Justine Skye Is Working Her Signature Coif Color!

R&B singer Justine Skye looks stylish with her purple tresses tucked behind her ears spotted at the Diesel Black Gold show in Milan. The “Back For More” songstress looks on trend with her signature coif color—thanks to Pantone naming Ultra Violet as the “Color Of The Year!” So is it a coincidence Justine’s debut album (releasing Jan. 19th) is aptly dubbed Ultraviolet? We’ll leave that for you to ponder! Style Tip: Want to try on Justine’s hip hair hue—but don’t feel like permanently going purple? They try using extensions or wigs to get the hair hue you desire.

Niecy Nash Looks Flawless In A Blunt Bob

Claws star Niecy Nash debuted a new chin length bob cut at the Critics Choice Awards. The actress’ new look is a lovely departure from her usual voluminous wavy mane. No doubt we’ll see Niecy back in inches for her TV show, but we’re enjoying the length change. Style Tip: When wearing such a statement cut, make sure your makeup is on point…all the more to draw attention to your beautiful face!

Eve Looks Gorgeous With Subtle Ombre Waves

Eve looks amazing with her subtle ombre mane with the color crafted by Edmund “The Hair Boss” and styling by Angela Christine. The Talk host’s hair color starts off as a deep espresso hue before fading into a vivid violet at the ends. The color is put on further display with her hair parted down the middle and curled into defined waves. Style Tip: When playing with super-trendy balayage or ombre color (like Eve), try more of a subtle hue—like deep violet or a matte navy—to get a slightly natural look.

Taraji Stuns On The Big Screen

When it comes to flaunting fierceness and style on the big screen no one does it better than actress Taraji P. Henson. For her latest movie role in the drama Proud Mary (which hit theaters yesterday), Taraji worked with celebrity hair pro Tym Wallace to bring her fierce character to life. “She’s so easy to work with, she’s super hilarious. It’s work but it’s not work because she makes it so pleasant,” details Wallace, who’s been with Taraji on three of her films. For more on-set styling info about Taraji’s look in Proud Mary, check out our exclusive convo with the celebrity hair pro in the February ‘18 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!

Eva Marcille Looks Radiant With Her Golden Waves

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Eva Marcille looks phenomenal with her golden nutmeg curls. Eva’s gorgeous mane is parted on the side and curled into defined waves over her shoulders. The entire look is finished with a subtle glam eye and mauve lip. Style Tip: Get a similar look by wrapping blown-out hair around a curling wand. Once the entire head is curled, set the look with a light mist of hairspray.
