Over the past few years there’s been a steady increase in celebri­ties rock­ing nat­ur­al styles on the red car­pet (this pre­vi­ous­ly was very rare.) It is a joy to see beau­ti­ful, intri­cate and grace­ful nat­ur­al styles have such high vis­i­bil­i­ty. And the ladies are KILLING IT. But who is respon­si­ble for these amaz­ing looks? Chances are it’s one of the these three ladies…

Feli­cia Leather­wood (@lovingyourhair)

If you want an updo that will make every­one faint when you walk in the room, Feli­cia Leather­wood is IT. She’s respon­si­ble for Issa Rae’s many dope hair­styles, and also gives work­shops on healthy hair. She’s been a long time favorite of mine and I couldn’t be hap­pi­er for her suc­cess. Her oth­er clients include Skai Jack­son and Tey­on­ah Par­ris.

Dr. Kari Williams (@drkariwill)

Dr. Kari Williams is also the own­er of Mahogany Hair Rev­o­lu­tion in LA, and you can trust that your hair will be treat­ed with the utmost care while being styled. She’s a tri­chol­o­gist, so scalp issues and hair loss are her spe­cial­ty. Dr. Williams is also the styl­ist behind the loc styles we’ve been see­ing on Brandy and Mea­gan Good.

Camille Reed (@noire_salon)

Camille is the own­er of Noire Salon in Sil­ver Spring, and one of her many claims to fame is col­or­ing locs. Her own locs are col­ored and oh so amaz­ing, and she can style locs like you’ve nev­er seen. I remem­ber see­ing her port­fo­lio years ago and I didn’t even know that you could do that with locs! Her clients have includ­ed Luvvie Ajayi and THE Ava DuVer­nay — love!
