It’s no secret that Sha’Carri Richardson has been the subject of dialog over the previous few weeks. She first hopped into the highlight after qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics with a ten.86-second run in the 100-meter race — and doing all of it whereas wanting good as hell with a vibrant orange wig and prolonged pink talons. Though Richardson will not be capable of compete at the Olympics this 12 months, we’re nonetheless rooting for her and her in depth wig assortment over right here. Our latest fave — the glossy burgundy wig she debuted at the 2021 ESPY Awards on Saturday, July 10.
The younger athlete regarded like a dream at the ESPYs in a bedazzled black robe, lengthy ballerina-shaped nails, and a straight sangria-colored unit, which really is the star of the look. Hairstylist Nikki Nelms made certain that this center half unit was slicked down. Not one piece of garnet hair was misplaced.
This wig is certainly giving scalp with how properly Nelms put in it. We particularly love that she went for the deep burgundy shade. The silky 99J unit was really an excellent option to pair with the strappy robe. It falls proper close to her waist, giving her loads of inches to whip and flip round.
As for make-up, Richardson made certain to not let up. Makeup artist Sheika Daley saved the look extra on the impartial facet and made Richardson seem like a glowing magnificence. Her radiant pores and skin is really breathtaking. Of course, as many younger Black ladies do, she stepped out with a pair of prolonged fluffy lashes paired with a shiny nude lip.
At the awards, she sat down for an interview with The Undefeated and shared the three ladies that encourage her colourful magnificence decisions: her grandmother, mom, and, after all, the iconic observe star Flo Jo. “She did everything you thought she couldn’t do in a way you thought she couldn’t do it. Of course, that’s definitely my inspiration,” she says of Flo Jo. “Every time I step on the track I’m going to show you long nails, a different color hair… As long as my community loves it, I’ma bring it every time.”
Sha’Carri, we absolutely cannot wait to see what nail design and wig you go for subsequent. (We’re voting for yellow.)
