Let’s take it back to the 90s when we were feeling ourselves (and for some of us) just beginning to delve deeper into melding with our Blackness or Afrocentric-ness thanks to the musical vibes and lyrical call to education from beautiful ones like Erykah Badu and Angie Stone. Let’s take it back even further to the times when we stood tall in all of our knee-deep-in-the-middle-of-puberty glory, studying our faces and watching ourselves through the steamy condensation of the bathroom mirror while a fluffy white towel graced our heads and we celebrated about how beautiful we were and how royal we looked with our towel crowns.

There is something inherently French/Catherine Denevue-ish about a coif donned into a snug french roll. We are big fans of the French and many of the beautiful things that come out of the country that made Zazie go (a little new wave cray) on the Paris metro and Jean Seberg take our breath away (and it had nothing to do with all of those asthma-inducing cigarettes). It’s simply because anything smothered between a buttery, flakey croissant, starts with Yves and used to end with Saint Laurent, curtain calls with the most horrifically beautiful crash scene off of a cliff or comes from Caudalie, we just adore. Oui also love a beautiful french roll. It’s such a chic and classic hairstyle that you can have fun with. READ MORE

in two days, the big gift giving day will be here. and if you are anything like us, your hair ‘do for the day is still up in the air. personally, if i could have my way, i’d be in a beanie all day, but then it wouldn’t match my outfit and really, there’s not much fun in that. READ MORE

it’d be kind of redundant at this point to say “the holiday’s are upon us.” actually we’re knee deep into the season. in less than a week, santa clause will be jumping down chimneys and dropping gifts for the good girls and boys and lumps of coal for the bad ones. and us, we’ll we’ll be stuffing our faces with food that have calories that don’t count on holidays. unlimited, calorie-free dressing for the win!

A crochet pony is majorly creative and it's so simple. A different take on a protective style if there ever was one all you need is a few hours and a great moisturizing oil. This is 90s hair revamped.
It's not that we've never seen this natural hair style before, but it's that Summer's transformation is so eye-catching. She put a fun spin on how to twist out curly hair (read: twist your hair then paint your lips).
Though a fluffy bantu knot out is love, we are digging the defined spirals in this hair style. With a few lightweight moisturizers, and no heat getting a firm hold on bantu curls is quite simple.

the beauty about beauty is that it’s subjective. we all crave and admire from different perspectives. it’s something that many of us take for granted very often when it comes to hair. many of us spend hours trying to craft the perfect style every time and allowing room for imperfections seems ludicrous. but it’s in the imperfections that hair is perfect. take twist out curls for example, when done meticulously, you can have carbon copy curls that evoke envy for days, but a perfectly imperfect twist out is perfect within its own right.
