Towanda Braxton

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.




For Towanda Braxton, success is in her DNA. She spent years singing background vocals for her sister, R&B chanteuse Toni Braxton, and also acted as the star’s personal assistant. When she noticed a need for high quality coaching for aspiring celebrity assistants, she decided to start her own professional training program, The Secret Squirrel, in order to share her expertise with others. Towanda also stars with her siblings on the hit WE tv television show Braxton Family Values. “I want to be remembered as a respectable and loving mother, sister and woman.”

“My message for young people is to have a plan, make goals and work toward achieving what you want. Find something that inspires you to work hard for what you want. Anything is possible.”
