HYPE HAIR: You are ALWAYS fabulous – your makeup, hair and wardrobe. Do you do it yourself or do you have a team?
Raye 6: I usually do it myself, but if it’s a major photo shoot or a really big show I’ll have Marcus Simms do it. We’re related and I always use the hashtag #afamilythatslaystogetherstaystogether when we work together.
HH: Who or what is your hair inspiration?
Raye: Right now, with my slicked back ponytail afro, I’m inspired by Diana Ross. My hair inspirations come from daily life. Fashion, nature, and black beauty from the ’70s.
