The Secret Behind Her Spirals!

“Grown-ish” star Yara Shahidi is the Naturalista of her generation. This curly-haired beauty is setting hair trends on and off the set of her hit TV series. The key to the star’s curly coif perfection: celebrity hairdresser Nai’vasha, a.k.a. “The Curl Queen” for her expertise in making spirals and ringlets look even more beautiful. “A lot of people think oil and moisture are the same thing—but they’re not,” notes Nai’vasha. “Your hair can be oily and not be moisturized; so, really get those deep conditioners in there.” For more tips on how to create the perfect Natural, check out our exclusive interview with the star stylist in the March ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair (the one with Yara on the cover!)…on sale now.
