Queen Latifah has done everything – from singing, songwriting and rapping to modeling, comedy, producing and acting. And now, she is the new face of Pantene.
Latifah's first job will be to model for Pantene's Truly Relaxed and Truly Natural collections.
Although the Grammy winner is already the CoverGirl spokesperson, she has wanted to work with Pantene for a long time now. She told People, “When they first approached me, I thought, ‘Finally!’”
Latifah also spoke about her reason for backing Pantene products and why she thinks they're so special. “Having black hair is unique,” she explains, “in that black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that black women are wearing: straight curls, short cuts, braids — we really run the gamut. That means we have to have the products that really work for all of our various looks, and Pantene is so versatile.”
In addition to repping the new products, Latifah will be supporting – as well as encouraging others to support – National Donate Your Hair Day, which takes place Sept. 7. This is a day that emphasizes the importance of donating your hair to help make wigs for cancer patients who lose their hair.
It even sounds like Latifah isn't just going to model and preach the Pantene products, but live them. “I’m really looking forward to wearing [my hair] natural more often. It’s just fun.”
Hello Beautiful reports that Sanaa Lathan was last year's face of Pantene.
