Meet the Hairstylist Behind the Black Girls Rock Look for Songstress Victory Boyd

September 12, 2018 (New York, NY) — This  past Sunday, September 9, BET aired its 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 between   soul   music and folk music with a pinch of spiritual depth– a   side of   her that she brings out in her hairstyles and fashion.

The incomparable hairstylist who not only slayed  Victory’s   tresses for the Black Girls Rock red  carpet and performance,   but also for numerous  other events is none other than the   renowned,  celebrity hair master Monaè Everett. Best known   for her stunning, intricate braided styles, Monaè  has had   her hairstyles featured with national  media giants such as Harper’s BAZAARESSENCE, InStyle, Glamour, CNN, and Yahoo!  Beauty. Her artistry has been displayed on such  celebs as Lilimar Hernandez, Lizzy GreeneSofia Wylie, Skylar Diggins, Dawn- Lyen  Gardner, Taraji P. Henson, and many more.

Monaè combines her 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,” says Monaè. “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, Monaè   has 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, Monaè  styled  Victory’s hair  in a  big, fluffy, afro with twisted-out  ends that  distinctively,  and perfectly, framed Victory’s  entire face.
