In its first issue dedicated to hair, ESSENCE highlights the unique relationship between African-American women and their hair with the launch of HOT HAIR, an interactive experience covering all things hair — from root to tip — for African-American women. This special issue covers all of the beauty needs, questions, concerns and triumphs of African-American hair care and style.
That’s what the press release says, but do we really need another hair magazine? How many Black professional women really flip through them anyway to select a hair style?
I’m not entirely against the new magazine. But flipping through the first issue, I was not impressed. I know I can’t go into the office looking like a peacock? Too many angles, too many colors. Although I really loved some of the looks. I did learn the difference between remi hair and store bought packaged hair. Now, I’m a savvy customer.
The beauty team at Essence is amazing! I was even more excited about the eye makeup one the models. They all looked terriffic.
Let me know what you think about the magazine.
