teen beauty

Actress Yara Shahidi is turning heads with her beauty and talent on the hit TV show “Black-ish.” But this stunning 15-year-old, who takes on the role of fashionista “Zoey” on the series, is a down-to-earth sister who keeps her style regimen and her attitude real. “It’s the look I was born with and I just love the texture of my curls,” she shares with SBH about her Natural style. And when it comes to show biz, she takes this advice from her cousin—rap superstar Nas—to heart: “He [told] me and my brothers to love who we are as human beings and makes sure we stay true to [ourselves].” For more of our exclusive convo with Yara, check out the March/April ’15 issue of SBH on sale now.

chic and short

We’re thinking warm-weather thoughts (even though Winter is still officially with us). And in that spirit we present this gorgeous short cut detailed with tapered sides, sleek texture and brow-brushing bangs. We especially adore the long fringe since it gives the streamlined shape added movement and allows the option of wearing it forward (as show here) or directed off the face for added versatility. For more style ideas to try—and the new season style predictions from top celebrity hairstylists—check out the “Trending for 2015” special hairstyle portfolio in the March/April ’15 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair.

kaleidoscope coif

Avant-garde color, cutting and styling techniques come together to craft this creative coif. “Strong wigs are fast becoming an accessory for any fashionista,” declares hairstylist Neville Ramsay about this look from his uniquely artistic “Kaleidoscope” hair collection. Crafted on a wig splashed with vibrant shadings, the British hair guru also shows off precision cutting skills via “shattered” layers throughout. “It’s a wig on wig collection with bold extreme color, texture and strong lines,” details Ramsay. “I was influenced by the street trends of today.”

curly and colorful inspiration

Those spirals, that color…Singer Natalie La Rose is our hairstyle inspiration today with her amazing coif!  “Most of it is my own but I like to [use extensions] occasionally,” shared the “Somebody” singer exclusively during a recent visit with Sophisticate’s Black Hair. As for that radiant red hue, Natalie tells us, “I try not to dye it as much and when it starts to fade, I use a color rinse so it keeps the red glow to it.”
