The Key Look is more than just a premier wedding hair and makeup service– it’s a Black-owned business that takes pride in catering to brides of all backgrounds. Located in New Jersey, The Key Look has become synonymous with quality, elegance, and exceptional service. With years of experience in the industry, we understand the unique needs of Black hair and provide personalized attention to ensure our clients’ tresses look their very best!


Understanding Black Hair

Understanding Black hair is crucial to maintaining its health and beauty. Black hair is diverse and comes in various textures, from curly to kinky, and requires special attention to ensure that it remains healthy and vibrant. Unlike straight hair with its circular cross-section, Black hair has an elliptical shape, making it more prone to dryness, breakage, and damage from heat-styling tools such as flat irons or blow dryers.

Our team of expert stylists realizes that your hair is unique and requires individualized care based on its texture, length, and thickness.


The Key Look’s Approach

Black hair requires specialized care to maintain its health and beauty. That’s why we use only high-quality products designed explicitly for textured tresses at The Key Look. Here are some of the products we use:

Curl Creams

Curl creams are essential for enhancing natural texture without weighing down the strands. They provide moisture, definition, and hold to curls, coils, and waves. The Key Look uses curl creams that contain natural ingredients such as shea butter or coconut oil to nourish and protect the hair.


Gels are another vital product for defining curls and creating sleek styles such as buns or chignons. They provide long-lasting hold while minimizing frizz and flyaways. We use gels that do not contain alcohol or other drying ingredients that can cause breakage or damage.

Edge Control

Edge control is a must-have product for achieving sleek edges around the hairline or parting area. It provides a smooth finish while taming flyaways and keeping edges in place all day. We use edge control products that do not leave a residue or flake off over time.

Leave-In Conditioners

Leave-in conditioners are crucial for maintaining moisture balance in Black hair, which tends to be dry due to its structure. They provide hydration, softness, and manageability while protecting against damage caused by heat styling or environmental factors. We prefer leave-in conditioners that contain natural oils such as jojoba or avocado oil to restore vitality to the strands.

Heat Protectants

Heat protectants are essential when using hot tools such as flat irons or curling wands on black hair. They help prevent breakage caused by excessive heat exposure while providing a smooth finish to your style. Our heat protectants contain argan oil or keratin protein ingredients to help strengthen and protect the strands.

Using high-quality products specifically designed for Black hairstyles is crucial for achieving beautiful wedding styles without compromising the health of your hair.
