Welcome To Our New Hair Section!
Michael Rowe

The Black hair industry is shifting like never before. We live in a world where DIY methods are more popular than celebrity hairstylists, kinky weaves reign supreme, and YouTube tutorials are more trusted than doctors. While every Black woman has her own unique method and resource, the common thread is the same: Bad hair days are for the birds.

That’s why we decided to revamp our hair section and streamline our content to better service you. Whether you’re natural, relaxed, in transition or a lover of wigs and weaves, we’ve got something for you. But don’t worry, your favorite sections are still here (Ask The Experts, Hair Street Style, Product Junkies) we just added even more relevant content.

We also added new bloggers to the mix, including: Chime Edwards who I met while lounging in Miami one weekend and fell in love with her energy—she’s an honest naturalista; Cipriana Quann, co-founder of UrbanBushBabes.com; Hairlicious Inc., a true relaxed hair lover; Afrobella, who is constantly breaking new ground in the natural hair space; and of course, Mahogany Curls, who is everyone’s #haircrush.

While you’re here, explore our new how-to videos that will answer all your hair questions. And be sure to share your hair journey with us for a chance to be featured as part of our #MySelfieJourney campaign. Use our site as a resource to feel inspired and motivated to try something new. We’re here to help the best way we know how.

And as usual, reach out to us on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or shoot us an email at beautyeditors@essence.com. We’d love to hear from you! So, stay for awhile and click around. We promise to keep you in the loop while maintaining your healthy tresses.
