26 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2018 Trendsetters/Hollywood Scene Picture Perfect CHARLEY GALLAY/GETTY IMAGES; STEFANIE KEENAN/GETTY IMAGES; PAUL ARCHULETA/GETTY IMAGES; STEVE GRANITZ/GETTY IMAGES; GP IMAGES WIREIMAGE; EARL GIBSON LLL/GETTY IMAGES; VERNON HEADSHOT: AMARPAUL KALIRAI Celebrity stylist Vernon François shares the inspiration behind our top tress picks from Amandla Stenberg. Actress Amandla Stenberg isn't afraid to play with shapes and colors when she struts the red carpet. From rockin' bantu knots to showing off her natural locks, the The Hate U Give star gives us plenty of styles to love. Beauty Launchpad's Jasmine Brown got the 411 from Stenberg's longtime stylist Vernon François (@vernonfrancois) on the many hair highs she has graced us with this year. Vernon François STEFANIE KEENAN/GETTY IMAGES; PAUL ARCHULETA/GETT "I was after a modern, chic fi nish to go with this beautiful classic outfi t, so I found string in my kit and woveit between box braids Amandla already had while carefully considering the shape of her face to ensure I got the color balance right." "Amandla and I sought to create something clean with height and texture, so I added a few cornrows off to the sides with a high bun." "This was a very 'lady in red' moment. I gave Amandla a looseblowout to keep her look clean, fresh and young. I used Vernon François Leave~In Conditioner to blow-dry, thenfollowed with Aveda Brilliant Anti- Humectant Pomade before fl at-ironing. Lastly, I used a small amount of Kevin.Murphy Night. Rider for a little hold." "I wanted to achieve a dramatic ponytail with a lot of movement. I'm always looking to create something a little bit different, so I used red shoelaces for a more abstract yet fun style in the back." "We called this style the 'knotted braid.' The look was extremely fun to do because I let my brain go wild and came up with this beautiful creation. Amandla loves color, so it was exciting to see all the shades come together." "We'd been wanting to do a look with bantu knots (also known as China bumps). I gathered eight to 12 sections of hair and added extensions for a more dramatic fl air."
