Alicia Keys’ Hairstylist Shows You How to Recreate Her Braided Topknot

Posted on

Alicia Keys might have stopped wearing makeup over the past year, but she definitely hasn’t stopped working on her hair game. Along with her bare face and freckles, the The Voice host is still rocking cool afros, her signature head scarves and fun topknots.

And just in time for summer, her go-to hairstylist and Pantene’s celebrity stylist Chuck Amos, is showing us exactly how to recreate one of our favorite braided topknots that he’s styled on the star, in order to celebrate the brand’s “All Strong Hair is Beautiful Hair” campaign, which aims to empower women to embrace their natural every day.
