Step 5: Curl and apply oil sheen
Take small sections of the top of your head and curl each. Don’t create fully formed curl; rather use a curling a iron that is a little too big for the section you’re working on and make half curls. Each face towards the front of your head. After curling, spray a light sheen.

“Winter Fresh” Curly, Afro, Quick Weave Hairstyle from Latoya Dyson

January 25, 2016 in Black Hairstyles, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, Hair Color, La Cheveux Salon, Latoya Dyson, Uncategorized

Salon: La Cheveux
Stylist: Latoya Dyson
Model: Tonisha
Make Up: Ms. Jackee

If you’re looking for a look that’s fun and flirty, then look no further. Latoya Dyson from La Cheveux Salon in Peoria, AZ turns one of her black hairstyles into something curly, bold and beautiful. With the proper technique and a little knowledge, this style can easily be created in the comfort of your own home.

What You’ll Need:
Shampoo
Rat tail comb
Wrapping foam
Rollers
Hooded Dryer
Oil Sheen (spray or oil)
Styling Gel

Step 1: Shampoo
Shampoo your hair. Begin your style with a clean scalp. Not only will this ensure that the style lasts longer, but starting fresh also ensures that your curls look soft and have a lot of body.

Step 2: Apply wrapping foam
Apply a generous amount of wrapping foam to your entire head. Comb through your hair in order to remove any excess foam. Remember, you need enough so that your hair will be able to stick to the roller, but not so much that it completely weighs the hair down.

Step 3: Roll your hair
Hold rollers at an angle so as to create a ring curl effect. The larger the roller, the less defined your curls will be. So try to choose a size that is big enough to hold the length of your hair, but small enough to encourage as many ringlets as possible.

Step 4: Sit beneath hooded dryer
Allow your hair to dry. Depending on the length of your hair, you should sit between one to one and a half hours. Try to avoid touching the curls as they dry as your finger tips could possibly affect the mold.

Step 5: Remove rollers and pick curls
Take your hair down and separate your curls. When taking your hair down, it’s extremely important that it is bone dry before you attempt to separate and style. Damp hair leads to ill-formed curls and frizz.

Step 6: Sheen and smooth
Take a quarter size amount of sheen and work it through your curls. Also, take styling gel and add it to any visible parts of your hair line in order to smooth it over.

Creating curls that last takes attention to detail. If you would like to know more about quick weave hairstyles or curly hairstyles for black women, then get in touch with La Cheveux Salon in Peoria, AZ at (520) 252-9190. They are one of AZ’s premiere black hair salons.

Long, Soft and Sexy Curls from Jackie Evans

There’s nothing more flattering or feminine that long hairstyles that feature curls. In this image, Jackie Evans from All About You Salon & Boutique in Phoenix shows us just how you can take your everyday, ordinary wrap and turn it into something even more sophisticated. Let’s take a moment to discuss how you can create these soft curls on your own.

What You’ll Need:
Shampoo
Wide Tooth Comb
Setting lotion
Hooded Dryer
Oil
Marcel Irons

Step 1: Wash and detangle
Shampoo and comb through the hair. It’s easy for hair to become knotted and tangled between washes. This is especially true when it comes to longer hair. As you wash, take the time to remove any tangle you come across. After you rinse your hair, comb down it’s length to make sure that it will be easy to style.

Step 2: Apply setting lotion
Set your hair. Take a generous amount of setting lotion and evenly work it through every strand of hair. Comb the hair as you do this to ensure that it remains tangle-free. You should also use a towel to lightly pat away any excess or dripping lotion, as too much can cause a longer drying time and leave a white film behind.

Step 3: Sit beneath dryer
Allow your hair to dry. Sit beneath a hooded dryer. Depending on itslength, you should allow your hair to dry between and hourand a halfto two.

Step 4: Comb out and add oil sheen
Comb through your hair. In order to avoid damage or a frizzy look, it’s essential that you make sure your hair is completely dry before starting the styling process. Lightly apply oil in order to give it luster and sheen.

Step 5: Curl
Curl your hair. Take small sections of the hair and wrap them around your marcel iron. Position the iron as if you are attempting to create a ring curl. The bigger your curling iron, the more dramatic your curl will look.

Step 6: Finger comb
Separate the curls. Avoid using a comb to pick your curls out as this will only make them less defined. Use your fingers to gently pull the curls apart until you have reached the amount of volume you desire.

Maybe you’re still not able to achieve this exact look. In this case, it’s best to leave it up to the professionals. All About You Salon & Boutique is one of thePhoenix Arizona hair salons thatspecializes in styling long black hairstyles. Simply call(623) 334-8855 to learn more.

Getting Started
First, it is important to gather together the tools required to create one of the most fun and flirtatious black hairstyles around. You will need a 3/4 to 1 inch barrel curling iron, styling combs, brush, clips, hair holding spray, moisturizing lotion or cream. This is one of those bob hairstyles that need tender loving care along with a precision cut before starting. Start with chemically relaxed hair that is in good condition or hair that is freshly shampooed, conditioned, and straightened with a flat iron or curling iron. Add moisturizing sheen with Shea Butter to nourish and protect hair before continuing.

Step One – Take a comb and separate the hair into easy to work with sections. Separate the crown area on the head. Take a large clip and gather the hair together on the crown and clip it. Proceed to separate the hair on the left side of the head and clip down, separate right side and clip down. Take the entire back section of the hair, comb together and clip down.

Step Two – Remove the clip on the back section of hair. Heat up the curling iron. Divide the hair into two sections. Take the curling iron and curl the sections, one at a time. Remove curls and spray with hair, holding spray. Repeat the same process on the sides and the crown section.

Step Three – Let the fresh curls cool and get ready to style your hair like the flirty style in the picture. Part the hair at an angle on the left or right side. Use your fingers or a styling comb to loosen the curls. Run hands through the curls and let them flow freely.

Step Four – Take your styling comb and start combing and arranging the hair in the sleek style shown in the picture. Remember to take the crown section and flip to the side. You might want to give the bang section an extra curl with the curling iron. Arrange appropriately and spritz with oil based hair holding spray.

Natural Mohawk Hairstyle from Ursula Kershaw

Natural hairstyles are gaining popularity and the natural Mohawk hairstyle is attracting its own share of popularity. It is not only outstanding but also adventurous. It is fun and ready to go with little care required. Charleston SC hair salons are looking to provide the best black hairstyles to suit you. This natural Mohawk hairstyle is ideal for medium hair.

Step-by-Step Guide
Preparation

Shampoo your hair thoroughly and rinse leaving no soap residue
Straighten your hair just a little bit to detangle it

Creating the Natural Mohawk hairstyle

1. Segment your hair into 3 horizontal parts.
These three parts originate from the top of your heal all the way to the neck line. They should leave the mid-section from the crown of your head as the center.

2. Hold up the mid-section
The mid-section is to remain untouched and to avoid mixing the segmentations; it is best that you hold it up and tie it in position.

3. Plait some lines directed towards the hair that is held up from the side sections
With the side segments, plait some lines. These lines originate from the end as they approach the center. Do this on both sides. However, once the line reaches the margin where the tied hair starts, do not complete it. This helps it to blend in with the rest of the hair.

4. Apply some gel over the mid-section
Untie the mid-section hair and apply some hair gel. This will help to bring the hair together thus creating a fuller illusion as well as leaves some fancy curls to your natural hair.

5. Style as desired
Because the mid-section is not plaited, you can direct it in either direction of your choice.

Rather than experiment on your own and turn out with a less attractive outcome. This hairstyle is a creation of Ursula Kershaw from the Studio in North Charleston, SC. You can reach her to book an appointment on (843) 364-4049.

Make sure that the hair is freshly shampooed and conditioned before going further. Use your favorite products or those that are suitable for your hair type. For example, hair products suitable for dry hair or suitable for oily hair.

Certainly, wearing the hair in its natural state is one of those trendy black hairstyles sweeping across the country. First, it is important to make sure that your hair is in reasonably good condition before coloring. Don’t go too drastic. This might result in breakage or other damage to the natural hair. Instead, stay within your color range to avoid damage. Often, some women go too drastic and are very upset at the hair color change. Here is an idea. Use a temporary hair color spray that is available at a local hair and beauty supply shop or ask your hairdresser to apply a temporary color. Remember, to take the time to trim the hair or to get a professional haircut.

Step 1
Gather together the items that are required for the natural hairstyles and hair color creation. Tools required include your normal shampoo, condition, natural hair comb, dryer, hair moisturizer, spray color, towels. Keep all tools close, during the process.

Step 2
Wash and condition the natural hair. Apply a bit of hair moisturizer, if desired. For example, Shea Butter or a spray hair moisturizer. Work the hair moisturizer through the hair. Take a natural comb or brush to apply, if necessary. Style the hair with a natural pick, until satisfied with the look.

Step 3
Achieve this jazzy look with a temporary hair color spray. Follow the directions that are included on the temporary hair color product and apply to the natural hair in the pattern or design on the model in the picture. Use a mirror to spray on the color or ask a friend for assistance in the process.

Of course, coloring natural hair is a choice. However, natural hairstyles require tender loving care and gentle treatment. Visit a hair salon that specializes in black hairstyles for expert care and hair color application. Like this look?

When it comes to looking good, your hair must stand out. This is no different for young girls and kids. Savannah hair salons have made it their business to ensure that your young girl’s hair is looking beautiful and outstanding. While many think that there is little one can do with a kids hair, there are several kid’s hairstyles one can explore. One of the most popular black hairstyles for kids is the natural goddess kiddie braids hairstyle. Though it is simple, which makes it comfortable for kids, it is classy, unique, and beautiful. Whether it is an event you will be attending with her or she is simply looking forward for playtime, this hairstyle should be a consideration.

Step-by-Step Guide
The following step-by-step guide will guide you through creating this hairstyle in the right manner in an effort to bring out the best results. It is ideal for medium as well as long hair. Before getting started, it is important to note that you must purchase one pack of braids to help you achieve the desired look.

Preparation

Thoroughly and gently, wash her hair with a mild shampoo that is gentle for a kid’s skin.
Using warm water, rinse off the shampoo until none is left
Blow-dry her hair to entangle it thus leaving it straight
Segment the braids into a few separate pieces

Creating the natural goddess kiddie braids hairstyle

Divide the hair into two, from top to bottom

Originating from the side, create a cut down to the bottom. However, rather than make a straight cut, make it a zigzag design.

Gather it towards the edges

With the hair divided into two, you are required to comb the two portions on their opposite ends. Ensure that the division remains distinct.

Using the braids, start plaiting a line

Gather one of the braids and ensure that they are even in size. The size should not be small or too big in an effort to ensure that it remains proportional to that of her head. Start the line from the right end where you started making the cut from. Using the braids, plait a line that will start from the right front and go round the edge, plaiting the loose end hair you combed. Ensure that you capture every piece of hair to avoid loose lines. Do the same with the left side of the hair.

Fasten the ends of the lines

Once the lines are complete, it is time to fasten them by neatly stitching them at the back. Ideally, you can use a hair ribbon or bow to hold them together.

It is recommended that you work with a professional stylist when looking to obtain the best results while at the same time ensuring that she is not strained.

Long Romance Curls Hairstyle from Jillian Jenay Mays

Is there anything more appealing than a romantic hairstyle? A head full of long, flowing curls is definitely the way to go when creating a romantic look and in this image Jillian Jenay Mays from J Jenay Hairstyling and Barber Studio in Summerville, SC shows us exactly how its done. The good news, you can easily create this look yourself.

What You Will Need:
Shampoo
Rat Tail Comb
Leave-In Conditioner
Wrapping Lotion
Hooded Dryer
Curling Iron
Sheen
Styling Gel

Step 1: Shampoo and Condition
Start by washing your hair. This is a good time to detangle your hair and make sure that it is bone straight before moving on to styling. Rinse your hair and apply a quality leave in conditioner.

Step 2: Apply Wrapping Lotion
Apply a liberal amount of wrapping lotion to your hair, making sure to not apply so much that the ends drips. Then comb your hair straight back. Make sure that the hair remains as close to the scalp as possible.

Step 3: Dry
Allow your hair to dry. Sit beneath a hooded dryer for one and a half to two hours. How long you remain under the dryer will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. Just make sure you don’t touch or try to style your hair while it is damp.

Step 4: Part and Curl
Before curling, comb through your hair to ensure that there are no tangles and then part your hair just above the peak of either eyebrow. While holding your curling iron in a vertical position, with the handle pointing towards the floor, loosely wrap your hair around the curling iron until it is secure.

Be mindful that the higher you start the curl, the less carefree and romantic your look. Try to start the curl at the base of your neck. It’s also important that you remember that the larger your curling iron, the more loose your curl will be. So if you only have smaller irons, try not curl your hair so tightly.

Step 5: Pick Your Curls Out
Pick your curls apart so as to create more volume. Keep in mind that the more you pick, the curlier your style will look. So be very careful and deliberate about how much you seperate. The goal is to give a smooth and effortless appearance.

Step 6: Smooth Edges and Sheen
Put a quarter size amount of oil sheen in your palm and smooth it over your hair in order to give it a more polished look. You should also use pro styling gel to smooth and style your edges. Make sure to add gel to your part so that it stays in place.

Natural Wash N’ Go Hairstyle from Danielle Warren

December 17, 2015 in Afro Hairstyles, Black Hairstyles, Danielle Warren, Hair Color, Natural Hairstyles Gallery, NUBIAN DESIGNS, Uncategorized



Salon: Nubian Designs
Stylist: Danielle Warren
Model: Danielle
Make Up: Ursula Kershaw

When we think of black hairstyles, one of the first things that comes to mind is natural hair. And Danielle Warren from Nubian Designs in North Charleston, SC.shows us how natural hairstyles can be soft and flattering. Below is a step by step guide to creating this look on your own.

What You Will Need:
Shampoo
Conditioner
Oil
Wide Tooth Comb
Diffuser (optional)
Afro pick (optional)

Step 1: Shampoo
Wash your hair. Natural hair is more manageable when the scalp is clean and free of product build up. Just make sure to use a conditioner with a high ph balance so as to retain as much moisture as possible.

Step 2: Condition and Detangle
Apply a liberal amount of conditioner to your hair. Conditioner helps to soften the hair so that it makes it much easier to comb through a detangle. Take the palm of your hand and then rub hair in circular motions in order to form small curls. The direction in which you rub will depend on your particular curl pattern, so try to experiment to see which way gives the best results.

Step 3: Air Dry
Allow your hair to air dry. Air drying prevents heat damage. However you may choose to use a diffuser to speed the process along.

Alternative Option
Step 3: Two Strand Twist
In some cases, depending on the texture of your hair, your curl definition may be a little lacking. This is when it best to intervene with a little extra manipulation. Simply add a thick oil to your hair after adding the condition. Then divide you hair into eight or nine even sections. (Keep in mind that the more sections you create and the smaller they are, the more curly your hair will be.)

Twist each section into a two-strand twist. Make sure the braids are relatively tight so that they do not easily unravel during the drying process. As you get to the end of the twist, twirl your finger around the braid to secure it. Do this until all of your hair is completely twisted.

Step 4: Air Dry
You can allow your hair to air dry. You may also consider using a diffuser. Whichever method you choose, just make sure not to manipulate your hair until it is completely dry. The dryer it is, the more polished your finished look will be.

Step 5: Separate Your Twists
Create volume by pulling your twists apart. Make sure that every section of your head is evenly covered. However, you should remember that the more you pull each twist apart, the less defined it may become. So don’t tease your hair excessive. Use an afro pick to gently pull from the root of your hair. This will create volume without ruining the curls.

Though natural hair is very versatile, this does not mean you have to do a lot to it to be stylish. Nubian Designs is one of the premium North Charleston hair salons and is not afraid to explore different looks.

Long, Curly “Sexy Goddess” Hairstyle from Kania Mazyck

December 17, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, Kania Mazyck, Long Hairstyles Gallery, Sew Beautiful Hair Studio, Uncategorized

Salon: Sew Beautiful Hair Studio
Stylist: Kania Mazyck
Model: Breya
Make Up: Tierra Nicole

Kania Mazyck, a professional hairstylist from Sew Beautiful Hair Studio in Charleston, SC, shows us just how regalhair extensions can be with long, loose curls. And despite its elegant appearance, this style is not hard to duplicate. Let’s talk about what you need to do to recreate this style at home.

What You Will Need:

Shampoo
Rat Tail Comb
Foam
Moose
Hooded Dryer
Marcel Irons
Light Oil
Claw Comb
Styling Gel
Wrap Strips

Step 1: Shampoo and Condition
Wash you hair. Make sure to detangle and remove all knots. Condition your hair to make sure it is soft and manageable.

Step 2: Apply Moose and Wrap
Apply a liberal amount of foam moose to your hair. How much you apply will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. However, you should make sure to wipe away any excess as too much will leave a white residue when it has completely dried. Create a part at the front of your head and then begin to wrap your hair around your head, counter clockwise. Make sure that your hair is molded as close to the scalp as possible.After you are sure that your hair is secure, add a little extra security by wrapping a wrap strip tightly around your head. You can hold the strip in place by tucking the end of it underneath, making sure not to interfere with how smooth the hair is.

Step 3: Dry
Sit beneath a hooded dry for an hour and a half to two hours. Try to avoid hitting your head against the hood or touching it until you know that the hair is dry. Working with damp hair will only cause the hair to crinkle and your finished look won’t be as polished.

Step 4: Curl
Curl your hair in vertical patterns. Make sure you use the largest marcel iron you have. The larger your iron, the more loose the curl. This is also means that you will have more volume. Start at the base of your neck and wrap your hair around the marcel iron, making sure its not too tight. The goal is to “bump” the hair, not form tights curls.

Step 5: Create A Part and Sheen
Create part at the front of your head and slick down the edges with pro styling gel. Take a quarter size amount of oil in your hair and rub it through the hair. Make sure not too add to much as this will only weigt the hair down and take away from your volume.

Step 6: Style
Use you claw comb to create your own designs. While creating different patterns, make sure you don’t comb too roughly over your curls. Simply use them as a guide.

This is only one of many creative things you can do with your long hair. However, if you are not as experienced with working with this length, it never hurts to consult professionals. If you enjoy the Kania Mazyck from Sew Beautiful Hair Studio, like wearing long hairstyles or simply would like to get more ideas for you black hairstyles, then you should contact this Kania at (843) 817-5696.

Preparation

Thoroughly wash your hair with a mild shampoo
Rinse your hair to ensure no shampoo residue is left
Blow-dry your hair leaving it straight and silky

Creating the natural sapphire blowout

At the crown of your head, part a section of your hair

This hairstyle does not originate from the center of your head. Part section of your hair at the crown as you ensure it takes a more side cut. You can choose which side works best for you. Ensure that the segmented hair is not to thin or too thick. You need just enough to blend it in with the extension leaving in a flawless feel.

Tie it together

Tie the segmented hair together and ensure you hold it up so that it does not mix with the rest of the hair.

Plait some lines with the rest of the hair

Plait some neat lines with the hair you did not hold up. Do not make them too big so that they can last longer. This will provide the ideal sections to attach the extensions.

Attach the extensions

It is time to attach the extensions so as to leave the desired effect. At the bottom half of your head, attach the black colored extension. At the top half, attach the blue sapphire extension. Being at the top ensures the color stands out.

Drop the held up hair at the crown

Once you have attached the extensions, you can let down the hair at the crown. Provide a side cut so that it does not fall at the center. The side cut provides a more stylish and fancy appearance. Ensure that the hair falls on either side. One side should be able to fall and cover part of your face.

Comb down the hair. Tong it depending on your preference and oil it to give that shine. The length allows you to let it down or style it and hold it up.

It is however recommended that you seek professional services to help obtain the best results. This hairstyle is a creation of Paulette Edwards. You can find this stylist in Beaufort SC. The best option will be for you to contact her and book and appointment through Ultimate Creations Phone number (843) 522-2939.

Long Phunky Pompadour Hairstyle from Yoshie Brown

December 15, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Damonnis Hair Studio, Long Hairstyles Gallery, Uncategorized, Updo's Hairstyle Gallery, Yoshie Brown

Salon: Damonni’s Hair Studio
Stylist: Yoshie Brown
Model: Jassel
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

There is nothing more elegant or refined than a pompadour hairstyle. Though we have become accustomed to seeing this particular design on women with short hair, it can also work for long hairstyles as well. And if you don’t have long hair, you can always add a few hair extensions.Damonni’s Hair Studio in Wilmington, NC shows us just how creative one can get with black hairstyles by creating a beautiful, long mane pompadour. You can easily recreate this look on your own.

What You Will Need:
Shampoo
Setting Lotion
Rat tail Comb
Towel
Hair Dryer
Holding Spray
Pro Gel
Bobby pins
Pomade

Step 1: Shampoo
Shampoo your hair. Shampooing will give you an opportunity to detangle your hair. You may even want to comb through your hair as you lather because your pompadour will need to be a straight as possible. And hair is more manageable when it is wet.

Step 2: Apply Setting Lotion
Massage a liberal amount of setting lotion through your hair. This will help your hair to bond together as it dries. It will also help it to hold the shape you mold it into. Lightly towel dry your ends so as to remove excess lotion.

Step 3: Mold Your Hair
Comb your hair straight back. Make sure that the hair above your shoulders is molded as close to your scalp as possible. This is especially true when it comes to the hair around your ears. Use gel to slick down your edges.

Step 4: Allow The Hair To Dry
Depending on the length of your hair, sit beneath a hooded dryer between one and a half to two hours. It’s essential that every section of your hair is completely dry as it will need time to develop a firm hold. You should also avoid touching your hair until you are sure that it is completely dry.

Step 5: Tease and Spray
Take your dry comb and comb out a large section of hair towards the front of your head. Ideally, you should make sure that this section is evenly proportioned. Tease the back of the section in order create as much volume as possible. Once you have achieved your desired height, spray it with holding spray.

Step 6: Comb and Smooth
Comb your hair over the section that has been teased so that it looks like one, smooth hump. Once this section looks smooth, secure it with a couple of large bobby pins.

Step 7: Add Shine and Extra Hold
Use pomade to add a sheen to your hair. Just make sure that you don’t use too much as this may weigh down your hair and it cause it to go flat. You may also choose to spray a little more holding spray for extra hold.

As you can see, this is a hairstyle that can be worn for most any special occasion. If you are interested in this hairstyle and would like to get a few more elegant ideas from the pros, then contactDamonni’s Hair Studio in Wilmington, NC. They can be reached at(910) 619-1692.

Rainbow Bright Quick Weave Hairstyle from Tiffany Hudson

December 11, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Crystal Clear Salon & Spa, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, Hair Color, Tiffany Hudson

Salon: Crystal Clear Salon & Spa
Stylist: Tiffany Hudson
Model: Alyssa
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

A quick weave is a fast solution to any bad hair day.
This rainbow bright quick wave gives you a show stopping rooster haircut without cutting your hair. The design uses colored extensions. You can get color in your hair without damaging it with dye.

This style was created by Tiffany Hudson from Crystal Clear Salon & Spa in Durham, NC. Phone number (910) 491-8374

How To Do A Rainbow Bright Quick Weave
1. The first step is to buy your extensions. Most colored hair come in synthetic extensions. They are less expensive than Virgin or Remy hair. Pick out four colors. The best effect is one that has two bright colors, one medium color like read, and one dark color such as burgundy.

2. Set Your Hair.

For this style, if you have short hair, you can slick your hair down on each side. You can apply quick weave, to achieve the side and back of this style, but you can also use your real hair. If you have long hair, a low tight ponytail is the best option. Apply setting solution. Wait for it to dry.

3. Rectangle Part

For your rooster haircut, you will need a rectangle part at the top of your head. You do this by parting it on both sides and across the back. Use a headband or big rubber band to keep the hair out of the way. The rest of your hair is in a U-shape and will be the first place you apply weave if you are not going to use your real hair.

4. Arrange your hair colors how you want them to appear on the top of your head.

5. Prepare your extensions by adding glue to weft. That is the track part of your extensions. You can soften the glue and make it sticky to the touch by blow drying it.

6. Place weft onto the hair. Press the weft about 2 to 3 centimeters from your scalp.Be careful and not attach it to the scalp. Glue on scalp can cause hair loss and inhibit future hair growth.

7. You can place the black hair on the U-shape part. Place the hair on the sides by the hairline at least a half an inch from your hairline. Your rooster rainbow will cover up this.

8. Continue to glue and apply the hair. Around the rectangle part.

9. Place the colored hair at the top of your head. Make sure it is facing forward and falls on your forehead.

10. Once all the hair is applied, cut the hair. Cut the extensions on the sides and back until they are short enough to cut with clippers. Do a line up.

11. Cut the extensions in the front and curl them to form your shape.

If you want a Durham hair salon to do this for you, call Tiffany Hudson and visit one of the best black hair salons in Durham, NC.

Natural Mohawk with Plumb Ombre Color from Kenya Young

December 8, 2015 in Black Hairstyles, Kenya Young, Mohawk Hairstyles Gallery, Ombre Hairstyles Gallery, Young Sassy Unique Hair Salon

Salon: Young Sassy & Unique
Stylist: Kenya Young
Model: Alicia
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

 

The Mohawk has become a well-known trend among all hair types. No matter what culture, mostly everyone is familiar with this popular do. And Kenya Young from Young, Sassy and Unique Hair Salon in Durham, NC shows us just how versatile a Mohawk can be. In this image, Kenya adds an ombre hair color to the mohawk and makes it both earthy and edgy. Let’s find out how you can create this look on your own.

What You Will Need:
Shampoo
Conditioner
Diffuser (optional)
Light Oil
Rat tail comb
Butterfly Clamps
Bobby pins
Afro Pick

Step 1: Shampoo
Wash your hair. Whenever you braid you hair, it’s best to start with a clean scalp. This is because braids last for a considerable length of time and particles can accumulate in the hair. Starting with clean hair will enable you to go longer between washes.

Step 2: Condition and Detangle
Condition your hair and then rinse with cool water.Natural hair can be somewhat dry at times which means it needs a lot of moisture. That’s why it is best to condition your hair before you braid it. Not only does conditioning make the hair more soft and manageable, but it also helps to ensure that your ends don’t get damaged as you twist and pull.Use your rat tail comb to detangle your hair before you rinse away the conditioner.

Step 3: Dry
Allow your hair to dry before you braid. This makes it easier for you to grab hold of your strands without them being too slippery. If you are in a crunch for time, you may also consider using a diffuser. It gets the hair dry without taking away a lot of your moisture or causing heat damage.

Step 4: Oil Your Scalp
Add light oil to your scalp. Not only is oil healthy for the scalp, but it will also give your hair a sheen. And your finished look will look more polished.

Step 5: Part Your Hair
On each side of your head, divide your hair into four even parts and use butterfly clamps to secure each section. Each part should start from your hair line and extend toward the crown of your head. Do not part along the front of your head or the back. The further you part, the less hair you will have sticking out in the center of your mohawk, so be sure to leave enough hair to fluff out in the middle.

Step 6: Braid
Braid your sections. Make sure you smooth at the sides as you braid and make sure that there are no stray hairs hanging out. Also, make sure that you do not braid too tightly as this could damage your follicles. Your braids should be secure but comfortable. At the end of each braid, secure it with a bobby pin.

Step 6: Pick and Fluff
Use an afro pick to fluff out the middle. The more you fluff and pick, the more volume you will achieve. Use your fingers to pick apart chunky sections if necessary.

There are many natural hairstyles that can be done on you own and as you can see the mohawk is one of them. However, it’s always nice to get a professional touch to your black hairstyles every now and then. If you’re interested in a more polished and detailed look, then you should consider contacting the Young, Sassy and Unique Hair Salon in Durham, NC at (910) 444-9089.

Segment your hair leaving a section at the front part. By segmenting your hair, you will be able to leave the front part that is going to combine with the rest of the weave and extension so it gives that sleek look.

2. Plait a few lines leaving the front section of hair
The back section is to be plaited. Plait a few lines directed either to the back or in a circular direction. This will provide you with a guide on where you will stitch your weave thus enabling you secure your weave in position.

Make Up: Deirdre Clay

Women looking for a natural hairstyle and do not want to leave their hair exposed, should consider this natural locus updo. It is gaining popularity and black women are readily adopting dreadlocks into their culture and making them look even better with the different styling capabilities. It is ideal for a professional look as well as a fun and outgoing look. In this, it will suit every occasion. Tenene, the creator of this hairdo delivers on providing an adventurous edge that many black women are embracing. It is fun, chic, and adventurous to bring out the best features in you.

Step-by-step Guide
The following is a step-by-step guide on how to create the natural locus updo to meet your desired look. It is ideal for persons with dreadlocks of medium to long length. Before you can do anything, it is best that you first prepare your locks.

Preparation

Wash your dreadlocks by working the soap into your locks and squeezing it out gently.
Rinse off the soap gradually until there is no residue left
Dry it thoroughly

N/B: It is easier and faster to lock in dreadlocks when your hair is clean as opposed to when it is dirty and oily.

Creating the natural locus updo hairstyle

Gather the dreadlocks at the center of your head together

Segment the dreadlocks ensuring that you gather the dreadlocks at the center of your head together. Position them at the center and ensure that you do not pull them tightly to prevent pain and discomfort.

Tie them together

Tie the locks together to ensure there is firm grasp and rather than allow the long ends fall off, fold them into two and complete the tie. This should leave you with a crown-like shape on your head.

Pull together the side dreadlocks and twist them around the tied dreadlocks leaving out one dreadlock at the back and another at the front

Gather the dreadlocks you left on the side of your head and also pull them in the same direction as the previous locks. Rather than tie them, twist them around the tied locks in a circular motion. At their end tack them into the other dreadlocks and fasten them into position. You may decide to have them stitched in position or use hairpins to fix them into position.

Take the front dreadlock and twist it loosely towards your forehead

That in position, go back to the dreadlock you left at the front. Since it is long, you will twist it loosely about twice to leave two loops on your forehead. Fasten it with a decorative clip to hold it in position.

Leave the dreadlock at the back hanging lose

The steps to creating the ideal natural locus updo can be complicated if you do not have the expertise. Rather than do it yourself, contact an expert from Mobile AL hair salons for the hairstyle to bring out the desired look at its best. This outstanding and gorgeous black hairstyle is a creation of Tanene Jackson from Locs of Soul in Mobile, AL.

What You’ll Need:

Step 2: Divide the hair off into sections. The bigger you make your sections, the more volume you’re have.You can start by either parting the hair down the middle or with a row of dreads that fall to either side of your head. Placerubber bands on the ends so as to hold your sections in place.

Step 3: Twist your locks. If your hair is very thick it may be faster if you place a comb at the ends of your hair and then twist. As you twist, add your dread wax. This will help to make sure your locs are tightly formed. The more you twist your hair, the tighter your locks will be.

Step 4: Allow your hair to dry and add gel. Allow your hair to dry, either by air or by dryer. Then dampen the hair and add a small tightening Gel to the dreads. This gives the curl more hold.

Step 5: Wrap each of your locs around your rollers at an angle, as if to create a ring curl. And continue until each of your dreads are secure around their rollers. It’s important to note that the smaller your rollers, the tighter the curl.

Step 6: Dry Your Hair. Whatever method you use, make sure to get it as dry as possible as your curls will only hold if your hair is not damp.

Step 7: Unwrap the curls and tease out your hair.

As you can see, changing up your look does not have to be complicated. This is especially true when it comes to creating and styling locs.

Salon: Lady T’s Lovely Loc’s

Dreadlocks are one of the most popular, natural black hairstyles today. However, not every lock looks the same. In fact, all it takes is a little manipulation and an eye for detail and you can createwhatever style you’d like.In this imageTonisha Kenty from Lady T’s Lovely Locs in Crestview, FL demonstrates how you can give dreadlocks a more soft and wavy appearance. Let’s take a moment to discuss how you can go about recreating this style.

What You’ll Need:
Dread Wax
Residue Free Shampoo
Tightening gel
Rollers
Hooded Dryer

Step 1: Shampoo your hair. Regular shampoos have a tendency to make your hair resistant to knotting and tangling. This is because many contain some form of conditioner. So to avoid dread rot, make sure you pay attention to the ingredients before shampooing.It’s best to wash your hair with a shampoo that is residue free.

Step 2: Section your hair off into individual sections. By diving your hair into smaller parts, you can determine what size and shape you want as well as where you would like the placement of each individual dread. Use your rubber bands in order to hold your sections in place until you’re prepared to dread.

Step 3: Twist the hair. Use your fingers to twist each section clockwise. It’s important to remember that the more you twist the hair, the tighter the dreads will become. Add wax as you twist.

Step 4: Dampen your hair. After your locks have formed, dampen your hair and then apply a small amount of gel to your dreads. This will help to ensure that your curl has enough hold and will help to keep your locs well-formed.

Step 5: Create a pony tail and roll your ends. Use a rubber band to put your hair in a ponytail. Then wrap your locks around your roller. The closer your rollers get to your scalp, the more tight your curls will be. So that loose, wavy look, make sure that your rollers remain loose. Also, the bigger your rollers, the looser the curl.

Step 6: Allow your hair to dry. Give your hair time to dry by sitting underneath a hooded dryer. You may also choose to allow the hair to air dry, though this does take more time and patience.

Step 7: Undo rollers and manipulate hair. Once dry, take down your rollers and position your locks in the way that your prefer most.

Whether you are someone who is on a tight budget or are simply interested in changing things up a bit, the wavy deadlock look can add a new depth and dimension to your natural style collection. It’s easy to do and doesn’t take up too much of your time. If you enjoyed this look and are interested in knowing more about what you can have done with your locs, then you should contact professionals who work in Crestview, FL hair salons.

Though dreadlocks were worn in ancient culture, they are still relevant in many parts of the world today. This is especially true when it comes to black hairstyles. Locs are one of the most eye catching natural looks to date. And they can be styled and accessorized in various ways. In this image,Tonisha Kenty from Lady T’s Lovely Locs in Crestview, FL shows us just how unique your locks can be if you add a few beads to them.

What You’ll Need:
Dread WaxResidue Free ShampooRubber bands
Rat Tail Comb
Hooded Dryer (optional)

Step 1: Shampoo your hair. It’s important that your hair is extremely clean and free of residue before attempting to lock it. The more clean it is, the more manageable and shiny your locks will be. Many shampoos leave chemicals behind which causes them to become dull or greasy. So try washing your hair with residue free shampoo so as to not compromise your look. You may sit beneath a hooded dryer or allow it to air dry.

Step 2: Divide your hair into sections. Sectioning off your hair is one of the most important parts of dreading because this will determine how big or small each of your locks will be. For the smaller locks, section your hair into 1 inch by 1 inch parts. Use rubber bands to hold the ends so as to keep your sections separate until it’s time to twist them.

Step 3: Twist your hair. After you’ve divided your hair into smaller sections,twist each of these sections clockwise. You may also opt to use a comb to snag the ends of your hair and then twist. Whatever method you use, make sure to work dread wax into each section as you twist. This will help to hold the dread in place.

Step 4: Add your beads. Choose the bead that fits the most securely around your lock. The goal is to make sure that it is tight enough to remain on the lock, but not so tight that it cannot be removed. Apply the bead to your loc by sliding it on to the end of your hair. Then make sure the beads are completely secure before moving on to the next loc.

Step 5: Style Your Hair. Gather the hair from the hairline at your forehead to that above your ears and then pin it back. Depending on what look you want, you may choose to pin it straight back, or more or less to one side of your head. If you would like to bring attention to the back of your hair, then pull it to the front and drape it over your shoulders.

As you can see, making sure you achieve the perfect loc takes time and dedication. However, if you are willing to put in the work, you can have the perfect dreadlocks as well as the accessories to go along with them. If you need a little help, are interested in finding a professional to do this look for you and would like to have it done at one of the premiere Crestview FL hair salons, then you should consider contacting Tonisha Kenty from Lady T’s Lovely Loc at(850) 543-8932.

Natural Afrocentric Hairstyle from Tonisha Kenty

October 19, 2015 in Afro Hairstyles, Black Hairstyles, Lady T's Lovely Locs, Natural Hairstyles Gallery, Tonisha Kenty, Uncategorized

Salon: Lady T’s Lovely Loc’s
Stylist: Tonisha Kenty

Are you interested in taking your natural hairstyles to the next level? Well, why not try out one of the most popular and classic black hairstyles–the afro. In this image, Tonisha Kenty from Lady T’s Lovely Locs in Crestview, FL demonstrates how to create a perfect natural hair blowout! By using your blow dryer and comb attachment, you can stretch your coils out and show off all of your length. You can wear it as is, or even style it by using a colorful accessory.

What You’ll Need
Heat protectant
Wide-tooth comb
Blow dryer that has comb attachment
Butterfly clipsLarge Bow (Or preferred accessory)
Styling Gel

Step 1: Shampoo and Condition
One of the most important steps in the blowout process is the preparation of your hair. Ideally, your blowout should be done on hair that is freshly washed, conditioned,

Step 2: Detangle
There is nothing more frustrating or potentially damaging than trying to dry your hair while working through knots and tangles. So take the time to comb through your hair with your wide-tooth comb in order to ensure that the blow drying process will take less time. Not only will this save you the frustration, but it will also cut down on the amount of heat your hair is exposed to. A good rule of thumb is, the less time your hair is exposed to heat, the better.

Step 3: Apply Heat Protectant
Whenever your hair is exposed to a lot of heat it will tend to weaken and sometimes the proteins will be damaged. Also, the natural oils in your hair can change and all of the internal moisture in your strands can dry up. So the best way to prevent heat damage is to apply a good protectant. Apply it from root to tips; pay extra attention to your ends because this is the most fragile part of your hair. The heat protectant will create a film around your hair and make it more resistant to damage.

Step 4: Divide Your Hair Into Sections
In order to make this process quicker and ensure that every section of your head receives the same amount of stretching, then its best to break it down into four manageable chunks. If your hair is longer and thicker, then you may want to divide it into more sections. Pin each section up with your butterfly clip.

Step 5: Dry Each Section
Using medium heat, pass the blow dryer (with the comb attached) through your hair just as you would with a wide-tooth comb. Make sure you do this gently and from the root to the tip. Continue until each section is completely dry and evenly stretched.

Step 6: Smooth A Section Of Your Hair And Your Accessory
Depending on which side of your hair you would like to place your accessory, take a little of your styling gel and smooth it over the area you would like to pin up. After the area is smoothed, then hold it back and pin your bow or accessory to it.

It’s important to realize that when it comes to the blowouts, everyone’s technique is a little different. And that’s because the length of the hair, the texture and the amount of shrinkage experienced can change from person to person. But the above tutorial should work for most hair types. If you’re interested in having the style done by black hair salons that are equipped with experts in natural hair, then visit Lady T’s Lovely Locs.
