Weave Couture


Step out in style with a gorgeous blonde-highlighted fringe in this simple, yet edgy, style by Caprice King of C.H.O.W. Bella in Washington, D.C.

Hair is braided down and a human hair full weave is sewn in. Next, strands are razor cut and texturized, creating a bob shape that is detailed with a clip-in side fringe highlighted with a look-at-me platinum hue. Using a flat iron, the coif is lightly “bumped” to call attention to subtle layering. An edge tamer is applied to make the hair lay down.



Melissa Forney

After working on some of the hottest films and television shows including Selma, Think Like A Man Too and True Jackson, VP, hair pro Melissa Forney was sought after by director Lee Daniels to become the leading hairstylist for FOX’s hit drama Empire.

Getting into the celebrity hair business may be a difficult venture, but Forney has great advice for aspiring stylists…

“Follow your dreams. If you want to do it, I feel like you should go after it. You have to be positive and professional. If you follow your dreams, you can do it.”
