Adina Porter

For Adina’s look, we were inspired by the African Queen Nefertiti.

To create Adina’s look, I first shampooed and conditioned the hair. Next, I applied a dime-sized amount of heat protector serum and blow dried her hair using the FHI Heat Platform Nano Salon Pro 2000 hair dryer.

Next, I used the FHI Heat Platform 3/4” Curling Iron to create texture in her hair. I sectioned the hair into 3 ponytails and wrapped Indique Organic Curl around the ponytails.  Then, I used hairspray to set and brushed the hair into a faux hawk. To finish, I created fishtail textured braids and made large Bantu style knots.


Taraji P Henson

To create Taraji’s look, I prepped her hair with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, then added mousse before using the FHI Heat Platform Nano Salon Pro 2000 hair dryer to diffuse and set the curl.

I took random sections and wrapped the hair around an FHI Heat Platform 3/4 inch curling iron to define the curl pattern.

In addition to all the FHI tools used, also prepped Taraji P. Henson’s hair with Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner I finished the look by creating a low messy braid, making it really textured with some face-framing tendrils. My inspiration was a whimsical fairytale which had a lot to do with the dress. The dress is very detailed with flowers. So so beautiful!
