With her busy schedule, we managed to catch up with the rising star for a shoot and talk about all things hair and beauty. Tran served old school Hollywood waves and a long, sleek high pony in the spread shot by photographer John Ricard. Keep reading to find out her hair must-haves and what hair and makeup advice she thinks all hairnistas should follow.


Hype Hair: How do you maintain your hair?
Karreuche Tran: I try not to put too much heat on my hair because it kills my curls. I also do hair oil treatments to keep the moisture.

HH: Name five of your must-have hair products.
Hair oil treatment, serum, hairspray, a good round brush for blowdrying and a good flat iron.

HH: How do you feel about wigs and weaves?
KT: I think they’re fun! I used to wear weaves when I was growing my hair back. After a while I kind of got tired of the maintenance. Wigs are cool and they’re so easy and fast. I recently wore one on the carpet at the BET Awards and I loved it!

HH: What’s the best advice you can share for hair?
KT: Take care of your hair. Keep it moisturized, especially if you have curly hair. Try not to use too much heat – and try not to dye it too much. I’ve had a bad experience with going way too light and it completely damaged my hair.
