The combination of texture and silhouette for this irresistible coif will have heads turning. Sides and back are cropped close, leaving length in the crown. Molded waves are created on the shorter section and big curls are styled on top for a brilliant and modern Mohawk vibe. Styled by Jessica of JCPenney Salon in Raleigh, NC.

Kelis Shows Us How To Rock An Ombre Blonde Cut!

R&B singer Kelis looks gorgeous with her tapered blonde short cut. The singer/cook book author has her sides cut short and her ombre strands brushed backward. The look is completed by a swipe of red lipstick. Kelis has never been afraid to change up her hair, and she nails it each time. Style Tip: Constantly coloring your hair can be tough on your strands if hair isn’t cared for properly. Don’t be afraid to let your roots grow out a little to give your hair a rest between touchups, and to create a striking ombre look. And, don’t forget: condition, condition, condition!

Singer Tamar Braxton Is Rocks The Shaved Look!

Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton recently let go of her wigs and weaves— and shaved her head. The “My Man” singer says she is, “finally free,” on her Instagram page as video plays of her barber taking clippers to her head. The finished look is a chic, short cut that looks amazing on Tamar. We hope she doesn’t step away from the wigs completely, but change is always good. Style Tip: Don’t be afraid to do a Big Chop if you’re truly ready to start anew with your mane.
