SBH'S DAILY DOSE OF STYLE!
BOLD GOLD!
February 7, 2016

bold gold

With new music comes…a new coif color (of course)! Leave it to music star K. Michelle to make a fresh mane statement with a bold, golden hue just in time for her latest CD, More Issues Than Vogue. Soft curls, give this version of the bob cut a decidedly retro-modern vibe while the medley of soft gold and bright platinum is just what a diva used to basking in the spotlight is expected to wear.

SWEET SWEEP
February 5, 2016

sweet sweep

We have a soft spot for a sweet, sideswept bang because it never fails to flatter. Period. Springing from a side part, a to-the-side fringe brings the attention to expressive eyes while adding softness to frame the face. Witness how even more gorgeous actress Naturi Naughton looks in her version of this divine coif detail. The star adds a slight curve to her ends for a textural accent that’s both playful and perfect.

YARA’S RUNWAY-READY MANE
February 4, 2016

yaras runway ready mane

Fans of ABC’s Black-ish have no doubt taken notice to Yara Shahidi’s trendsetting tresses. From long ebony box braids to purple ombre locks to her go-to bouncy tendrils, the teen starlet, who plays the always-stylish “Zoey Johnson,” always makes a statement. But her fabulous mane doesn’t just dazzle audiences on the small screen—she knows how to turn heads on the red carpet! While attending the launch party for fellow fashionista Zendaya’s shoe collection, ‘Daya’ by Zendaya, Yara took the topknot trend from casual to couture with a high fashion upsweep. Deep, espresso strands are smoothed into a sleek chignon at the crown, while bangs are given a blunt, face-framing trim to complete the look. It’s fierce, fun and absolutely fab!

DOUBLE TAKE!
February 3, 2016

double takeWe had to look twice…Known for her voluminous mane of Natural curls (or a super-sleek lengthy look), we had to do a double take when Empire star Serayah stepped out flaunting a sleek topknot. The key to the coif: edges need to be on point whenever stepping out in a coif this streamlined—and the singer/actress delivers! We’re loving how the topknot is pretty flawless, too, with out a stray hair in sight.

LIKE SHE NEVER LEFT
February 2, 2016

like she never left

Just when it seemed Fish Mooney’s fate was sealed … Despite taking a dangerous dive during Gotham’s Season 1 finale, FOX has confirmed that Jada Pinkett Smith will return to the comic book drama for multiple episodes in Season 2! Jada will reprise her role as “Fish Mooney,” the gangster girl boss with a sharp red-and-black snip that strikes fear into her victims. No word yet on just what we’ll see from the fierce villainess this season, but we just know she’s going to be good—or should we say, evil. Gotham’s second season returns on Monday, February 29 on FOX.
