Trendy Tuesday: Gray Hair, Like it? Love it? Leave it?

There are so many trends that come and go whether it’s hair styles or ingredients in products. For the past year or so odd hair colors have been trending ,in particular pastels and neutrals. I haven’t seen too many curlies rocking it but we can always count on Kelis, especially for crazy colors and cuts. I came across a few pictures on several blogs but I will let you all be the judge. Ignore the style and try to concentrate in the color. I know both are pretty out there.

I actually like it. I wouldn’t rock this but I think it’s cute for a few weeks… if you are an entertainer. After a week or so it needs to me rinsed with another color, I don’t think it would be cute for a whole season. Kelly Obsourne has been wearing it for a while and I think it’s time for her to let it go too!


So what do you think? Like it? Love it? or Leave It?


Chrisette Michele’s Big Chop

Today’s fab curl is Chrisette Michele! She worked this TWA. I love how she spiced it up with big lashes and a statement making, huge feather earring. Her makeup is flawless and very natural looking too. To achieve this style you can do a wash and go leaving a light spray leave-in conditioner and seal with an oil or hair pomade. I think a combo of one of Oyin Handmade’s juices and pomades would work great. That line smells sooooo yummy! You could also achieve this look doing a coil out with a soft hold styler or hair butter. I was surprised to have read that Chrisette colors her own hair. Deep conditioning is a must weekly if you decide to color because keeping those curls moisturized will prevent damage and promote healthy hair.


Have you recently BCd???….Please share your experiences and what products you use? Do you want to BC soon… Do you think you would like to rock a look like this?

Curl of the Day: Kelis and Her Big Chop


Since starting her career singer, Kelis has been known for her big hair. A few years ago she chopped it all off and has been rocking it like this ever since. Her sides were originally shaved so thats why it has this tapered shape.  This is how my hair looked after my BC (well chemo chop), too bad I only wore it out once. This style is so easy to achieve. I would shampoo (before I knew about co-washing), condition, and leave in a conditioner or curl cream. This look is beautiful and I would like to encourage all my lovely BC curls to rock their hair don’t cover it up, if I could do it all again I definitely would!

Curl of the Day: Jill Scott’s Fab Cornrows

Check this out curls…


Miss Jill Scott rocked this fab look at the premiere of “Why Did I Get Married Too”! Check out tips and products her stylist Felicia M. Leatherwood (total sweetheart) recommends over on Essence.


I like to apply a light leave in like Jane Carter’s Revitalizing Leave In Spray and follow braiding with an oil based hair butter to keep things smooth like Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter.  I’ve been eyeing B.A.S.K.’s Java Bean and Honey Hair Balm to replace CD’s butter. Leatherwood also stated she uses Bohyme Brazilian Wave my favorite curly weave of all time. These extensions blend so well with natural hair especially 3c and 4a tpyes.

Curl of the Day: Raven’s TWA

Today’s curl is Raven-Symone. She did a big chop some months ago and her hair is progressing beautifully. Some entertainment blogs may opposed so we often she her wigging it out. Either way I love this girl. She also lost weight and looking so healthy and happy. She is such a great role model, not just to young girls but naturals too! Society should love our curls as much as we do but until then who cares what they say, love you!

Like It, Love It, or Leave It Alone: Shaved Looks

So just when you think Solange was bold and Amber Rose was a robo-alien these girls and baby took it too a whole ‘nother level. The one-side or back shaved, mohawks, baby hawks, razor designs with color have taken over Hollywood lately. I hate to admit it but I kind of like it. Now you won’t see me looking like this unless some one paid me. My friends and I always joke about doing something crazy but we don’t have the guts. Well hope you enjoy. Let me know if you like it, love it, or just rather leave it alone.

It looks like Raven has a little razor action going on but i’m not 100% sure

La La surprised me with this one..

This is actually cute and has been copied by a lot of my classmates…minus the color

I would expect this from Kelis she always full of surprises….

Scary Spice and Eddie Murphy’s baby Angel….

She looks adorable in my opinion…plus she has a lot of time for it to grow back

And look the whole fam is curly minus pops…

Well thats the end of the Shaved Fest…and I think you get the point. Don’t be surprised if you see more celebs or even your friends following the trend.
