Entrepreneur, inventor, and philanthropist Annie Turnbo Malone is the subject of a new biography by Boston College graduate Eve Nadel Catarevas. Wonderful Hair: The Beauty of Annie Malone (Creston Books, 2022), is about how Malone turned her personally developed hair care products into a successful industry, including 32 beauty colleges that taught the unique Poro method. Wonderful Hair, a book for young readers, is illustrated by Felicia Marshall. Catarevas, who earned a bachelor’s degree from BC in 1979, likes to share the achievements of little-known historical figures with young readers. She is also the author of Rena Glickman, Queen of Judo.
