Hype Hair: What are you ladies currently working on, and are there any other projects you are doing on your own that we should be on the lookout for?
Normani Kordei: I’m currently in the recording process with the girls. We have been focused and dedicated to making this next album very special. We’re blessed to be working with some of the hottest producers and songwriters in the music industry. As for me, personally, I’m working on other interests that inspire me. I can’t give you anything specific just yet but I can tell you this: I’m very excited for the future and what it has in store.
HH: Do you have any favorite go-to hairstyles and hair inspirations?
NK: I am extremely adventurous when it comes to hair. I experiment with color and texture, but one of my favorite styles would be a high, slicked, super chic ponytail. Nicki Minaj-inspired!
HH: What hair products do you use for the care of your natural hair?
NK: I am so particular about my hair. I’ve tried various products in the past, but I’m currently using Cream of Nature Sulfate Free Moisture & Shine Shampoo with Argan Oil, Cream of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment with Argan Oil, and Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner and Blow Drying Lotion.
HH: What is your daily hair care routine?
NK: Being in the entertainment industry and having your hair styled just about every day can be very harsh on the hair. There are not too many stylists that I’ve come across that I trust with my hair. When it comes to my hair, it requires high maintenance.
I have to give thanks to one of the caretakers of my hair, celebrity hairstylist Randy Stodghill, who’s based in LA. Along with Randy, my other two stylists Arjuane Broussard and Adrienne Bridges, who are based in my hometown Houston, are the reason my hair remains healthy to this day. They make sure that my hair is getting the proper care that it needs – down to deep conditioning and mask treatments and limiting the use of heat on my hair.
HH: We love your beauty looks for the red carpet and stage, but what are some of your day-to-day beauty must-haves?
NK: When it comes to must-have beauty products, I have to have my lip moisturizer and body butter. For my hair, because it’s all natural, my edge control. Just keeping it real!
