Carol’s Daughter’s spokeswomen are getting to work in their new role. While sitting with founder Lisa Price, Cassie, Selita Ebanks and Solange discuss the perception of “good” hair.
My family is very cultural. The woman in my family go from the brightest vanilla to the chocolately chocolate and all of our hair textures vary. Growing up, I had an identity crisis because I’m so light skin so I use to envy the girls when we were in the bathroom and they were able to wrap their hair with no pins, so I thought it was something wrong with my hair.-Selita Ebanks
From the time I was born until I was 12 years old my hair was pin straight and I prayed every night that I could have [curly] hair like my mom. She’d press it out, she’d have her beautiful curls when we’d go to the beach. As soon as I hit puberty, I got that curl and now it’s going back the other way. I always wanted that and I had it for one moment of my life — Cassie
Cutting my hair, it doesn’t even feel brave but it was funny to see the social response and their interpretation of what a hair cut or hair change means. A hair cut, color, all of those things to me is just an outlet of expression. — Solange
We may be off base here, but it appears that Steve Stoute and Lisa Price only meant diversity in hair when they chose this group of women for Carol’s Daughter’s “Beauty in Diversity” campaign…and quite frankly even that’s a stretch.
