THE EMERGING AND FADING of trends is a natural and essential part of the beauty industry because that’s what looks do—change and evolve. Case in point? Sassoon’s precision cut. Even now, hairdressers continue to perfect the asymmetrical bob and clients continue to request ’60s-infl uenced, lash-grazing fringe. Styles come and go, but classics endure.

The texture category is no different. From Lorde’s wild waves to Lupita Nyong’o’s cropped ’fro and Solange Knowles’ spiral ringlets—no matter what’s in or out, clients still want to know how to get the look. But despite the growing popularity of curls, coils and waves, stylists and clients still struggle with textured hair.

The runways at Fashion Week, the editorial pages of magazines and red carpets certainly inspire—but where do curlies go for help? Are you ready to assist? Up to date on the latest treatments and techniques?

At the epicenter of the texture community are a group of passionate and web-savvy curl enthusiasts who are impacting clients’ lives daily by reporting on what’s hot, what’s not, what works and what’s next through YouTube tutorials, product blogs, Pinterest boards, and Facebook and Instagram posts.

In this issue of texture!, we celebrate the infl uencers all around us and the tastemakers who are setting the curl trends— the bloggers and vloggers who are trying out products, recreating looks and sharing their stories. With a combined total of more than 1 million loyal followers, it’s certain that they aredoing something right. Take note and use this opportunity to learn their points of view, merge your expertise and insert a professional recommendation into your consultation conversations with clients. We promise it will be worth it.
