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

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

If you’ve been keeping up with us for the last couple of weeks, you may have thought we’d be winding down our Curls In Color series with one last article and then we’d be out by now. Actually, we’re just getting started. Now comes the best part–the transformations. Transformations that we hope will encourage and inspire you to step outside the box and color your natural hair. A diverse group of women, all with different natural hair textures, were up for the challenge and decided to allow us to give them natural hair makeovers. In collaboration with our editorial hairstylist Amena BelledeSoleil, and owner of Hair Polish Natural Hair Studio in Los Angeles, we picked the final hair colors based on what we felt would fit each woman’s personality and lifestyle best. Equipped with tubes of rich and beautiful Pravana hair color, beautiful and healthy heads of colored natural hair were made. In no particular order, this is our first Curls In Color story. READ MORE

You want to sleep but your brain has other plans. Chewing on grape flavored melatonin gummies may the the thing you body needs to get your sleep clock back on schedule.

The holiday weekend is officially over. You’ve overdosed on BBQ and little sleep. This morning and the rest of the week, things my not be looking so good for our under eye real estate. Or maybe by the time you’re reading this it’s the middle of the week, no holiday in sight, and you’re barely making it through a crazy hectic week/month/fill in the blank with life’s sleep stealing moments. Either way, you’ve found yourself here because of bags under your eyes. You woke up this morning like this (and absolutely nothing like that song talks about) and are now frantically searching the innanets for “bags under your eyes home remedies” and “bags under your eyes cream.” Slow down and breathe. We feel you. READ MORE
