Seductive Side Swept Bang

image 9

Nothing says “Come hither” or ‘Take me I’m yours” like a voluminous set of curls and an exaggerated side swept bang. This hairstyle provides a little bit of mystique while still serving up the sexy. Trust me, no man (or woman #nojudging) will be able to keep his eyes off of you. Unless, of course, you’re naked, then he might find it a bit difficult.

Anywho, here are a few more photos of the dramatic side swept bang :

If you’d like to give this look a try, here’s an awesome video detailing how you can achieve it on your own (because no one wants to spend $200 bucks on something they can do themselves) :

Good luck!

Fun at The Crocker Club

photo 3
Last night I hit
 the mean streets of LA with one of my favorite coworkers, S Boogie. A group of her good friends and I decided to dip into The Crocker Club on Spring Street.

When we arrived, there was NO ONE inside of the club. I guess the $10 cover charge was for the air that I’d be breathing. Despite the lack of patrons, I still had a pretty good time (but that could be the leftover cranberry and vodka talking!). The venue was pretty clean. There were a couple of dance floors and several small rooms for private parties. Drinks were reasonably priced. Bartenders were VERY easy on the eyeballs. And they played all types of music ranging from Migos’ Versace to Miley Cyrus’ We Won’t Stop

I had a blast! That is until, some random girl YANKED me up and tried to seduce me.  She kept dancing on me and whispering in my ear. Then she asked “Have you ever been with a girl?” To that I responded :

   

The madness did not end there! I then met a guy named JaQuincy. Yes, JAQuincy.  Because Quincy just was not enough. Anywho, this fool was grabbing numbers LEFT and RIGHT . . . ALL up in my face lol. No shame was there to be found! He also got that good ol :

All-in-all, the night was amazing!

Rainy Days Call For Curly Hair

CurlyD2

It is getting really cold in Los Angeles. And I’m not talking about that 60 degrees type “cold” that east coasters call summer. It is LITERALLY 39 degrees right now! I can neither cope nor comprehend!

CurlyD1

In the interest of staying warm this winter season, I’ve been wearing my Arjuni Curly D hair extensions. Check out that ear coverage!

My only concern with this hair style is that, Corporate America might think it’s “a bit much”. To that I say : “Screw you! I’m cold!”

Photos From This Weekend’s Surprise Bridal Shower

IMG_9634

Well, if I’m not going to get married anytime soon, there’s no reason why others shouldn’t! This past weekend, I attended a “surprise” (the bride was FULLY aware) red-themed bridal shower for my little cousin. I’ve watched her grow up and now I get to cheer her on from the sidelines as she walks down the aisle. I’m so happy for her!

Me and the girls. And by girls I mean, my curls.

Things got a bit raunchy!
OMG! This had to be THE single most uncomfortable situation I’ve ever been involved in. The stripper couldn’t dance. He had tan lines on his booty and we were all through with him after about five minutes. I felt bad because NO ONE was giving him money, so I threw out a few desperation dollars and then closed my eyes for the rest of the show. The struggle was real for this stripper!

A Night Out WIth My Arjuni Curly C

Despite being on the brink of catching pneumonia (excuse my hyperbole), I went out to a lounge last night. I decided to ditch the Kim Kardashian curls for the night and instead go with my long luxurious Lashontae Heckard curls. You couldn’t tell me anything last night! Boy was I feeling myself.

I also decided to try a red lip for the night. It definitely took some getting used to. I actually almost wiped it off before heading out the door. However, I didn’t want to look like I had been kissing a bag of koolaid, so I kept it on.

Makeup Products Used :

 MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil
MAC Embark Eyeshadow
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet
MAC Blacktrack Fluid Cream Eyeliner
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NW45
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NW 40
MAC Currant Lip Pencil
Revlon Matte Lipstick – In The Red (007)
MAC Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

The night was an absolute fail for many reasons. However, I sure did look good! 😉

It’s A Celebration Every Time We Link Up

Last night I went out for a drink (or two) with one of my good friends.
I didn’t have time or the energy to do anything with my hair. Luckily, my Arjuni hair extensions are able to hold a curl for days #truestory.
I had a great time….even though I danced with air the entire night!

Five Signs That It’s Time To Uninstall Your Hair Extensions

Ladies, we’ve all been guilty of keeping hair extensions in for too long. At least I know I have! I mean, there were times when my hair extensions were hanging on to nothing more than a prayer and a dream.  And I was absolutely shameless! You couldn’t tell me anything!

Then one faithful day, I realized that I was losing my hair! Something had to give. And it certainly wasn’t going to be any more of my hair! I soon discovered (the hard way) that I was keeping my hair extensions installed for far too long. I needed to transition into better weave-wearing practices.

So after months of trial and error, I came up with a list of tell-tell signs that will help us all determine when it’s time to just…let…go.

Let’s get started!

1.    Unruly New Growth. If your new growth has caused your hair extensions to “grow” from 12 to 20 inches, I think it’s time to uninstall. New growth is great. But after being tucked away for so long, it starts to wrap around itself and cause irreparable damage. 

2.     Unpleasant Odor. If you’ve ever worn hair extensions, you already know the smell! The one that shampoo and conditioner can’t mask. Yea, that one. Let’s keep it real! Nobody wants to smell that. So if you ever notice an unpleasant order originating from above your neck, I’d recommend uninstalling and giving your natural hair a good wash down.

3.    Tracks Hanging On For Dear Life. Bobby pins can only do so much! If there’s ever a point where you have 50+ pins holding up 2.2 tracks, let it go! Just uninstall.

4.    Permanent Ponytail. Hair extensions are not cheap. And I don’t know about you all, but I don’t buy them to keep them trapped in a permanent ponytail. If you find that your tresses have lost their lust for life, go ahead and put them out of their misery. They shouldn’t have to live like that. And neither should you!

5.     Shedding. If you’re leaving behind more hair than a cancerous kitten, the only thing left to do is uninstall. Seriously. There is no bigger crime in life than leaving behind trails of hair everywhere! Uninstall. Trust me, the remote, the kitchen sink, the mattress and the children will thank you!

And that’s it! These five simple tips will save us all from unnecessary headaches and hair loss. And I’m sure there are even more helpful tips! So if you think of any others, please feel free to leave them in a comment down below!

Arjuni Wavy A With a Subtle Splash of Color

I have absolutely NO shame when it comes to leaving the house with a scarf on. Zip. Zilch. Nada! Some times, some places and some people are just not worth the effort of removing it.
This includes Best Buy. I went there this weekend to return a gift that I bought for my father. He didn’t want it. Rude. Lol. Anywho, I had my natural hair out and I TRIED to get cute. Boy did I try it! I slicked down my baby hairs with some prostyle (again, no shame!) and tied them down with a scarf.
Now, anyone who’s ever used gel or wax to slick down their hair, knows that you can’t just walk about all willy-nilly without scarfing it down. You’ll end up walking around with that Blue Ivy special (no shade, but SHADE!).
Anywho, I digress. After I returned from Best Buy, I got to recreating one of my babies.
There she is! And do you see that color?! Oooo kill em! This specs are as follows :
Company : www.arjuni.com
Pattern : A
Style : Wavy
Lengths : 18 – 26
Luster : Medium (on the low side)
Ounces : 12
Final Look :
Side note : I’ve been playing around with lipstick. Excited about the possibilities!
