Hair Mavens: Sydney Tamiia Poitier

I think we’re past due for a new edition to Hair Mavens :

So kudos to Sydney Tamiia Poitier

As if Sidney Poitier being your father isn’t fabulous enough, this hair maven carries around more than just the acting legacy of her  pops. In case you hadn’t noticed, she rocks a mane that goes on for days (and yes, ITS HERS). Her acting roster isn’t too shabby either. This 5′ 11” natural beauty has touted notable roles, from the big screen (Grindhouse) to network dramas, like Knight Rider and Joan of Arcadia.

Here, I’d usually have a segment that reveals some beauty tips or hair regimens from Ms. Poitier….but this sista was pretty elusive! I decided to add her to the roster regardless of my failure to dig up the goods :>

Hopefully, her mane can give us a heightened sense of mystery and self-motivation.

After all, other manes may inspire you, but you should never love a head of hair — or learn to nurture one —  like your own!

    I love her hair.

    See that should show people that it’s possible to grow your own hair! ;-D

    If she ain’t a hair testament…I don’t know who is??

    Let not forget people, if you didn’t already know, having a mane like Miss Sydney isn’t unrealistic or hard to grow when you are bi-racial.

      mmm….true, but some biracial hair is just as susceptible to damage (or just as fragile) as any other kinky/curly texture.

      It really depends on each individual’s texture- and how they’ve grown accustomed to styling/treating their hair.

      I do catch your drift, however :)
