‘assistance,’” says the star. “If I sweat, you are going to see the effects of it much quicker than you would with ‘assistance.’ [The extensions] are to prevent wear and tear.”

Celebrity makeup artist Tia Dantzler applies a touch of shadow to Tina’s eyelids. Tina, who once worked as a makeup artist, shares her beauty thoughts: “I did makeup for a few different magazine shoots, and I realized I was not committed [to the career]. But I enjoyed makeup and I enjoyed playing with it and creating!”

Celebrity hair expert AJ Johnson touches up Erica’s tresses on the set of our SBH photo shoot. Erica, a former hairstylist, offers her best tress advice: “Keep your hair clean and conditioned,” recommends the singer. “[As a hairstylist] I was all about healthy hair.”
