‘Sister Sister’  ….Every girl who grew up in the 90’s definitely remembers Tia and Tamera’s curly hair and blossom hats. Ha! Fun times.

Hairspiration: Gina Torres

29 Jul

You may have seen her in “I Think I Love My Wife,” maybe along side her hubby Laurence Fishburne or in one of her other many tv and movie roles; but every Thursday I watch Gina Torres play the well-dressed, fiery lawyer Jessica Pearson on the USA network series Suits. And I love her thick, naturally curly, full head of hair.

My Giiirlfriends!!!

25 Jul

One of my favorite tv series is Girlfriends. I miss that show 😩 For me, one of the things that stood out about the ladies on the show was their hair. Toni’s got shorter, Lynn’s got straighter, Joan’s got bigger and Mya’s (thank ya Jesus) got better. I remember in season one Mya’s (and Lynn’s to be honest) hair always looked stringy and messy. Thankfully it got much better in later seasons of the show. Here’s a look back at the leading ladies of Girlfriends and their hair.

Earlier seasons…

Later seasons…

And although she may not have been one of “the girls” or the most likable character on the show, you must admit, Monica had nice (big) hair. Top left pic, one of my faves.

Cinnamon Bun

I cut my twist some and I was able to throw it up in a bun without it being so heavy.

A Braided Beyonce’

18 Jul

Looks like Beyonce’ took a cue from younger sis Solange. She was recently spotted all braided up with baby Blue in arms. I love these braids. Last week, I tried to wear my Senegalese twist up in a bun like this but it was much too “heavy heavy” (Dreamgirls voice).  Looks like Bey’ has it under control.

Angela Simmons: Indique Virgin Hair

17 Jul

Well ladies, it looks like Angela Simmons has more up her sleeve than sneakers.  I recently saw via twitter that she has a new hair extension line.

Simmons says about her line:

“Why Bikini and why IndiquĂ©? To me, hair is a statement and an extension of your wardrobe and I’ve always been drawn to fashion and being able to change up my look.  This partnership seemed natural, much like the naming of Bikini.  A Bikini is the staple piece during the hot summer months or while on vacation, and the name perfectly describes the beachy texture of my first hair line.”
