#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty History 🌟 A GEENIE series giving flowers to the women and femmes whose beauty and talent sparkled and reigned supreme over time. The Oscars presented a new iconic moment in beauty: Hairstylists, Mia Neal & Jamika Wilson's Academy Award nomination and triumphant win ✨

The Moment: We're taking it back to earlier this week - April 25th, 2021 - at Union Station and Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. @brklynin & @jamikawilson are attending the 93rd Academy Awards for their work in 2020 film "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom", alongside MUA Sergio Lopez-Rivera (@sergiowastaken). Mia, Jamika, and Sergio would become the winning glam team this Oscars night! And Mia and Jamika are making history as the first Black women nominated for the Oscar category - and the first to win - "Best Makeup & Hairstyling". πŸ† The two are dressed to the nines in a deep navy and berry-toned purple numbers, with full-faced glam to accompany their formal lewks.Β Tap in to our Instagram hereΒ to hear Mia Neal's moving acceptance speech - it’s the intersectional lens for us. 🟣

"... I also stand here as Jamika and I break this glass ceiling with so much excitement for the future. Because I can picture Black trans women standing up here, and Asian sisters, and our Latina sisters, and Indigenous women. And I know that one day it won't be unusual or groundbreaking. It will just be normal."

Let's drop some πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ for Mia Neal, Jamika Wilson, and Sergio Lopez-Rivera down below!
