Divatress Wigs are great for a Spring change!

Spring is here and it’s a great time to update your look. I was contacted by the fine folks at Divatress to review their cute wigs. You know, I love a good wig. It’s a great way to try something new without all the commitment. And, if you’re like me, you aren’t trying cut & color your hair, but you want the change. So, check out the Zury collection of Divatress wigs.

These lightweight, easy to style, and affordable wigs will definitely update your spring look and have everyone talking. Number one reason I love this retailer, THE PRICE! You can play around with different styles, and still stay on budget. That’s all I needed to see. Below, I spotlight three of my favorite wigs from the Zury collection. I’m sure you’ll see me rocking one of these looks in the next couple of weeks. Let’s get started:

SLAY Lacefront Anka Wig – 31.95

When I think of a fun wig, my mind automatically goes to a fun color! This Lacefront, middle-part wig, with rose-gold ombre is so daring and super cute for spring. My natural hair is too sensitive for extreme color, but this is the perfect way for me to experiment with length and color without jacking up my situation.

Naturali Star Ronda Wig – 32.95
If you aren’t ready to try color, but want a bit more fun, this curly, yet romantic look is just for you. It comes in a natural colors, and can be  blended into you hair. Just a slight change with a big outcome. Hit the link and you’ll see they have some fun color combos if you’re willing to take the risk.
Sis DIVA Kayla Wig – 29.95

This one is for my ladies who want to make an extreme change without the extreme commitment. Never had a short cut before, never tried an out-the-box color – this wig is for YOU! Take this baby on vacation and have fun as your alter-ego!

MY STYLE: New HAIR with Private Label Extensions

Hair installed by Unique J

Last month, I was contacted by Private Label Extensions to try out their hair extensions. As someone who loves to change their look, I was more than happy to try out their product. Changing my look with hair extensions and wigs is my specialty – it makes me feel like a new woman. Plus, it’s good to give my curls a rest with a protective style like hair extensions.

Private Label Extensions is a wholesale hair supplier that helps stylists and salons purchase high-end hair for their clients. Hair extensions are a hot commodity in the style community. Like, I said before, hair extensions are a great way to change your look without destroying your natural hair. Women everywhere have used hair extensions and clip-ins to help transform themselves. This company provides clients with quality hair at amazing prices. In addition to the kinky-curly texture, shown below, the company provides several curl patterns and colors to serve the most particular client.

When I received my hair, I was so impressed by the quality. The hair was dense on the weft and the curls were voluminous. I couldn’t wait to call my stylist to set up the installation. I’ve had alot of hair installations in my life and I can say this hair is some of the best. When my stylist, Unique, saw the hair she was highly impressed. She remarked that the hair was easy to work with and laid nicely on the track.

I’m so happy to have collaborated with Private Label Extensions. If you are a salon owner or stylist, I encourage you to try the company. The hair is high quality, long lasting, and thick. The company provides step-by-step instructions for branding you new hair business, shipping to clients, and even opportunities to partner with the brand. Make sure you give Private Label Extensions a try.

MY LIFE: Tales of the $20 Wig

The wig is too fly to keep to myself. Get you one HERE

I’ve always liked trying new styles, hence why I run a fashion & lifestyle blog! Duh! So, when I started to get the itch to cut my hair, my home-girl suggested we go wig shopping. Oh snap! We found this wig and it was on like popcorn (ok let me stop). Let’s get into the details:

(links used are Amazon affiliate links, but girl, get your shopping ON!)

Y’all, this wig the PERFECT departure from my usual big curly hair. I used to wear my hair cut like this back in 2009. That was when I had a relaxer. But, when I started my natural hair journey, I couldn’t achieve this straight look. Rocking a wig give your natural hair a rest, and allows you to try different styles without commitment.

Y’all know I had to do an impromptu photoshoot

Also, the wig game has STEPPED UP. Everyone thought I cut and colored by real hair. This wig is very lightweight and cool. If your head is too small or too big, don’t fret, this wig is adjustable. It comes in 4 different colors (natural black, blonde highlights, green highlights, and purple highlights). The wig is synthetic. I would recommend you purchasing a wig cap to further protect your hair and give you some traction so your wig doesn’t slip.

Shout out to FreeTress for their amazing synthetic and AFFORDABLE wigs. And thanks to Amazon prime, for that overnight delivery! It feels good to try something new when the price is easy on your pockets.

Made my brother join in on the fun, LOL!

So, I recommend that you take a tour of the Freetress, synthetic wigs, on Amazon’s site. Get you one for the weekend! Try something different, even if it’s just temporary. It’s allays fun, to have a little fun. Do you do the wig life? Let me know in the comment’s section!

#WhatToWear: International Natural Hair Meet-Up Day 2016

On May 21 it’s International Natural Hair Meet-Up Day (INHMD)! This day was created to encourage black women to celebrate their natural hair. This year, I’ve been asked to speak on a panel to discuss style and rocking your natural hair. It’s an important conversation! Plus, I do write a natural hair blog, Natural in Nashville. Even though I’m not a licensed cosmetologist, I can connect you to the right resources.
Why is the discussion of personal style and hair so important? Because, allowing your curly, coily, or kinky hair free (when you are used to wearing it straight) can be a hard for some women to deal with. I mean, it’s a total change of style. Plus, there’s such a stigma when women, especially black women, start taking pride in the bodies they were born in. Our confidence can be hit hard.
 
So attending a natural hair meet-up is a good way to increase your confidence when learning a new style. You can see other women rocking their various styles, learn new techniques, and even buy new products. It’s one of the best events you can attend.


Of course, I had to hook you up with some style inspiration for those attending a International Natural Hair Meet-Up event in their city. From classic to cute, these outfit inspirations are gonna have you looking real cute with you new fly hair! Hope to see you at the Nashville INHMD event. 
#WhatToWear: #INHMD - Look 3

 

 
I’m loving this cute casual look. If you aren’t a girl who wears heels, you can swap these out with a cute pair of sneakers. Of course, this is the perfect event to rock your favorite graphic tee. This one is from www.ownyourblackness.com. They have tons of cute tees with cool slogans on the front. Check them out.

This next look is so ON TREND – denim on denim is the way to be this spring. This look is great to rock to the INHMD event and then go to get a meal with your girls. And, yes, this head-wrap is a must for this year. Try it out.

Lastly, this chic look is for my flirty fashionistas. Again, INHMD is a great time to meet new women who are rocking their fly hair. You know we gotta look out best. Try this basic but chic look as you get ready to meet some new friend. 
 
So, I hope to see you at INHMD Nashville event. Unfortunately, the event SOLD OUT. But you know I’ll have a review for you on Monday. 


 

FAB FAVES: Creme of Nature Argan Oil products

This week’s FAB FAVE is one I’m super excited about. I’ve been a Creme of Nature user for a long time. So, when the ladies at Creme of Nature reached out to me to try their updated & improved Argan Oil products. I already loved their Argan Oil leave-in spray and edge control, but I never got a chance to try the WHOLE line. Below, I show you my results. I gotta say, I love the products!

I usually reserve hair care reviews for Natural in Nashville posts, but since NIN is on hiatus, I thought you all wouldn’t mind. For my new readers, I have ‘natural hair’. Which means my hair doesn’t have any chemical straighteners or colors. My hair is EXTREMELY curly –  I have super tight curls. I decided to use the Creme of Nature product to give my curls some definition.

The cool thing about Creme of Nature’s improved Argan Oil line is the color-coded style guide. Each product has a special color code to help you distinguish which product would work best for your curl type. What I like most about this product is how it smells! OMG! My hair smelled so good after washing & conditioning. Second best is the the shine & softness – my 4B hair loved this product. I’d definitely say give it a try.

EVENT REVIEW: Natural in Nashville’s NINmeetup

Sorry I’ve been MIA, but my duties at Natural in Nashville kinda took over my life! Natural in Nashville is a natural hair and lifestyle blog I created. The blog has been around for about 3 years and this was out first major event. We had our natural hair meetup on Sunday and it went wonderfully! There’s a gang of pictures on Instagram (@NaturalinNash). So, make your way over there.

A natural hair meet-up is a time for women (usually women of color) to get together and discuss hair! Traditionally, black and Latino women would use chemical processes to straighten their hair, but now, there’s a major movement to encourage women to stop using harsh chemical straighteners in their hair. Various studies suggest the chemical straighteners are linked to high amounts of fibroid tumors and other health issues (source).

That’s one of the reasons why Natural in Nashville is so important to me. Of course, with both sites (Fab Glance and Natural in Nashville) my number one aim is to help women feel good about themselves. Whether it’s the clothes they wear or how they style their hair, all women should feel confident. The confidence factor was quite evident at the meet-up on Sunday. Plenty of attendants came to me and said they loved the solidarity of sisterhood in the room. I loved it! 

CelebStyle: Beyonce gets ANOTHER fab haircut!

So last week Beyonce debuted a new short pixie cut. The fans were 50/50 on the new short look – some loved it, some hated it. I was just happy that she tried something new. The word in the street was that her hair wasn’t cut it was just a wig. Either way, seems as though Queen Bey wasn’t happy either because she debuted a NEW NEW style at a concert yesterday.

Beyonce is now rocking a sleek asymmetrical bob cut. Now this, this I LOOOVE! This length and cut suits her much better. The color works better too. Beyonce shows us that even the most fly can make a couple of style mistakes. 
You loving this new NEW look?   

Celeb Style: Beyonce debuts new short pixie cut

Just as I was about to close my eyes, I decided to hop on Instagram. To my surprise I find 3 photos of Beyonce with SHORT HAIR! What!??

I guess the Queen wanted to switch it up! Makes sense. She just finished the first leg of her world tour – what a great time to debut a new look while you prepare a new show. 

Are we loving Beyonce’s new look? Seems like short is the way to go this summer. Does this mean the end If the glorious Beyonce weave!? Only time will tell. But hey, I’m feeling it!

CELEB STYLE: Rihanna gets ICE GREY hair for 2013

Hate her or love her – Rihanna is a style icon. She switches the game every so often and the crowd foes wild! Last night, via instagram, Rihanna gave her fans a sneak peek of her new GREY hair.

Rihanna goes from blond bombshell to grey ice princess

The once blond popstar posted three pics of her new hair – complete with side shave and long steel grey extensions. Rihanna posted, “GREY is the new BLACK!” Hmm, are you feeling Ri-Ri’s new look. I have to admit, I’m kinda like it. Uh-oh, I see a Fall 2013 trend coming!

Of course, my favorite Rihanna look will ALWAYS be the short, jet-black, pixie cut. However, Rihanna, always encourages changing up your look and forgetting what the haters have to say.

EVENT: Music City Naturals – Natural Hair Event, May 11

If you have natural hair or want to learn more about the movement – you need to be at this event. Natural in Nashville and Nash Naturals of Facebook are hosting the Music City Natural Natural Hair Event, Saturday May 11, 2p -6p. Click here to purchase tix.

What is ‘The Natural Hair Movement’? Well, in the African-American community, many women struggle to maintain their haircare routines because our hair is commonly tightly curled and prone to various environmental factors that prohibit hair growth. Many women lean on harsh chemical treatments, commonly called ‘relaxers’ to help their hair stay straight. The natural hair movement came about to aid women to in staying away from such treatments and learn to embrace their hair.

Now, there are clubs, websites, and product developments all aimed at helping women of color feel more beautiful. Natural in Nashville is one of the outlets that encourages women to embrace their natural hair. When you come to the event, you’ll get a chance to meet local/national vendors, panel discussion, product demonstrations, and info sharing – with music and refreshments. This is a great time to come and learn about new products and services available in Middle Tennessee. Hope to see you there!
