Before Styled by June. Before her turban line. Before something else monumental, I loved June Ambrose.
Perhaps you remember when I met her at a fashion event last fall. I totally bartered with the Essence magazine photographer: “You can totally take a pic of me…um, but will you introduce me to June? I like, love her.”
Minutes later it happened. She took a look at me in my vintage coat and said, “Girrrrrrl, you got me tonight. I spit on you…puh“. True story.
When I found out that my super-talented, celebrity hair stylist friend, Shedelle Holmes, created June’s luscious waves for the CFDA awards this week, I had to get the scoop for us:
Shedelle’s inspiration: “June is, of course, a trendsetter and I wanted her to be the ‘eye catcher’ of the night so that meant her hair had to make a statement. My inspiration behind June’s voluminous waves was the late Donna Summer.
Oh and here I am stepping and repeating with Ms. Ambrose last fall. No biggie.
