face. I usually wear this hairstyle when I go to industry events and need to be fierce. -Milena Prinzi All Things Hair US.

Soe Kabbabe, All Things Hair US.

Natural red hair with long, loose waves! I’m convinced I was born with the wrong hair color! My hair is light brown but I dye it auburn. -Soe Kabbabe All Things Hair US.

I love two side ponys. I like how childish and girly this style is, but at the same time radiates strength. It’s an “I don’t care what do you think of ME style.” I admire when women wear it with leather accessories, dark clothing, and hard styling.

Erin Mizuta, All Things Hair Brasil.

Yes! Despite having different lengths, styles, and colors, my hair always shows that I’m half Asian – and specifically that, not totally Asian. I love it! It’s part of who I am and my family’s history. -Erin Mizuta, All Things Hair Brasil.

My hair is a huge part of my identity. As an Orthodox Jewish married woman, I cover my hair with a wig or scarf when I leave my house. This choice reminds me of my commitment to my marriage and my religion and the belief that hair is holy. When I’m home, I uncover my hair, spray some dry shampoo for volume, and wear it naturally wavy. My hair reminds me of my heritage and the legacy of a long line of Jewish women before me both when it’s covered and when I’m wearing it out at home. -Miriam Herst-Stein.

iwd 2021 marisa

Yes! My hair matches my mood, so whenever I’m feeling discouraged I try to color it or style it. Having great hair is more than a trendy hairstyle. It empowers me to be and feel better. -Soe Kabbabe.
