Conquering television, music and modeling is all in a day’s work for 33-year-old Buckhead beauty Africa Miranda. Most recently, you may recognize the Alabama State University alum as the star of Bravo’s latest reality series, The New Atlanta, where she’s backing up her bangin’ looks with bona fide talent via her female music group, The Lipstick Junkies. Riding high on her current success, Miranda is gearing up for a multicity tour with the Junkies—there’s even a New Year’s Eve performance in Doha, Qatar, on the books. And talk about worldly! She’s also on the campaign trail, currently as the face of a national ad campaign for Drake’s snack cakes, and several others for hair, while also penning a hair-care guide titled The Hairnista Chronicles. When she’s not taking over A-Town and beyond, find this looker at Buckhead Bottle Bar & Bistro, Eclipse di Luna and Top Flr. Here, she spills the secrets behind those curly locks.
