Go Off, Sis

Chopping It Off & Up ft. Lacy Redway

Season 6, Ep. 1

Hey Sis, WE'RE BACK!!! During this capsule edition of Go Off, Sis, presented by Dove, we are giving homage to the epicenter of Black hair. Today we're talking about the "BIG CHOP". The “Big Chop” has been a major expression for Black women that symbolizes release, expression, freedom, and discovery. So we think it's time to Cut It Off, Sis! Whether we’re cutting off hair, the toxic stigmas around our hair, or reliving the time that we had to cut it off (not by choice). To add more volume to the roundtable, we have a true beauty maven with a resume, longer than your favorite Cardi B lace front, celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway. Lacy is redefining beauty standards and advocating for why there needs to be more Black creative talent on set and in the HMU trailer.

    48:47
    We’re back for part-two of our cute lil two-pack centered around gathering, and in this episode we’re taking TIME to figure out what do we actually want our summer to look like. From work obligations and career ambitions to juggling side hustles while staying #1 in the group chat we’re burning the candle at both ends and this conversation is centered in how we want to replenish our mind, body and spirits this summer. We’re getting into it - from the products that keep us looking and feeling our best, our summer themes, and throwing a little shade at our 20’s, to our relationship with ambition and how we define it for ourselves and not letting our work overtake our purpose. To get into all of it we’ll be joined by our favorite earth sign, multi-hyphenated, and Go Off, Sis alum Keke (Keep A Job) Palmer to discuss her summer plans and if she’ll soon be adding award-winning chef to that list of accolades.
