Hair by Rebecca_Divine
We’re forever thankful for the evolution of the beauty industry. Stylists like Rebecca Divine (who we’re calling Magic Hands) have made getting your hair slayed something that you look forward to as opposed to a chore.
There is no need to even try and argue about the importance of black women’s hair in our lives: hours spent in the hairdressers getting your hair straightened and then only for it to be ruined when it rained. The magical moment when your mom let you put beads at the end of your braids. The incredibly laborious process that is deciding what hairstyle to do and then actually finding a stylist to do it. It’s all such a big deal.
We caught up with Rebecca to hear how she started her slay:
I started loving to do my own hair from a young age and I did all my families hair for free. I then started to do it as a side hustle here and there because it was something I was good at. The passion grew when I started working at a salon and when I left uni I needed to make money so I marketed my brand on insta and people seem to like my hair styles and I made it into a business that’s popping lol so I kinda just fell into it as I’m self taught.
On maintaining braided hairstyles:
Top tip for maintaining braids is wrap your head at night with a silk head scarf. That’s a key.?
