New Book: “Natural & Curly Hair for Dummies”
Celebrity hair stylist Johnny Wright announced his first book in partnership with the bestselling For Dummies series: Natural & Curly Hair for Dummies.
The book helps readers on their natural and curly hair journey by taking them through the biological basics of natural and curly hair. Johnny Wright shares his favorite personal product recommendations and provides insider professional tips for protecting and maintaining healthy hair. He goes beyond practical how-to steps and dos and don’ts and offers his book, Natural & Curly Hair for Dummies, as a space for the curly and natural hair community. The book is an instruction manual, but also a style maven, and a life guide that centers the curly and natural hair community in the spotlight.
Wright continues, "Beauty is really about reflecting our power in all aspects of ourselves, including our hair, without hiding or feeling shame. With this book, I am here to help people embrace their natural beauty in all its glory and build our community up."
Johnny Wright plans to embark on a nationwide book tour in 2023, teaching and guiding readers and consumers on the importance of caring for their natural and curly hair.

The book is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Thriftbooks and wherever books and eBooks are sold.
