THE ALWAYS STYLISH FIRST LADY
December 3, 2016
It’s safe to say First Lady Michelle Obama’s style during her White House years will forever remain classics. A perfect example is this photo taken of Mrs. Obama with President Obama on Feb. 21, 2010 during the Governors Ball held in the East Room of the White House. Mrs. Obama’s soft bob looks just as great then as it could now—thanks to the cut’s timeless lines. You’ll find more of the First Lady’s mane moves in the Dec./Jan. ’16-’17 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair. But you’ve got to hurry, this special collector’s edition of the magazine will soon be making way for a brand new issue of SBH.

Gorgeous “Power” star Naturi Naughton kicks off the new month with a red carpet mane move we just can’t help but adore! The actress opts to wear her signature bob cut sleeker, softer and detailed with a low part…all the better to set free the cut’s long perimeter layers. It’s the perfect mane move to make for effortless glamour…on the red carpet or for the upcoming holiday parties!

3 Rules For Sleek Style
November 30, 2016
Free-flowing and fabulous, craft a similar mane move like this on longer lengths by flat-ironing tresses smooth. Whether done on Natural lengths, relaxed or texturized, these three heat-styling rules apply:
Rule 1: Protect. Be sure to prime tresses with a heat protectant spray to “shield” hair against the heat applied.
Rule 2: Section mane. The key to a flawless flat-ironing session is in the prep. Separate mane into 1-2 inch sections prior to flat ironing. Secure hair sections you’re not working on with a duckbill clip so they’ll be out of the way.
Rule 3: Select the right heat setting on your flat iron. Your hair’s texture, length and condition will determine the best heat for styling…and that temperature may not necessarily be the highest setting. Use caution.

A rainbow of beautiful hues play nice on these free-flowing waves! Set against an onyx base, the vibrant mane shades are illuminated to create a colorful crown befitting a queen of style. Thank UK hair pro Anne Veck for this mane moment worthy of a walk down the runway.
