You may know him as Lupita Nyong’o’s talented hairstylist, but Vernon François creates products for all hair types from kinky to damaged. And they're now available at Sephora

It was a grey morning when we received a package from haircare and styling brand Vernon François that was an instant mood enhancer. Inside were key products from the brand’s prestige collection including the Re-Vamp Mid Length Repair Cream and the Whipped Deep Conditioner, as well as a wide tooth comb. After one too many rounds of bleaching, our tresses were in dire need of some TLC, and the brand was like a godsend. Furthermore it also offers solutions for more ‘alternative’ hair types that are often neglected in the market, such as coily, kinky and curly hair in its other ranges.


If you're not familiar with François he's the go-to hair genius for women in Hollywood particularly shining starlets who happen to be women of colour like Lupita Nyong'o and Ruth Negga. You may have seen his work on the press trail for Black Panther as well as at the Oscars and major galas like the Met. Most recently he impressed with an astonishing braided look on Nyong'o on the cover of Allure. In fact François' work singlehandedly challenges the notion that coily and kinky hair, as he calls it, can't be as versatile as straight or wavy textures.



The haircare and styling brand started by Francois in September 2016 has finally launched in Sephora Singapore's online store this year. Products from each of the five, colour coordinated ranges, that treat particular hair textures are available. So if you happen to be someone who has afro hair, or you need a conditioner that really works on your curly locks, give this range a try. Symbols on each of the products will tell you what hair textures they work on, making it super easy to diagnose what your mane needs.

From $24 to $55. Available at Sephora.
