Hair Trend Weigh In: Unicorn Hair

Two years ago, what we thought was a passing whimsical fad, is now a full-blown color trend: Unicorn Rainbow Hair. We’re way beyond the My Little Pony obsession and deeply rooted in the power of multicolor hair expression.

In What’s Really Behind Unicorn Fever, a 2017 Refinery 29 article, Jess Weiner, a brand strategist and CEO of Talk To Jess, explains:

Women are in need of fantastical magic in their lives right now, because we’re surrounded by culture and politics that are very bleak and dark and oppressive,” she says. “Unicorns are rare, they’re powerful, and they’re imaginary, so they’re capable of anything. And they do have a certain girly undertone because many of us associate them with our childhood, so they’re unapologetically feminine. Why wouldn’t we own something that’s just for us and inspires us to believe in our otherworldly capabilities? We’re being faced with some dire messaging around being female. Unicorns are our chance to escape and have some fun.

And speaking of unapologetically feminine, powerful, and fun, look no further than Cardi B. and Nikki Minaj. The following excerpt, originally published at bet.com, found a common bond between the two rap divas.

No Cap! Cardi B And Nicki Minaj Are Back Slaying The Unicorn Rainbow Hair

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have feuded in the past, but these two have more in common than being super star rappers, they both have a love for the rainbow color unicorn inspired wigs.

ICYMI: Nicki has been going through a complete makeover. After firing her entire glam squad, the 35-year-old rapper showed off her fleshly laid wig done by her new stylist, Arrogant Tae, and fans instantly fell in love with her pastel multi-colored half-up-half-down ‘do.

If you’re considering Unicorn Rainbow Hair, consult with your hairstylist. Show pictures so that he/she can see what you have in mind. A few words of caution. Unicorn Rainbow color is not a hair transformation to try at home. It requires the expertise and artistry of a trained professional. Are you ready to rock Unicorn Rainbow Hair?

The beYOUtiful Life: Kelly Rowland’s Hair Anthem

Kelly Rowland Hair Anthem

In this edition of The beYOUtiful Life, for so many reasons we are obsessed with Kelly Rowland’s latest track, Crown.

Crown is a hair anthem for all types and textures and empowers young and old alike to be proud of their locks. Let’s go behind the mike for the backstory. The following excerpt was originally published at yahoo.com.

Kelly Rowland, in partnership with Dove, just released an inspiring new track titled “Crown” that’s all about loving your locks no matter what. The accompanying video shows off a group of young girls shutting down bullies, embracing their beauty and rocking out alongside the Destiny’s Child alum.

Speaking to PEOPLE about the video and her inspiration behind the song, Rowland, 37, says the lyrics “My hair, my crown” comes from “having love for your hair. Gaining the confidence to be able to wear it however you please, or to cut it however you please, have your texture however you please.”

Kelly Rowland Releases Inspiring New \'Crown\' Video with Dove to Help Girls Love Their Hair

Rowland’s billowing curls are on full display in the video alongside girls like Tyrielle Davis and Faith Fennidy, who made headlines when they were ordered to leave school due to having braids or extensions in their hair. “I was pissed, to be honest,” says Rowland of hearing the girls’ stories.

“It’s enough stuff that young people have to go through, and for you to basically be bullying them, a school to be bullying them and telling them what they should look like or how they should wear their hair. You are out of place. You are not their parents.”

…Rowland herself made the decision to rock her natural hair. “My nieces and my son are looking at me. That’s it, that was the whole reason I wanted to go natural. I wanted them to see natural hair on me every and anywhere that I went. Whether it was on TV, wherever it was, I thought that was important.”

What do you think about Rowland’s hair anthem, Crown? Does it inspire you to love your hair? Give it a fab or fair rating in the comments section of this post.

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.

Orange Obsession-Nicki Minaj

In this edition of the beYOUtiful Life, let’s look at one of the hair colors Nicki Minaj rocked to usher in the start of a new season. We just have to ask, orange you obsessed?  We confess this color gives us life!

It’s all pumpkin spice lattes, chunky knits, and jack-o-lanterns from here on out, and some people are expressing that more boldly than others. Nicki Minaj now has orange hair, and it’s going to inspire you to step up your own hair game this autumn.

A post shared by Barbie® (@nickiminaj) on

She posted the new look to her Instagram, sharing a series of video clips of her at the Queen Radio studio, right before she recorded the most recent sixth episode. (For those not in the know, Queen Radio is Minaj’s new radio show on Beats 1, which premiered earlier in August.) In the first clip, Minaj debuts her orange hair in a high half-pony, making a face like a Barbie, and moving around the camera to show different angles of her satin pink suit. The caption read #BarbieDreams, referencing one of the songs on her newest album, Queen.

Sitting in front of her pink “Queen Radio” sign and decked out all in pink and diamonds, the orange hair especially popped against the saturated rose colors.

Her hair was left in crimped waves, with the top half thrown into an I Dream of Jeannie-esque ponytail wrapped with a gold hair tie that helped it stay firmly up. The hue is a vibrant, neon orange shade that makes a bold statement.

But just because the rap icon changed her hair color doesn’t necessarily mean it will stay that shade for too long. Just a day later, Minaj posted another short video onto Instagram, where she was sitting in the back seat of a car with her black hair curling and her hoodie up, listening to some of her older tracks while on her way to her Philadelphia concert.

Having said that, the artist debuted another orange-tinged hair look at the actual show, wearing an ombre orange hairstyle that went well past her waist. It was bright yellow on top that faded into a fiery orange, proving that the sunset color palette is definitely in this season.

This also isn’t the first time that she donned neon orange hair, where she also played with the color back in 2010, just in a short, teased bob. Rocking lots of volume and curling in at the ends, it was a more retro take than her back-skimming locks eight years later.

Seeing how Minaj is known for her frequent hair changes, this bright orange look probably won’t stick around for too long, but it’s amazing to see while it lasts.

The beYOUtiful Life: Rihanna’s Short Bob

Posted on by webmaster in Hair Styles Leave a comment

The beYOUtiful Life-Karlines Salon

In this edition of The beYOUtiful Life, let’s take a look at Rihanna’s latest hairstyle, the short bob.

There have been plenty of hair transformations this summer, but this one might just be the best one yet. As Cosmopolitan found, Rihanna now has a bob for the end of summer. She’s chopping off all her hair for her and serving some major inspiration for all of her fans. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect hair inspiration to show your stylist, this is it.

Rihanna Short Bob

This is a pretty drastic change from the singer’s recent look. In case you don’t remember, Rihanna was just showing off waist-length hair the week before. There’s a good chance that the ultra-long hair was extensions, since she was seen with medium-length hair just weeks before that. Regardless, this bob is a whole lot shorter than it used to be.

Rihanna has been very busy on social media lately. When she’s not sharing Fenty Beauty makeup hacks or giving a sneak preview of her new lingerie, she’s apparently showing off new hair. The singer took to Instagram Stories to give a little hair flip to her new bob.

Rihanna’s hairstyle is a lot shorter than you’re used to seeing on her. The cut comes above her shoulders for a choppy, layered bob. This hairstyles looks gorgeous on her. But, then again, there aren’t too many hairstyles that don’t.

It’s not the first time that the star has rocked a super-short look though. A bob seems to be Rihanna’s go-to look. She’s constantly switching up her style from super long to super short and everything in-between. There’s no word on who chopped off all of her hair this time, but the stylist definitely knows what he or she is doing.

The singer is all about social media these days, so it only makes sense that she shared the first snap of the new hairstyle there. On top of showing fans her new bob, she also gave a full Fenty Beauty tutorial just days before. She showed her fans what the brand new Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette looked like in action. Plus she even gave away a tip to use Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks as lipstick.

Rihanna hasn’t been spotted anywhere else with her new hair style, as of July 26. So if you’re looking for a photo to show your hair stylist for inspiration, you’ll have to take a screenshot of her Instagram Stories.

Hair Trend Weigh In — The Mohawk

Posted on by webmaster in Hair Solutions, Hair Styles Leave a comment

Hair Trend Weigh In The Mohawk

What’s old is new and in again! That’s the story with the Mohawk, a style that’s making a fashionable and functional comeback.  Our friends at the Jamaica Observer provide a few reasons to consider this bold hair style.

The summer heat can be very harmful to your hair, particularly if your hair falls within the “thick, black hair” category. The thickness of the hair makes the scalp more likely to heat up, causing heat damage to the hair, and leads to the possibility of dehydration.

To those problems, the Mohawk may very well be the solution. It is not only functional; it will set you apart from the crowd in any situation.

Hair Trends — Mohawks Making A Comeback?

The origin of the modern Mohawk is often attributed to the Filthy Thirteen — a military unit of 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the United States army — whose part Native-American leader Jake McNiece encouraged his troops to get the Mohawk haircuts and put on war paint as a morale-building exercise. Later, through the prevalence of pop and rock stars sporting the bold ‘do, the Mohawk became increasingly popular.

As with all trends, though, the popularity of the Mohawk has sometimes waned. But, with such celebrities as Jada Pinkett Smith, Keri Hilson and, of course, Bajan superstar Rihanna often opting for the edgy ‘do, its resulting resurgence was inevitable.

Because regular and careful shaving or trimming is required for the maintenance of the clean line between the shaved and unshaved (or short and longer) options, the style is sometimes considered high maintenance.

The Mohawk is highly touted for its versatility because it lends itself — pending preference — to a wide range of looks in varying styles and degrees of intricacy. And even if the cut or shave is not for you, variations of the faux hawk can serve as great alternatives. Today, Mohawks are customized with braids, curls, and, for added drama, fashioned in a kaleidoscope of colors.

If you’re looking to turn heads…, a bold hair statement might just be the perfect way to go about it. And, for now, at least, the Mohawk is quite possibly the loudest of… trends, and is a great way of averting some of the heat.

If you’re considering the Mohawk, consult with your hairstylist. Bring in pictures so that he/she can see what you have in mind. A few words of caution. The Mohawk is not a hair transformation to try at home. It requires the expertise and precision of a trained professional. Are you ready to rock the Mohawk?

The beYOUtiful Life: Hair Notes from the 2018 BET Awards

The beYOUtiful Life-Karlines Salon

In this edition of The beYOUtiful Life, let’s flashback to the 2018 BET Awards with a few hair notes and observations.

 

Big, bright hair color won at the 2018 BET Awards

 

 

 

Every year, black women and men illuminate the BET Awards red carpet with an array of gorgeous beauty looks, and this year, vibrant hair colors were all the rage. From Blac Chyna’s silver waves to Nicki Minaj’s tie-dye strands, hairstyles showed off a burst of hues in different textures and lengths. Scroll through to see the coolest and most colorful hair at the 2018 BET Awards.

 

 

 

Then, there was the long ponytail that swayed and slayed.  We were still fawning over Tiffany Haddish’s wavy, waist-length ponytail at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, when those at the 2018 BET Awards, knocked this most basic hairstyle out of the park.

The comedian hosted the night’s event – but her wavy, waist-length ponytail was no joke.

 

Long Ponytails Of All Textures Ruled The BET Awards Red Carpet

Sorry, Oscars – but the BET Awards are one of our favorite carpets of the year. It’s not every show that you get to see Michael B. Jordan and BlocBoy JB under the same roof, you know? And you damn sure won’t see Anita Baker and Nicki Minaj brush shoulders anywhere else, either.

Some of our very favorites from the 2018 BET Awards were the natural hair and protective styles that are just perfect for summer days and sleepless nights in South Florida. Skim some of the photos in the article below. You’ll fall in love with Logan Browning’s faux locs and Amandla Stenberg’s rainbow braid.

The Best Natural & Protective Styles At The 2018 BET Awards

There’s a reason why you’ll see the BET Awards referred to as a family reunion of sorts: It’s the one awards show where the brown and Black faces that star in our favorite movies and music videos come together for a glorious night of celebrating us being us.

 

And then there’s Lakeith Stanfield, known for his roles in the film Get Out and the TV series Atlanta. There’s nothing we can say, except FAIL.

Folks can’t get enough of Lakeith Stanfield’s new look on the BET Awards red carpet. The “Get Out” and “Atlanta” actor appeared on the red carpet wearing a black wig pulled into two pigtails and barrettes to bring the entire look together.
