Karline's Salon - The beYOUtiful Life

In this edition of The beYOUtiful Life, let us recap some of the hair moments at the 2019 Grammy Awards.  From perfect ponytails, banging bangs, and hair accessories galore, music industry’s biggest night did not disappoint with a diversity of hairstyles and hair fashions.

Camila Cabello prompts a “yes” to the eternal question, “Should I get bangs?” It’s also nice to see she hasn’t given up on ponytails entirely following Headache-Gate.

Hat hair has a bad rep, but we have a feeling Janelle Monae’s safety-pin- crown and hat-frame contraption will shift the narrative.

Enough said.

This excerpt was originally published at BRIT + CO:

Cardi B… turned heads on the red carpet in a show-stopping gown from Thierry Mulger’s Fall-Winter 1995 couture collection. And what hairstyle could possibly complement the black and pink Venus sheath dress and embellished bodysuit? A pearl-encrusted beehive updo, of course.

 

“The inspiration behind Cardi B’s red carpet look is a ’90s influenced pearl updo to play up her couture ensemble,” says celebrity stylist Tokyo Stylez, on behalf of Suave Professionals. (Photo via Kevin Mazur/ Getty)

Did we mention Cardi B.? Well, we’ll say it again, the top knot wrapped in pearls was everything, as recognized in the following excerpt from Stylecaster.

…beyond the fashion, we couldn’t help but notice the details that demanded our attention too. More often than not, red carpet events rarely deliver in this department, but tonight, A-listers spared no expense making sure that their entire look was accented to perfection. Ahead, the accessory moments worthy of a double-take.

KS Cares – Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County

Posted on by webmaster in Events, Seasons 2 Comments

In this very special holiday post, we’d like to tell you about Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, a funding resource for programs and services that improve the lives of children and their families. Moreover, we’d like to ask you to join us in making the season a little brighter for children served by the organization’s home visiting programs.

Children’s Services Council focuses the majority of its funding on prevention and early intervention services for all Palm Beach County children so they grow up healthy, safe, and strong. More than 89% of Children’s Services Council’s budget goes directly into programs*, which include:

  • WHIN Nurses (Women’s Health Initiative Nurses), which addresses the health and wellness needs of African American women who are either pregnant or have a baby. The program provides nurse home-visiting services in the county’s high-risk zip codes.
  • Nurse Family Partnership, which addresses the health and well-being of low-income first-time parents and their children. The program provides volunteer registered nurses for pregnant women and children up to two years of age.
  • Healthy Beginnings Nurses, which provides a wide range of pre and post-natal and intervention services for pregnant women and mothers of infants in a family’s home.

*Source: Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County 

The impact of these programs is impressive. Here is one of many reasons why they are so important:

On Sunday, December 16, 2018, Karline’s Salon will host a Holiday Open House for clients, vendors, friends, and friends of friends. We’re asking all who attend to bring a gift-wrapped, age-appropriate toy (0 to 5 years) for a child served by the home visiting programs. Of greatest need are:

  • Diapers (Size 2 and Size 3)  
  • Developmental toys with sounds and lights

Be sure to label the age/size on the gift wrapping.

In exchange, donors will receive $5 in Karline’s Salon Bonus Bucks to redeem on a hair care service.  Plus, we’ll contribute a portion of the proceeds from our raffle to a Children’s Services Council program.

Admission is free, but you must RSVP here. 

The last word. Many thanks to Charice Robinson, a loyal Karline’s Salon client and friend. Charice provided us with inspiration and direction for our charitable endeavor. She is the Director of Program Budget for Children’s Services Council, a past president of the West Palm Beach Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a proud Wolverine (University of Michigan), and one of our natural hair divas.  She’s an all-around rock star!

Hair Flick Pick: ‘Nappily Ever After’ On Netflix

Posted on by webmaster in Events Leave a comment

Karline's Salon Hair Flick Pick

The “mane (main) attraction” that has everyone talking right now is the Netflix comedy-drama, Nappily Ever After. It’s our pick for a hair flick for two reasons. One, it stars actor Sanaa Lathan of The Best Man, Love and Basketball, Brown Sugar, Disappearing Acts, Nip/Tuck, The Affair, and more. Two, duh, it’s about hair and how women, in particular, view themselves in relation to their hair.

Here’s a sneak peek followed by excerpts from a decider.com review.

 

Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has always spent an inordinate amount of time worrying about her hair. This isn’t unusual, as most Black women want to make sure their hair is as perfect as possible at all times. Violet learned this from her mother Pauletta (Lynn Whitfield), who didn’t even want her to go into the pool when she was 10, for fear of seeing her straightened ‘do frizz out.

Now she’s 35 and a successful advertising executive, turning heads with her perfect hair, power dress, and confident air. She tries so hard to be perfect for her doctor boyfriend Clint (Ricky Whittle) that she wakes up at 5 in the morning, greets her mother at her door, and gets a comb-out just so she can be perfect for when he wakes up.

She’s convinced he’s going to propose during her birthday party. He doesn’t — he buys a dog for them to take care of — and she dumps him when he says that she’s “too perfect” and they’ve been on a “two year first date.” But not before an emergency trip to a new hair salon, where she loses some of her precious locks due to a not-so-purposeful mixup…

Emotionally distraught, she tries a few things with her hair, then sees that Clint has already moved on, which causes her to drunkenly shave her head. After letting go of her hair, can Violet look at herself in a new light?

There are beats in Nappily Ever After where you can see where things are going, especially when it comes to Violet’s relationship with Will. But the most interesting part of the movie, directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour and based on a novel by Trisha R. Thomas, is that the romance at the center of the film isn’t between Violet and Clint or even Violet and Will; it’s between Violet and herself.

Tying Violet’s journey to her hair makes sense when you realize how important hair is to Black women. When Violet lets go of her hair, she lets go of everything that was keeping her from knowing her true self.

Nappily Ever After is filled with great performances, especially from Whitfield as Violet’s demanding mother and Ernie Hudson as Violet’s father Richard, who leaves Pauletta for a career as a 60-year-old male model. The attention he attracts after his first gig hits the newsstands (it’s an underwear spot in a store circular) makes for a good running joke.
