Warner Bros. recording artist Lianne La Havas, who hails from London, has captured the attention of music icons like Prince and Jill Scott. Her soulful voice and fearless style make her a standout not only on the music charts, but also on our style radar. Check out what the Is Your Love Big Enough singer/songwriter said about her Natural mane moves in an interview with SBH

“When I was about 14, I relaxed my hair and did it for several years,” shares the songstress. “Then, I stopped doing it when I was about 20 years old…I’ve pretty much been Natural ever since. I like to see Natural hair on girls because it’s part of their beauty.”

How does Lianne keep her mane in check? “My hair is quite coarse but still a bit soft and the curls are corkscrew curls,” she says. “It’s very difficult to maintain but I make sure I get it cut or trimmed every two months, at least. And, I make sure I condition it more than I wash it. I moisturize it every day, sometimes twice a day!” When comes to getting coiffed, there are only two people Lianne turns to. “I have an amazing hairdresser in the UK (Eugene Davis) and an amazing hairdresser in the USA (Jake Dingler), and they’re the only two people who I trust to touch my hair!”
