Enjolie came in to the hair studio with hopes of sunset inspired magentas and purples but left with a vibrant copper coral color melt that she loved just the same. This color works so well on her because it highlights her skin tone and in some ways, even makes her beautiful eyes even more noticeable. Her coral tips are so delicately subtle that until her hair is in a high pony or she throws her curls over her shoulders, you almost miss that they are there. READ MORE

In September of 2006, CBS News published an article lamenting the number of daily ad images that inundated us and an accompanying picture of a man with an index card affixed to his forehead reading “your ad here.” Though this photo was intended to suggest that literally every available space could and eventually would be an appropriate space for advertisers to display its messages, the image was intended as hyperbole.

A “professional” blue. That was the challenge. Blue natural hair can be beautiful, but it’s not for the faint at heart and for those of us who walk the line of adventurous on the weekend and corporate during the week, it can be tricky to pull of. Many of us split our hair personalities during the week and can only do the fun stuff we want on the weekend (or on Tuesday when the club is going up…but we digress). We wanted to find a solution to that problem for the beautiful kinky curls Frankie rocks so effortlessly and we think we did just that with this deep aqua marine blue. READ MORE

When you actually need a really good blush from the drugstore, it can be harder to find than you’d imagine. There are a plethora of lipstick and foundation options for all skin tones and types to choose from, but a really good blush that’s worth the purchase? We’ll that’s a bit more of a challenge. Here’s what looks great on all skin tones and types and makes us go back for repeat purchases: READ MORE

It’s Dove’s first oil-based line specifically targeting naturally curly and coarse hair and promises to be their most nourishing range yet, infused with buriti oil and Omega 9.

We’ll go right ahead and state the obvious two things you’re thinking: One, Bianca looks beautiful in her lime green natural hair. And two, not many people can pull of green hair and even fewer of those “not many people” can pull of neon green hair. We’re right there with you. We agree that everything is not for everyone and that includes both spandex and hair color. But, and this but applies to everyone, we like to experiment with color and enjoy encouraging other women to be brave enough to do the same by trying a color that they think they can’t pull off. You may just surprise yourself at how good you look in bright, neon curls and how becoming it is on you. READ MORE

In most cases, it’s Vic that’s doing the styling. Being a celebrity wardrobe stylist and costume designer, her curly natural hair plays a role just as important as the purse she carries and the outfits that she wears. Everything has to come together precisely. She was a wonderful treat for this makeover series. She presented us with the biggest challenge because she was a bit anxious coming in. “I’m the worst person for surprises,” she told us. “I hate surprises. No, really I hate them.” In for surprise she was because like all of the other ladies before her, she had no idea what hair color she was getting. It could have been swamp green for all she knew. But what we knew was that her hair color needed to say “banging.” It needed to speak volumes even when she was not saying a word. READ MORE

If you’ve ever tried on Ruby Woo while perusing reds at a MAC counter, then you more than likely have been offered up her sister Lady Danger for testing as well. Lots of women (including ourselves) are die hards for ole Ruby but there is something about Lady Danger that most can’t deny makes her a great sister lipstick–just opposite and similar enough–one is a little more classic, sexy and retro and the other, a little more vibrant, kittenish and eclectic. A vivid bright coral red that wears like the sun on your lips, it’s hard not to wear this color on repeat. READ MORE
