Hype Hair Unveils Double Cover Featuring Cynthia Bailey and 2014 Model Search Winner

Hype Hair Double Cover: Cynthia Bailey & Tabbrea WalkerWe’re seeing double on our April/May 2015 issue! Hype Hair magazine has revealed its first-ever double cover issue featuring modeling icon and reality-tv maven Cynthia Bailey and its 2014 Hype Hair Model Search winner, Tabbrea Walker.

Bailey, who currently stars on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, has parlayed her rising public profile to build her own empire, The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, where she trains and prepares aspiring models for success in the beauty industry.

This past fall, Hype Hair partnered with Bailey’s agency to conduct a national search for its first annual Hype Hair Model Search. Scores of women applied and attended the competition in Atlanta judged by Bailey, Hype Hair‘s editor-in-chief Adrienne Moore, celebrity hairstylist Derek J and celebrity photographer Derek Blanks.


Of the seven finalists, Walker stood out as a fresh face and even earned a coveted spot on the cover shot by Derek Blanks. She also will receive a modeling contract with The Bailey Agency. Inside the issue, Walker talks about her experience in the competition, advice for model hopefuls and her future goals.

Bailey also took some time out to chat about her beauty regimen and how she’s managed to say flawless since bursting onto the modeling scene in the early 1990’s.

One of her tips? “Use a daily exfoliator. It gets rid of dead skin and makes your skin look like you just had a facial.”

Walker’s winning cover will be available digitally and mailed to all of our print subscribers. Bailey’s cover will also be available digitally and will hit newsstands April 7.
