Catch Me Elsewhere
We had the opportunity to catch up with Monaé Everett, Key Hairstylist on the Lifetime movie, Seasons of Love, who shares the inside details of the hairstyles that she created for the ladies of the film.
Just to catch you up, Seasons of Love, kicks off Lifetime’s holiday films and debuts November 23 at 9/8c with star studded performances by Taraji P. Henson, Gladys Knight, LeToya Luckett, Cleo Anthony, Richard Portnow and Rob Riley.
The film centers around Kyla (LeToya Luckett, “Single Ladies”) and Amir’s (Cleo Anthony, “Divergent”) new romance which is thrown for a loop when Amir’s father (Richard Portnow) suddenly passes away and Kyla’s ex, Miles (Rob Riley, “Hit the Floor”), comes back into the picture. The two struggle to determine what truly matters to them in this story of life, love and family. Taraji P. Henson stars and executive produces, while Gladys Knight and Cliff “Method Man” Smith also star.
To match Taraji’s light hearted character, Jackie, needed a fun hairstyle to match. We styled her hair with Bumble and Bumble products to keep each style voluminous and touchable. The Defrizz kept her hair both smooth and bouncy.
Latoya plays a “no nonsense” career woman. To keep each strand in place I used a pomade to smooth her flyaways and the Redken Shine Flash spray to keep her mane shiny.
This family matriarch kept her short styles chic. Using a ¾ inch flat iron I beveled her hair into place. Her hair was coiffed with Redken Shine Flash spray and detailed with the Sebastian Reshaper Spray.
We kept Shannon whose character is Imani’s, enviable curls intact by using Devachan products. We started each day by cleansing with the No Poo, conditioning with the Heaven in Hair, and setting the curls with the Arc Angel gel. We added a braid in most scenes to highlight Imani’s romantic personality.
Ana’s hair was a huge aspect of Randi’s vivacious character. We used the Bumble and Bumble Defrizz and Schwarzkopf Grip mousse during her blow dry. Weather her hair was flat ironed pin straight or curled into big sexy waves, these added shape, hold, and volume to each style.
