Winning Hair Care: Get Red Carpet Ready With Coco

This partnership is giving #winning. Carol’s Daughter[h][i] has teamed up with tennis prodigy Coco Gauff. You heard right: THE Coco Gauff, winner of 7 WTA Tour singles titles, including her first major at the 2023 US Open. What drew us to Coco is that she doesn’t just serve with her tennis skills; she also serves with her hairstyles! Like more people in her generation, Coco confidently embraces her natural texture, whether her hair is in a protective style or worn down to show off her curls. Her enthusiasm for sporting natural hair, which challenges traditional beauty standards, inspires others to take pride in their curls and coils. With her poise, strength and unique style, Coco Gauff is a true role model.

Coco was an honoree at the 2024 TIME Women of the Year Gala, which celebrated exceptional leaders working to create a more promising future for women. Coco stood out in a crystal-embroidered Prada gown, natural makeup and — our favorite — a hairstyle that put her curls on display.

Celebrity hairstylist Dharius Thomas gave Coco a half-up, half-down look with goddess vibes. Using Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Leave-In Conditioner, the NEW Black Vanilla Moisture & Hold Jelly and the Goddess Strength 7 Oil Blend Scalp & Hair Oil, Dhairius ensured Coco’s curls were shiny and moisturized and her style was set in place. Diamond pins, which matched her bejeweled gown, amped up the glam.

Get the Look

Follow the 3 easy steps below to get your curls as bouncy and defined as Coco’s.

Step 1: Hydrate and reset your curls.

Dhairius prepped Coco’s hair with Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Leave-In Conditioner. “This spray is perfect for curls on the go and adds instant hydration,” he said. A must-have for dry, dull, brittle hair, Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Leave-In Conditioner strengthens and detangles with a blend of Soy Protein and Pro-vitamin B5. It’s a lightweight leave-in that can refresh locs, braids and protective styles.

Step 2: Define your curls.

Dharius used our NEW Black Vanilla Moisture & Hold Jelly to sculpt Coco’s curls — and it’s no surprise why. With 72 hours of hold and up to 48 hours of frizz control, Black Vanilla Moisture & Hold Jelly is the ultimate styling product! Whether you’re at a gala, casual event, or any place else, it’ll come through for your ‘do, keeping your style in place all day and then some.

Step 3: Add shine and moisture.

Dhairius finished the look by applying Goddess Strength 7 Oil Blend Scalp & Hair Oil to her braids and roots. The hair oil, aka his holy grail for added shine and moisture, is made with Sunflower Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Linseed Oil, Castor Oil and Soybean Oil. The nozzle tip makes application a breeze. “My favorite thing to do is put a small amount of the oil in my palm, then rub my hands together and polish the entire look,” he said.
