SBH'S DAILY DOSE OF STYLE!
SHE’S GOLDEN
April 23, 2018

Jasmine Sanders Looks Summer Chic With Her Blonde Waves

Jasmine Sanders looks stunning with her ombre vanilla-blonde strands styled into a shoulder-length lob (long bob). The top model has her hair parted on the side and curled into soft waves along the ends. With this look, Jasmine once again lives up to her nickname, “Golden Barbie.” Style Tip: Blonde is a very high-maintenance color (hello, frequent color touch ups). Preserve you natural strands, while enjoying the coif color move, by opting for a golden lace-front wig instead!

TEXTURED TOPKNOT

Henry Danger’s Riele Downs Rocks Her Mesmerizing Curls…

Henry Danger actress Riele Downs looks stylish with her ebony Natural curls on display. The Nickelodeon star has her hair pulled up into a textured topknot with an eye-grazing curly fringe falling into her face. Riele is a young starlet to watch for her Natural hairstyles. Style Tip: If you don’t have the length to get the volume of Riele’s bun, try using extensions to achieve the fullness you desire.

Grey Is The New Black
April 20, 2018

This smooth and silken lob is exactly the style you’ve been looking for! Ebony roots are seamlessly transformed into a vivid grey tone using the ombré technique. Hair is given an exaggerated part and styled into a volume-packed lob that curves under slightly at the ends. Styled by @i_am_ty_the_artist_29 at The Salon by Instyle inside JCPenney.

GORGEOUS SPIRALS
April 19, 2018

Tracee Ellis Ross Shows Off Her Voluminous Curls

Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross looks amazing with her plush, dark curls. The Golden Globe award-winning actress has her espresso-hued spirals framing her face. The look is finished with Tracee’s signature bold lip. Style Tip: There’s no such thing as too much volume. Take a cue from Tracee, and take your Natural hair to new heights by picking out the texture or simply running your hands through curls to separate and arrange them into place.

Joan Smalls Brings Back The ‘90s With This Chic Updo!

Gorgeous model Joan Smalls looks retro chic with this sleek and sophisticated ‘90s- inspired look reminiscent of the 90s supermodel era (think Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks!). Joan’s version of the coif has her chocolate strands parted on the side with leave-out lengths in the front shaped into a side-swept bang. The rest of the hair is bushed up into a twisted topknot. Style Tip: Create a similar high bun by pulling hair into a ponytail and twisting it around itself. Pin into place with a few bobby pins. Flat iron bangs for a smooth finish.
