Salon: Godly Image Hair Studio Inc.
Stylist: Rasheeda Berry

This style is very formal and might require a braid or extensions to complete the look. It  was created by Rasheeda Berry from Godly Image Hair Studio in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. Phone number (850) 862-3200. This is a very trendy style that is also very glamorous. Furthermore, it is a great look for those with long straight or wavy hair. However, it is also easy to get the look by flat ironing the hair and adding a few extensions. Here are more details on getting this fabulous look.

Styling
Creating the style takes a bit of time. However, a professional stylist is able to create this style with the wave of a magic comb, and a few styling tools. Start with hair that is freshly shampooed and conditioned. Straight and wavy hair should rock this style naturally. However, it is perfectly alright to relax or flat iron the hair for a smooth finish.

Separate the hair into 3 sections. There should be a crown section. Pin down the crown section. Part the hair in the back, down the middle to the nape of the neck. Pull hair into a knot and pin down firmly. Take a ponytail extension and attach to the crown of the head. Use your imagination to create a fabulous style that wraps around the top of the crown. Pin firmly to your own natural hair. Attach an extension to the left side and right side of the back of the head. Twist the extensions in the back together or braid together. Add an attractive hair clip. Spray with oil sheen or hair spray.

Would you like a professionally trained stylist to create this gorgeous formal, updo style for you? Contact Rasheeda Berry from Godly Image Hair Studio in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. Phone number (850) 862-3200 for more information on this hot and trending look for black hair styles.

First, it is important to remember that you should take tender loving care of your natural hair. Taking care of black hairstyles in its natural texture is very difficult for many women. Maintaining the style takes extra time for moisturizing and conditioning because hair worn in its natural state tends to be extra dry and ends break and split easily. Select a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically for natural hair. There are several good products on the market. Select one with plenty of moisturizing ingredients like Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Shea Butter. Wash and condition hair at least every week to 10 days. It is also a good idea to have the style professionally cut and trimmed at a hair salon or barber shop. However, a friend with hairstyling or cutting experience could help with trimming the hair. Stick with your own natural hair color or try a new color to make your style really unique. Make sure hair is in good condition, before coloring.

After washing and conditioning, apply a leave in moisturizer. Braid the hair in cornrows and let it dry naturally or you could use a hair dryer on a low setting. Never use a high setting. This will dry out the hair and make it brittle. Braiding gives the hair body and extra height. After drying, take out the braids or the cornrows. Spray the hair with a moisturizing solution, if desired. Use an Afro pick or wide tooth comb to style the hair. Take your comb and start at the back of the head. Start picking the hair out and lifting upward. Move to the left and right side, picking the hair up and out. Finally, style the hair in the top, lifting and styling.

Ashley Coutain’s “Soft Textures” Curly Asymmetric Hairstyle

Salon: Godly Image Hair Studio
Stylist: Ashley Coutain
Model: Regina
Make Up: Lori Miles

These magnificent curls that Ashley Coutain has mastered in creating are perfect for almost every event. Whether it be for casual Friday, a weekend barbecue, or even that annual charity gala, this hairstyle will deliver. This style is perfect, chic and also provides a style that lasts all day! It is also incredibly flattering for any face of any shape because of its volume and overall length. Creating this fantastic look is so easy to achieve! Without further ado, here is a step by step tutorial in creating Florida native, Ashley Coutain!
Step One:
Start out with dry hair and evenly spray on your heat protectent spray. Blow dry it to avoid damaging and drying out the hair even more with a lot of moisture whilst curling it.
Step Two:
Turn on your 11/2″ curling iron to whatever temperature is best suited for your hair types. (Applying hot heat to fine, thin hair is incredibly bad for it while those with thicker, more course hair it would be perfect).
Step Three:
When your curling iron is hot and ready, start curling from the bottom up to about halfway. If you have very curly textured hair like me, you’re going to need to turn on your flat iron as well. In order to create this sleek look all curly flyaways must be tamed.
Step Four:
Continue curling hair until all of the hair has been styled. Lightly spray hairspray until the style is firmly set. It may be even better to both spray heat protectant and hairspray before styling if your hair is too sleek to hold a shape for long.
Step Five:
Enjoy! The best thing about a style like this is that it can easily be worn for a few days! Instead of washing your hair and ruining the style, try to lightly comb it out to make the curls more relaxed and silky.

Fish Tail with Hair Color Hairstyle from Tanisha Higgins

The fish tail with hair color hairstyle for women is gaining popularity amongst today’s trendy young women. It is classy, trendy, and eye-catching. The hair color adds a touch of excitement at the front whereas the backside retains the neutral black color to create a balance. It is ideal for the young women who are looking for a little bit of adventure and are outgoing.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Create Fish Tail with Hair Color Hairstyle

To create this hairdo does not take your time, as it requires that you create the fishtail right down at the center of your head. The following steps will take you through to creating fish tail with hair color from Tanisha Higgins.

Preparation

Wash hair to ensure it remains clean.
Blow-dry to straighten
Comb your hair towards the center as if you are preparing for a Mohawk.
Plait one line from the crown of your head all the way to the back.
Weave on a lengthy hair extension ensuring that it is lower than the shoulder length to create a great illusion.
At this point, the weave is hanging loose on either side of your hair.
Segment your hair at the front and apply hair color of your choice. In this case, hot pink is a common color of choice. Alternatively, you can attach hair extensions of a different color.

Creating the Fish Tail with Hair Color Hairstyle by Tanisha Higgins

Segment your hair at the crown of your head by pulling two ends on either side of the weave. You will have three hair strands.
Start to plait at the center as you would a ponytail. However, ensure that you do not tighten it. The idea is to create waves at the crown.
Start with hair strands at the center as you gather towards the edges. Because they are loosely fitting, the waves pile on top of each other as you gather hair towards the edges thus creating a layered effect.
Make a knot to secure the layers in position.
Once that is complete, grab a section of hair and split it into two halves, which resembles the first step of making a French braid. Hold the two halves (each is considered a fishtail) separately in your hands.

N/B: To ensure that the fish tail is neat and uniform, start plaiting grabbing hair from the front of your hairline as you approach the sides.

Add another strand from the left.
Weave it over the left fishtail and under the right fishtail.
Pull another strand, this time from your right side of your hairline.
Weave it over the right and under the left fish tail.

Repeat the process on gathering strands of hair (step 6 through 9) until all your hair is complete with one complete fishtail.

Secure the bottom with a small and thin elastic hair tie to ensure it does not run or leave the fish tail lose.

The sides of your hair should be neatly pulled up, the crown showing off hair color as the back defines a neat and tight fish tail all the way to your back.

Next, you take the hair and fold it to your desired length. If you want short hair, keep the ends even. If you prefer the hair a little longer, separate the ends where one side is longer than the other. Now you have to loop the hair into the hook and close the latch securely. Then, you gently slide the hook back underneath the braids.
When the hook has been removed, take to fingers to create an opening at the loop, twist the end of the hair and pull through the loop twice. Finally, separate the hair into two parts, tie and secure tightly. Repeat these steps throughout the braid pattern till its full.
Following the steps previously stated, you can end up with extensions that blend-in with most African-American hair types. Curls like this are especially manageable with hair that has been pre-curled with a twist-out or bantu-knot-out if you use leave out instead of the traditional part. With-the correct technique the hair can be worked into an invisible side part or middle part.
This hair can serve as a go-to hairstyle for anyone since its realistic, affordable, amazing texture, reusable, and worth your money. Maria Coleous of Godly Image Hair Studio absolutely slayed this hairstyle and with this hair everyone will also envy your new tresses.

How to wear this sisterlocks
The “Swirl for Fun” dreadlock hairstyle involves the introduction of light waves into the otherwise straight locs. The locs are rolled up and left to set for a short while before being released.

Normally, this sisterlock hairstyle is used on naturally long hair to support the waves and styling.

First, we start with a simple tip in adding highlights:

Assemble:
• A mixing bowl• Off the shelf highlighting hair crème or henna kit• A larger tint brush for mixing the color• Plastic gloves

1. Start with dry hair, then use your creme hair color brand named product.
2. Mix the developer with the color crème.
3. Paint a few thin highlight streaks down from the roots to the ends of the hair.
4. Thinly brush highlights around the sides and the back of the hair. Don’t worry about perfect spacing the streaks, because highlights are just cool in any fashion.
5. Leave the highlighting color on, according to instructions.
6. Rinse, shampoo, and condition.

Styling Your Hair
1. Blow dry your hair to remove most of the moisture out of it.
2. Use a paddle brush to help make your hair smooth.
3. Using your blow dryer and your brush, blow dry small sections of hair beginning near the neck.
4. Part your hair with a middle section and continue drying until hair is dry.
5. Use a 1 ¼ inch flat iron and bevel hair on the sides and back, away from the face. Keep in mind when you start curling this style to only curl the bottom half of the hair strand.

For the top and sides, of your straight hair, put a small amount of hair serum in your hands, rub, and pull through the end curls to break them up and give them a loose look. Master hair stylist, Shea says, yes, for added hold, you can spray the curls with a light holding hairspray or a textured spray.

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

Salon: A Heavenly Place in Hair

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
