Step out in style with a stunning mane designed by Zee of Z Mahogany Hair Studio of Conyers, GA.

Human hair extensions are sewn in to a caramel-colored silhouette to add volume and length. Natural hair is left out at the top of the crown, while extensions are added and then cut into slight layers to blend in with the Natural coif. To create cascading waves down the entire silhouette, use a large-barrel curling wand. Brush out hair to further blend the style, then apply hair wax to help tame any flyaways.



Lawrence Washington

Top stylist Lawrence Washington always had a passion for beauty and has made his mark on the industry in a big way. In addition to having served as co-host of Bravo’s Fashion Queens, he has styled beauties like singers Jennifer Holliday, Ciara and tennis star Serena Williams.


While Lawrence Washington has styled many celebrities, he doesn’t want to be called a “celebrity stylist” and he shares why…

“Being a celebrity stylist was never my focus,” says the mane pro. “It’s always been imbedded in me to be a salon professional and I learned that the salon is where my spirit is—so that’s what I am. I’m a salon professional who does celebrities from time to time.”
