“I am thrilled to be the face of Alex Anthony Salon and known as their ‘Curly Connoisseur,’” said Ms. Cohen. “Alex, Allison and I share a passion for making people feel and believe in their natural beauty and intend to spread the curly love with their brand to salons across America.
“I struggled with my hair when I was younger and I never knew which products to use or how to use them,” she said. “Once I finally embraced my naturally curly hair, I became more me and accepting of myself. I want to help every curly girl out there love their curls and natural texture, whatever that may be. This is the hair you were meant to have, now own it. Celebrate it. I’m happy to be supporting Gilda’s Club and Breast Cancer Month. Alex Anthony Salon is EVERY girls’ solution!”
