Celebrity stylist KIYAH WRIGHT has the touch—working her magic (styling) wand on sexy stunners like CIARA, TYRA BANKS and KERRY WASHINGTON.
Emmy award winning stylist KIYAH WRIGHT started her career as a youngster—and on the sly.
“My interest in hair began at a very early age when I would sneak girls from school into my house, do their hair and give them a makeover,” chuckles WRIGHT.
“My mother eventually decided to put me in hair school. My real big break came from Sean Combs who actually approached me—he wanted his artists to have hair like mine.”
Under the rap mogul’s wing, WRIGHT began to develop looks for MARY J. BLIGE and FAITH EVANS. Next? Working “The Wright Way” on her loyal clientele at the Warren-Tricomi salon in NYC, along with padding an A-list styling résumé with names like IMAN, BRANDY, GABRIELLE UNION, JENNIFER HUDSON and SERENA WILLIAMS.
Then, the star stylist snagged a gig which she dubs a “career highlight”—working with TYRA BANKS—which garnered two Emmy trophies.
After years of managing manes and emphasizing the importance of image, WRIGHT still enjoys clients makeovers, or as she says, “revealing and effectively translating a woman’s beauty, both inside and out.” Here, the hair guru gives us the low-down on a couple of her most recent looks, as well as some of her fav tools and products. — CRYSTAL FENTONRelated Posts
