BET’s much-anticipated show, Black Girls Rock — an annual award show that honors and promotes Black women in different fields involving music, entertainment, medicine, entrepreneurship, and visionary aspects. You may have noticed stylish naturalista and Roc Nation’s up and coming singer-songwriter, Victory Boyd, strut down the Black Girls Rock red carpet rocking an original hairstyle that screamed #BlackGirlMagic — a pinned-up, tall, stout, tousled updo. This carefree ‘do is a perfect representation of the free-spirited songstress’ unique style and personality. Victory’s music is a fusion of soul music and folk music with a pinch of spiritual depth– a side of her that she brings out in her hairstyles and fashion.
I had so much fun styling Victory’s tresses for the Black Girls Rock red carpet and performance, and I have the please of styling her hair for numerous other events as well! Through the years I have had my work featured on Harper’s BAZAAR, ESSENCE, InStyle, Glamour, CNN, and Yahoo! Beauty. As a celebrity stylist I have also been able to work with talents such as Lilimar Hernandez, Lizzy Greene, Sofia Wylie, Skylar Diggins, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Taraji P. Henson, and many more.
When styling Victory’s hair, I combined my professional styling techniques with a flair for originality to help Victory stay true to her personal style. For Black Girls Rock, I styled Victory’s hair using Mizani and Ouidad products, giving her natural coils volume and a little drama to match her stand-out, soulful, colorful style. For Victory, it’s important that I nourish her natural texture while using style elements that not only brings out her personality but also gives her a polished, yet funky, look that always compliments her fashion as well as her music.
In addition to the BET’s Black Girls Rock appearance, I have styled Victory for a multitude of other occasions. During her Good Morning America performance, Victory rocked an afro with a pinned up side secured by a cute hair accessory. For her BET Awards 2018 appearance, and her national anthem performance for an MLB charity game, I styled Victory’s hair in a big, fluffy, afro with twisted-out ends that distinctively, and perfectly, framed Victory’s entire face.
