Hola! Welcome to Monday and a short work week! I am gearing up for the holiday but I must take time out to share today’s muse—Melissa De Sousa. She is most recently known as the feisty Shelby in new movie ‘The Best Man Holiday’ (a must-see). However she is not new to the big screen, Melissa started acting back in 1998 and her career continues to soar. Take a peek at the pics and notice the transition of her curlz to blond wavy tresses. I love her natural hair best but she is gorgeous nonetheless. Which look is your fave? Do tell.
Rocking her natural curlz circa 1995.

Hola peeps! Today’s muse—DJ Rashida has spun hip hop, house, soul, pop, rock and more all over the world! The talented international dj got her start at the young age of 18 when she bought her first turntables. Since then she has worked with the likes of Kanye West, The Roots, John Legend and her biggest break collaboration of all…Prince. Wow what a resume!

Let’s talk about that coif! The fact that she plays with color, updos and accessories is great. She obviously loves her curlz and it is great to see a celeb celebrate their natural texture while in the spotlight. Kudos to you DJ Rashida! What do you think of today’s muse? Do tell.
Hola peeps! Did you chicas watch Black Girls Rock last night? Well if you didn’t you missed out! It was a spectacular show highlighting girls and women for the positive things they are doing in their communities. Today’s muse—Mara Brock Akil was one of the women awarded. You may have seen some of her television work as she was the creator and executive producers of Girlfriends, The Game and most recently Being MaryJane. She also wrote the successful film—Sparkle (starred Whitney Houston).

Here is the fab Mara with our favorite (well mine at least) Girlfriends. I wish she would create a movie or one last episode for old times sake. They all look great!
Aside from her past/current accomplishments I foresee many more in the near future for Mara. She is truly a black girl who rocks! Don’t you agree?
Hola peeps! I hope that you had a great weekend! Today’s muse—Africa Miranda deems herself the “hairnista” and once you see the pics you will understand why. She grew up in Montgomery, AL but has Cape Verdean roots. The beauty is a singer, print/commercial model and an actress. You may have seen her recently on Bravo TV’s new reality show, The New Atlanta. That is actually where I first noticed her although now I am seeing her pop up all over the place from hair product ads in magazines (Crème of Nature, ORS to name a few) and food commercials. Take a peek and share your thoughts.
I love this quote:
“Life is best lived with a fabulous head of hair”—Africa Miranda
Keep up with her here and she has a blog too! Enjoy!
Hola! I hope that you had a fab weekend! Today’s muse is the über talented London-bred singer Lianne La Havas. Her sound is fresh, funky and soulful. Music greats like Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jill Scott and more are huge fans of hers. Let’s not forget her gorgeous curly hair…love! Check out more below.
Check out this interview where she talks about her hair regimen and the products that she uses to maintain her coily coif. What do you think of her hair?
Hola peeps! Today’s muse is the gorgeous Zimbabwean-American actress and playwright Danai Gurira. She is best known for her role as Michonne on the hit tv show The Walking Dead. It’s such a shame their cast didn’t win an Emmy award last night; however with her talents I know that she definitely has one coming in the near future. I admire the fact that she didn’t let Hollywood mold her into a cookie-cutter actress. She proudly rocks a TWA, shows her smooth chocolate skin and wows us with a big bright smile—love! Keep doing your thing Danai!

Hola peeps! I hope that you had a great weekend! Today’s muse is the gorgeous, newly crowned Miss Dominican Republic 2013—Yaritza Reyes. She won on August 2nd and will represent her country to compete for the title of Miss Universe on November 9th in Moscow. Reyes isn’t new to the being in front of the camera as she is also an actress and model. I love that she is a follow curly chica and didn’t get pressured into having pageant hair. *trust me I know…I was a pageant girl…I blame my mom* She is a perfect SNC muse! Congrats and good luck!
