As a member of the beauty industry, I'd like to apologise to my fellow frizzy-haired girls. Between the months of May and August, so many brands and editors tell us that our gloriously fuzzy strands need taming. (August is even "Anti-Frizz month," if you can believe it.) The message is loud and clear: Frizz is a pesky problem and must be fought — fast.
But I'm here to offer an alternative narrative — one in which girls who have coarse, curly, fuzzy, wavy, natural textures get to rock the gorgeous hair they've got. Because our locks aren't a problem to be fixed. They're a gift to be embraced, dammit!
With all of this in mind, we tapped Jeanie Syfu, a hair extraordinaire and Tresemmé spokesperson who is a mainstay backstage at fashion shows. Syfu adores frizz — just take a peek at some of the incredible hairstyles she's created.
And since frizz isn't reserved for one hair type, we picked two girls with completely different textures; Djenice has a head of coarse, natural spirals, while Alexa has thick, looser waves. We asked Syfu to create three styles on each woman — and the results are nothing short of spectacular.
