She’s a soul sensation and Wolverhampton’s Beverley Knight is also an ambassador for L’Oréal’s MIZANI haircare range (because she’s worth it!).
She reveals to Native Monster her hair must-haves and secrets…
How and why did you become the face of MIZANI?
When I tried the brand I was totally sold. It exemplifies everything that I’m about; freedom, movement and sleekness. The MIZANI woman is a strong woman; she knows her own mind. She knows where she is going. She is quite typically a powerful woman but not overpowering. She is confident, she is fun, she holds herself beautifully.
What products do you swear by?
My favourite treatment at the moment is the H2O Intense Night-Time Treatment (RRP £9.80); it works like an absolute dream. Put it on overnight, wake up, magic hair. It’s light but intense at the same time. Another must-have is MIZANI Thermasmooth Smooth Guard Smoothing Serum (100ml, RRP £12.90); I can’t be without it.
What is your hair care regime?
Usually I wash and condition my hair with MIZANI Thermasmooth Shampoo (250ml, RRP £10.25) and MIZANI Thermasmooth Conditioner (250ml, RRP £10.25) no less than once a week (it MUST be done!) and I get deep conditioning treatments every two weeks.
What’s your beauty ethos now?
My belief is you should work with what you’ve got. Enhance what you’ve been given because that’s what makes you unique.
Who is your beauty icon?
Like most girls, I look to my mum. She’s still gorge now. When I was little, I wished I looked my sister. I thought she was so beautiful! I’m happy with me now but I still think she’s so beautiful. Also Naomi Campbell, prior to her there was only one or two women of colour modelling, then she came along and took over the world.
Tried and tested:
We tried out the Thermasmooth Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo gives a great lather and the rich conditioner went on like a dream. After blow-drying using the Denman Thermoceramic Straightening Brush (£11.22, www.denmanbrush.com) our hair was soft and smooth. Well worth investing in.
