Decades later, Grace Jones, Tina Turner and Josephine Baker's iconic hairstyles are still awe-inspiring. In the new short film, Hair Icon, hair care brand Beautiful Textures takes us behind the scenes of their New York Fashion Week dinner, which served to honor African American hair icons. Produced by Special Boy Films and shot at Manhattan's Mondrian SoHo hotel, the film features Michaela Angela Davis, Jessica White, Bridget Kelly, Amanda Seales, RaVaughn, Demetria Lucas Tai Beauchamp and Justine Skye. The conversational piece explores the influence of Black hair icons, along with the new found freedom of natural hair.
