You can’t always rely on your hairdresser to know what works best for your round face. My own hairdresser talked me into a short-on-the-sides style right after I’d gained some weight, and my new ‘do made my cheeks look giant. It’s bad enough when a too-tight pair of pants makes you look bigger than you really are, but a haircut?
In the commercial for her debut album Pure Heroine, Lorde has a Cute Braided Crown hairstyle. I love that her hair is slightly frizzy and the fly-a-ways haven't been tamed. It reflects a realistic person's hair (like mine!). This updo is simple to create; basically it's just a Dutch Braid circling the head....more
By cutting long layers, your hair will keep its length -- plus, you will have a nice V-shaped angle in the back, while the hair will frame your face in the front. It's always best to go to a professional ... but sometimes, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. This technique is what works for me, and I get tons of compliments on it.
I hope it works for you, too! And hope you enjoy the video...
I love Waterfall Braids, it is such an elegant style. I have practiced many different ways of styling this type of braid on myself. I think this technique is the easiest. While doing the tutorial even I had some trouble ( and I practiced!) but it turned out well! I think this technique can be done on all hair types and textures, long, medium, straight or curly. I think this way esspecially works for layered hair. I had curled my hair with a curling iron for the tutorial but also showed a more casual style with straighter hair. Hope you like it!...more
Going Natural is a wonderful journey to take. It's a personal one too that each woman must determine how she will go about doing it. I get tired of many saying the journey is hard, long and full of pitfalls but honestly, isn't life? I'm just feeling we need to be truthful about going Natural and taking care of our hair whether relaxed or Natural....more
Side PonytailI love wearing a side ponytail. Depending on how you wear it, you can wear it for formal events such as a wedding or it can be casual for every day. If I just wore a ponytail it would look very casual but for some reason you put it to the side and there is some elegance to your look. I like to put the ponytail on the side my bangs are on - it works for me... But whatever you are comfortable with. ...more
This past weekend I got my hair straightened, cut, and deep conditioned at Good Hair Day Salon in Duncanville,TX. My stylist Tekayla was a breath of fresh air compared to what I last experienced. I told her to go ahead and cut all of the split ends that needed to be cut. She continuously asked me if I was sure while she was doing it, I now know why. My hair was at near bra strap length now it is near collar bone length. :''(....more
Tomorrow we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In school and in our homes, we all learned about what this visionary stood for…peace, justice and equality for very race of people. Today, I can appreciate the significance of his legacy more than ever. There are many memorable quotes that Dr. King made in his lifetime that are notable. As I ponder the gravity of them all, I think of this one that reminds me of my natural hair journey that I embarked on many years ago....more
What is Dry Shampoo? Dry shampoo is a powdered substance used to clean the hair when you want to extend the length when it is not practical to use water and traditional shampoo.If you’re strapped for time and you need to freshen up your locks (after the gym, before a night out, or if you are like me and hit the snooze button too many times), dry shampoo serves as a fantastic option....more
