READY TO MAKE WAVES?
September 30, 2014
We thought so…Gorgeous waves aren’t just reserved for longer lengths. Check out this chic cut featuring structured finger-waves morphing into loose, full-boded ripples through the crown. Add a splash of gold (strategically placed on the fringe) to bring even more attention to your pretty face and we’re sure this look will be one you’ll crave this season. For more beautiful style ideas, don’t miss our Autumn collection of coifs in the “First Look At Fall” style portfolio featured in the November ’14 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!

SHORT & CHIC

She’s got new music and a hot look. Who are we talking about? Singer Jennifer Hudson a.k.a. JHud! We’re loving how her short cut has morphed into a myriad of styles—like this swept-back version. Make the look your own by asking your stylist to shape tapered layers and sides, leaving just enough length through the crown for versatility. Fashion a deep side part and dab on a bit of pomade through lengths. Then, use a wide-tooth comb to sweep everything off the face. Gorgeous!
