How would you describe this look?

Ahkivah is a regular client who’s natural hair is tightly coiled and about 4-5″ long. She was looking for a long, soft but edgy look for an upcoming wedding she was attending.

We chose a sew in installation as the protective style, and for this client, we like neutral colors in the brown family to bring out the natural brightness of her skin.

Any advice for someone considering it?

When considering a style like this I would recommend an extensive consultation with your stylist to determine what route to take to achieve the desired style without damaging the hair.

How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a blonde balayage bob! The BBB! The entire look was a win for myself and my client! We had been transitioning from dark to light for a few months and got the final look we were looking for.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would educate them on the process of transitioning from dark natural hair to blonde. It is not an overnight process. To maintain the integrity of their hair, it’s important to do it responsibly. Although they may be excited about having a new do, it typically takes around 3 sessions to achieve this look!

How would you describe this look?

This look is pretty feisty considering how blunt it is while staying in its natural state. I love it better when it’s cut above the shoulder, so you can capture the bluntness of it. I like this look with or without color. Here, she wanted a few highlights, and that made the style stand out even more! Love it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I suggest getting quality hair that does well while being in its natural state – not too curly but just right. We used raw curly hair from Jritzy Hair Collection. Those with a longer neck, slimmer face, this look is for you! If you are on the go and don’t have time to style in the mornings, this style is perfect. Water and a moisturizing conditioner in a spray bottle will be your best friend.

How would you describe this look?

This look is a funky pixie modern cut that is stylish. The greatest thing about it is the mixing of colors which brightens the face and keeps one awake and present.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Look at the shape of your head and face. This style suits oval face shapes. Your lifestyle also has to complement the look! When I talk of lifestyle, I mean your dress code and your make-up have to be on point to bring out the look. It’s suitable for young women.
