Get Issa Rae’s MET Gala Hair with Suave

Hair Stylist Felicia Leatherwood for Suave Professionals on Issa Rae’s Celestial Braids:


“Following the celestial theme, I added Senegalese hair adornments to incorporate Issa’s heritage into her look. We wanted something that would play off the theme, but also create something stunning and polished.”

1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Suave Professionals® Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner.issarae bts with Felicia Letherwood

2. Section hair and apply Suave Professionals® Avocado + Olive Oil Leave-In Conditioner all over for maximum moisture. This was the key to make sure her hair was moisturized and flexible for styling.

3. Part hair into small sections, and cornrow hair up and secure with hair pins.
