Three Daughters of the Doctor founder and CEO Dr. Ena Hennegan, the creator of the Many Ethnicities line of curl care products, was honored today (September 17, 2018) by NBC's The TODAY SHOW as one of TODAY'S 2018 Style Heroes.
The TODAY SHOW's editors selected 40 women and men from across the spectrum of acting, sports, art and activism who inspired them this year.
"It's completely unexpected, and a wonderful honor," Dr. Ena said. "To be included in this group means so much to me because I was just trying to do something positive for my family and for people who simply felt shut out of the conversation about beautiful, natural hair. I never could have imagined that it would lead to something as wonderful as this. Thank you to everyone at the Today Show."
