Justine Skye Looks Lovely With Her Bold Bob!

Singer Justine Skye is never one to stick with one hairstyle (though she does stay loyal to her signature purple hair hue). The “Don’t Think About It” singer looks fashion-forward with her violet mane transformed into a sleek, blunt bob featuring slightly graduated lengths. Full bangs barely graze her lashes for an alluring finish. Style Tip: A bold new haircut will always refresh your style. A classic blunt bob with a full fringe is always in style.

Chyna Layne Proves That She’s Gotta Have It When It Comes To Her Hair!

Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It star Chyna Layne looks chic showing off her long, loose waves. Her hair is parted on the side and swept over to one section in the front to lightly frame her face, while the other section is tucked behind her ear. The Netflix actress never keeps the same ‘do, switching from sleek bobs to waist length waves. Chyna is definitely one to watch for hair inspiration. Style Tip: Get a similar hairstyle by first applying a heat protectant to freshly washed and blow-dried hair. Take a curling iron and style the hair into tight spirals, and then brush out the curls to create loose waves.

She’s So Chic!

The Paynes’ Stephanie Charles is absolutely stunning with her long, Natural curls pulled up into a partial updo here. Loose spirals spring forth from the center and cascade down the side of her face for a fun and flirty look. Sophisticate’s Black Hair got the chance to talk to the OWN network actress in the September 2018 issue. Get to know how she styles her Natural hair and how she protects her strands on set when working—on sale now! Tip: This issue will soon go bye-bye so grab your copy of the September 2018 issue while you can!


Chocolate Curved
September 21, 2018

Romantic and effortless curls will always be haute. Mocha strands are snipped into a lightweight bang in front and shoulder-kissing length in back. Medium-sized, defined curls tumble perfectly for a simple, easy to recreate style. Styled by Shonta “Mona James” Hair, from The Salon By InStyle in Lewisville, TX.

Supermodel Rose Bertram’s Natural Lions Mane Of Golden Curls…

One of the easiest ways to help your Natural hair pop is to add some gorgeous color! Top model Rose Bertram takes a break on set with her butterscotch-blonde ombre curls flowing around her head. The balayage blonde spirals offset her mocha roots to create a striking contrast, which helps to bring more definition to her hair. Style Tip: When coloring your Natural strands, the process can sometimes change up your Natural hair texture. Be prepared to revamp your washday routine.

Tracee Ellis Ross Gives Us Simple Elegance…

Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross shows us how a simple look can still turn heads. The Golden Globe award-winning actress has her strands brushed back into a large bun. A simple pair of hoops and a purple lip draw eyes directly to her gorgeous face—thanks to the hairstyle’s chic simplicity. Style Tip: When pulling your hair away from the face, make sure you pair the style with a bold eye (or lip!) to draw the attention to your fave feature.
