SQUAD UP! 

We’re teaming up with The Cut to offer a lucky ESSENCE reader and their best friend the chance to win a free trip to New York City for the ultimate glam makeover with celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen and makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff.

Stephen has tranfromed the tresses of Rihanna and other mega stars—including Kerry Washington and Mary J. Blige. And Sheriff is the makeup artist behind Taraji P. Henson’s stunning looks, and has also touched the faces of Zendaya, and Zoe Kravitz, just to name a few. Long story short, you’re in good hands. 

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. After you’re all glam, get ready to model in a full-blown photo shoot that will be featured on ESSENCE. What are you waiting for? Enter to win here now!
