On this episode, we chat with celebrity stylist Vernon François about about all things textured and natural hair, how he fell in love with hairstyling (hint: it has to do with mops), and some of the biggest challenges he's had to overcome, such as growing up with dyslexia and red hair. He drops major wisdom about your strands—and just life in general. You must check out the Teen Vogue video in which he thanks his dyslexia and his photo in Thomas Knight's Red Hot 100 photo book and ongoing exhibition.
Before that, we test out Kim Kardashian West's Crystal Gardenia fragrance on our new—still unnamed—fragrance -sniffing segment (email us to suggest a name for it!) ; give advice on how to reduce the appearance of stretch marks; and discuss how to clean gross-looking hairbrushes.
Below are all the products, people, and brands mentioned on the show. If you have any questions (or just want to shoot us a hey!) feel free to reach out to us on Instagram, Twitter or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
