There are plenty of reasons to envy admire the goddess that is Yara Shahidi. She's got smarts (like, Harvard-level smarts). She's got style. And boy, does she have curls. "The sky is the limit, honestly," Nai'vasha Johnson, her go-to hairstylist, tells us. "There's so much you can do with [her hair]."

However, one thing remains consistent, and that is the health of her curls, which is paramount. See how Johnson takes care of her Grown-ish client's hair — when it's up or down — ahead.
