Apryl Mcabee’s “Purple Hawk” Mohawk Updo Hairstyle

The Mohawk is very striking indeed, particularly when viewed from the side, when you can see how high the middle hair is in relation to that on the sides. The stylist begins by trimming the hair short except for that middle area, which looks somewhat like a lizard crest. Some in the front is extra long and hangs over the head. It also extends shortly below the neck line (see the back view on the Universal Studios page for this style; they always provide four photos of those they post, one from each angle). She or he then uses curlers for further styling, and concludes by spraying or dyeing the long hair red violet. The color is brightest in the overhanging section. Also when viewed from the front, the whole head of the model seems to taper upwards, almost like a hill.
Red-violet is one of the best colors for hair; certainly if the person on whom it is done has hair that is naturally black — as is the case in these pictures — that color provides a pleasant tonal contrast while at the same time blending in; there is not so much contrast that the colors clash. The color of the hair dye also fits in well with the wearer’s eyeshadow.
This style was created by Apryl Mcabee from Hair Solutionz by Apryl in Laurel, MD. Her phone number is (240) 586-4094. Ms. Mcabee has created four other styles depicted at Universal Studios, a site that brings together the hairstyles created by coiffeurs and coiffeuses from all across the nation. Those who have had their hair done at her studio think that her services are wonderful and are impressed by the affordable prices and by the beauty of the place, which is about as great as her customers’ hair when Apryl has finished the job!

Individuals looking for a change in hairstyle or haircut, why not consider medium length hairstyle with layers, which is ideal to give you a professional look, but at the same time ensuring that you have a fun and welcoming appearance. This hairdo by Wendy Perry adds that edge you are looking for. You can play around with the color and it can go well with right about any female.

The following is a step-by-step guide on how to create a medium length hairstyle with layers to ensure a complete sassy look. It is recommended for medium length hair and is definitely among some of the best black hairstyles this season. In no time, you will create fun flips with your hair.

Preparation

Wash hair thoroughly to clean and ensure you get rid of dirt.

Before styling your hair, you need to ensure that it is clean. Using a good shampoo, wash your hair thoroughly and rinse it with warm water to ensure you get rid of dirt and extra fat content.

Blow-dry your hair to straighten and remove all tangles

Comb your hair to get rid of any tangles and complete this step by blow-drying your hair to ensure that it is straight and that all tangles are free. This helps to identify the positions you need for the next step. Your hair receives that attractive look at this point, awaits layering and the desired cuts, and snips.

Creating the desired layers

Part your hair

The purpose of parting your hair is to help you identify where to snip the hair to ensure that the snips are even and uniform. When parting, you are required to style it too in the direction desired. Provide a cut allowing a side fringe towards your right.

Snip hair one layer after another

Create small snips across the different parts you create on step 1. It is important that you do not comb your hair down to prevent a continuous flow from your hair. To effectively layer your hair, you need to leave the spacing, which also ensures it is full.

Oil and wax your hair

Oil your hair to provide a shine.
Wax your hair by pouring hair wax on your palm and wax every layer separately. Scrunch the ends of your hair to give that desired lift. This leaves your hair with flips that are also flexible.

Complete this hairstyle by providing a definite style as the hair has definite layers. You can finalize on the last touches if hair shifted positions as you were waxing.

Young Sassy and Unique hair Salon introduces a new hairdo from Kenya Young. It is a very striking hairstyle indeed, with the hair worn long, and twined around many times. When viewed from the back, the auburn highlights are accentuated by the brunette long tresses underneath.

 Here is the way it is done.

The first thing that we do is to use a blow-dry crème to prepare the hair. Next, we blow-dry the hair with a comb attachment so that it will be straight. Using a flat iron, we then smooth the hair gently, starting at the nape of the neck, and bend the ends lightly. We backcomb the hair lightly, starting at the neck and working our way up to the occipital bone — the trapezoidal bone that forms the rear and lower section of the skull. After styling the hair according to the desire of the customer, we use our special shine-enhancing spray, which makes the hair look bright and shiny without adding on too much extra weight.
This style was created by Kenya Young from Young Sassy & Unique Hair Salon in Durham, NC. Phone number (919) 444-9089. I personally think that it fits in perfectly with her overall appearance and hair color — she has dark skin and naturally dark red hair. Throughout most of her life, she has had a passion for the hair industry, and has experience with customers of all hair textures and lengths. During the past three years, she attended the National Education Symposium in order to learn more about black hairstyles in particular. She has created a number of short and long hairstyles, all of which can be viewed on the website of Universal Studios (along with those of many other prominent stylists), and she has also opened up a shop of her own.

One of the best things about natural hair is that it is versatile and is capable of being styled in a variety of ways. This loose, curly afro look was created by Kenya Young of Young Sassy & Unique Hair Salon which is located in Durham, NC. The following text will discuss how you can go about recreating this look in eight easy steps. Feel free to give Kenya a call at (919) 444-9089 and let her create your next signature look.

Step 1: Moisturize
As is the case with most natural hair, manipulating dry hair can cause a significant amount of breakage and damage. So the night before you begin the process of creating your loose, curly afro, you should make sure your hair is well moisturized. Use a little coconut oil or olive and work it through your hair.

Step 2: Detangle
Start by taking your hair in sections and use your fingers to detangle. Sometimes adding a little conditioners can make this process much easier. You may have several different textures, so try to be gentle with your hair.

Step 3: Rinse and Deep Condition
Rinse out your conditioner and apply a deep conditioner. Put on a heating cap and sit under the dryer for half an hour or, if you would like to avoid using heat, sit inside of a steam shower.

Step 4: Final Rinse and Apply Your Styling Product
Rinse away the deep conditioner with cold water and dry your hair–preferably with something other than a towel because it tends to absorb moisture. Apply a generous amount of styling product, such as Kinky Curly Knot Today, from root to tip.

Step 5: Gel and Smoothe
Choose a side at the front of the head that you would like to smoothe down. Use a styling gel, such as Ampro to create a small section of hair that will not be teased out. Use bobby pins to secure it.

Step: 6: Separate and Roll
Separate your hair into sections and execute a roller set. You may need a spray bottle of water to keep their hair moist and more easily manageable throughout this process. It’s important to note that the bigger the roller you use, the more volume you will achieve. So it’s best to use jumbo rollers.

Step 7: Dry
Allow your hair to dry completely. Depending on your preferences, you may want to air dry or sit underneath a dryer. Avoid touching or manipulating your hair at this point.

Step 8: Separate and Tease
When the hair has dried completely, remove the rollers and being to separate you hair into smaller sections so that it covers all of the gaps in your head and it looks full. You can then begin to tease your hair. How much you tease will depend on how much volume you prefer.

What ladies love most about the Mid Length Ombre Hairstyle is that it gives them the elegant look. The color streaks on both sides that start very high and end as you move to the roots enhance the incredible sun-kissed effect.

How to create a Mid Length Ombre Hairstyle:

Once you have selected the color of your choice, you need to decide where you want the fade to stop. Before you add anything to the hair, brush it and make sure there are no tangles left in the hair. Follow the instructions written on the bleach manual and mix the bleach.
Divide your hair into sections then start bleaching from the end and work your way up. You should let the bleach set depending on how light you want your hair to look then wash it out. Dry your hair and style it as usual.
You may not get the best results if you decide to do it yourself. At this point you may need the services of the creator of Mid Length Ombre Hairstyle, Terrill Allison from Marcus Doss Salon in Fayetteville, NC. For more information call (910) 476-4064.

Rasheeda Berry’s “Afro Centric” Natural Hairstyle

Take a look at Rasheeda Berry’s Afro Centric Natural Hairstyle. One thing is for certain. Black hairstyles are very versatile. Flip it, curl it, straighten it, or wear natural styles that show the beauty of the kinky texture. Add a bold hair color to make it look updated and trendy. This natural style was created by Rasheeda Berry from Godly Image Hair Studio in Ft. Walton Beach, FL,. However, it is truly possible for anyone to get this gorgeous Afro Centric Natural Style with the inspirational tips in this article.

Styling
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

June 14, 2015 in ASHLEY WHEELER, Black Hairstyles, Clipper Cut Women's Hairstyles Gallery, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, GODLY IMAGE HAIR STUDIO INC., Uncategorized


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.
