Despite the fact that we were just at the beach this past weekend (we know…but you were there with us in spirit), we realize that many of you are currently walking around with potatoes in y our pockets and three layers of silk long johns. It’s cold and that midwest and east coast snow just won’t let up even though spring officially starts in 10 days. Since we have to deal with mother nature until she’s through with us, the best thing we can do is make the best of the situation. Over here we’re wearing Havaianas and tank tops but that’s not stopping us from thinking of ways to help our sisters keep their hair on fleek and ears warm. Look no further than the winter scarf head wrap (or The Sweater Head Wrap if you want to take it up a notch). READ MORE

Let’s take it back to the 90’s 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.
