It’s the day of the Big Star Little Gala, and Stella's hair just isn't acting right! It's twisting and turning, full of loops and curls that all seem to be going different directions. What’s a girl to do? Simple! Just hop on her hoverboard, visit each of her fabulous aunties across the solar system, and find the perfect hairdo along the way.
Black girl magic takes the solar system in this celebration of hair, family, and self-love from debut author-illustrator Yesenia Moises! Stella’s Stellar Hair celebrates the joy of self-empowerment, shows off our solar system, and beautifully illustrates a variety of hairstyles from the African diaspora. With backmatter that provides more information about each style and each planet, this is an out-of-this-world look at the joy of finding the hairstyle that's perfectly you.
"In Moises’ friendly cartoon images, the vibrant colors change with the location and the atmospheric conditions. The backmatter explains all the different aunts’ hairstyles by speculating what style would be best adapted to the environment of each locale, if humans could live there. An innovative, refreshing, out-of-this-world tale about the incredible versatility of afro hair." — Kirkus Reviews
