Events—Motions & Essence Fearless Style Lounge


Hola peeps!  Last Wednesday I attended the Fearless Style Lounge which was sponsored by Essence Magazine and Motions hair care.  The event was hosted by Pamela Edwards-Christiani, Essence Beauty and Style Director and Ursula Stephen, Motions Celebrity Stylist (ahem think of RiRi’s pixie cut–she did that).  It was the perfect way to end a very hectic NYFW!  I had great time and left with some great new hairstyle ideas to try.  Take a peek at the pics…enjoy!

Celebrity hairstylist and Global Ambassador for Motions South Africa Ursula Stephen doing a fierce braided updo on a client.
Bun knots (or so I call it)–this is another fun style created by Ursula.
This client’s braids were transformed into a big twisted bun.
My friend Sade (@afrochicas) curls were elevated with side twists and picked out to add volume.

Thoughts on these looks?  Are you planning on trying any of these styles?  Do tell!

WIDW—Janelle Monae for Essence May 2013


Hola peeps! I took a little break for Easter and it feels like forever since I did a complete post but now I am back!  Today I’m diggin how beautiful singer Janelle Monae is on the cover of Essence magazine.  Her skin is simply flawless, the makeup is just right and of course her signature pompadour is on point.  I think this look is classic and it fits her style that she wears so well.  What do you think?  Are you digging it or would you like to see her change it up a bit?  Do tell.
