On Wednesday nights my guilty pleasure is Empire.  Great acting, engaging story lines,  and good music, but… another thing that keeps me coming back is Serayah.  Serayah McNeil is the lovely singer and actress who plays Tiana on Empire.  Not only is she talented, but her hair is just gorgeous and I think she is my new hair crush.  Yes I admit, I tune in to look at her natural hair styles.

Serayah graciously shared her hair care routine with us.  She keeps it simple with 5 basic steps:

Serayah’s curly mane is full of luscious curls that she rocks in various hair styles.  Wouldn’t you love to recreate some of her looks on your natural hair?  Check out the pictures and tips for creating some of the curly hair styles you see “Tiana” wear on Empire.
