Natural Hair

Look of the Month

Close, Natural cuts are becoming the boldest hair trend of the moment. Celebs, beauty influencers and style campaigns are all celebrating short styles. Check out this chic shave by Charlotte Mensah, of Hair Lounge in London, UK.


Step 1:
After a Big Chop, the model began growing out her locks. To begin style pro Mensah detangled tresses with a wide-tooth comb before shampooing and towel drying hair.


Step 2:
Hair was then drenched in a deep, blue-black hair color. Once the color was developed and rinsed out, a conditioner was applied to damp hair and combed through.


Step 3:
Mensah then used clippers to trim down sides and back to give the coif an overall fresh shape and to clean up the nape area.

Step 4: Finish

A light oil is added throughout to finish. The final silhouette is a beautiful short cut awash in a rich, luxurious color.



Vivian Green

Songstress Vivian Green is back on the music scene with her sixth studio album, VGVI. The R&B hit-maker’s modern mane is what style dreams are made of. Check out the star’s hairstyle secrets.

  • “I cut my hair short when I was in the 10th grade—probably upset over some boy—and I wanted to start fresh.”
  • “The one time I wore a weave I was growing my hair our, because I didn’t like that mid-length phase. This was back during my second album, Vivian, in 2005. I received so much hate and backlash for doing so. My fans were not feeling it.”
