Haute Hair: Step Your Wig Game Up

cut

I am a naturalista and while I love my curls, I must admit styling my hair becomes tiresome. There are only so many twist-outs, wash and go’s, and up-do’s a girl can take before she starts flipping through magazines in search of a new style; one preferably with less maintenance. That is when you have to get your Wendy Williams on and shake out an old wig. How you doinnn???

In decades prior there was a stigma associated with wigs. We thought of old Grandma Agnes sitting in the front pew of church catching the Spirit a bit too hard causing her hairpiece to shift. But wigs have since upped their quality giving us new looks to throw into the pot without the commitment.

What I love about wigs is I can go short if I’m feeling rockstar or if I want to be glamorous I can let her hang. I can throw in a pop of color or keep it simple. Wigs provide versatility allowing you to be whoever you want to be for the day, or the year depending on the quality of hair you purchase.

There are so many hair fashionistas who have made wigs a trend that we cannot ignore. Check out the pics below and holla at us in them comments if you’re feeling them.

Beauty News: Lip-Locking Color

beyonce-makeup

Wednesday marks the first official day of Fall which can only mean one thing, the daring lip is back. Dark plums and cranberry reds aren’t just for the farmer’s market but for adorning our smiles. Being a lady allows the fun of playing dress up. What’s dressing up without a fierce face and what’s a fierce face without a bold lip?

I really have to be in full beat mode to apply foundation so to put some pep in my step, my Revlon Cherry Blossom Red lipstick is a must. If I’m feeling frisky I’ll go to my matte Wine Not matched with a bit of bronzer or rosy blush to make a statement.

Check out these hot mamas who know how to give a good lip pout. What colors are you busting out this season?

Hair Chronicles: Classic Looks to Turn Heads

Hair

One of a lady’s greatest assets is…look up fellas, her hair. You can tell a lot about a woman’s personality by her do. Natural, curly, bone straight, wigs, weaves; we are pretty fortunate to be able to diversify our look. I get bored easily so I love to switch it up. As a naturalista, I might twist my tresses for a wavy curl or rock my full natural with a wash and go. I just cannot deal with the mundane. Let’s peek at some looks that we absolutely adore.

I’ve been missing my relaxed inverted bob. I may have to wig it up because I’ve put in too many years to resort back to the creamy crack (no shade to you relaxed cuties). I am a sucker for a short cut. Whether chin-length or Halle Berry sleek, I think every woman should experiment with short hair at some point.

I’m not a fan of my hair’s response to color but I love a diva who can maintain a healthy mane while adding bold, rich colors. Deep purples, reds, and even blue are a unique fashion risk that I would love to take but must admit I’m a bit too chicken. But these beauties have pulled off rockstar hair color while keeping it sophisticated and chic.
