Lacy Redway is the woman behind some of the most famously gorgeous hair on the planet (Tessa Thompson, Anne Hathaway, and Zazie Beetz, to name a few). Redway’s skill sets her apart, but the fact that she focuses her incredible imagination on all hair textures—from kinky and coarse to straight and fine—is what makes her one of the most sought-after talents in high-fashion hair. Listening to Redway’s electric wisdom on everything from hair to institutional racism and sexism had us on the edge of our seats. We talked about how the ability to read the room is a key to success, how being an immigrant can shape you in positive ways, and why veering off the expected path can boost your confidence and help you blossom professionally. She’s also got brilliant hair tips: how to get shiny, healthy hair at home; the best way to blow-dry (and why you should never do it in the bathroom); and so much more.
