[BLANK_AUDIO] Star of the new Lifetime movie, Love By the Tenth Date, please welcome Meagan Good back to the Essence Live family. Hello, hello. Hello, hello. Okay, your hair is fierce. Thank you. It's fabulous. Talk to me about it. What inspired you to do it? I was sitting with my stylist, Myesha Oliver and I was telling her I wanted to get dreads. And I had seen that Sierra had dreads before and Deanna Taylor had dreads. And I said, Those are beautiful but I really wanted to do something really different. I want to do something more like homage to Lisa Bonet. You know. Yes. And so she was like let me hook you up with someone, and so she hooked me up with Dr. Kari. I explained to her what I wanted and I was like I want it to look like old. I want it to look real, but I also want it to be curly at the bottom and look like it grew from my head. Right. You know. And she was like, I don't know how to do that, and I don't know if they do that. Let me go pray about it and I'll get back to you. So she came back a week later and she was like, God gave me a vision for how to do it. We're gonna do it. And since then, by the grace of God, they've blown up and Tyra Banks is wearing them, even Marcel and Kelis. Amazing Thank you. [BLANK_AUDIO]
