Even in the face of her recent Lupus flare-ups, R&B icon Toni Braxton continues to hit her slay mark every time she hits the stage. The singing force kicked off her US “The Hits” tour last week, with perfectly tousled tresses to give a show-stopping performance.

Her stylist Marie Brown gave us a inside look into hair hair prep and how she created the fabulous look before Toni’s Detroit opener.
Toni is known for rocking flawless custom units, and this look was no exception. Marie first prepped the unit by washing with MIZANI True TexturesMoisture Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner to cleanse the hair of any chemical residue, hydrate and soften the hair cuticles.
Once clean, she used MIZANI 25 Miracle Milk as a leave in conditioner. “The leave-in helps to provide shine and body while also acting as a heat protectant for the hair strands,” said Marie.
She then wet roller set the unit with foam wrap and let the hair dry under a hooded dryer. Once dry, Marie removed the rollers to create loose, bouncy curls, finishing with a light holding spray and oil sheen.
Slay, Toni! Slay!
Toni is definitely an inspiration as she continues her US tour while battling the autoimmune disease that has forced her to postpone a show this past weekend. “I am so excited about going back on the road and seeing all of my wonderful fans and friends,” said Braxton. “Everyone’s life is complicated and this is just a condition that I live with.”
