Singer Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony has been dancing and singing since the tender age of four. While growing up in Houston, she could often be seen competing in various competitions where she picked up countless awards and accolades, and even became a finalist in the Miss Texas pageant.

But her rise to fame quickly accelerated when she was discovered on the hugely popular television show The X Factor where she met the other four members of Fifth Harmony. Shortly after the group was formed, the ladies were quickly signed to a record deal, and under the tutelage of star-makers Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid, they recorded their first full-length album Reflection. The rest, as they say, is history!

Along with Normani’s amazing vocal prowess and show-stopping dance moves, the multi-talented star also boasts fabulous hair flair. We had the chance to chat with this lovely young lady about her incredible journey as a member of her hugely popular group, and got the scoop on her top hair care and beauty must-haves.


Hype Hair: Fifth Harmony is blowing up right now! What is it like being in this group of incredible young women?
Normani Kordei: I feel that at this point and time in my life I’m exactly where I am supposed to be. I learn more about myself every single day while being in the group. I find the five of us are so dynamic together. We individually have specific qualities within ourselves that challenge the others.

I love to learn, be inspired and expand my frame of mind through them. I appreciate times when we don’t necessarily agree on something and have creative conflict. When we’re in the studio, I love the challenge and passion that the room begins to fill with because from there, we create true magic. I love all forms of creativity and I adore what each of us brings to the table. I am so grateful to be a part of something greater than just myself. I’m truly having the time of my life.
