Eva Marcille Defends Her Traditional African Hairstyle That Critics Slammed Her For Wearing To Cynthia Bailey’s Wedding

Eva Marcille is a beauty who isn’t afraid to experiment whether it comes to fashion or hairstyling. After she wore a unique hairstyle to Cynthia Bailey‘s wedding, she has a message for close-minded critics.

Eva appeared in a beautiful white dress that hugged every curve of her body along with gold jewelry and an embellished towering hair bun.


Many people slammed her for the style itself and the fact that she would wear it as a bridesmaid to another person’s nuptials.

‘For a runway…absolutely. For someone else’s wedding…absolutely not,’ commented one.

‘Alllllllllll the loctitians in Atl… & this is what we come up with…,’ said another.

This person commented: ‘Eva could’ve pulled it back not sticking straight up like she was going to Whooville!!!!!’


There were people who came to her defense.

One person wrote: ‘People who keep talking about not liking her hair don’t know fashion. @evamarcille I LOVE YOUR HAIR style that way! It speaks to your personality and style and it looks bomb! This type of style is not for the faint of hearts. It’s for the out the box, eccentric and free spirited types.


And if @cynthiabailey felt some way about it, best believe a woman on her wedding day would have no hesitation saying so, lol. And you guys sound crazy asking her why she styled her hair that way. Obviously, it’s because she liked it that way. Girrrrl, don’t pay these basics no mind.’

Issa Rae Is Now the Co-Owner and Face of Sienna Naturals

To re-launch a brand with bigger and better products is one thing. But to return to the game with improved offerings and a big celebrity name is a feat very few beauty brands can brag about, especially when the said celebrity is none other than Issa Rae.

HBO’s hit show Insecure is known for its beautiful display of natural hairstyles thanks to creator and star Issa Rae. This week, the filmmaker announced she is now the co-owner and face of Sienna Naturals, a brand of natural hair care brand with clean ingredients.

Rae will join the team with founder and CEO Hannah Diop to work on expanding the collection and its customer base.

“I’ve known Hannah for a long time, and I got to see the brand evolve from her home. It’s expanded so much beyond that. The care and the research that has gone into this natural, safe, healthy brand, I knew that I wanted to be involved,” Rae said in a statement according to The Cut.

“We get coerced into manipulating our hair into styles not right for us or using damaging products,” Rae continued. “I have an opportunity to make hair care digestible via my sense of humor, my openness to my own hair struggle journey.”

Diop says she was happy to work with Rae and praised how she used Insecure to showcase the versatile beauty of Black hair.


“Sienna Naturals is not a company that is telling you how to wear your hair,” said Diop. “We believe in empowering our customers to be who they really are and have a product that supports them.”

Customers can add themselves to the waiting list to learn when the products will become available.
