Shae Thompson’s “Hot Chocolate” Sew In Weave Hairstyle

May 25, 2015 in A HEAVENLY PLACE IN HAIR, Black Hairstyles, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, Long Hairstyles Gallery, SHAE THOMPSON, Uncategorized

Salon: A Heavenly Place in Hair
Stylist: Shae Thompson
Model: Leola
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

Please note that this hairstyle was created by Shae Thompson who is located at A Heavenly Place in Hair and can be reached at (850)-243-2297. Today we will be helping you create the “Hot Chocolate”, a variation on the sew in weave hairstyle which has become so popular today. This hairstyle is perfect for many situations, formal or casual occasions. Without any further ado, let us get started with helping you create this sexy look in a couple easy steps.
First use a gentle cleanser on your hair so that you can get started. Part your hair as you will need to have to specific sections to work with this hair. Make sure that your hair is clearly off to one side or the other and then we recommend blow drying each side. This will help your look stay and creates a base to work with. Comb the rest of your hair into ringlets using a barrel curling iron. Make sure that you take your time on this part as it is a essential for this look. Once you have the ends of your sections that you portioned off curled we can begin the slightly more tricky part of this look. Once you have the curls at the tips of your hair you will have to straighten the area near the roots. This is usually the most difficult part, and if you’re having trouble it may be best to straighten your hair before you add the curls, but here is how we recommend it. Your hair should be slightly damp so use a straightening iron up to the curls. This will allow you to have a straight hair transition into curls which is what we are looking for. We recommend applying some sort of hair spray to keep the straightened portion and the curls for however long you need this look to hold up for. Finally we recommend using a light spray to make sure that everything holds in place and your hair has that extra volume and color. It will tame your hair, but also give some shine to grab the attention of people. This look is perfect as a hair-do for those women who are looking for that special look. Once again this hairstyle was created by Shae Thompson and if you want to check out any of her other incredible hairstyles you can find her at A Heavenly Place in Hair.

There are lots of different hairstyles that you can do the cropped side look. This look combines the color and curls with this sexy look. This specific awesome hairstyle was created by Tracie Esmond at the Girlfriends Beauty Salon in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida so if you want the stylist who created this look check her salon out. Her salon is a pinnacle of style and we would really recommend her work. Now onto the exciting part, how to create this amazing look. Firstly, you will have to have a portion of your hair dyed which is simple enough. Just portion off a small part of the front of your hair you can dye it to go with your hairstyle. Now that we have everything set up it is best to start by adding some styling gel through your hair (about ping-pong ball size should be more than enough). Part your hair at an angle over one of your eyes and then portion off the left side. Blow dry the left side and use a brush going from roots to tips which will allow you to easily achieve the simplistic, yet beautiful part of this look. Finish the swept fringe on one side by using the curling iron and use a medium hold hair spray on this part. This look is not the hardest to create, but looks amazing. This sexy look works for any situation, but really works for formal situations. Once again remember to check out Tracie Esmond for more on hairstyles like this and her salon.

Moms are always worried about their child’s hair. They look for one of those black hairstyles that are easy to maintain, while keeping their child’s hair healthy. One of the most popular kid’s hairstyles making the rounds are updo’s, like the style created by Tanisha Higgins from A Heavenly Place in Hair that is located in the Ft. Walton Beach, Fl. area. Take a look at the style. It looks a bit complicated, but it might just save you money and protect your child’s hair in the long run.

First, it is important to make sure that you wash the child’s hair. Shampoo and condition completely with a product that is suitable for kid’s sensitive hair and scalp. Now, that the hair is super clean, take a comb and separate the hair into several sections in the back just like the child in the picture. Apply a hair oil or hair moisturizer to each hair section. Oil the scalp and completely moisturize the hair, starting at the root to the end of the hair to seal in the moisture. Blow dry the hair on a low to medium setting.

Next, start at one section in the back of the head. Start twisting the hair up to the crown of the head and clamp the ends down with clips. Complete the entire back section of the hair in the same fashion. Next, brush back the hair on the top and the crown and twist into a secure ponytail at the crown with the twist under the ponytail. Add ribbons, bows, or headbands for extra decoration.

Like this look? Black hairstyles change rapidly, but kid’s hairstyles and updo’s like the one created by Tanisha Higgins, at A Heavenly Place in Hair that is located in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, are here to stay. Contact Tanisha Higgins for more information.

Today we will be covering the hairstyle known as an updo with a bang. This is the perfect hairstyle for almost any occasion. It looks sexy while still maintaining a professional look. Before we start the tutorial please note that this look was created by Tracie Esmond who you can find at Girl Friends Beauty Salon in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. Without any further ado, let’s get started with creating this perfect look.
First you want to start with dry hair, this is pretty important for the updo part of this look. Afterward portion off part of your hair with a thick scrunchy or rubber band to gather your hair on towards the top back of your head. Take about a third of the ponytail and move it off towards the side. Leave the third out and now create a bun using the other two-thirds of your hair. Once you have secured this bun, make sure that you have this firmly secured, then you can take the third that you have set aside and braid it. You then want to tie off this off. Secure the braid around the bun and to make sure that it stays put. Now onto the front or the harder part of this hairstyle for most people. First you want to dampen the part of your hair that is not in a bun. comb the right portion of your hair off to the side, for this specific updo part of your fringe should hang over your to make the hairstyle look that much better. Next towards the tips of the fringe you want to comb it so that it angles slightly upwards. After this you want to comb the hair below the bun forwards so that it seems to merge with your fringe. Do the same on the left portion that you already combed. Finally, you want to apply some hair-spray so that this hairstyle stays for as long as you want. This hairstyle works for almost any situation and works especially well for leisure and professional surroundings.

Lobster Tail and Waves Hairstyle from Pamela Webster

May 9, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Braids Hairstyles Gallery, GREG'S PROFESSIONAL BARBER & BEAUTY SALON, Hair Color, Mohawk Hairstyles Gallery, PAMELA WEBSTER, Uncategorized

Salon: Greg’s Professional Barber & Beauty Salon
Stylist: Pamela Webster
Model: Allegra
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

The following is a step by step of how to create this gorgeous style. To be able to achieve the above look all you need are; anti-frizz comb, hair pins, three strands of hair extension and the hair needs to have been relaxed and dyed.

Take seriously the dyeing process of sections of the hair (middle area) to ensure the color comes out right and also the health of the hair isn’t affected. After dyeing, deep condition the hair to close the hair cuticles. Then spray the roots of the hair with a texturizer to remove any natural oils that can flatten the hair. Seek professional advice from Pamela at Greg’s Professional Barber & Beauty Salon on which dye, conditioner and texturizer you can use.
Separate the hair into three sections; the two sides and the middle. Brush the two sides and clip them at the bottom of the head.
Divide the mid-section into three sections, begin by braiding a smaller section from the front, just above the beginning of the left eye; add hair as you move in a wave like manner to the end the head,it resulting into a tight French braid. Secure the ends using a hair pin.
To achieve the waves on the sides of the head, apply hair gel as you comb it through towards the back of the head. Using an anti-frizz comb, comb the hair to the right, then hold it with a finger as you comb it to the left and continue until the back of the head. Take three strands hair extension and braid it into a long rope, pin it around the mid-section and finish by forming a conch shell using both the French braid and hair extension at the nape of the neck.

This hairdo was created by Pamela Webster at Greg’s Professional Barber & Beauty Salon located on 1917 Duval Street Mobile AL 36606. It’s open on Tuesdays to Saturdays from 8:30am to 6:00pm. For reservations, please call (251) 473-9575.

Medium Bonded Hairstyle with Highlights from Marcus Doss

A bob is a very versatile hairstyle. It can be dressed up or dressed down. It’s an ideal style for medium length hair. Bob’s fit any face shape and don’t have to be styled daily because its a style of its own.There are many methods to creating a bob but this is by far one of the easiest, DIY methods. First part your hair into three sections. Make a center part through about one third of your head, then part horizontally. The first two sections should look like pigtails and the last section is at the nape of your neck. Next, cut the section that’s at the nape of your neck. This cut will be the bottom of your bob and should be cut at the desired length. Lastly, cut the pigtails sections. Be sure to make sure that it blends with the back of your hair. Remember that that the bob should be longer in the front and shorter in the back. After cutting the sections, clean up the look.Next you will need to dye the bottom section of your hair. If you do not wish to dye your own hair, you can either sew in or clip in extensions that are the color you please. Lastly, you will need to use a flat iron or curling iron to flip your hair. All of the flips should be flipped back. The top part of the hair should be flipped harder ( more of a bend) than the bottom layers. This will create a feathered look. The model in the picture however has both bangs and layers which are harder to cut yourself at home.If you prefer to have your layers cut or your hair colored professionally; or you want to try out other black hairstyles, contact Marcus Doss at the Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC.

Short Tapered Bond Black Hairstyle from Marcus Doss

There are a couple signature hairstyles for those with short hair. The one that we will be presenting is Marcus Doss’s short tapered bond. This look is timeless because it works for different lengths and has different styles, but all of them have the sexy look that every women wants. This hairstyle can take a little bit of time to perfect because of the intricacies, but after this quick look you should be able to understand and reproduce this hot look.
First let’s get started with our base. Start by wetting your hair, volume can be a very complex matter with this look. You may want to layer your hair first so your hair will be light enough for some of the trickier movements later in finishing this look. Keep in mind that this is not necessary, but if you find yourself struggling it may prove useful. Next, apply a smoothing product to your fringe area and then you can apply a curl enhancing product. You want to then blow dry the previously sectioned off fringe area. After this you can air dry the rest of your hair. For someone who is looking for a more stylish look we would suggest blowing the hair dry with a styling brush. You should smooth sections of hair towards the front or back of your hair respectively depending on what kind of look you want. A faster alternative would be to wet your hair and then use a styling brush to dry and then finish the look with some gell to keep it in place. Keep in mind this method is way faster, but obviously not as professional as the previously mentioned one. After finishing the look we would recommend applying some hairspray to make sure that the look holds all day. This look is amazing for all outings, casual to formal this look will impress. You can view more stylish incredible hairstyles at Marcus Doss Salon and we hope you enjoy your new look.

This body wrap is a great hairstyle for any occasion. It has great body and is a simple, yet chic style. There are also multiple ways you can achieve a body wrap. This is a great style for those who do not have time in the morning to do their hair and prefer to do it at night. To achieve this look, there are three different methods; you can wrap your hair, roller set it or use a heated styling tool such as a curling rod, curling iron or flat iron.Wrapping hair can be difficult so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work for you. You can either dry wrap your hair or use setting lotion. Setting lotion only works well if you have a hooded dryer or else it will not dry properly at night. Brush or comb your hair forward at the crown of your head. Part your hair on the side then sweep your hair in a circular motion literally wrapping it around your whole head. Brush your hair to catch any fly aways. You can use bobby pins or duck bill clips if you would like to secure the wrap however, there may be a bend in your hair in the morning if you choose to use them. After smoothing your wrap, use a scarf or bonnet to tie up your hair. If you are using setting lotion, saturate your hair with the setting lotion, wrap it, then sit underneath a dryer hood. When you take down the wrap, style your hair as desired. To roller set your hair, use big rollers or flex rods and roll hair sideways and away from your face. If you are using a heating tool, flip your hair away from your face. If you wish to sleep on your hair after curling it, you can pin curl it with bobby pins to keep the same look in the morning.If you like this long hairstyle or desire another black hairstyle by Marcus Doss, contact Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville NC by calling (910) 483-3870

Long hairstyles were once very high maintenance black hairstyles. Women simply love the look of black hairstyles with loose curls that frame the face sexily. This is certainly a very trendy look that is easy to create with the right tools, accessories, and hair. Maintaining the look is also much easier today, thanks to all the great hair products for black hairstyles that are on the market today. Check out this gorgeous look. This style was created by Marcus Doss from Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville. NC. You can contact the salon at phone number (910) 483-3870.

Getting Long Hairstyles with Loose Curls
Black hairstyles range from a buzz cut to long flowing locks with loose curls. Women with long hair are naturals for this look. However, the girls rocking the shorter hairdo can get the look too. This is a very trendy look that you can wear any time of the year. For this look, it is suggested that you use long loose hair extensions that are at least 20 inches long. Gather together hair accessorizes and tools. For example, a few combs, hair clips, pins, hair spray, and hair extensions. It is also a good idea to get a friend to help with application and styling.

First shampoo and condition hair. Blow dry the hair. If your hair is not chemically straightened, you might opt to flat iron your hair at this point. Next pull all your hair back and clip on top of the head. Use wefted extensions with hair clips. Part a section of hair at the back of the head, close to the neck and apply the first extension. Cover that extension with your own natural hair. Clip in several more weft extensions with loose curly hair to the crown of the head. Leave a lot of your own hair out at the top. Part your own hair in the middle and comb it back and over the loose curly hair extensions. Get creative and use a rat tail comb to carefully arrange your hair and the extensions. Make sure they blend well together. Finish with light hair spray.

Black hairstyles have certainly developed over the years. Now, it is possible to try several looks or change your style at any time. Certainly, this is a very glamorous look that will get lots of admiring glances. Would you like this look? This style was created by Marcus Doss from Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC.

If you are longing for the big sexy curls in the model’s hair, get started by collecting the right hair tools. Gather together a curling iron, flat iron, pins, hair clips, hair dryer, hair spray, hair sheen, and a few combs. Those with shorter hair might prefer to add a few clip in hair extensions for a fuller look.

First, it is important for the hair to be freshly shampooed and conditioned. Make sure that the hair is dry before starting the styling process. Apply hair sheen or hair protecting creme to the hair before getting started. Flat iron the hair, if desired. Next, take your hair and gather it into sections. Grab the crown hair and clip into one section. Grab the left side and clip into a section. Grab the right side and clip into a section. Grab the back and clip into a section. Start with the back section near the neck. Take the comb and section off hair and curl with the iron. Continue curling to crown. Continue curling all the hair sections in the same way. Make loose sexy curls by wrapping the hair around the curling iron and holding for about 15 to 20 seconds. Then gently remove the curling iron. Let the curls cool. Take your comb and part the front of the hair. Comb the right section forward and let it caress the face. Take the left section and pin backwards behind the ear. At this point, those with shorter hair might like to add a clip in hair extension for a fuller look. Add a contrasting extension in gold or brown under your natural curls. Blend in your hair with the extension. Take hair spray and spray the curls lightly.

Make sure that the hair is freshly shampooed and conditioned to keep it healthy. Add a bit of hair moisturizer to the hair. Blow dry the hair. Next, pull the hair back and clip it on top of the head. All that is required is several extensions to complete the look. Take a comb and part the hair in the back about two inches above the neckline. Take a weft hair extension and clip in from ear to ear. Comb some of your hair over the extension. Clip in another extension and cover with your own natural hair. Continue to the top of the head with the clip in extensions. Take your time and blend in well with your own hair. Once you get to the top of your head, take some of your own hair and pull it back over the hair extensions.

This fun, flirty, long hairstyle is perfect for any occasion. It can be worn for a night with the girls, a first date, or even something a little more casual. This layered look frames the face and will get compliments from everyone. These feminine, loose curls are perfect for spring and will bring the attention of many. To achieve this sensual, sultry look created by Marcus Doss, you will only need a curling iron or wand, a few hair clips or pony tail holders and finishing spray. If your hair is not the desired length, try adding hair extensions at the bottom (this can also be used to give a fuller look).To achieve this look, start by brushing out your hair and/or hair extensions. Next, section your hair into 3 sections and hold it with either the clips or ponytail holders. The sections should be horizontal. Next take the bottom section and grab half of the hair (The bigger chunks of hair that you grab, the more loose your curls will be). Brush out the section of hair then curl it, holding it for at least 30 seconds. To create a longer lasting curl, after removing the curling iron, try gathering the hair in a coil until the hair cools then release. Repeat these steps for the rest of the sections. When you get to the side bangs, make a center part and curl the hair towards the side to create the wings. After all the hair is curled, gently run your fingers through the hair to loosen the curls a bit. Fix any curls that are unruly until you get the desired look. After the look is achieved, use finishing spray to add shine. Try a minimum hold spray so that these beautiful loose curls remain touchable.To achieve this look or other black hairstyles, feel free to contact Marcus Doss at the Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC.

Sew In Long Black Hairstyle from Marcus Doss

This style by Marcus Doss is a full sew in weave which is a great protective style for natural or transitioning hair. It will help to promote hair growth and make styling your hair in the morning much simpler. Your hair will stay braided underneath your hair extensions. It will remain untouched and you will be able to heat style your hair extensions as much as you would like without fearing heat damage to your own hair. To create this style, you will need a paddle brush, a heating tool, and ponytail holders or duck bill clips. First make a vertical part in order to have one long section. Use the ponytail holder or clips to pin back the rest of your hair so that you only work with one section at a time. Curl the bottom of your hair without curling the top two inches. Continue to part your hair and curl sections until you have curled all of your hair. For the bangs, you will need to make side swept bangs. To make a side swept bang, grab your bang and curl in an upwards direction and to the side of your head. If you prefer to do your hair at night, you can use flexi rods to get the same fabulous results. If you do use flexi rods, use a medium size or else your curls will fall before the end of the day or they may be too tight. Try using a light hold finishing spray to add shine and keep this long hairstyle looking its best for the whole day. Also, try a leave in conditioner in your hair extensions or an oil sheen daily to keep the quality of the hair. Although it’s not your natural hair it still has to be treated as such.If you wish to have your sew in completed by a professional or other black hairstyles done, contact Marcus Doss at Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville NC.

Certainly, up do’s are one of the most beautiful and purely feminine hairstyles for a woman to wear. Creating an updo with natural or relaxed hair is easier than you might think.

Achieving the Look
Take a look at the model in this picture. Her hair looks very natural and thick. However, it is easy to achieve this look with the addition of a few well placed hairpieces. Buy these at local department stores, hair salons, or even online. First, gather together all the items that you will require to create this look. You will need a wide tooth comb, rat tail comb, brush, hairpins, and a high quality synthetic or human hair piece, hair spray, and hair gloss.

It is very trendy to wear black hairstyles that are roller set for long hairstyles. This is another one of the most requested hairstyles at Marcus Doss Salon. In fact, Marcus Doss from Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC created this beautiful hairstyle. Women are starting to request more of the hot roller sets because they realize that they create big bouncy curls that last much longer. They add volume and richness to a hairstyle. The rollers are perfect for chemically relaxed hair, natural, or straight hair.

Creating Medium Hairstyles Look
First, it is important to start with medium length hair that is shampooed and conditioned. The hair should be chemically relaxed or straightened. This will give you the best results. Gather together all the items required to complete the look. You will need a rat tail comb for sectioning. Hot rollers for rolling the hair, hair clips, hair spray, and hair sheen. Take the hot rollers and start at the crown of the head in the front. Part the top or bangs section with the rat tail comb. Take a piece of hair and roll toward the back. Use the clips to hold hair in place on the roller. Roll entire top backwards. Go to both sides and roll hair backwards and clip hair to roller to hold in place. Complete the back of the head in the same fashion. Now, let the rollers set for 30 minutes or the length of time required for the hair to set.

The Comb Out
Make sure that the rollers have cooled down. Now, start removing all the rollers. Start at the front and work your way backwards. Take your fingers and give the curls a gentle tug to check elasticity and curl tightness. Take the rat tail comb and start working your way around the head gently. You might want to enlist the help of a friend for this process. Gently blend the curls together to make them fall naturally. Take the hair sheen and give it a quick spray. Follow with a gentle light sweep of hair spray. Add a bit of glam by sweeping one section of the hair to the side and back. Add a jeweled hairpin to hold in place. You could also add a hair extension or hair swatch in contrasting color to the top for a totally sexy look.

Short Bob Hairstyle with Hair Color from Marcus Doss

There are main variations of the infamous short bob haircut. It is a way where you can make your hair effortlessly look amazing and sexy. This short bob was created by Marcus Doss at Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville NC. They offer amazing styles and quality. Let’s get started, there are many different kinds of bobs, but today we will be showing you the way to have this high quality haircut with little to no work. So to preface, this is a style that can be used in a multitude of ways, you can have it smooth and sleek if you want to be more professional or you could have it curled to give a more of a playful, but still sexy look.
First, we will teach you how to do the curled version (note you will need a curling iron for this one). If you want to get the most volume for your hair you can just work with your normal texture, but you can blow dry you hair if you want. To get started you want to take a few sections around your the top of your head and wrap them around the iron. Remove the curl and gently pull your hair so that you do not get too much curl, but you still get some volume. Once you are finished curling the hair that you want, I would recommend not doing too much to keep this look more natural. Finally, add a little hair spray to keep this look in place as long as you want. This version of the bob haircut can be worn professionally and takes very little maintenance.
Now we’ll be showing you the more sexy and professional look. Keep in mind both these looks do not require tons of effort, but this is the style that Marcus specializes in and it really works. First, wet your hair and you want to make sure that you have a softer texture to start this look. You do not need a curling iron for this look, but you will need a bit more time to get this look working well. To start part your hair to one side and pull the front fringe away from your face. To secure your hair if it does not stay naturally then you can use bobby pins to keep it in place, but most people will not need this. Take some of hair that you have not pulled and allow it to stay over part of your forehead. You can brush your hair in the back if you want to add a little to this look. This look can take a little bit of practice to perfect, but after you figure out to do it can be a regular in your arsenal.
The short bob hairstyle is an amazing low maintenance look that can make anyone look sexy within minutes. I hope that you have learned something and be sure to check out Marcus Doss Salon!

Tracie Esmond’s Long Sassy Siren Ombre Hairstyle

From the runways to the red carpet to your local grocery store, the ombre look is everywhere. And it looks like it’s here to stay! Ombre is an incredibly versatile look because it can be gotten rid of fairly easily. As soon as you are tired with it, you can just chop it off. No need to re-color the hair. The ombre look is generally achieved by lightening the lower portion of one’s hair a few shades lighter than the natural shade. The look pictured above leans more towards a dip dye, and there is more than one way to achieve it. You can actually get your own hair dyed in this style, or you can install dyed extensions.

Method 1: Dyeing Your Own Hair
You Will Need:
A bleaching kit specifically designed to turn hair white, An old shirt, An applicator brush, A rattail comb, Hair clips, Wide tooth comb, Plastic gloves, Towels
How To:

1. Set up a chair and all of your supplies in an area with a mirror and a sink, covering the floor with some sort of plastic or towel to protect it.

2. Make sure the hair is clean and dry when you begin, so that the natural oils of the hair don’t interfere with the bleaching process.

3. Completely detangle hair with the wide tooth comb and section it into eight sections (more if you have longer and/or thicker hair).

4. Secure each section with a hair clip.

5. Mix the lightening ingredients according to the directions on the box.

6. Using the applicator brush, apply the mixture to the lower half of the hair, stroking from the top down.

7. After applying the mixture to each section, cover it in aluminum foil to halt it from contacting any other part of the hair.

8. Leave it on for the directed amount of time, then rinse it out thoroughly.

9. Be sure to take very good care of your hair after this, deep conditioning it on a weekly basis

Method 2: Dyeing Hair Extensions
If you are doing it this way, it is definitely best to work with a professional. Doing this on your own could result in damage to your extensions.

Long Hairstyle with “Glamorous Texture” from Ashley Coutain

This is a very bold, distinctive style that is sure to make you stand out no matter where you wear it. The front half of the hair is braided into three French braids, pompadour style and the surrounding hair is left loose. You can do this style using spiral braiding hair (attached using the crochet method) or by curling your actual hair in ringlet-type curls. Now unless you have hip length hair you won’t be able to get the exact same look pictured above, but the effect will still essentially be the same. If you are not using hair extensions, just skip down to the pompadour braiding section. In any case, this style will likely take a bit of time, and is best left for special occasions, but when you wear this is totally up to you.
Crochet Braiding:
You Will Need:Rubber bands, Rattail Comb, Wide toothed comb, Crochet needles, Spiral braiding hair (anywhere from 18”-22” of hair should be fine), Moisturizing styling mousse (apply to the braiding hair to lessen frizz and make separating it easier), Crochet hook.

How To:

1. Parting the hair into small sections, cornrow the hair from the crown of the head all the way to the nape, making sure the braid stays tight all the way through to avoid any complications later on.

2. Once the entire head has been braided, join the braids together, using either a rubber band or another braid.

3. With the hook pointing upward, slide it beneath the first braid on either side (it doesn’t matter, you choose).

4. Separate out a small piece of the braiding hair and, folding it in half, place the loop of hair inside the crochet hook and pull it through.

5. Using your hands, take the loose part of the piece of hair and pull it through the loop, tightening it so that covers the section of your hair.

6. Repeat steps 3-5 until the entire head is covered.

7. Trim if necessary

Pompadour Braiding:

1. Split the front half of the hair into three sections, securing each with a hair clip.

2. Fluff the section up with your fingers and then, keeping the hair elevated high above the scalp, tightly French braid only the very top portion of the hair

3. Make sure you keep the braid at least an inch above the scalp at all times.

4. Once you finish the braid, tie it with a rubber band. Double-check to make sure that the rubber band isn’t very noticeable and that it blends in well with the rest of the hair.

Hairstyles are essential for any woman who wants expression with their look. At A Heavenly Place in Hair, located in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. there are many choices for you to be on the top of your hairstyle game. A Heavenly Place in Hair has hairstyles for people looking for any type of look while providing expert advice on how to achieve each perfectly stylish hairstyle. Today we will be looking at a special type of updo. Without any further ado let us get started with helping you achieve this look.

This look is especially interesting because it can be used in a casual or formal setting. The best part about this style is the fact that is is super easy and looks good for any type of hair. All we need is a few bobby pins and a curling iron. First make sure that you have some texture to your hair; there are many products out there and you can call the staff at A Heavenly Place for a referral. First we’ll start with the back-end of this look. Divide your hair into two equal sections and then clip one section away. Start a twist by twisting a small section away from your face. Then pick up a smaller section of hair and twist it into the previous section. Keep twisting down and working toward your neck; picking up more sections and twisted them in until you have worked down the length of your hair. At this point the hair should be curling inward and wrap what you have twisted into a small bun and secure it in place with a pin. Now onto the harder part of this; the part that is propped up. There are obviously main ways to do this, but the easiest way is just with a curling iron. You can simply portion off two portions near the front of your hair that you will curl upward. Curl these two sections using your curling iron and make sure that you still have a little bit left in front to comb over. Once you have your two curls, make sure that they are on the larger side you may want to use hair spray or a product to keep it in place. This is an amazing look because it is not only professional, but unique and stylish. For more information or to have one of the talented artist at A Heavenly Place in Hair create this look for you, give them a call at (850) 243-2297.

The Super Coily Ponytail from Pamela Webster

April 8, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, GREG'S PROFESSIONAL BARBER & BEAUTY SALON, Hair Color, PAMELA WEBSTER, Ponytail Hairstyles Gallery, Uncategorized

Salon: Greg’s Professional Barber and Beauty Salon
Stylist: Pamela Webster
Model: Ashla
Make Up: Kisha

This style is absolutely stunning, a great hairstyle for black hair, and a lot less complicated then it initially appears. It can work great both for day and night. For this hairstyle, spiral ponytail extensions work best. To achieve the look seen above, look for ponytail extensions that are a shade or two lighter than the actual hair color, in a very curly style. The extension also should probably be lengthier than the average curly extensions; stay away from super short “pom-pom”-like ponytail extensions.
You Will Need:Styling gel (firm hold works best), Hair ties, Leave-in conditioner (optional), Wide-toothed comb, Boar bristle brush, Curly ponytail extension (see specifics above).

How To:
1. Start by totally detangling the hair using the wide-toothed comb. Having knots will make it almost impossible to get a slick look. Part the hair into sections, and in each section detangle from the ends of the hair and gradually work your way up the shaft until you are able to comb from the roots straight to the ends without interruption. Here you can (and probably should) apply a bit of leave-in conditioner if the hair is feeling a bit dry to prevent breakage.
2. Once the hair is tangle-free, apply the styling gel generously around the outer portions of the hair and use it to slick the hair back. It is very easy to use too much styling gel, so be a bit light-handed, and to choose a styling gel that can be washed out easily. Use the boar bristle brush to further smooth out unruly edges.
3. Tie the hair firmly into a ponytail at the top of the head. Double-check, and be sure that the ponytail isn’t tight enough to cause headaches, especially if the style is going to worn for a long period of time.
4. Braid the ponytail, and secure the braid with a rubber band so that it can be easily concealed beneath the ponytail extension.
5. Attach the ponytail extension to the base of the actual ponytail, inserting the “teeth” of the extension right in front of the hair tie.
6. Secure the lower portion of the hair tie with as many bobby pins as needed.
7. Enjoy your gorgeous hair!

Natural Twist Ponytail Hairstyle from Marie Coleus

Stylist: Marie Coleus
Model: Charmeeka

This hairstyle is absolutely perfect for a special occasion or a night out. It is also an excellent protective style for relaxed hair. Natural hair might have to be blown out to achieve the smooth look seen in the picture.

How To Create This Hairstyle On Your Own:
What You’ll Need:A wide-toothed comb, Smoothing Gel (for better hold), Hair tie, Bobby pins/hair clips, Rubber bands, Shine spray and/or a natural oil, Leave-in conditioner, Hair Extensions (Marley Hair is best, but any curly hair extensions will work just fine)
1. Section off hair and totally detangle it, combing from the ends and working your way up the shaft, until you can comb the hair from the roots without issue.
2. Section the hair diagonally, aiming for three very large sections.
3. Starting with the section closest to your right ear, apply leave-in conditioner to the hair. Keep in mind that the hair should not be coated with too much leave-in conditioner or left sticky. It should just feel moisturized.
4. “Seal” the section with your choice of shine spray or a natural oil. This will help the hair retain its moisture if the style is left in for longer than a day and add a healthy sheen to the hairstyle
5. Starting from the front of the section, twist the hair backwards. Keep the twist close to the scalp and try not to stop until you’ve twisted the entire section. If, for some reason, you have to stop mid-twist, be sure to use one of your bobby pins to hold the hair in place until you can restart twisting.
6. If pieces of hair escape the twist, slick them down with small amount of smoothing gel. Once you’ve twisted the entire section, secure it with a hair tie or a rubber band
7. Repeat steps 3-6 on the two sections of hair that remain.
8. After you’ve twisted the three sections of hair, go back through the twists and make sure that there are no loose sections that could cause the whole twist to come apart. If there are, secure them with a bobby pin.
9. Once all three sections are done and secured, it’s simply a matter of clipping the extensions to the hair secured in the rubber band.

Women are always searching for black hairstyles that give the hair a rest from all the chemical processing, flat irons, curling, and other treatments. They look for a style that also nourishes the hair and does not require frequent trips to the hair salon. That is exactly why natural hairstyles are the go to hairstyle for those women. Natural hairstyles are perfect for a day out on vacation or going to a high powered executive meeting. Clearly, they are a very versatile hairstyle for the modern black woman.

First, gather together the tools and products required to complete the look. The styling requires a rat tail comb, a wide tooth comb, and hair moisturizer. It is important to shampoo and condition the hair as usual. A favorite deep penetrating conditioner might be suitable for this purpose. Blow dry the hair on a low setting to avoid damaging the hair. It is also a good idea to apply a hair moisturizer before blow drying. Apply the moisturizer from the roots up to the ends of the hair. The very next thing to do is to section the hair. Designate one section for the top and clip the hair together. Designate one section for the right and left side and clip that section together. Designate one section for the back and clip together.

Now, use the rat tail comb to section off the hair into smaller pieces that you are going to twist. It is also a good idea to use your fingers to make smaller parts. Now, you are going to grab a bit of hair and twist one part over the other. Keep doing this method all over the head in a freestyle way. Twist toward the back to make the hair fall over the shoulders. Twist toward the face to make the twist fall toward the front of the shoulders and on the forehead or around the face. Let a friend help, if you are having trouble managing the twists. It might also be a good idea to add hair moisturizer to the twists. Run from the roots to the end to seal in moisture.

Hair is the essence of beauty for all women. It is the focal point of a woman’s appearance, which means that if her hair is styled well, that is 80% of her total look, no matter what she is wearing. The black skin toned woman is at the forefront of hair fashion in 2015, with short hair as the latest, hottest look. Tapered, layered hairstyles are simply more versatile, especially on black hairstyles for women. It is created by keeping the top longer than the sides, as it graduates into the neck.

This quintessential tapered black hairstyle is easy to maintain and it will never be out of style. As pictured, short hairstyles for black women is quite appropriate for women of all ages and lifestyles. Its shorter left and right sides are a unique feathered difference that lies close to the face as an added dimension to this style. The model’s hair is clipped close on the sides and the back, with the top left about two inches long to be styled adding height and accentuation in a lightly tousled, textured design.

To spice things up for 2015, there is nothing better than waking up black hairstyles with two tone color and shaping that blends together perfectly. This two tone hair color combination is a bold, fun statement that also adds depth to a hair style, plus it is a great look for thinning hair because it can make the hair look thicker. This hairstyle is more dramatic with its light and dark shades paired together. Two tone coloring is always great when the colors are from the same color family, such as cool shades or warm shades, so that they coordinate in a stunning contrast, as this hairstyle portrays.
