4 FAVE FACES TO WATCH FOR ON FALL TV
August 31, 2016

Call it a “recurring role,” a “cameo” or a “guest” spot…With the new Fall television season on the horizon, here are four familiar faces you’ll be seeing more of on your favorite TV shows.

1 Mary J. Blige is flexing her acting chops again—thanks to a guest star role in the upcoming third season of “How To Get Away With Murder.” The singer/songwriter’s storyline on the show is still hush-hush but word is her role involves a new mystery set to unfold.

 
2 Aisha Hinds, the “Under The Dome” alum, will have a recurring guest star role on Season 2 of the show “Underground.” Aisha will take on the pivotal role of Harriet Tubman, the legendary Underground Railroad conductor.

 
3 & 4 Phylicia Rashad & Taye Diggs are serving up a heaping dose of drama for “Cookie” and “Lucious” on this upcoming season of “Empire.” Guest star Phylicia will portray “Diana Dubois,” a powerhouse from one of New York’s oldest and most prominent African-America families—and the mother of ambitious city councilman “Angelo Dubois” (with guest star Taye Diggs in the role).

HAIR RESTORATION IS HERE!
August 30, 2016

hair restoration is here 

For those battling hair loss, the struggle is real. And for some, the answer may just be hair transplants. Dr. William Yates, of Dr. Yates Health Science Group in Chicago, is a board-certified hair restoration surgeon (pictured here, center) who is a hair transplant patient himself. And, he understands the importance of how appearance and self-confidence can be linked. In a recent Facebook Live story video featuring celebrity makeup artist Marcus Geeter (left) and Dena Dodd, founder of Pop-N-Go and Yogashero, Dr. Yates shares just some of the ways hair restoration can help with hair loss. Check out the video on Pop-N-Go’s Facebook page for more info!

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS A PONYTAIL?
August 28, 2016

can you believe this is a ponytail

Look closer…

 

 

Hair pro Amanda Jackson, of She’s International Salon located in Charlotte, NC, created a gorgeous coif illusion with this full-boded look. At first glance what you see is a fabulous ‘Fro. But look closer…The style is actually crafted using two drawstring Afro Puffs! Natural mane is pulled off the face and the two ponytail puffs were positioned closely, side by side, to achieve the beautiful volume resulting in this amazing Afro silhouette. Love it!

Sometimes, We Could All Go A Little Avant-Garde

 

 

This feathery crown is best reserved for the runway. But that doesn’t mean we can’t admire the artistry and skill that went into the look! This fierce coif was crafted by hair pro Sal Misseri and served as an entry to this year’s North American Hairstyling Awards.
