Celebrity hairstylist Monaè Everett can now add award-winning to her lengthy list of credentials. The industry vet won the Celebrity Hairstylist Of The Year award this weekend at the 2019 New York City Hair and Beauty Awards.
Monaè was among a select group of top New York-based hairstylists, salons and beauty bosses recognized at the inaugural awards ceremony Sunday night.
Over the past two decades, Monaè has gained international renown as a texture expert and “hair fixer,” elevating red carpet looks for a who’s who list of celebrities — including the likes of Sonequa Martin-Green, Yara Shahidi, Daniella Perkins, Danai Guirira, Dawn Lyen-Gardner, Tia Mowry, Priah Ferguson, H.E.R., and Indya Moore — and working behind-the-scenes for editorial shoots, landing cover after cover. She is also a regular contributing expert to Hype Hair and other hair and beauty publishers.
“I feel blessed to be able to live a life where my creativity can be used to make my client feel beautiful — inside and out,” Monaè told Hype Hair. “It’s a high-stress environment that is seldom acknowledged and it feels wonderful to be acknowledged by my peers and the public.”
