I have a confession to make. When I walked into an interview at a high-profile fashion magazine publishing company with my natural hair curls in a mini fro, I was scared my hairstyle would cost me the job. At some of the more successful fashion magazines, the staff all looks the same: thin, tall, beautiful and white with pin-straight hair.
Simone Tetteh, booking associate for American Vogue, is one of the few employees at high fashion magazines who don’t fit that limiting standard of beauty. Responsible for booking makeup artists and hairstylists for photo shoots, Tetteh has a look that is unique, effortless and striking.
With hair done by Anthony Dickey of Hair Rules salon and makeup by Alice Lane, Tetteh was photographed for one work week in looks she wore each day. She has an affinity for trendy labels like Opening Ceremony, Equipment, Topshop, Theory and H&M, and wears her natural hair in pinned or braided updos.
