Monaé Everett’s client list reads like a who's who of A-list celebrities: Michelle Obama, Serena and Venus Williams, Taraji P. Henson, Mariah Carey, Viola Davis, Connie Britton. She was one of the artists featured on Season 12 of “Project Runway.”

I am a huge fan of Everett. I met her during Texture on the Runway ’17, where she was one of Cantu’s stylist. She saved me when I needed some last-minute curl help before stepping onto the runway, squeezing me in between the Syncopated Ladies and the McClure Twins. She transformed my curls with her skills and I was so impressed that I asked her to do my hair for Texture on the Runway Atlanta.

Everett offered to provide the NaturallyCurly community with a behind-the-scenes look at some of her celebrity work, and we came up with a regular video series called On the Road with Monae. She will showcase some of the techniques she uses on curly celebrities.

Everett’s first video showcases her work with Jasmine Cephas Jones to get her curls looking great for her promo shots for her upcoming press tour for her movie “Blindspotting.” Jones made her mark as part of the original cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical “Hamilton.” Everett shows off her techniques to get defined, voluminous curls.
