Lira’s Fresh Cut
September 27, 2016
South African songstress Lira has always been a mane style inspo when it came to the TWA. So when the music star posted her newly snipped Natural we just had to take a closer look…Parted low on the side, Lira went even shorter (yes, it’s possible!) and more streamlined (and it looks oh-so sexy) with her crop. Do you like? We love!

The Weeknd Has A New ‘Do! Wanna see it?
September 22, 2016
The Weeknd then…
The Weeknd now.
The “Starboy” cover art…The Weeknd’s third studio album.
Music star The Weeknd has whipped music fans into a frenzy by sharing the album title and art for his highly anticipated new music. The 26-year-old Canadian’s forthcoming studio album is dubbed “Starboy.” But what has hair fashion fans doing a double take: He cut off his iconic hairstyle! Yes. That’s right, those striking locs that became part of The Weeknd’s signature look are gone. Clip, clip…buzzed, no more. In its place is a modern version of the classic high-top Fade—shaped close at the sides, a hint of “pompadour” action at the crown, some nice texture along the top. Like it?
