While at the Movie Theater the other day watching the movie “Think like a man”, I couldn’t help but think that Gabrielle Union has one of the best black hairstyles of any African American out there. She truly is a top trend setter for the African American community. Pictures of her hair styles are brought into hair salons across the country. Her hair is so bouncy and shimmery. I couldn’t help but long for locks just like hers as I watched the movie.
Halle Berry has always been an empress of style, beauty and class. A lot of women may feel a bit apprehensive about experimenting with short hair styles, or donning shorter natural hair styles. Halle Berry has proven that women can look just as sexy with short hair as with long styles.
However, with very short hair styles, it’s possible to do a quick shampoo, conditioning and be ready to go. Like other black hair styles, you don’t want to over-wash your hair because it will lose crucial oils and dry out. If you shampoo every other day and apply a strong leave-in conditioner, you won’t have to fuss with it. Your hair should look fresh, cute and stylish, even through intense humidity.
Halle Berry’s look at the Jenesse Silver Rose Awards Gala is sassy and glamorous. This tussled look is simple to achieve with a bit of product and a flat iron, if your hair isn’t naturally straight or relaxed. Just shape the top and tease it a bit to give it more volume.
Hair styles that are on the shorter side are also great for rocking accessories. Short hair opens up your neck and shoulders so that you can wear elaborate necklaces and scarfs. Long, dangling earrings are also easy to showcase with short hair. To add a bit of glam to a short and simple style, try tying or pinning a pretty ribbon throughout your hair. Unique combs and hair ornaments are also an option. You can step out the door with confidence as you flash your shining embelishments like a modern day geisha.
Although spring break is a fun time, you may worry about the hassle of hauling hair products and finding hair salons at your spring break destination to make you look your best. With a little preparation and imagination, you can easily maintain your hair during spring break and look fabulous. Black hair styles often require a lot of care and maintenance to keep your hair beautiful, which requires many visits to hair salons. Spring break can lead to a fresh, new hair-style or even starting over with your beautiful locks. Spring is renewal, so renew your style that will last even after spring break ends.
During spring break, sometimes natural hair styles can be your best look. Why not spend your time off with a wash-and-go look that requires only a small amount of hair products? The spirit of the natural look can provide a hassle-free look with only a little cream conditioner or anti-frizz serum. You can dry it lightly or wear it wet. Natural hair provides a sexy and sophisticated look no matter what your spring break plans are. This style can be worn on short, medium or long hair if you’re prepared before you leave for spring break. A great conditioning therapy or even a perm or curl from your hair salon before you go can allow you to have this natural look. While you’re on vacation; let it all hang out and go free. That’s what it’s about, right?
The Classy Twist
A twist can provide a low-maintenance hair style during your spring break. Whether your hair is long or short, a few hair products can make your hair sexy and fun during your spring break vacation. Because this style can last over a week, it will allow you to transform your look from day to night, simply by changing your wardrobe, jewelry and make-up. With the twist, there’s no need to fuss. Change other things to reflect your mood and your style.
Like flowers that bloom as spring arrives, spring break may lead you to a spring renewal. Black hair styles can often damage the hair, making you ponder if you should start over for a fresh, new look to rejuvenate your hair. Spring break can not only provide the needed fun for your soul, but the renewal of your hair. Start fresh with a short, natural cut. This look is not only sexy, but can be easily maintained with few hair products. Super short hair styles let you start over, but provide a sophisticated and sexy look for all of your spring break adventures.

The top prom and wedding hair styles for 2012 were chosen by Dre’ Ramseur Blanton, the National Style Editor for Universal Salons. The first pro wedding hair style for 2012 that Dre’ chose is Lyndsey’s Chic and Curly Hair Style. Incorporating braids with curly hair is a great option for black hair styles. It allows for many options for different volumes and textures. This particular hair style features a pompadour-like side part. In addition to the side part, the curly hair adds volume to the asymmetric side braid. The shiny finish leaves a fresh, feminine look to die for.
The next hair style is called the Futuristic Mohawk. This style is for those wanting a creative and bold, sassy look. The hair is curly and flows down the middle of the head, cascading front and down toward the nape of the neck. To add more ‘oomph’ to this style, hair is convoluted in rows on either side of the head which blend perfectly into the curls.
Pin Curl Delight is the third hair style. Pin curls are sweet and sexy and are very versatile. You can use spray or gel to make them tight and sophisticated looking. You can brush them out and get soft wild waves to look seductive.
The common prom hair styles were chosen as the fourth and fifth hair style: up do’s! One variation is to have bangs in the front with sexy waves that come down out of the up do.
The other variation chosen is to have it piled on the top with tight, sleek curls. The back has tight curled braids coming down in rows from one side to the other that go down to the back of your neck.
After graduating from Dudley Cosmetology University in North Carolina in 1991, Dre’ Ramseur Blanton opened her first salon called Chez’ An’Dre’s Hair Unlimited in Kernersville. In 1998, she wanted a fresh start for her business so she relocated to Charlotte and opened Hair Infiniti Wellness Salon. She celebrated her 20th year of business in 2011. Many national magazines have published her work, including Dudley’s Hair Images, Hype Hair, Sophisticated Black Hair & Trends, Universal Salons Magazine, and NCBCA Trendsetters. This year she formed an organization called Beauty Against Obesity. This organization’s goal is to spread knowledge on how to fight against obesity.
Rihanna is not only a popular and highly successful singer, but she is also a wonderful, positive style icon in the African American community – a real trendsetter. Many can relate to her, not only because she overcame many obstacles in her life, but by the very public, abusive relationship she went through, and the fine manner in which she handled herself. Females of a variety ages are inspired to mimic, or develop a similar, feminine, glamorous style that Rihanna portrays, from the make up and clothes that she wears, to her wide variety of captivating and versatile hair styles. She knows what to wear, how to wear it, and knows when to wear it. Rihanna has self-respect, is classy, and has sex appeal all at the same time. She is daring and exudes confidence. These qualities are ones that most women would like to possess.
Actress Gabrielle Union seems way too young to be the trendsetter she is. She’s fabulous as an actress and is a rising trendsetter and role model for the African American Community. Now in Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, Gabrielle Union was seen iat the Los Angeles premiere in her starring role as a love interest to Tyler Perry’s Deeds. Throughout the years, Gabrielle has always been in the forefront of hair fashion in the African American community..
Ms.Union sports several long hair styles in the movie, ranging from the practical styles we all wear – a basic pony tail, no frills, no sheen, no conditioning – just whatever gets us through the day – to high sheen, highly polished long hair styles we all yearn to wear. The most beautiful hair style Union wore in the movie is of a long pony tail, with relaxed hair and plenty of sheen and conditioner, seen when Deeds announces that she can stay in one of his corporate apartments. A dream come true for anybody.
To achieve this star look of Gabrielle Union you should definitely contact your favorite professional cosmetologist. However, for the bold at heart, you can try to re-create this beautiful long style at your home. If you love the look of black hair styles, especially if you love long hair styles, you can achieve this look with little fuss and what you’ve already got at home. Whatever your hair style or hair style color, you can do this.
Shampoo and condition your hair, with the usual hair products you use. Towel dry your hair so that it is damp but not dripping. Apply liberal amounts of leave-in conditioner and work through the ends with your fingers. The trick here is to condition your black hair or hair style color to achieve this style. With your wide-toothed comb, gather your hair into a high pony and fasten securely with a quality pony fastener. Apply more leave-in conditioner, if necessary. Smooth the pony with the wide-toothed comb. If the ends are frizzy or dry, apply small amounts of leave-in conditioner. Spray lightly with a gentle spray.
Presto. You’ve achieved this long beautiful look. Many hair salons across the country will create the elegant look for you at a very reasonable cost. To see many many more photos like the one Gabrielle Union is wearing, you can go to our image gallery at www.universalsalons.com

The new year is almost here, but one thing that will be sticking around well beyond January 1 are 2011’s best black hair styles. Fashionistas, celebrities and other icons used styles that can be created in your local hair salons to make big statements in 2011, inspiring trendy new looks everyone can embrace. Which hair styles made a splash in 2011? Here are most-viewed hair styles of 2011.
4. Short and Dramatic
This bold, short style was created by Lashonda Howard of First Impressions Hair Salon in Ft. Walton Beach FL. The hair style makes a statement with one eye covered by bangs and shortly trimmed hair around the back and sides of the head. Volumizing product gives lift to the longer hair at the crown, and long, feathery curls add a touch of alluring femininity. The back and sides were trimmed short at the hair salon, but the top was left long. Product was added to give volume, and the section of hair on the crown of the head has a lot of lift. The hair was styled to form short, feathery curls at the back of the head, where the hair was left slightly longer. The long bangs emerge seamlessly from the crown and fall asymmetrically over the forehead. They land softly on the face and cover one eye, giving drama to the style and emphasizing the wearer’s cheekbones. This style channels black hair styles and culture as a whole but is also refreshingly unique.
3. Purple Flair
Excellent use of contrast characterizes this fun yet seductive look from Marcos Doss of Marcos Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC. This hair style appears simple and conservative from the rear, where the hair is long and straight, but a bold accent of purple in the front conveys forward-thinking complexity. The purple streak is part of a gorgeous, long curl of hair on the right side of the face, while the left offers a short, elegant curl that sticks close to the skin. This original style, however, is short and sleek with a hint of gorgeous purple in the front where the bang area flips softly and naturally to the side. She has a slight wisp on the shorter side which accents the neatly shaped style. This trendy asymmetrical cut is a one-of-a-kind that is sexy, creative and fun. Trendy yet unique, dazzling yet fun, this style is a winner.
2. Sleek and Tapered Razor Cut
If you’re afraid that you won’t be able to manage any dramatic style created in hair salons, this style will alleviate your concerns. This modern cut from Freda Barnes of Xpressions Hair Salon in Tallahasse, FL offers femme fatale appeal thanks to mid-length hair at the crown that flows into sculpted bangs. Using a razor on the sides and back of the head provides a sleek look to draw attention to your face and volume-rich hair at your crown. To achieve this look, the back and sides are cut ultra-close while the crown and bangs are left longer. Leaving volume at the crown creates a full, thick look. The bangs are carefully sculpted with a scissor to create a wispy, feathered look. The long bangs frame your face and hit at the eyes. The best part – there’s virtually no maintenance required!
1. Cascading Curls
And the most viewed style for 2011 was created by Lateasha Damon from Exclusive Designs Hair Salon in Florence, SC. This cut is fit for a queen, with elegant curls flowing down the back just past shoulder-length. A high crown of tight curls adorns the top of the head, while short strands above the forehead provide an unobstructed view of the face. Dramatic yet classy.
There are few entertainers with as much style as Rihanna. The singer, who is best known for her hit songs, “Umbrella,” “Disturbia,” “Don’t Stop The Music,” and “S&M,” is often praised for her unique style, commonly being called a pioneer when it comes to fashion. It’s her hair, however, that has recently been turning heads.
In the past, Rihanna, who is of African American decent, caused quite a stir after dying her hair a bright red in mid 2010. She kept this fire engine red hair color for over a year, visiting several hair salons in order to maintain the color. Despite keeping her hair bright, she would often change the hair styles from short to long to curly and everything else in between.
Rihanna has recently been spotted without her brightly colored hair, however. At Rihanna in Concert at the O2 Arena in London on
October 6th, 2011, Rihanna was spotted with a much more natural looking scalp. Her hair was a beautiful chestnut brown and of medium to long length just past her shoulders. The hair was wavy with curls towards the bottom and seemed to suit the singer just as well as her previous hair styles have, but with a much more natural looking appearance.
With Rihanna being so well known for her previous red hair, it’s unclear whether she will be keeping this more natural appearance. Many believe that it may be more bentifical to the African American community to see more black hair styles that look natural, rather than parading around in an obviously fake color.
Surely if Rihanna is able to embrace her more natural black hair styles, others will as well.
This hair style was create in a much simpler way, unlike Rihanna’s last hair style, which cost as much as £2,000 a day at local hair salons. With this hair style, all that was needed is to take large sections of brown medium length hair, wrap it in a curling iron for a few seconds, then release. This helps Rihanna to achieve the large waves. After that, simply tuck behind your ear and you’re ready to rock the stage.
Kelly Rowland is beautiful. Few people would contradict this fact, regardless of the hair styles she chooses to flaunt. Black hair style is constantly in the public eye because of the way a woman can change her entire look from day to day, based on their hair: extensions, weaves, braids, curls, colors, and even spikes.
Kelly Rowland hair styles are as equally varied. While her genuine and captivating beauty prevails, regardless of her usually dark brown tresses, Rowland’s hair styles have been referred to as “roller coasters” because what frames her million dollar face is always changing._
She has been both praised and criticized for her long tresses. When Kelly Rowland chooses to wear her hair long and straight, some hair experts have criticized that the ends look straggly and unhealthy. Others argue, though, that the long look is hot. In a recent appearance on X Factor, she received comments for her hair’s impressive shine. A favorite black hair style for Kelly Rowland is when she struts the runway with long and large curls. She has been noted for her red highlights and days with an Afro, too.
We all have good and bad hair days. Celebrities like Kelly Rowland have the unfortunate situation of being constantly judged by the beauty police. They catch photos of the fabulous, the frizzy, and the downright awful.
