Love Is In the Hair: Conversations with Sanaa Lathan and Lynn Whitfield, plus Curly Girl Collective’s Gia Lowe
Within Black sisterhood, the relationship with hair is one of our strongest bonds. It’s why Sanaa Lathan (@sanaalathan) took a leap of faith (and clippers!) for her leading role – alongside the ever fabulous Lynn Whitfield (@mslynnwhitfield) -- in Netflix's Nappily Ever After, the long awaited adaptation of the novel about a woman’s search for love beyond her head. In person, the actresses reveal their personal journey to self love and acceptance. And we couldn’t talk about our ‘dos without chatting with experts we love – our very own fashion and beauty director Julee Wilson (@missjulee) and Gia Lowe (@gia.lo) of the Curly Girl Collective (@curlygirlcollective), the hair hub for Black women who produced the epic CurlFest.
