Ebony: The new doll head with textured hair about to take the industry by storm.
Ebony is stunning looking hair styling doll from the award-winning celebrity hairstylist, Dionne Smith, as part of her Dionne Smith’s new Signature Collection.
The professional hairstylist and the founder, Dionne Smith, says, “traditionally there has been one stumbling block for those looking to strengthen their technique when it comes to Afro hairstyling: a lack of dolls available with kinky, coily texture.
She says, ” Ebony is here to offer budding stylists the opportunity to enhance their skills with the help of a doll with an authentic-looking hair texture that mimics the feel and consistency of 4A Afro hair.
Also explaining why she launched the Afro-textured hair styling mannequin, The award-winning celebrity hairstylist, Dionne Smith said; “When I started out as a hairdresser, I didn’t have the option to learn how to style on an Afro-textured doll training head, we were really limited to straight hair types”
“With the natural hair movement continuing to grow, so many of us are embracing our natural hair texture. I wanted to make things easier for those who are in the early stages of their hairdressing journey.”
“Ebony, however, appeals to everyone really: professional stylists who are really keen to learn how to style Afro hair, hair influencers who are trying to up their game, and even parents who want to learn how to style their daughters’/sons’ hair without any fuss. I’m really proud of Ebony. I really think this product will provide everyone with the chance to practice styling Afro hair, and crucially, people can learn at their own pace”.
This is the debut hair product range from Dionne, who has over 20 years worked with an impressive roster of celebrity clients including Venus Williams, Regina King, and TV personality Amber Rose Gill, and is now ready to help others enhance their skills with great products.
