Teyana Taylor

There’s no doubt about it—Teyana Taylor has talent. From singing and dancing, to rapping and acting, the Harlem native does it all. SBH caught up with Teyana to chat about her fabulous hair, her best beauty secrets and her new music. Find out what the extraordinary R&B songstress has to say here…

Tell us about on your debut album, VII?
It’s definitely one of those albums that’s going to hit home. It has an R&B, 90’s kind of vibe because the 90’s era is my biggest inspiration.

What can we expect style-wise for VII?
My style is definitely unique. I play a couple of different characters within myself, so it’s kind of fun to step out of the box and try different things.

Would you describe your overall look is minimal or glam?
I go both, but I would definitely say my look is just big.

How would you describe your hair?
My hair is big and curly…my hair is big—winter, spring, summer and fall.

Do you use a lot of hair products when styling your hair?
Just coconut oil. I’m not a big hairspray person. I don’t really like when my hair is “hard”; I like it when it just flows.

Do you have any tips for styling big hair?
If you want to keep that curl without having to do much in the morning, definitely twist the hair at night.

What beauty items are always in your purse?
My lipstick, lip liner, brow kit and a little powder palette for touch-ups.
