Black girl magic takes the solar system in Stella's Stellar Hair, a celebration of hair, family, and self-love from debut author-illustrator Yesenia Moises!

It’s the day of the Big Star Little Gala, and Stella's hair just isn't acting right! 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.

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. Backmatter provides more information about each style and each planet.



    What was it like to write your first picture book, and what was the inspiration behind it?

    This fantastical reenvisioning of the solar system came about after my own experiences with learning to love my natural hair. As an AfroLatina, I’d spent much of my life exposed to messages in the media that essentially said straight or loosely wavy hair was the only kind of hair that was beautiful. It was in the cartoons I watched, the telenovelas I’d consumed with my family growing up, and as I got older I realized that there was something very wrong with that. I wanted to create a story that countered the messaging I’d been conditioned to believe from a young age, that black hair isn’t as desirable as looser textures. I wanted to change that narrative and show young black girls that their hair is beautiful with an interstellar twist!
