Smith tells me that working with both Rosheuvel and Amarteifio on the Queen Charlotte press tour — creating a diverse array of hair looks for TV, magazine shoots and the red carpet —  helped reaffirm her “mission” to promote the versatility of Black hair. In the celebrity circuit, Smith has become sought after for her work on natural textured hair after her first major client, Venus Williams, discovered Smith’s work from a Pinterest page, and went on to have her hair styled for Wimbledon. Smith, who started her 20-year career after establishing a salon in London, has since gone on to do the hair of Regina King, Danielle Deadwyler, Lashana Lynch and other Black British celebrities such as Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and presenters Clara Amfo and Julie Adenuga.
