Let’s Celebrate: Three New Year’s Eve Hair and Make Up Looks to Try

It’s the end of the year and while most people are looking forward to 2017 with much anticipation, there is still one more big night of partying that everyone is planning for- New Year’s Eve. With so many events happening on the last day of 2016, you want to look your best and that most definitely starts with your hair and make up.

These past 12 months have been one big whirlwind of emotions for just about everyone. You deserve to send the year off with a bang and of course you want to look good while doing it. From hairstyle ideas to the prefect make up suggestions, we want to help you get your life one last time before we bring in what we all hope to be a great year.

So, here are some hair and make up ideas to consider for your eventful night out (or in) on December 31st.

Dramatic

Depending on the type of woman you are, you may want to go for a dramatic look because, hey, maybe your year was filled with drama. A great idea here is a sexy smoky eye. There are so many ways to accomplish this with a lot of tutorials online to help you along the way (YouTube is your friend). As far as the products go, NYX has a great one with their NYX Professional Makeup Smokey Fume Shadow Palette. Of course MAC, and Urban Decay are tried and true go-tos. When it comes to the hairstyle, a statement up do is great like a Mohawk for naturals or a high bun for relaxed hair.

Chic

This look really comes down to a few elements. One of the things that you can do to achieve a chic, sleek look is to make your lashes pop. This can be done a few ways. If you have luscious lashes (lucky you) then all you really need is a good mascara. But you have to make sure it will garner the look you want. Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Mascara has a great one that is also smudge resistant. You can also apply faux lashes and they come in all kinds of styles and sizes. For the lips you can go with a dark color like a deep purple, red or even black (yes it’s okay to wear black). The hairstyle you choose can be structured like a nice up do bun or neat like a low, sleek ponytail. The goal here is to create a modern, trendy effect.

Classic

If you want to keep it simple and natural then go the minimalist route. It’s classic! This is a great look that is clean but still very flattering. For black women, this means starting with a primer, concealer and foundation. Shea Moisture has excellent products in all of those areas. You can add a little blush and keep the lip nude or a light shade of pink. A matching hairstyle for this look is a simple twist out. Set your hair in Bantu knots or flat twists, take them out, style and go. Make sure to use a good setting agent for the beset results. For the ladies with relaxed hair, soft, bouncy curls is a nice option and flexi rods will give you exactly what you want.

This New Year’s Eve, whatever you are doing, celebrate all the ways that you enjoy life. Be thankful, be happy and by all means, by fierce. To accomplish that, start with your hair and make up.

It’s a Curl Affair: Five Effective Setting Agents For Roller Set/Curl Styles

Let’s talk about curls! Who doesn’t like beautiful flowing curls in their hair? No matter if you are a natural or if your hair is relaxed, achieving those enviable cascading waves of curls is trial and error for most people.

Now, when it comes down to it, technique has a lot to do with this process. How you handle the tool you’re using is one of the factors in determining your results. Speaking of tools, the kind of curler you use weighs heavily on the outcome as well. Finally, the setting agent of your choice can make or break your curling effort. Remember, you don’t always have to use heat to curl your hair, and in those instances when you don’t, you need to have a product that can do the job. Most of the time, if you use a gel, it will leave your hair feeling hard, flaky and crunchy. Oils and butters are viable options, but with some, your curls won’t last very long. That’s why it’s so important to have the right product in your hair kit.

If you haven’t found the ideal setting agent for your curling needs, here are a few products to try for your next roller set.

ApHogee Style and Wrap Mousse

Finding a mousse that gives you the hold and bounce you want can be hard, but ApHogee Style and Wrap Mousse does both. It has Kervais proteins and essential amino acids that are perfect for roller sets and silk wraps. All of the ingredients work together to protect your hair while giving you the results you want.

Nubian Heritage’s Honey & Black Seed Mousse

For the natural ladies who want something that is, well, more natural, Nubian Heritage’s Honey & Black Seed Mousse is what you are looking for.  You get shine, softness, hold and heat protection with Shea butter, glycerin and other helpful ingredients. It is formulated to definitely give you the sleek and straight look you want when trying to achieve bouncy curls on natural hair.

Lottabody

If you want something tried and true and easy on your wallet, then Lottabody is a good choice. Its Wrap Me Foaming Mousse is a setting foam that’s one of the best on the market. With its coconut and Shea oils, Lottabody promises, “to deeply hydrate hair from the inside out, leaving hair soft and nourished with brilliant shine.” It’s worth a try.

Texture My Way Keep it Curly

Another great product is Texture My Way Keep it Curly. It is ideal for rollers sets and will also do well for two strand twits and other braided styles. It’s lightweight with Shea butter and olive oil as the prominent ingredients. The foam will moisturize your hair (always a good thing) while giving you shine. Many users have also praised it for not leaving build up, not being flaky and not causing frizz, all desirable things in my book.

Paul Mitchell Flexible Sculpting Foam

This product comes from a trusted name in hair care. The Paul Mitchell Flexible Sculpting Foam is highly rated and for good reason. The product gives crunch free curls that enhance your texture for a style that holds up throughout the day. This especially works well for thick hair that experiences bouts of dryness.

These are just a few of the products that will help you make the most out of your roller set/curl hairstyle. Find out what works beset for you and keep it in your arsenal of hair products at all times.

The Staples: Four Basic Products for Great Natural Hair

the-staplesIn this game called the natural hair movement, things aren’t always what they seem. It takes a lot of time, commitment and trial and error to get the hang of slaying your chemical free hair. Naturals don’t just wake up and walk out of the house (well some do) with amazing curls. The ones who have enviable hair have their routine together and an arsenal of “staple” products. Let’s talk about products.

If you are new to the movement, you may still be in search of your go to products. These are items that you use religiously because you know, without fail, they will give your hair the life and love it needs. These are staples because you never want to be without them and when it comes down to it, they are your secret weapons to having fabulous hair.

Staple products vary from person to person and some have an array of things they consider must have items. Adding effective products to your natural hair bag comes with time, but there are four types of products you should always have to ensure the health and strength of your tresses.

Shampoo

Having the right kind of cleanser is paramount. If you wash your hair once a week, once every two weeks or once a month, you need something that is going to be gentle yet effective when it comes to eliminating build up and giving you awesome hair. You want to stay away from sulfates and pretty much ingredients that you can’t pronounce. If you don’t know where to start in all of this, Shea Moisture is always a great place.

Deep Conditioner

Too many people skip this part of the process but it is so important to keep your hair soft and strong. Having a deep conditioner is a staple because it replenishes your hair with moisture and nutrients. The elements in the atmosphere and so many other things lend to dry, brittle and damaged hair. As much as you might want to forego deep conditioning, you should not. Take the time out to do this for your hair. You can sit under a dryer or wear a shower cap to really get a good conditioning. Same standards apply here too as with the shampoo. Make sure to use products with good things in them. There are some really effective DIY recipes that work wonders.

Moisturizer

You want to build on the work you have already done with the deep conditioning by applying some kind of moisturizer. This can be an oil or a product you get from the store like a leave-in conditioner. There are great oils by brands that create products formulated for natural hair. Carol’s Daughter has some nice ones. You can also use oil that you find in your cabinet like olive and coconut oils. You can take it one step further by using both a leave-in and an oil.

Setting Agent

Most naturals will opt for some kind of protective styling. This is really a no brainer because creating a hairstyle low in maintenance is one of the keys to having successful natural hair. The thing about it, not all setting products are created equal. Some women use their leave-in conditioner for this but that doesn’t always work out well. To ensure that your twist out or bantu knots are on point, you want a good setting agent like Lottabody Setting Lotion.

If you want to have beautiful natural hair that’s styled nicely, this is an ideal and viable start. From these four basic staples, grow through your experiences as you find what works for you.

Natural Hair Hacks

hairhackThe life that most women live today is full of lists upon lists of things that they have to do. From work to home to kids to self, no one has time to partake in long processes of anything. If you have natural hair or ever had natural hair, then you know that maintaining it can take time in order for it to be done well. With all that we have to do on a day-to-day basis, thank goodness for hacks.

There are hacks for everything including natural hair. These are things that either makes your process go a lot more smoothly or that aid in ensuring you get the best results. If you feel like you don’t have enough time to really get your hair the way that you want, which makes you not want to do it at all, these simple tips will greatly help you get through your natural hair lifestyle just a little bit easier.

Baby Wipes for Cleansing

Some women don’t like washing their hair when they have a protective style. Now, I get it, but that’s not a good idea. Most of the time women keep these styles for over a month and that’s a long time to go without washing your hair. Try baby wipes. It’s super easy to cleanse your scalp this way. Eliminate odor and the appearance of build-up.

T-Shirts for Drying

A lot of natural swear by this hack. They use it to reduce frizz after washing their hair. Instead of using a towel, use a t-shirt to dry your hair in order to avoid breakage.

Pipe Cleaners for Curling

When you twist your hair, sometimes the ends don’t turn out the way that you want. This is where using pipe cleaners is a genius idea. You can cut them super small, roll the ends of your hair and twist to keep in place. Make sure to use your favorite product to ensure the best results.

Cold Water for Shine

If you can stand it and if you really want some popping, shiny curls, rinse your hair in the coldest water possible. Cold water closes your cuticle, which seals it allowing for fewer frizzes and more definition. It’s tried and true advice that really works.

Scarf for Edge Control

When it comes to laying those edges down, you don’t need a lot of stuff to get the job done. All you really need is a good leave-in and a scarf. Apply whatever product you want on the edges of your hair and then tie them down with a scarf. This even works if you work out a lot. After getting your heart pumping at the gym, wrap a scarf and secure it. As soon as an hour later your edges will be laid.

Hair Ties for Stretching

If you only use hair ties for ponytails, you are missing out on a super useful hack- stretching. Yes, you can use your hair ties to help limit shrinkage. After sectioning your hair in about four sections (you can do up to six) take a hair tie and starting at the root, wrap it around your hair in a downward motion until you can’t any more. Use another one to pick up where you left off and do it all the way down to the ends repeating as needed. This stretching method will give you less shrinkage while maintaining your curl. Use your usual styling products as a setting agent.

Just as anything else in life, managing your natural hair takes a little maneuvering. But after you get the hang of things, you’ll be so happy that you took the time to learn your hair.

The Regimen: Four-Step Process for Kids’ Natural Hair

for-kids-natural-hairOne of the great things about the natural hair movement is that more parents are also including their daughters. In the past, too many young girls had chemically processed hair that made it even more difficult to care for and manage as they got older. Having natural hair involves more time, but when it comes to our children, it is well worth the commitment.

So let’s talk about commitment. I know that it may seem that having natural hair as an adult is hard enough, but all things considered, it can be a lot less stressful on a young girl for a number of reasons. From having to use fewer products to having to spend less time on hairstyles, it’s not as hard as you might think. Because of that and so much more, if you are a parent and you have a daughter, you are doing yourself and your offspring a huge favor by keeping her tresses natural.

As with anything, it all comes down to regimen. Everyone has their way of doing things, but sometimes the thought of what you think is involved can be overwhelming. To help you better cope and handle your daughter’s natural hair, is a four step process that makes everything easy peasy.

Shampoo

This is a given, I know, so make sure that when you do shampoo to use the right shampoos. What are the right shampoos? It is always safe to choose cleansers that are as gentle as possible, which usually means they are sulfate free. Especially for a child’s hair, you really set the tone for their hair for the rest of his or her life. A lot of times, the products that you use on your hair also have a line for kids. Shea Moisture is a good one.

Moisturize

You have to make sure that you do right by your daughter’s (or son) hair and that means moisturizing it. Some people refer to it as greasing but nowadays, oiling the scalp is the better option. Along with something like extra virgin olive oil, you can use a leave-in conditioner. ORS Curls has a great one to try.

Detangle

No matter what you do, detangling is a matter of life and death. Okay, so maybe it’s not that serious but it is very serious. Most kids have tender heads, which means that the need to ensure it’s easy to comb through their hair is paramount. The best time to do detangle is when you moisturize. Take it section by section to make sure you get all of the kinks and knots out without causing any damage.

Style

If you want to maximize your efforts, end your regimen by styling it. But don’t just choose any kind of style. You want to make sure that whatever you do, it is one that doesn’t take a lot of upkeep. Usually braids or cornrows are the way to go here. You can accomplish a couple of things with this kind of style. First, it will allow for easy re-moisturizing in the event you see that process is necessary. Secondly, it is super easy to maintain. Usually a satin bonnet or scarf is all you need to make it last. Most protective styles on children can last anywhere from 3 days to a week.

There you have it. Natural hair for kids is the way to go. It may take some time to get used to, but after some practice and consistency, you’ll see how convenient it all really is for you and your baby.

How to Keep Your Natural Hair Straighter for Longer,

straighter-for-longerLet’s face it; sometimes as a natural, you want to enjoy the beauty of bone straight hair. There is nothing wrong with it. That is one of the great things about being natural. There is so much versatility and being able to go from curly to straight is definitely one of them.

Now, here’s the thing that all naturals know- keeping your hair straight can be a pain. And more often than not, you will find yourself putting heat on your hair all the time in an attempt to maintain a semblance of your once popping blowout. In fact, a lot of women stray away from straightening their hair because of the damage they can incur by applying heat daily. Furthermore, some just don’t think it’s worth going through the hassle of doing their hair when all it’s going to do is revert back to its curly state.

If you’ve ever had any of these thoughts, I hear you! But believe it or not, there are some techniques and products you can use to not only reach optimal sleekness, but to also maintain your straight mane longer.

Cut Your Ends

Women don’t like to cut their ends because many can’t reconcile getting ride of dead hair with having healthy hair. But the thing about this is that clipping away the split ends will help your blowout look and feel better. Split ends can hide in curly hair, but they are easily seen when straightened. They can make a blowout look unprofessional or raggedy. Trimming your ends is good practice and you will see a difference when your hair is straight and when it’s curly.

Use a Humectant Blockers/Protectant

If you don’t know what a humectant is, it’s an ingredient in hair products that protect draws in moisture. We all know that humidity is one of the worst things for the hair because it pretty much ruins all chances of having a nice style. You can get a heat protectant that also serves as an anti-humectant. This will definitely help prevent curl reversion.

Use Denman Brush

One of the most important things when straightening your hair with a flat iron, is to use a denman brush when blow drying, which helps tremendously. This is a kind of hair tool that is cylinder shaped with bristle coming out of it. The brush works wonders not only for blow drying your hair, but also for getting it prepped for an effective blowout. It takes time being that you should section your hair but it is worth it.

Use an Ionic Blow Dryer

Speaking of blow drying your hair, to get the best results, use an ionic dryer. It helps makes the cuticles of your hair lie flat all while giving it great shine. Remember, when it comes to doing your hair and getting the desired look, it comes down to more than just products and technique. You cannot go wrong with an ionic blow dryer.

Use a Ceramic Flat Iron

All flat irons are not made equally, so if you want to really get bone straight hair, use a ceramic iron. Rusk and FHI have some amazing tools. You also want to use a mini flat iron, as they seem to work best on curly and short hair. The key here too is to work in small sections so that the iron can glide through every inch of your hair.

These tips are the basics but they also work. If you are opting to do your hair yourself, that’s great! But don’t waste time with methods, products and tools that don’t work. Get the most out of your efforts by keeping these things in mind.
