BET Sunday Best gives singers a chance to show off their vocal abilities. A nationwide search is conducted in cities across the country and the top contestants perform weekly in front of a live audience in Atlanta, striving to win the title of “Sunday Best.”
Design Essentials Professional Hair Company is one the sponsors of BET Sunday Best and Shonda King, one of Design Essentials’ educators got the opportunity to style the contestant’s hair for the show’s recent run in Atlanta.
 King’s salon, Gifted Creations Hair Salon, is in suite D-2 in the Midway Mall.
“The experience with BET was one that I will never forget. There were so many highlights. Working with the BET staff was a great experience and meeting Kirk Franklin was awesome. There were a lot of  long hours. My job was to make sure that the contestants’ hair was camera-ready and that their  hair styles complemented who they were as individuals.
“Meeting the contestants and hearing their stories, makes me appreciate every opportunity given me. I am amazed how good God is. If I could give another stylist a word of encouragement, it would be always put God first, have a passion for all you do and always try to help the next person.”
