22 • THE ARTISAN SPRING 2019 Styling Black-ish I have been Department Head Hair for the TV series Black-ish since the pilot. I wanted to create a look that has never been seen on television, but would be admired by the hair styling community and others across the world. Growing up, I adored the hair styles worn on The Cosby Show. I wanted to create the same nostalgia for today's America. After numerous meetings with the executive producers and the creator of our show, I was able to breathe "hair life" into the Johnsons. Over the past five seasons, my team and I have literally created hair trends and duplicated many iconic-period hair styles. I'm proud to share my thinking process in creating hair styles for our family, the Johnsons. B Y A R A X I L I N D S E Y DEPARTMENT HEAD HAIR This page: Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.
