Celebrity News

Your edges are a national treasure that should be protected (and slayed) at all costs. A trend that transcends far beyond the 99s and 2000s, stars like Chilli, LaToya Jackson, and Sylvia Robison have all shown us how laying your baby hairs can take a look from simple to sultry with nothing more than a toothbrush and your favorite edge control and Alicia Keys and her stylist brought all of that energy to Grammys red carpet.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Alicia's stylist, Nai'vasha broke down how she and Alicia came up with the award show host's hairstyles for the evening, and according to her, baby hair was non-negotiable. She explained:

"I wanted to celebrate authentic 'Alicia'. She's iconic for braids. However, I wanted to create a fresh approach and modern twist to her custom '90s-inspired Versace wardrobe. We wanted the crystals to look as if they were floating in the hair. Alicia and I are obsessed with glorious baby hairs. Our vision was to have the hair dazzle with the lights, camera, and action of the night."

Alicia and her stylist aren't the only ones on the baby hair bandwagon. Celebrities like FKA Twigs, Saweetie, and Yara Shahidi have all taken an old school trend and made it their own and we have all the inspiration you need to get your edges all the way together for the weekend.
