“My hair is the longest it’s been in over a decade. A lot of that is because I have an amazing hairstylist in Vernon François,” she previously shared. “Now I love my hair. I love it because I’ve also been able to really embrace the stuff it can do. It’s like clay in the right hands. Clay can be dirt in the wrong hands, but clay can be art in the right hands. Being able to have that kind of playtime with Vernon to create different things has inspired me.”
