Tracee Ellis Ross Pattern Beauty

 

From representing successful black women on the iconic Girlfriends to her lead role in ABC’s Black-ish, who doesn’t love Tracee Ellis Ross? Her gorgeous hair and on-point style that consistently delivers inspiring fashion moments that break the internet have made her the epitome of a woman who has carved out a life that is lush and resplendent. But beyond the aesthetic, Tracee is one of the co-founders of Time’s Up, an initiative she helped start with 300 of her peers in response to ongoing sexual harassment in Hollywood and the #MeToo movement.  She has added her voice to a host of social issues including pay disparity within the entertainment industry.

The award-winning actress, producer, and director, known for her gorgeous mane, is now venturing into haircare! Pattern Beauty caters specifically to kinky, tightly-coiled tresses that often get left behind in the natural hair world. If you’re a 3b to 4c hair type or have multiple hair patterns – this was straight up made for you. The brand launches on September 9 and we can’t wait, pretty birds. Be sure to visit the site and sign up for more information!

IF MY HAIR COULD TALK ~  oh, the stories it would tell. i can literally chronicle my journey of self-acceptance through my journey with my hair. growing up, society told me there was a right way to wear my hair and a right way to look. those ideals didn’t match what i saw in the mirror, so i tried to beat my curls into submission— putting body lotion in my hair, sleeping in rollers, blowouts, relaxers, texturizers, ponytails so tight they gave me a headache; and i even whipped out an iron (the kind you use for clothes) in an attempt to straighten it that way. trying to make my hair look “easy and breezy”, “bouncin’ and behavin’” actually had the opposite effect. my hair was broken, damaged, and tired of trying to be something that it wasn’t. i finally took the leap and stopped relaxing my curls, thereby beginning the healing journey towards loving my hair. it was a long road to knowing, understanding and, eventually, loving my curls. now i just let them be the happy little ringlets and zig zags of joy they want to be. if your hair could talk, what would it say? #fbf #hairlove

“If my hair could talk. Oh, the stories it would tell. 

I can literally chronicle my journey of self-acceptance through my journey with my hair. growing up, society told me there was a right way to wear my hair and a right way to look.

Those ideals didn’t match what I saw in the mirror, so I tried to beat my curls into submission— putting body lotion in my hair, sleeping in rollers, blowouts, relaxers, texturizers, ponytails so tight they gave me a headache; and I even whipped out an iron (the kind you use for clothes) in an attempt to straighten it that way. 

I was trying to make my hair look “easy and breezy”, “bouncin’ and behavin’” actually had the opposite effect.

My hair was broken, damaged, and tired of trying to be something that it wasn’t.

I finally took the leap and stopped relaxing my curls, thereby beginning the healing journey towards loving my hair. It was a long road to knowing, understanding and, eventually, loving my curls. Now? I just let them be the happy little ringlets and zigzags of joy they want to be. 

If your hair could talk, what would it say?”
