Freeform’s Grown-ish has the absolute best natural hairstyles on TV (aside from Insecure, that is).
Sky and Jazz Forster tend to rock their signature locs but Zoey Johnson likes to switch up her hair, with a new hairstyle every week.
Zoey has worn some truly incredible natural hairstyles from cornrows to braided ponytails to hair puffs.
And the woman behind it all? Hair genius Tinisha Meeks.
“I tried to go according to character, so, for Yara, she’s very trendy and is supposed to be really fashion-forward, so I tried to keep her looks more innovative.”
According to Tinisha, Yara isn’t a fan of straightening her hair or using heat tools so the hairstylist tries to keep the looks as natural as possible.
And although a lot of the hairstyles look complex, Tinisha insists that she designed each look to be easy to recreate in 45 minutes or less. She said,
“The easiest so far is the two braided look with one down the middle (season 1, episode 6). I’ve seen a lot of people recreate that one.”
When styling Yara’s hair as Zoey, Tinisha loves to use SheaMoisture products. She explained,
“Always keep your hair moisturized, always keep your hair conditioned, and make sure you tie it up at night. If you do those things, you won’t have as much breakage and your hair will love you back.”
Below, we’ve compiled Zoey’s best hair looks from the best few seasons, how to recreate them, and exactly what products to use.
